In November: ”Belinichy orphanage”

Posted: November 29, 2019 by Dzmitry Nachyna in Belinichy

Once it turned cold, it became more and more difficult to get outside, but it didn’t impact our meetings with the guys. So every week, as usually, we met with them. Our lesson topics were ”Noah’s ark”, “The tower of Babel”, “Moses”. Though the guys were familiar with these topics there was no lack of interest. Through Noah’s story we emphasized that God hates sin, but sees and loves people loyal to him. Then they answered the questions and for every right answer they were allowed to “save” one pair of paper animals, which were stuck on the poster with the ark. They tried to do their best to get that animals.One more interesting moment was during the story about the tower of Babel. Everyone was allowed to speak any language one knew. English, German, Italian, even French were used. Then we found out we did not understand each other.It is when our story about the tower began. I memorized the boy Vanya’s prayer at the end of the lesson. In his prayer he wanted the school to change, so that it would be peace instead of feud and misunderstanding like in Babilon. It was really sincere and touching. Despite other children’s mockery he continued praying and then it became quiet. I hope everyone heard that short and honest prayer and changings will take place. Changings in the hearts of the guys and the educators first. The older guys discussed “Revenge”, “Fears”, “Envy”, “Greed” which are simple, but always actual and important topics.We’re praying for changings in the children’s hearts and glad we can be with them and be a little part of their lives.
