In May “Rudensk orphanage”

Posted: June 1, 2022 by Dzmitry Nachyna in Rudensk

In May I had trips to Rudensk. We presented a series of topics about Daniel. Most of the times I was IMG_20220518_201954responsible for the games. We also held a Banana party – active game-contest. The guys had been asking for such activity for a long time and were very happy. The younger ones were spectators and the older ones were participants, but in the end everyone got prizes — bananas! During discussions of the topics we told the guys about Daniel’s faithfulness and love for God and aboutIMG_20220518_192208 the importance of such relationships. While we prayed together a younger boy named Sasha came up to me and said that he also wanted to pray with us but he was too shy to stand out. Eventually he joined our prayer and asked God for reunion with his parents. I keep on interacting with him whenever I come to the orphanage and I can see that he is very attentive and sincere child. So I was very moved by this prayer. No matter how good they feel outside of their families all children still dream of a real family. But now Sasha knows he can speak to God and ask Him to involve. Let his prayer be answered!

IMG_20220518_192836I would also like to mention that the children sincerely miss us, always wait for us and are happy to have time with us.This month two new guys joined us during our visit to Rudensk. We hope that they may become part of our team in the future. On the way to the orphanage, we told them a lot about the children there and disabilities these kids have. They shared their worries that it would be too hard for them and they were especially worried about how the children would reactIMG-43318d50cf0e0d39ebdc02d4da21c83d-V to them. When we arrived at the orphanage from the very first minutes both older and younger kids surrounded our new guyes, started getting to know them, complimenting them, hugging them and telling them about themselves. Personally I was touched and amazed at that moment, because at those very moments, I especially admired how these children, despite the pain they have gone through and all the wounds that were inflicted on them in childhood by their closest people, can so easily accept, love and open their hearts to new people! Sometimes, we – adults, who have everything we need to live, whose freedom IMG_20220518_194323is not restricted, who have someone waiting and loving at home, are not able to accept and love as much as these children! Through all of this, we have once again seen that we are not the only ones who teach orphans something new, but that everyone has something to learn from them as well! So we thank God for the good lessons He is teaching us through orphans! We are also thankful to everyone who takes part in our ministry, who donates their resources, time, and finances!
