In December: “Smilovichi orphanage”

Posted: December 31, 2022 by Dzmitry Nachyna in Smilovichi

Our trips to the orphanage in December were very friendly and we see how the Lord opens their xhop2Vd3Rgghearts to us. They trust us and tell BJMq_-mmj_stheir stories, share their joys or experience. We rejoice that God’s love flows through us and heals their hearts, fills the void inside every child! The first two weeks we completed a series of topics about the life of David and Saul, reflecting on where God was in the difficulties that David faced, because he loved God. The guys drew parallels between the reign of Saul and his character, as well as the reign of David. We realized that without a close relationship with God it is very difficult to be a king or other influential person, because only God gives wisdom, love for people and humility, which is so lacking for those who have been entrusted with power.

We broke false beliefs about Santa Claus, different heroes of fairy tales and spoke the truth. The children didnt know that the Savior was born on this day and that he was the Son of God, who agreed to live the life of a man, be brutally killed by people (his own creation), resurrect and continue to love us all. Alesya, she is 10 years old, she was very surprised that Jesus was born in a barn, because He could be born in the best palace on earth. We explained that God showed his accessibility to any person, that he loves not only rich, but also poor people, that for the sake of love for us, Jesus is ready for anything!!!

We bought a cake and lit candles and thanked God together for His Son Jesus Christ. At the table, we talked, answered questions, ate and rejoiced that we could be with these children and show them how families celebrate Christmas.

Of course, the moment when the guys opened the gifts was the most joyful and emotional, they were happy with everything, even a regular pen for writing or toothpaste, and we were pleased to watch them and be participants in God’s plan for the lives of these wonderful guys. Praise God and Merry Jesus Christ!!!
