Meeting with teens

Last week the Lord gave the chance to us to hold a meeting with teenagers.We had great time!It`s the orphanage where typical children.We had a lot of cheerful time and the serious moments throughout the meeting.We sang together with children a lot, played and listened to the God's Word.One song they so loved that they asked to sing many times!That was wonderful time!
As we were going to have a meeting only with teenagers, we assumed that there will be about 30-40 children. But the Lord had other plan. Other children that younger age asked very much to be present at the meeting. We had no enough candies as we expected certain number of children.Our hearts was torn asunder, what to do? how to be? Later we solved this question. Thus we had exactly 90 children!Wow!What a blessing!
The Lord wanted that bigger number of orphans could hear the God's word and be consoled.We had such blessed time!!!
The hall was almost complete people. Blessing for us was to see many tеachers and workers of orphanage that could hear the Gospel.The God's plan ALWAYS is the best!!!We all were excited by our spent time so much!

Here is video one of our game.Children bound a balloon to the right foot. Then they divided on pairs. They shall burst a balloon of the companion and during the same time to save their. It was very funny to watch! They very much liked this game and were excited to play!It was so funny time!

We played one more game. Where blindfold children shall feed their friends who also was blindfold.
 This game was even more amusing. Was very funny to look, when they got to the wrong direction or instead of mouth got a cake to a forehead or an eye of the friend. All hall laughed loudly!It was soooooo funny! :)))

Except fun time, we had time when all presented in hall, could hear the Gospel. As we had a subject about friendship.What the Bible speaks about friendship, which we should be friends, whether we are good friends in relation to our friends etc. We told them great story of friendship about Jonathan and David. (1 Samuel 18-20)
When we arrived to the orphanage and prepared for the program, children asked: "Will we see a theatrical?" 
They told to us Bible stories about 3 young men in the furnace and about Jonah when we told and showed.We were impressed that all of them still remember these stories!That is great!!! Isn`t sweet?I LOVE when kids remember stories!

In the history of friendship about Jonathan and David we read. "Then Jonathan and David made a covenant, because he loved him as his own soul.And Jonathan stripped himself of the robe that was upon him, and gave it to David, and his garments, even to his sword, and to his bow, and to his girdle." (1Sameul 18:3-4)

We try to do the utmost that children not only would remember stories but that they would be impressed. Unfortunately we had no enough time to prepare this program as lately we are super busy. It was necessary to invent something quickly and being remembered. Therefore we found everything that Jonathan presented to David. When children dressed to play a role of actors in the history, they very much rejoiced. Especially our Jonathan when he had so many things. But what was his surprise that he should give everything to the friend David!He said:" That is a lot!" It was good experiense for him to be friendly. :)

"And it came to pass in the morning, that Jonathan went out into the field at the time appointed with David, and a little lad with him. And he said unto his lad, Run, find out now the arrows which I shoot. And as the lad ran, he shot an arrow beyond him. And when the lad was come to the place of the arrow which Jonathan had shot, Jonathan cried after the lad, and said, Is not the arrow beyond thee? And Jonathan cried after the lad, Make speed, haste, stay not. And Jonathan's lad gathered up the arrows, and came to his master. But the lad knew not any thing: only Jonathan and David knew the matter." (1Samuel 20:35-39)
It was such honor for our Jonathan to shoot the arrows! :) He was excited very much!

But not only our Jonathan shoot arrows. There was a possibility to teach and many other children how to start up arrows. They learned to shoot at the target that we drew.Wow!It was such exciting moment! All kids wanted to shoot arrows!
When children just to saw bow with arrows, they were AMAZED!"WOW!Look at this!May I shoot?" They loved it sooooooooo much!It was such perfect possibility to learn kids how to use the bow and arrows.We love it! We were excited and thrilled how they were happy by using the bow and arrows!That is not surprise.Where kids could to use it and learn???

Who got the closer to center of target, won a prize more expensively.Boys LOVED this game! :)

 But on it our meeting didn't end. The our Heavenly Father is good to us, He blessed and we could distribute to kids New Testaments and Bibles.
 Isn`t blessing that orphans could receive the God's Word?Now they can read and learn about God`s love, about His comforting, how to live Christian life and much and much more.
 We had such great and blessed time with teens!!!We hope, if God will allow, to visit them soon. We praise our wonderful and so good Saviour!

Do you see this picture?No, it`s not fire. :)
When we came back home, all road was laid a smoke-screen. Snow at last completely melted. All prepare for summer, everything remove and clean after last year. Therefore fields prepare for sowing also. In the woods and on fields burn out an old last year's grass that the young grass could grow and was juicy.Just wonder, whether burn out also old grass every year in the Spring in other countries? It would be interesting to hear it in your comments :))) Blessings!
