In April: “Vileyka orphanage”

Posted: April 30, 2023 by Dzmitry Nachyna in Vileyka

Greetings dear brothers and sisters. We are grateful to you for your participation in the ministry of the gospel to the orphans. Thank photo_2023-05-03 00.57.57God that He allows us to visit children, gives strength both spiritual and physical, encourages, opens the doors of boarding schools and brings people who would like to participate in this ministry – please pray so that God would support the team, give wisdom, love, friendliness and children could receive God’s blessing through this, when they see a good example in us.  God has a special attitude towards orphans, as He says many times in the Scripture: Isaiah 1:17 “Learn to practice what is good; seek justice, photo_2023-05-03 00.57.18alleviate oppression, defend orphans in court, and plead the widow’s case.” This month we made meetings and talked about the miracles of Jesus. The first miracle we talked about was the “Wonderful Catch” we talked about trusting the word of God. Being disciples, despite the fact that they have been fishermen for all their life, they trusted the Carpenter and the result surprised everyone. This story revealed the Divinity of Jesus, and also the fact that trusting the word of God changes circumstances. When photo_2023-05-03 00.57.41we arrived another time, we talked about the friendship of Jesus and Lazarus, told the children about the resurrection of Lazarus and that Jesus had friends in his earthly life. The story of Lazarus gives us hope that when we die, Jesus will raise us from the dead. Also this month we talked about the importance of the Easter holiday in Christianity. We tried to explain why this holiday is so dear to all people. We talked about the importance of the death of Jesus Christ, that thanks to the obedience of Jesus and His death on the cross, redemption from sins took place.
And the resurrection of Christ shows us that death was defeated and each of us has hope for salvation. We see in our country that people usually do not understand the Easter holiday correctly, this is why we have paid so much attention to reach out to the guys. Easter is not eggs, not buns, but Christ who died and rose again. We talked Eaw3AsS6vQIabout what would have happened if Jesus hadn’t died, and the guys said that we would all die. I thank God that we could play games with children, be friends with them, sing Christian songs, pray and talk to them about Jesus Christ. We are grateful to God that there were quite a lot of children, about 20. We are glad that those who are interested and who have questions come. We see that children come with their b7gehWU4aLwteachers who watch us and we show God’s love and care with our lives. We pray and believe that the word of God works in the hearts of not only children, but also educators. It’s great that many children treat us as close friends since we go to them every week and we have become like relatives for many, as part of the family, we feel it in relationships and conversations. Some children are especially attentive when the Word is spoken, but others unfortunately do not listen and it is clear that they are not very interested in it. But we hope that God uses according to His will the truths that they have heard and that we have explained to them in sincerity of heart. We are glad that the event that they had at the same time as our classes was canceled and now more children come to us. May God help us to continue to do this ministry.
