In September: “Smilovichi orphanage”

Posted: September 30, 2020 by Dzmitry Nachyna in Smilovichi

Since September, the doors of the Smilovichi shelter have been opened again for our team after quarantine. For six months we could not visit the children, but we could help them and take care of everyone. During this time, we bought a greenhouse for the orphanage and all summer the children had fresh vegetables from their garden. We also also provided them with hand antiseptics and hygiene products. Now there is only one girl by the name Alina left in the orphanage, and all the other children were returned to their families by a court decision. Thank God! Their parents decided to quit their bad habits, find a job, and restore their relationship with their children.

Alina’s situation is more complicated, her own mother is in prison and will not be released soon. Over the past few years, Alina has been in two foster families and in each family she hadn’t good relationship with her foster parents, and a new pain and disappointment came. When we talked to her about God and His love, Alina said that she began to pray every day and seek communion with God. In fact, before meeting us she had never been to Church and never prayed. She says that none of the Bible lessons we taught were in vain and that her relationships with other people and especially God has been changed. Also she feels better about herself.
