In November:“Smilovichi orphanage”

Posted: November 30, 2019 by Dzmitry Nachyna in Smilovichi

Greetings brothers and sisters! I thank God for the opportunity to serve Him and spread His Kingdom on earth! In November we had the opportunity to serve in Smilovichy orphanage. It is so joyful to see God moving and doing his work! Yarik and Paulina – older children, often asked us such questions as: “Why are we in the orphanage? Why did God allow such a situation in their lives?” Indeed, as children they don’t deserve to live in the orphanage. Not childish questions encourage us to hold non-standard meetings. This month we have destroyed the delusion that have permeated every orphanage. Almost all of the children in the orphanages think that God is evil, He seeks out our mistakes and then punishes us. Once during our conversation with Yarik he said: “Maybe we did something wrong and God is punishing us and that’s why we are in the orphanage now.” I said:  ” Yarik and Pauline, God is a loving Father who doesn’t want His children to perish.” After we kept telling them that God is pure and His thoughts towards us are pure. He wants us to have a correct idea of Him. That evening we prayed to their mother could solve all the problems quiсkly and be able to take them from the shelter. Another deception was over! The devil slanders and deceives children and people, but God is not like the devil, He is loving and compassionate. We talked for a long time with the guys, and then I advised them to pray and told them that God hears prayers and answers them. God is omnipresent, and He will definitely help. When we arrived at the orphanage next time, we found out that Yarik and Paulina were taken by their mother . God allows different moments to happen, so  children can see God’s reality and believe in His love and power. Faith and prayer always lead to change. I’m glad for guys being homes! Let us pray that the sprouts of faith will bear fruit at the time! Also this month three more children were brought. They are brothers and sister. In the photo you can see children who have never heard of God in their lives. We are so glad that we can come and talk about God to them. And later, as a result we can see delight in children’s eyes when they realize that God is real! “Dima, tell me who God is? Is He strong? Can He protect me when I’m scared? And does God have angels? Are they beautiful?”- so many simple questions that children are interesting in. We told a story about Adam and Eve, and then we painted a picture with a biblical plot and it was interesting how the children were retelling the story during the painting.  Many words were swallowed, and some words were poorly pronounced.  But God was especially felt in that place.  Then we were discussing Cain and Avel.  How envy destroys not only friendship, but even brothers become enemies.  But the purpose of this lesson was to help them learn how to speak when they feel bad, sad or ask if they want something, but not to steal and fight.  We told them how parents teach children not to be upset, but to say everything that they feel so that anger or envy won’t reach and destroy them.  It seems that the children are waiting for us every Tuesday and expecting new biblical stories from us. Every child may be changed!  Look at the photos on our website, pray for the children that they will be found by a loving family!  God bless you!
