In May: “Smilovichy orphanage”

Posted: June 3, 2019 by Dzmitry Nachyna in Smilovichi

    We continue our weekly trips to the orphanage and enjoy the opportunity to openly share the Good News with the children and conduct Bible study classes.  Listening to the children, we realized that they live in fear: the fear of being in an orphanage, the fear of never seeing their parents again, fear of the dark, people and many others.

     In order to help them to overcome their fears, we have prepared answers to this topic and explained them how to pray to Heavenly Father – Our Protector, who is always with us and He has many angels for each of us.  Also, each of us ga

ve examples from his life about how the Lord guarded and gave courage in various situations.  In subsequent meetings, the children told us about their victories, that they no longer sleep with the light, because before going to bed they pray and ask for the protection of the Lord.

Even this month, we conducted creative activities and taught the children weaving, making toys, mosaic paintings and creating figures.  We believe that such activities are very important for their development and sensory perception of the external world.

Last week, we talked about friendship, and also what the real friendship is, which God has intended.  Olya said that she did not believe in true friendship, because when she was taken to an orphanage, all her friends turned away and stopped being friends with her.  She had frustration and unforgiveness.  Together with the team, we helped Olya to understand what the secret of friendship is and how to choose friends correctly.  We also helped her to forgive betrayal and ask the Lord for true friends!

In May “Rudensk orphanage”

Posted: June 3, 2019 by Dzmitry Nachyna in Rudensk

In May there were many trips to the Rudensk orphanage. The art lessons were held for the younger children. Also we have covered some very important topics. At the end of the April there was a wonderful holiday – Easter, that is why we invited a puppet show and gave gifts to the children, we also decided to dedicate the very first week of May to this holiday. Both younger and older children received Bible lessons, in which the children became more familiar with the feat of Jesus Christ at Calvary. At subsequent meetings with the older children, the following topics were covered: “Jesus loves children,” “The life and ministry

of the disciples of Jesus after His resurrection.” The younger children talked about “fears”, as well as “loyalty in friendship.” May

pleased us with warm, sunny weather, so

many children wanted to run away to the street. But despite this, they still remained faithful and did not miss our meetings! Soon graduates will pass the last school exams. Some of them feel very worried about what waits them outside of the school. Some children will go to study in different cities, some of them will immediately go to work, and someone will have to go to a disabled home. Seeing the experiences of graduates, we made a common prayer for them at the last meeting in May. We hope that the seed that has been sown in the hearts of these children will give their fruits and they will open their hearts to Heavenly Father!
