In February: “Smilovichi orphanage”

Posted: February 29, 2020 by Dzmitry Nachyna in Smilovichi

Greetings, brothers and sisters, thank God for the opportunity to serve God with you!  This month we had 5 trips to Smilovichi shelter.  I am glad that God opens the hearts of children to be open to words and to change their lives.  We had one meeting dedicated to the faith of Abraham, and then talked about Joseph.  We combined these two topics in order to show the children that despite the difficulties and trials in life, God has everything under control.  The history of children is the history of failure of upbringing and the choice of the wrong way for parents.  Children tend to put all the blame on themselves, but we want to help the children overcome the crisis in which they are.  Stories help children see their situation through the example of other people described in the Bib

le.  Joseph’s betrayals – this event stopped for a long time after him, many people have also experienced this.  We talked about our feelings, talked about who we are asking for help and how we transfer this event.  We realized that this place is the most painful in which the children are so in need of forgiveness and healing.  Sometimes we are not allowed to talk about it!  But only after talking abput it the child gets the opportunity for full awareness and, accordingly, healing.  We also talked about forgiveness and for many children it’s hard to forgive their relatives, as  misunderstanding of their relatives leads to a dead end.  Why it is hard to forgive?  Children think that if they do not forgive, it will be worse for parents or relatives!  But this is not so; we see how the children are tormented by these situations.  God gives wisdom to have such situations to show children what will happen or will not happen when we forgive.  Our team sees how much work should be done to restore the soul.  God wants the children be free, but they do not understand because of anger and resentment!  Concluding the story of Joseph, we said that it was God who played the main role in the forgiveness and reconciliation of Joseph and the brothers.  And we showed the children that having intimacy with God, we can overcome any difficulties. I am glad that God works in the Smilovichi shelter, we see that change is overtaking children.  The great thing that we see is  when a person forgives his offenders, God reassures the children.  And now the children are becoming calmer and their behavior is getting better as  their memory. Thank you for praying for us and supporting us!  Thank God.
