Thanksgiving

This Sunday, we had Thanksgiving in our local Bible Baptist Church Charity. It was so beautiful and so wonderful day!!!

It was so great when young people helped decorate the hall and to clean as well! :) They are such a wonderful blessing!


There was a sermon at the service, children and adults praised God. There were also many amazing testimonies about what God has done over the past year.




Our hearts were filled with incredible joy and gratitude to see and hear how God works in the lives of young people!


Many people have been invited. Many unbelievers have come to praise God together. It was so wonderful to see a lot of young hearts! It came many more souls than we expected! We did not have free space and did not even have enough chairs! Some had to stand during church service. Wow!!!
Every soul is precious in the eyes of the Lord. We had almost 50 souls! Awesome! :) Our hearts sang praising God!


In the end we had the Dinner of love. No one was left hungry. ♥

We have a tradition that after the holiday all fruits and vegetables were distributed to the neediest families and orphans. Many precious souls got the bag of fruits and veggies.

Of course everyone was happy and grateful! ♥




It was amazing and so beautiful day! We praise and thank God for His mercy and goodness to our small but lovely family!!! ♥

P.S.Since our church is 80% of graduates of orphanages, different age. Many young people suffer and face various difficulties.We would be so thankful for your prayers for the spiritual growth of Christians and the salvation of those who do not know the Lord Jesus personally. Thank you very much! ♥♥♥

Update about little Elijah

THANK YOU!!! A HUGE heartfelt thanks to all, who participated and helped raise the necessary funds for little Elijah! God made a miracle and we were able to collect the required amount in a short time!!! Wow!!! Amazing!!!
You are doing a huge impact and give chance to live the precious little Elijah!!! ♥

Little boy feels not well... Attacks of epilepsy do not stop. In addition, he acquired another disease due to hormonal drugs. Cushing's disease. He is rapidly gaining weight, which is not good for the baby. We were told that it is very dangerous to perform the surgery for him in such state. The baby spends most of the time in the hospitals. :(


We talked with several neurosurgeon specialists. And all are talking about one thing, the baby needs brain surgery... The other day, Kiev experts said that they are ready to do the surgery! So very fast! Thus, the baby is preparing for it and will soon be sent to Kiev. We don`t know the details yet.

Please, pray that God will prepare the precious baby for the surgery, his body, spirit and mind. Also so that God would give His perfect peace in the hearts of parents. That the name of the Lord be glorified through this situation. God loves Elijah and comforts him. He had a dreams at night several times that Angels came to him. Recently, he dreamed that there was a lot of light from above and many angels came to him and they had dinner with him. Oh, my! How lovely! It comforts the heart to seeing the love of God to the little lovie. ♥♥♥

Hope for little Elijah...

Our hearts are absolutely broken these days...I can not find words to describe what we feel these days. My heart is squeezing from indescribable pain. It beyond words... My eyes are full of tears.  It hurts. Very much...

  Many of you know (from Facebook posts) about the situation of the little Elijah and thanks to God's grace, many hot prayers and generous donations, the kid is still alive...

About six months ago or so, the kid was an active boy, played games, laughed and lived like all the children. But over time, he became worse. We began to notice strange things in the behavior of the little boy.

We saw how he got worse every day ... The boy was very tired, every 15 minutes there were epileptic seizures, because of seizures he could not sleep, he started talking badly, there were days when his body refused food, he could not swallow and all the food went back, the body did not obey the child, he could not walk, fell constantly, could not sit, began to lose sight... He was in intensive care many times for this period... Not once we thought that we had lose little angel...He could not breathe and the doctors used an oxygen mask. Doctors fighted for his precious life. Thank God, he is alive today!

It is difficult to convey all the pain that we experience in these difficult days, and especially the parents who both are orphans... Elijah has been found the brain cyst(not confirmed today), and then Rasmussen's encephalitis. Inflammation of the cerebral cortex.

                                 

The doctor gives a disappointing prognosis and says that everything is very bad ... 😢 And he told the mother to prepare for the worst ... The condition of Elijah deteriorates VERY quickly...😓 Day by day.. The situation is VERY critical. The little boy slowly goes away...We know this baby from the first months of his life. And it is scary to think he may will go away today or tomorrow...😭 Elijah is slowly dying...


The doctor says that Elijah is the first patient in his practice, which makes it difficult to treat the boy. Doctors fought for his precious life and did everything they could ...

Later little Elijah was sent to Kiev for a medical examination,  further and better treatment... He became worse... Besides all the terrible symptoms, the little boy has a pneumonia...😥

 For today, no medications help him. The neurosurgeon doctor says that sweet boy needs to do the surgery, delete half of the brain because the medications are powerless... He says if the surgery is not done then the other part of the brain will stop functioning as well... 😰😭

We need to raise $4000 US for a med.tests, a surgery, on medicines, diapers, food, transportation, consultation with specialists and various expenses. His mother is scared of the surgery very much. No doubt it would be scary for any person...

The neurosurgeon in Kyiv said that he had already operated on several children with encephalitis and the surgeries were successful. Children live a full life. His first surgery he did with a specialist neurosurgeon from New York. They are ready to operate Elijah in November.

He also said that the boy can be sent to Germany for treatment and they give direction. Next week we meet with specialists in neurosurgery from Israel. Please, pray that God will give wisdom and the right decision.

This week, little boy is being prescribed to go home to treat pneumonia at home(he can`t be in touch with kids and there are no place at hospital) and get ready for surgery so that he is healthy and ready for it. If he is sick with any infectious disease the surgery will not take place.

 

We do not know what the Lord prepared for this sweet family. They are going through a VERY difficult time now. 💔The Lord knows all the experiences and HUGE troubles... We pray that God will arrange everything and send Elijah where he needs to be.

Many of you love this precious angel what is a great encouragement for his parents. ♥♥♥ Please, keep praying for the healing of the poor boy. That God strengthened the faith of parents, give perfect peace in hearts and gave them the strength to go through everything. His mom Stella feels exhausted from sleepless nights. Also, that the Lord will open His will in the treatment of the baby, for wisdom and right decision of doctors, and for the needed funds. PLEASE, pray for a miracle, God`s mercy to the precious boy and his family. Pray for God’s glory to shine upon Elijah that God will be glorified through this situation. His precious life is valuable and in God's mighty hands...
Your prayers mean VERY MUCH for this sweet little boy and his family!

The bittersweet project

 These beautiful children with childhood traumas, some had to sleep on the streets in the bushes, under the bridge or where they had to... Some escaped from the orphanage in cold and frosty winter days, without clothes due to humiliation and violence in the orphanage...


These sweet kids live in terrible poverty and are forced to earn a penny to support their families. Sometimes parents have many children in family and are not able to provide food and forced to send the children to the orphanages. Parents of some of the kids spent their childhood in the same orphanage. :( Sometimes the parents are very ill and unable to give the most necessary to their children. But most parents drink alcohol and they do not care where are their kiddos and what will happen to them tomorrow... Sometimes girls hate men because their fathers drink alcohol. Can you imagine what feel a girl, when her godmother sold her to a guy for 2 bottles of vodka ?... That`s terrible!!!


Graduates were afraid to leave the orphanage... Every day they face fear what there will be tomorrow, uncertainty, loneliness. They are looking for a comfort drinking alcohol or sniffing glue. Some were dying many times due to intoxication of the body... Recently, a 20-year-old girl from the same orphanage committed suicide leaving her small baby...😢We do not know the details. But this is awful news since we knew this girl... :((( Each story of child is heartbreaking...


Therefore, we decided to make a small camp for these precious souls, in the hope of helping them in emotional healing and surrounded with the love of Christ.

                                                                            ***
When we started our travel, the big sum of money was not enough. But with all our hearts we believed that the Lord would send the necessary funds! The Lord gave peace and calm in the heart. We did not even care about this, because we worried about the children more. :)
The Lord knew that this would be enough! In many places we were given a huge discount or it was free of charge, when they found out that the children from the orphanage! We praised our Heavenly Father for such great blessings!How awesome!!!

At the first our day we stopped for a small picnic to eat on the way to... We spent only half of the day and children said that they got to Paradise!!!  What?!! We did nothing yet! 

My heart thrilled and was filled with such incredible joy and happiness! Honestly, I thought that I would die from happiness to see them so delighted!!! ♥♥♥ :))) I only imagine what an amazing next few days will be, I thought for a moment...

We arrived late at night when it was dark, so no one could see the mountains. But many woke up at 5.00 AM to see this beauty! Probably, they did not even close their eyes in anticipation of the sunrise. Ha ha!


Every morning before eating, we devote time to reading the Word of God and praying.

Also we had a Bible time every day, where we discussed different topics and talked about salvation. Everyone listened with great pleasure and interest!For the first time in the life these sweet kids saw waterfalls, fed animals, went to the mountains, climbed the highest mountain in Ukraine, Hoverla, saw the castle, went for a drive in zipline, played games, had fellowship and many more. What an awesome and incredible time! All the kids thrilled, delighted and said that they had the best days of their life!!! They had a blast! ♥♥♥ They are such sweet souls...

We thank God for the safe road, for the wonderful weather, even we had to survive the downpour. Little experience :) But most of all, our hearts are filled with gratitude for the wonderful time with these beautiful souls! We lived together as one big lovely family and it was amazing time!

It was a bittersweet project... A lot of heartbreaking situations. So many wounded and broken precious hearts... Many souls needs spiritual and emotional healing. :( 
But it was the BEST project we had!!! :) God is doing amazing things!!!

 Their hearts began to open for the Gospel. During the year when we came to the meeting of the graduates, they did not express much desire to sing, many felt shy. But these days, we could not stop them! They wanted and asked to sing again and again!!!
 We became better and good friends. And we keep fellowship daily :) Those who were afraid began to show courage, those who were silent became more talkative.Those who did not laugh began to laugh with all their heart. The children began to open their precious hearts telling about their lives, share their feelings and experiences. The graduates never went far and one of the girls started panicking... You know what? She began to show courage in many things!The teacher was very surprised and said, "I do not recognize them and can not believe my eyes! What's going on? For the first time in 9 years of work, I see them new!"  The love heals wounds! :) 

One of the girls said how good that I fell ill with pneumonia 9 years ago because of this I did not go to school. And I went to school for the coming year and got into this class. Just think, I had to graduate last year! After all, if I was not sick with pneumonia, I would never have got into this place in my life...

We are so grateful to all who took part in this awesome project!!! You are AMAZING!!! THANK YOU soooo very much to everyone, who made this possible and brought so much joy, delight and helped in emotional healing!!! Thank you very much for prayers! And thank you for giving opportunity to show the love of Christ to these precious souls. ♥♥♥

It was a little experience in holding the camp for orphans and it was a success! We plan to hold the same camp for graduates next year, God`s will but longer. ;)

Please, watch the video to see more pictures of God's beauty and mostly beauty in precious hearts! These kids are amazing and they took special place in our hearts ♥

Marshmallow and Kite!

What an amazing day we had with the youth on Monday! We learned it had to be holiday. So, why not to do a little picnic?

We learned how to toasted marshmallow! Yay! We made s'mores with crackers and chocolate.
For all, toasted marshmallow was for the first time! Except me. :) Some of my dear friends in America have taught me how to do this. I was glad to share my little experience!

Everyone was delighted and said, "Wow! We could see it only in the movies! It's so cool!" :)

 Also we learned to launch a kite!And this was also the first time for everyone! It was so funny and great! So many emotions and laughter!!! 

Children and even their parents were delighted and super excited!!!😍 Edik shouted at the top of voice, "Mama, look, I'm launching a kite myself! " His joy was not the end!Olga was so proud of him :)


Everyone was like in the Heaven! 😇We all had a very fun and amazing day relaxing and enjoying each other!!! 

Praise God for the amazing day, beautiful weather and wonderful fellowship with each other!!!

The Last Bell

Yesterday was a Last Bell in the orphanages. This means that the children went home to relatives or summer camps. It was painful to watch graduates... because they are still children... Where will they go? What awaits them? Where will they be in a few years?.. That`s sad and our hearts are broken for them...
And at the same time it was joyful. We again had the opportunity to see each other and show that they are not alone. Give one more hug and to show and tell that they are loved by God, their Heavenly Father.


Brother Misha had the opportunity to say a valedictory speech.Many tears were shed...

We came not only to say goodbye to graduates but also brought small wonderful gifts.

We collected all the photos of their childhood and made photo albums. Children were delighted!!!

Look, how small I was! This was often heard. :) It was so great to see their joy and delight! ♥

Sounds the last bell for graduates ...


This year we managed to attend the ceremony of the Last Bell in two orphanages. Because they were at different times.That was great!

These little ones were so cute! ♥

One more valedictory speech of bro.Misha in other orphanage

I think that picture is a small gift but dear to the heart. :)



It was so sweet to see the joy of the children ♥♥♥


We hope that these pictures will remind them of the wonderful moments in their life and will remain in their precious hearts forever.


Even, if the children are on summer vacation, our ministry does not stop. There is a lot of work and many other orphanages, where many precious souls are waiting for us :)
