In October: “Rudensk orphanage”

Posted: October 31, 2020 by Dzmitry Nachyna in Rudensk

Hello dear reader! Thank God that this month we had the opportunity to go to the boarding school. But unfortunately, due to the situation with covid-19, it was not possible to stay there for a full month. Dear brothers and sisters, let us pray that this virus soon loses its power and be gone! Thanks to every person who prays for children and our team. Every time we come to school, we see that the children start to rejoice and smile. When we see them, they run and hug us and talk about how they are doing. It’s so great to watch their emotions because they are sincere! This month we continued to talk about David with the children. We remembered who David was, the guys said that God was with David, and this was expressed in deeds. For example: when a lion or a bear attacked David, He killed them with his bare hands. The guys also recalled that if there are any difficulties in life, then you need to turn to God, and He will definitely help! The second case was in the classroom, I was telling the children a story about David and Goliath. And there was such a moment. From history, when King Saul asked David why do you think that you will defeat him? I asked the children what do you think? What did David say? And the Children say “I will win it, because God is with me” and then I asked this, why will he win? And the children answer “because God is with me” and I asked a couple of times, and the guys were so inspired and straight, shouting that God is with them, and He will help in any situation. It was a bit like in a medieval movie about war when knights stand against each other and they are motivated to win, and they shout like “God is with us”. I think the guys will remember this for the rest of their lives, that God is with them, and He will help them if they turn to Him. With the adolecents, we talked about the importance of dreaming. Because when we dream, then we more specifically understand what we want to achieve in life. And when we reveal our good plans and dreams to God, then He will help, because for God nothing is impossible. The main thing is to build a personal relationship with God, trust Him and also take steps towards God and your dream. Beside this the adolecents had an autumn photo session. For them, it was something unexpected and joyful at the same time. At the begining some guys were a little embarrassed when they were photographed, but after a while they did it with great pleasure. Also this month we met with some graduates of the Rudensky boarding school who are now studying or working in different cities. The life of the guys after graduating from the boarding school goes in different ways. They find themselves in a variety of living conditions or in circumstances that are still difficult for them to cope with on their own. That is why we try to pay special attention to graduates. I really liked the meeting with the guys who are now in Vileika. We managed to gather the children in a local church and introduce them to a pastor who gladly accepts orphans and helps boarding school graduates. We could freely and in simplicity communicate with the children, eat pizza together, drink tea and learn about how their life is going after leaving the boarding school. In the end, we prayed with them, and then gave out some gift sets to the guys. The guys exchanged phone numbers with the pastor from Vileika. We really hope that they will be open to God and start attending the local church. Be blessed!
