In September: ”Belinichy orphanage”

Posted: September 30, 2019 by Dzmitry Nachyna in Belinichy

The studying year has began and we are happy to see open children’s hearts. Moreover, the administration and the workers of the orphanage are nor against our visits and even contribute to the children’s attendance of our meetings. At first, it was a little bit hard to deal with the children’s behavior but it was not because we can’t handle it or the children are so bad. Actually, they behaved like this because they hadn’t seen us for two months and were so excited to see us again. They went to state camps or spent the holiday in Italy. Surely, they missed us so much and they wanted to share their news. Graduates left school and the rest of the children started one more year at school. Some new children came to the school this year. They were taken from troublesome families or other orphanages. So, the children were eager to share the school news, tell about summer holiday and their personal worries.This study year we divide the children into two groups for younger and older ones, as it was last year. In September, we have had a few meetings where we spoke about gossip and laziness. Both topics appeared to be actual for all of them because mostly they are talented, despite their intellectual and physical disabilities. However, often they don’t develop their abilities just because they are lazy to do or change something in their lives. Gossip is a huge problem of these children! They often talk about each other behind their backs and spread gossip. As a result, they constantly face betrayal and disappointment! Our task is to show the children God’s view of the problem and give them practical advice how to cope with laziness and avoid gossip, which is so unpleasant to God. Besides, we organized a relay race at one of the meeting for the children of different ages. We like sports very much because during such activities we can not only spend a good time with the children but also get to know their characters and notice their reaction to victory and loss. It helps us to see what we need to work on for the glory of God!
