In March: “Vileyka orphanage”

Posted: March 30, 2023 by Dzmitry Nachyna in Vileyka

In March we were regularly visiting Vileyka. Our Friday meetings continue for 1-1,5 hours and take the following turn. Right from mNzBbrqOUqAthe entrance the kids are running to meet us and we hug themRQI2E1ofOIM and invite to the assembly hall. We begin with a welcoming word, an ice-breaker (getting to know each other, or any other activity to engage everyone) and common games. Singing altogether is an essential part of our agenda. One of the kids’ favorite songs that they would ask us to sing again and again – “Each New Day Airplanes Take Off”.RQI2E1ofOIM
We gave out Children’s Bibles to a lot of kids. We assign texts for the coming week from the Bibles we gave out to the children so that they would read them during the week. And on Friday we have a quiz for those who read the text. And those who actively participate in the quest – get sweet awards. After the quiz we have our Bible class. In March we were telling the kids about the miracles Jesus made while He was on the earth. We really wanted the children to realize that Jesus is not some kind of an ancient sage but He is real and He lives and can work powerful things in their lives. For example, the story about Jairus’s daughter teaches us that faith is more powerful than all doubts and fears.
Very often, tutors attend our meetings with the kids. They are very polite and appreciate our effort.
During one of our March meeting, a 8-10 year old boy approached us and showed us a sheet of paper where he noted down his thoughts about God entitling his essay “God and Us”. Hleb wrote that heaven is life and hell is death. God is peace and life. We believe in God and we are God’s friends. We want to live in the world where there is no war. We are peaceful people….
