Here I would like to tell you about another wonderful gifts we have from above. :)
All day long we traveled and visited teenagers.This day was longest and full of blessings.
The first.These 2 beautiful young ladies have 2 wonderful sponsors from Canada.Amazing!Somewhere, here on the blog I shared about them a little. So, they have "stolen hearts" of 2 lover of Jesus Christians, who would like to show love of Christ to these orphaned teens and take care of their needs.We are so happy for girls!
On the picture, sweet girls are with their Birthday gifts.They were overjoyed and so thrilled! :)
Then we went to the orphanage, where over 45 orphaned teenagers waited for us.We had a great time!The topic of our meeting was the Choice.They have to make a choice in their lives between God and Devil, for whom to follow.
Here we played game with the real and not the real candies. It was same as at this wonderful meeting. There were a lot of laugh!Precious children.
I liked that they diligently looked for verses in the Bible and weren't ashamed to read aloud, even if they badly read in their 15-16 years old.
We divided Bible verses into two columns. On the one hand that that is temporary for a flesh. On the other hand that that is eternal, for a soul.
Also we mentioned and spoke about harm of alcohol, cigarettes, drugs, etc.
We sang, communicated and there was fine time. At the end of meeting Vova, (supported by BOM) told the short testimony. He still study and is very embarrassing guy. He worried very much. But he could tell the most important what waits for children after the graduation of orphanage, how it is not easy and Who can help them.Good job, Vova!
After that we went to visit our friends in trade school.
Well.We thought to visit only 4 of our boys, whom we visited recently.But again more and more teenagers came to have fellowship.They looked as lost sheep without shepherd.They just wander hungry, with empty eyes and without sense of life...It was clearly visible they need someone, who would direct and lead them. We did not have Bible study yet as we are going to have in some future, if the Lord will allow.But we had wonderful fellowship with boys and girls.
We could see old our friends. And became friends to new children. :)
At the end we gave food to our precious boys.Of course, they were so happy, because they absolutely did not have food!Can you imagine it? Being a poor student and hungry? So and so sad... :(
But our hearts were absolutely broken even more at this day.We understood, we have to help and bring food to more teens there.Trust me.In this poor and dark dormitory, not having enough money for food, clothes and necessary items, lost, with emptiness in hearts, without hope, sad eyes, hungry, they remind me lost sheep.
For I was an hungred, and ye gave me meat: I was thirsty, and ye gave me drink: I was a stranger, and ye took me in:
Naked, and ye clothed me: I was sick, and ye visited me: I was in prison, and ye came unto me...
And the King shall answer and say unto them, Verily I say unto you, Inasmuch as ye have done [it] unto one of the least of these my brethren, ye have done [it] unto me.
