A day with special boys

What a blessed day we had today!Our Lord Jesus is so good and wonderful! We were able to visit today mental institution for boys with special needs.We had gorgeous day!

In the beginning of our trip we had a little adventure.On the way to mental institution we jumped into the hole on the road and in few minutes we had lost a circular plate for van. :)
We had stoped and looked for it.Praise the Lord we have found it in few minutes!
                              We could to continue our journey. 

When we came to mental institution, we divided all boys to two groups.First we had meeting with older boys and after that we had time with smaller.
Oh my goodness how they all were happy!The smaller kids could not wait to come into the class and to be with us until we had finish with older!

Today we have spoken about resurrection of Jesus Christ.
In the beginning of our meeting we sang several songs using guitar.Oh, how boys love it!
After we sang a song with movements about resurrection of Jesus Christ.They did very well!
 We told to them very simple and short a Bible story using flannelgraph.
Also we colored pictures.They really enjoyed that!

But one boy was not interesting do something.He has broken the new colored pencils and crumpled a metal box for pencils!Ah! we just bought them!Well.It is our mistake. He does not understand what he is doing...We needed took to this orphanage our old colored pencils which we have a little bit.Here children break and tear everything.We were so exciting our trip that we forgot and did not think about it.Usually we are ready for everything they can do.But this time we missed it.Next time we will be more careful.
In the end we gave bananas to boys.Oh, how they were glad!They ate it just in moment, very fast!

We could not give to boys a whole banana.It would be expensive for us.You will ask how much it cost? We paid for 45 bananas about $19. We have to save  finances as much as we can.Also we paid $20 for petrol to visit kids.
We divided the whole banana to two pieces and gave to children. And they enjoyed it!They really were soooo happy!We are glad to see their happy eyes and smiles on their faces.

We would love to give to them all kinds of fruits each time when we come to them!

                           We had little more time and we played a game.
                          They enjoyed to throw a ball to the bucket.Boys did it really good!

                                                            Just happy! :)

We have done all same with next group of smaller boys.

                                                              Coloring pictures
Game and etc...
Did they were happy?Oh, yes! Are we happy!Of, course!Why? Because we could to visit abandoned and forgotten by people these poor kids and bring to them if only little gladness.It brings to us a lot of pleasure if only a little bit to bring to them a little light in their dark life...

Each time when you see these kids you can not be unconcerned.Many things what you see crush your heart.It make you afflicted when you see these rooms where they spend all day long sitting on wooden benches or on these beds.No hope, no future, nothing...
This boy is all time chewing something his mouth.Everything that can chew his teeth.This time he was chewing a some dirty toy.Probably he is hungry often?..
In dining room we helped a little bit to feed children.Really it very heavy to watch how they eat...Some of kids  eat a meal by their hands.We explained and showed to them they have to eat by spoon not by their hands! But it was enough only for a moment...Need show and train many times...
It is heavy to look as they with greed push food in their mouth and swallow without chewing.How they eat big piece of food and everything is leaking on their clothes...
It is not because caretaker is not good or she does not do well her work.It is because she is alone but children are many.She can not do alone all her work.It is really hard work!

Really we tired much today! We lost all our physical power and strength.But we glad we could to see them today and it was blessed day!

As Bible says:"Even the youths shall faint and be weary, and the young men shall utterly fall:But they that wait upon the LORD shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings as eagles; they shall run, and not be weary; and they shall walk, and not faint." 
Isaiah 40:30

We need wisdom and new strength...Thank you!
