In September: ”Belinichy orphanage”

Posted: September 30, 2021 by Dzmitry Nachyna in Belinichy

Hello to you, brothers and sisters!

I am grateful to God, who blessed us to start a new study year at the Belynichi orphanage school. Our meetings began with saying goodbye to the graduates. When we came, the graduates who were about to LxGPUdTsOpoleave were still at the orphanage. We arranged a separate meeting for them. The guys gathered together and shared their worries with us. ‘We are a bit scared as we have spent all our lives at the orphanage’, Igor said. Vika says: ‘I am worried about our acceptance at college’. Olya was silent and just mentioned that she would miss the school and the teacher who had been like a mum to her. Lyosha, who has been at the orphanage for five years, said: ‘I am glad that I am leaving. It’s just Og83dvAAgToa new stage in my life’. We recalled the times when we had met and how spent the time together. One of the teenagers said ‘Thank you so much for praying for us and telling us about God’. These words took a special place in my heart. You don’t hear something like this every day. Unfortunately, we didn’t see some graduates as they had already left. Anyway, when we were leaving the school, Igor, who had graduated from the school a year ago, gave us a ring through the school phone. He wanted to talk with us. oO8N6mUhiYEHis first question was: ‘Dima, do you pray for us?’ I said to him: ‘Of course, we pray for you. We would visit you but we can’t due to coronavirus’. Igor said that he prayed with other people too. Igor said that he missed school. He had dreamt of becoming a watchman, but he got into the nursing home because of his diagnosis.

When we came the next time, all the children were running towards us. They told us that they had been missing us. We organized a sports competition for them. The hall was full of people. All the participants were involved and supported their teams. H3ju3prezMMWe have noticed that we can see the children from different perspectives when they play games. They are more open. We could see that they supported each other and when someone was failing, the team members were shouting his name and clapping their hands to encourage their teammate. The teachers told us ‘We haven’t seen our children so happy xgZiU_ekJNgfor a long time’. We could see that these tasks helped to create stronger connections between the children and brought a lot of joy to them. This year we decided to have meetings devoted to the book of Genesis with the topics of Creation, Adam and Eve, and the first sin. We want to help the children understand who the Creator is, what the first sin is, and why we suffer. We’ve noticed that there are more children with Down Syndrome this year. We are praying with the team that God will give us wisdom on how to give the lessons to themlZzrk2l346c that they can grasp the information.We had a call with the school authorities on the last Thursday of this month and they told us that the children had started to get sick, so we didn’t come to them the last time. Brothers and sisters, let’s pray that the pandemic will stop and we can plant more seeds of faith and hope in the hearts of these children through our ministry.

Thank you so much for your prayers and words of encouragement!
