Our dream can come true some day

This blog post is post of great prayer request and faith.This post about worries and troubles.But most important, this post of thinking, many prayers, dreams, joy, peace, seeking of God`s will and much more.I would like to tell you something great and I would love to open my heart before you, beloved our friends.

 I never will forget this awful night. Here I couldn't tell anything to you precisely, as I only received shocking call and it was necessary to go urgently there, on a scene. I could only ask you strongly to pray. It is so wonderful to know and see, how many wonderful brothers and sisters in Jesus Christ prayed for our family.

When we arrived on the scene, I cried, heart was squeezed, I could hardly believe my own eyes, there was a shock and horror, I begged the Lord to stop it... I could not believe that the house burns. I cried and prayed... I couldn't understand why these awful things occur in our family. About 3 months to this awful case, our father died. It was huge shock as he died for few days, doctors fought for his life, but couldn't make it. It was awfully sick and is heartbreaking. I couldn't believe that father died in the face of and instantaneous.I still  often cry, I miss him...Sadly.., we didn't live with him together as one family..,in one home... but I and my sister Oksana, we love him with all our hearts. The single consolation and a joy from the Lord, that he is now with the Lord in Heaven, is consoled and doesn't know grief and diseases and stays with Jesus forever.I wait a day when we will meet him in Heaven again.
 Honestly, I even didn't think that feelings returned again. I write and tears are in eyes, the lump stay in throat.

At that time, when the house of mother burned down, I couldn't understand why the Lord allowed it.I understood that for any purpose... but it was so heavy to understand all this. But for what?The house isn't subject to restoration and to live there not possibly. Residuals of the house suit to demolish it only...

But as Bible says:"And we know that all things work together for good to them that love God, to them who are the called according to his purpose."(Romans 8:28)KJV

Yes! It`s the TRUTH!!! "all things work together for good"! This verse helped me to endure many difficulties in my life. When it was heavy for me, I always returned and said to myself, you shall trust the Lord, all things work together for good, the Lord owes to make something wonderful. And it helped! The Lord made so MANY great and surprising miracles in my life!!!I`m in awe!Our Lord Jesus is SO good and so AWESOME!!!


The house burned down, but near the house there is a part of the land.Do you know that our mother gives this land to us?! It means that we can do there what we want. It means that we can build there the house for street children, for those who has no place to live after an orphanage graduation. It means that our dream can come true a some day! Wow!!!

Yes, this our desire and our burden. We prayed for it many years and decided to forget about it and even crossed out on our blog. Our desire was to create a home to save souls of these teenagers from awful life after the orphanage graduation. That to save them from this, from this and from much more. It seemed unrealizable dream. Honestly, I even stopped praying about it... Until the Lord didn't suppose to me on heart to give this property to Him. This part of the land already belongs to Him. In my heart and a special prayer before Him, I gave to the Lord Jesus, that God realized and created there what He wants what is in His plans and the purposes. I am so glad and excited! Yes, it seems crazy idea without having enough support even for orphanages. Yes, it seems impossible for us, but not for the Lord. Our God is rich and strong, all-powerful and good! We don't know how many will pass months and years while it becomes reality, but we trust.I believe with ALL my heart, excited and have peace in heart!

Yes, it`s huge work, a huge paper work, huge finances, many worries and headaches.But we are excited!It`s little by little, little by little, with God`s help, we would do it.We can build the house there for 10-15 or even 20 children!It would awesome blessing to give roof for those who do not have.It would be such great blessing to give a loving home, protection and care, who are needy.

I will tell to you my small secret. When I became a Christian, for years later I always dreamed and wanted, that on this ground that to make for the Lord. :) At that time I thought, it could be the Christian camp or something another. I didn't know, what exactly, I only had desire. But couldn't make it because it didn't belong to me. Now, it is already real, we know what we want, we have an image and we could make it with the God's help.
But I can't precisely tell, that it is wanted by the Lord. In total that I have and I know. The Lord speaks in His Word Bible, cares of orphans and to provide them a house or roof, wherever possible. I have huge desire to create this house. I don't know when and how it will be, but I have the perfect peace and calm, concerning this question. And I have vision, joy and excited.We see that God shows in our ministry that we should do something for these children, as they often need a help. Please pray together with us, that the Lord opened and showed, whether it is exact in His will. We need to know precisely His will. Because His will is good, acceptable and perfect.

 After orphanage graduation I had many problems besides that I often was undernourished and had no necessary clothes. Thanks to Church and Christians, I rose on feet. Friends, I don`t know, where I would be today and how  lived, if Christians didn't help me with my needs. I`m sure, my life, would be simply a nightmare. I often think about it. And I thank God for those people who helped me in due time. Now this is my desire and BOM dream to help those teenagers who get to similar situations after the orphanage graduation.
We ask you to pray because it`s very big project and it`s a lot of responsibility and we need your help in many prayers.Will you pray with us?

But there is one nuance and trouble we have now.The matter is that our mom lived in the house on two owners. During a fire not only our house suffered, but also partially a part of the house of neighbors.Now neighbors submitted on court to select  the land of mother and to compensate their loss, despite that mother isn't guilty, there was an accident.Guilty of mom is unproven and her fault there absolutely aren't present.

Several months ago, after fire I very much was afraid of it and begged the Lord, that He wouldn't allow, that saved us and there was no court. Everything seemed normally and everything calmed down. But several weeks ago we learned about that, that on July 2 there will be a court. It is so funny to see, how heart and thoughts of the person changes. Before I was afraid, cried, begged God to protect our family from the evil.I begged the Lord that He didn't allow court. I told, the Lord it is not for me, I am not so strong to go through it, I am afraid, I don't know what to do, how to be etc.
Today, I probably even would like that this court would take place and that the Lord put an end to it to everything. Today I am not afraid, I have the perfect peace in heart and even joy. Yes, it not pleasant process etc. But the Lord gives me a peace in heart that helps to suffer and not to think everything of it often. I don't know than it will end and what decision will carry out court. But I already thank the Lord for the peace in heart and I trust that all from the Lord.What decision the court wouldn't carry out , I will accept everything as from the Lord.
We ask you our dear friends, to pray for this court that shall be on July 2 (in two days). That this court was honest and fair on the relation of our family and neighbors.Please, we ask you to support us in many prayers that the Lord would protect us and helped us with the solution of this question. That the Lord would grant to wisdom and blessed process of court. Also that the name of Lord Jesus was glorified through this situation. We pray for salvation of souls of these neighbors that the Lord would help us to show His love and compassion, as though it was not heavy to us. We ask you to pray that the Lord would be there.Please, will you pray with us???We need many prayers now.Thanks!

As we couldn't find a bigger van, that for once to collect all mattresses and pillows,  2 days in a row were necessary to us to go to other city to take away and bring to the orphanage. We left early in the morning and came back late at nights tired and exhausted, BUT happy and pleased. :)

Here are pictures and video for the first day of our trip.

The luggage carrier of van was full.

Girls were so glad to our arrival again! Each of them wanted and hurried to help to unload the van.There was so much joy and delight!Wow!

Blankets to girls

I`m so happy to tell you that our beloved girls received a new, warm and so beautiful blankets!We are so excited!
When we only arrived, girls, having seen us started to run towards to us, to kiss and hug. It was so joyful to see them again!And it was such sweet meeting!

Here is a wonderful blessing we could to bring to them at this time.It was such a joyful and excited to see the full baggage of our van.It`s such great blessing from the Lord!

Girls were very glad to help

After that we could communicate with girls a little.We had such heartwarming fellowship.There were such many laughter, smiles, hugs, joy, fun and sweet moments. It`s such a blessing to meet and see whom you love and who is dear to your heart.

I love these sweeties.Aren`t they lovely? :)

Well.The half of the project we already done.Tomorrow we are going to get mattresses and pillows and deliver to these girls again.We are so thrilled!Please, pray for our safety travels.It will take us 11-12 hours.
The greatest is heavier that now in Ukraine is very hot weather, +30-35`C(86-95 F), air is wet and to breathe very heavy. In our van there is no airconditioner and it troubles our trips when the van heats up and becomes overheated, feel as on a frying pan and are tired very quickly. We pray diligent that the Lord bless us and sent enough to set the air conditioner in van that much more will facilitate our trips and won't influence our health.

Workers of the orphanage were very grateful and admire! They warmly thanked and are glad that for one more need it is less at orphans now. There are a lot of needs...Praise God He cares of orphans so greatly!God is so good and awesome!!!

The five loaves and the two fishes

Do you believe in miracles? I do! I do believe that Jesus does miracles as thousands and  thousands years ago. Because "Jesus Christ the same yesterday, and to day, and for ever." (Hebrews13:8)KJV People change, friends, job, time, circumstances, life, location, home, everything changes. But Jesus NEVER changes!!!He is faithful! He is Wonderful, Counsellor, The mighty God, The everlasting Father, The Prince of Peace!

Many of you is known history about the five loaves and the two fishes. (Mark6:34-44)How Jesus multiplied it, made a great miracle, having fed five thousand people. There was only five loaves and the two small fishes! How it is possible to feed such great number of people, having only such smallness? I don't know how it is possibly. But I do believe. I simply believe, what tells the God's Word. It was simply a miracle! If we could understand by our mind, it any more wouldn't be a miracle. ;)

I like it:"And they did all eat, and were filled.And they took up twelve baskets full of the fragments, and of the fishes." (Mark 6:42-43)

Well. I have to tell you something.Something great and amazing!
God "multiplied" our means and we can help much MORE to orphaned girls, not only by mattresses and pillows! Throughout the long time we looked for mattresses at the acceptable price and that suited to beds of girls. Their beds still an old sample, from period of Soviet Union. We looked for so, that wasn't expensive and it could serve long. We found for 125 hryvnias($15.6) a piece. We were glad! As mattresses of the first-rate quality it is very expensive and they don't suit to beds of girls.

 Having raised funds, we needed to organize everything that to acquire and provide these wonderful blessings that our dear children could have sweet dreams. But HOW we are happy and also delighted! How God miraculously suits everything and makes! God took us to the right people and a place, where we can acquire mattresses for 75 hryvnias($9.37)! Wow! We are so glad! We ordered, as this is large number. Here it is necessary to order everything, differently you won't find. And now mattresses sew at a factory, for our lovely girls. It means that we can buy now not only 90 mattresses, 90 pillows, but 84 blankets for the same girls! Oh, my!!!!!It`s awesome blessing! Isn`t it?
 Interestingly and funny that we just were going to begin our following project in some weeks that to bless these orphans with soft and warm blankets. As their blankets are in an awful status too.But God ALREADY blessed and sent to buy enough blankets!Great!

I can't believe that we can already buy such large quantity of blankets!!! And we don't need to begin this project already. It is already in operation. Lord Jesus so miraculously suited everything and increased, caring of orphans. This is miracle! So, for $2.206 we can buy 90 new mattresses, 90 new pillows and 84 blankets!(For other $60 we are going to buy mattresses covers, as we have little more). Do you believe it?! This simply is HUGE blessing! In some days we are going to get and provide blankets to girls while mattresses and pillows are sewed at factory. We are so excited!We are sure that the director and administration of an orphanage will be shocked. ;) What  awesome God we serve!!!

$0.5 a day to support a mental institution

Honestly, I at all don't know from what to begin... My heart is broken and overwhelmed. I feel bitterness and pain... The lump is in a throat and tears are in eyes, I have not words... Friends, I simply have no words. I write and I delete. Then I type again. I can not find the correct words... Forgive, please... Loading this video and  pictures, caused those feelings that I had when for the first time arrived to this mental institution. I had big shock, pain and heartache.Throughout the long time, months I couldn't come to the senses. It is awfully heart-breaking. Having visited this mental institution, you never will remain same person. Your heart changed forever... You will feel pain, tears, shock, broken heart, disappointment, a regret, helplessness and it is a lot of  and a lot of another.

Our ministry consists in bringing the God's Word to orphans and cares of their emotional, physical, and spiritual needs, on how many it is possible, on how many the Lord allows.

Below, there are pictures and videos of the abandoned children, orphans with different special needs. It is not a secret that every year many children in these institutions die... Many of children that we saw, for a long time aren't present in the live. These children are left by the parents, some of them even never saw them and the word "mommy" or the "daddy" isn't familiar to them. They are lonely, helpless and defenseless...
Our help is necessary to them, Friends. Our protection, care and love is necessary to these poor souls.
 These, God's precious creatures need the great help and tender care. Who will be cares as not we, children of God? Who will show them Christ love as not God's army, Christians?..

Sweet words and gentle hugs are necessary to them.
Touchings need to them, they are deprived of it...
video


The hope is necessary to these sweet boys

video

They feel lonely and neglected

 I just wonder... will be their eyes sometime to shine with joy and happiness?

I love very much this verses:"Open thy mouth for the dumb in the cause of all such as are appointed to destruction. Open thy mouth, judge righteously, and plead the cause of the poor and needy."(Proverbs 31:8-9)KJV


So, we PLEAD you to help these needing orphans... Many of them can't be adopted unfortunately and will stay here for many years... We can not help with all needs, but something to do we are capable, only with God's help. We beg the Lord to help these poor and the abandoned children.We plead the Lord to make a difference in lives of these darling boys.
The director of this mental institution does everything what in his forces. But it is very frequent means simply insufficiently. Nannies work heavy to feed, clean, wash and look after these children. Often are only 2 nanny for 20 children.It is very hard physical work.
Do you know that about 5 hryvnias a day go on feed of an orphan in Ukraine?It`s $0.62 a day!Oh, it`s terrible!Often orphans simply survive...Here (unfortunately in Russian) one of directors of a small orphanage for 30 children, shares that the government gives 0.59 hryvnia a day ($0.07) for treatment of an orphan and 890 hryvnias ($111.25) a year, for clothes and footwear. :(

In this mental institution are 90 boys with different special needs, such as Down syndrome, autism, cerebral palsy, Apert syndrome, blind, mental delay  and others.If God gives you a wish, you can support the mental institution $0.5 a day.It`s $15 a month.Your finances will be directed to needs of this mental institution. Children will have necessary clothes, footwear, the clean bed, necessary food, diapers, means of cleaning.
 We undertake to send a pictures when necessary things will be provided to these children or even a bill if necessary.
Our greatest desire the Lord send monthly sponsors to help with needs to these orphans. Please, prayerfully consider this question. If you unable to help. Please pray.Pray God will help and care of these needy boys.Please, share about this need.We will be VERY grateful for any, little bit help.Because the need is really big.Thank you so much, sweet Friends with all our hearts!!!
 God bless you!
