Caretakers for boys -- continue the project

A few weeks will be a year as with your help we raised the necessary sum and hired two caretakers to mental institution. Time flies awfully fast! Even can not believe that a year has passed ... Thanks to the many wonderful people, generous donors in small and huge donations and even anonymous donors ... The boys were able to receive the necessary care and attention. 

Looking through the list of donors, tears flow with joy, happiness and humble heart ... How many people opened their generous hearts to these lonely and abandoned boys. How many gave gifts of love, wanting to change the lives of disadvantaged children. How many prayed, sent emails, shared on social networks spreading the word.... Tears of joy flow from thinking how great and amazing our Lord Jesus Christ. How He wonderfully blessed and poured out His astonish love to these precious souls, showing His care for them. Those, whom the world considers unworthy...

Only for several weeks we were able to raise  more then $6000! Wow! It was a AMAZING miracle!

These wonderful caretakers faithfully performed their job and did everything, what they were told to do.

They dressed boys and got out outdoors

Changed clothes, when it was necessary

Сhanged diapers

Fed those, who cannot eat by themselves.

Washed the children, watch order and cleanliness in the rooms. Washed and mopped the floors and much more.
But the most. They replaced mothers to these treasures, hugging, comforting and wiping away tears. Children are very used to them already.
The administration of this institution are very happy and every time as our arrival, always  thank for the great rendered help with "extra hands". But we know that this would not have happened without your participation. :)

A HUGE need and desire of administration and ours certainly, again hire these same caretakers signed a contract for a year. They are perfectly cope with their work providing care and attention to these tiny kids. Especially that it is vitally important, Friends. So our desire is that to continue this vital project, what we started a year ago. Their presence in the institution and the attention that they give the sweet boys is LIFE CHANGING for the children that they work with.
But we can not hire them until would not be gathered all the necessary amount. We have very short time to raise $6000!

Will you help, please? Would you please consider an act of love on behalf of these precious souls?Every seed sown with love is a VERY great help and blessing. Each sent lovely gift, big or small, is greatly appreciated.

We kindly ask you with humble hearts...PLEASE.  Could you, please, find a minute to share about this great need wherever you are able, on social networks, blogs, emails... 

If the Lord Jesus has stirred up your heart and gives you the desire to participate in the life of these sweet boys. Your gift of love you can send via Paypal BOM Select option "I'm sending money to family or friends" and leave a note that this gift is to hire caretakers for boys.Thank you!
Thermometer on the right side of the blog, will show how much has been raised. Thank you very much to find a time and share this blog post. Thanks a lot for your involvement. We really appreciate it!!!

We pray for a miracle and mercy of our Heavenly Father to these poor and abandoned boys.Would you pray with us, please?THANK YOU!!!

"Mama I`m gonna kill you"

People often ask. How children live in orphanages? What they do there? What do they feel? What do they dream of? Why children run away from orphanages? Why such a horrible statistic is that 10% of children commit suicide after leaving orphanages? and many others.

This is not a Christian but a documentary film "Mama I`m gonna kill you", made in one of the orphanages Russia, shows very well the lives of children in the orphanage, their dreams and feelings...

Terrible! But it is heartbreaking truth is what we are seeing in orphanages...
Maybe this film will help you understand, WHY your support is SO important to us, especially prayers. And we apreciate it VERY much.Why BOM team , brings Good News to the poor orphans. Since only Jesus Christ can heal these broken and wounded hearts. As God healed hearts of BOM team, who were former orphans. 
Maybe this film will help you to understand the lives of children in orphanages, their feelings and WHY their hearts are often bitter. Why, need YEARS to heal their children's hearts and distressed precious souls.

(Psalm 27:10) KJV "When my father and my mother forsake me, then the LORD will take me up". 

Some moments reminded me of a past life in orphanages, where I spent many years... This movie is impossible to watch without tears...

Our thoughts can become reality :)

Did you ever have it? When you think about something, and after a while, it became a reality? Just think and reflect on something ... And your thoughts become reality. I believe that you had. :)  Born again Christians, who find a daily solace in their Savior, who is trying to walk the narrow way and do His will. Experiencing the feeling and excitement, when the Lord makes our thoughts a reality. Because the Bible says:
(Psalm 37:4) "Delight thyself also in the LORD; and he shall give thee the desires of thine heart". 

How awesome is it! God left us a promise, if we admire, delight and find joy in Him. He will fulfill the desires of our heart.Is not amazing blessing?

This is one of my beloved Bible verses. Lord fulfilled a lot of my heart desires, which I could only dream of. About what, I'm only just thought and.... never could think that this can become a reality. ;)

I am very happy to share with you a blessing, what blew my mind!Where God has shown that nothing is impossible for Him! (Jeremiah 32:27) "Behold, I [am] the LORD, the God of all flesh: is there any thing too hard for me?" 

About 2 weeks ago we went to one trade school because we had to solve some things. When we were about to leave, in the other side of the room, the girl was standing at the door and waved her hand. Next to her was another girl. The teacher made ​​a joke and said: "Oh, the girls must came to the boys and waving to them". There, in the class room were several boys. And we smiled headed to the exit, to the door.

When we approached closer to the girls. One of them said hello, smiling sweetly.
After a moment, I saw a familiar sweet face. I'm a little confused, wondering where I could see her... She began to show us a photo, where was of her class and team BOM together. Joyfully exclaiming: "I remember, I remember you!" pointing to a picture of who is who. We realized that she was waving to us.
Sometimes it's hard to remember the names of thousands of children. But God knows. :) I was stunned remembering the girl! It was such a joy that Nastya kept it and took a photo with her at this trade school. Remembering us and that last meeting a year ago... It warmed our hearts.Such a joy!

Nastya is left on the photo in yellow blouse.
But a few minutes later I was even MORE stunning!"Oh, God, I can not believe! I can not believe my own eyes. I can not believe that this has happened ..." I thought at that moment...

Each year in May, we present special gifts to graduates of orphanages with the last meeting with them. We always interested and ask administartion of  orphanages about the children. Who, where and how live after leaving orphanages. In May this year, we asked about these teens and it was sad to hear about Nastya.
That she nowhere, in any college has not entered and stayed the home. I do not know yet everything about her family. But I know that her family is one of the disadvantaged. Maybe just no one was able to help Nastya ... Since that time, thoughts kept running through my head ... Maybe we would have been able to help her? Maybe one day we would have helped her enroll in a college, any school? Maybe... Probably not. Who knows? This happened several times over several months. I by thoughts sometimes came back and thought about Nastya....

Also, since the last few months we are busy most of the problems of teenagers and young adults. I thought several times... What, if we take a ride on several colleges, trade schools in our city and find orphans , those that we know and invite them to church? Maybe we will not be able to help in all their physical needs , but we can tell them about the Lord , about Who will be able to comfort them and help them. Who can be their true Friend and Savior. In the first years, these children are very hard to settle in new places. 
I thought...Maybe if several of them. What if, we will find them and let them know about BOM. That we can pray for them . And we are here to help, what we can.

A time went on... Thoughts had run in my mind. What if? What if?.. In which school to go? Where to find them? and other questions...

A moment later I remembered my thoughts about Nastya... and that to find  graduates  orphanages ... 
I was extremely surprised, amazed and impressed! Oh, my! How it can be? I could not believe!In front of me stood a  beautiful young girl... The one, whose thoughts were spinning in my head a few months. 

Picture was made a year ago on same picnic :)
The one that I thought how and where she is ... But I never thought that I would meet her again! :)Amazing!

So, about 2 weeks ago we met precious young lady Nastya( in green sweater in the photo) and her sweet friend Katya with long beautiful hair. You will not believe it! But Katya is also a graduate of the orphanage, but the other one. They are both first year of study in a trade school and in one group.God is awesome!

Both girls were already in  service of the church and were able to hear the word of God.We also had a lovely fellowship and tea with some young people. :)

I am SO happy and praise God for His goodness and miracles He is doing! :)

Please, pray for these two beautiful souls. Remember in your daily prayers. Pray that they would open their hearts to Jesus and He changed their lives.Thank you!

But there is a sad side of the story. A few days before our meeting with Nastya. Burned down her house and perished her stepfather.All her belongings burned."I have nowhere else to go ..." Nastya said sadly. Poor girl ... Pray for her. Who knows? Is not for this purpose, the Lord has connected our vital roads?

"My substance was not hid from thee, when I was made in secret, [and] curiously wrought in the lowest parts of the earth. Thine eyes did see my substance, yet being unperfect; and in thy book all [my members] were written, [which] in continuance were fashioned, when [as yet there was] none of them". 

But Olga has some issues with health. The doctor said that it can affect the baby. We would be so grateful, if you please support this family in your prayers. Especially for the health of Olga and babe.Thank you very much!

What is doing God

Do you see these 2 young beautiful ladies on the pictures below?One, on the right side, you already know. Our beautiful Olga.The other girl, I want to introduce her to you.I am so excited to tell you what is doing God! :)

First. We really want to thank everyone, who participated and helped raise funds for our student Olga. To get an education and for her daily needs. With God's help, we were able to raise all nesessary money and even a little more  $1.739. :) All Glory to God! Thank you very much to all for your prayers! This is such a great blessing, prayer support!Thank you!Thank you!Thank you for everything!

 One day in September, when we had very cold days. Every day, poured cold and icy rains. The two girls came to the church in summer shoes. Walking in the cold and rain and at a cold puddles.  Only from the thought of it getting cold . When someone asked. "Are you not cold ?" "No", they replied in the affirmative shivering from the cold... 
    Nadya shared with us.When she went to buy boots for girls because they had not. First they tried to help to Olga's friend, Masha. Nadya did not even have time to help discern, whether they are good for Masha, suitability of size, etc. Sweet girl immediately shod boots on her feet . "Yes , Yes good! It`s suitable for me!" . It was obvious that she poor girl, felt so cold that was ready to wear any shoes, just to keep warm. Right from the shop she is pleased was walking home in new boots. Her face and eyes were shining with happiness. :)

Thanks to your support, the two precious girls do not feel cold at feet any more. Thank you!

Ok.Let me tell you from the beginning about Masha.
On that day, when all the students arrived to school and settled in a dormitory, where our Olga now study. It was and our part also, meet with the teachers to know everything, pay for everything, etc. 
  At that day we were sitting in a dorm room, where our student settled and we talked a little on the Christian subject. In the side, on her bed, the other girl sat quietly and attentively listening the conversation. We quickly got acquainted and continued our conversation. She continued to silently listen and watch us . We noticed that she was alone , without parents. "A Brave girl..." , I thought. "She came to school alone, without parents and help". But she kept sat and listened . 
    On that day, we absolutely had no idea that this was just the beginning ...The beginning of what prepared our loving and wonderful Saviour, Lord Jesus. :)

  The next day, when we came to Olga to school to take her to church. Masha came up to us and asked softly, "Can I go with you to church also?" We were surprised and pleased to hear it! "Of course!"  So, she gladly joined with us.
     One day, when we met and became acquainted closer. And when I asked, what school she graduated, I was shocked to hear it. "I graduated from orphanage this year and  came to this school." "What? are you serious ?" She smiled sweetly at me. I was not ready to hear this...
"Oh, Lord, I do not know what you are doing... But this is amazing..."  I prayed in my heart....I was shocked that the Lord has brought to us one more, this precious girl, who spent many years in orphanage. One more soul, who may need the support...

Since that day, for the third consecutive month, Masha faithfully attends every ministry of our church. :)
But that's not all. Other boys and girls from the same school come to us for church service. Is not that amazing? Is not that God's providence? Olga came to school not only get an education, but many of the young people were able to hear the word of God, and grieving soul find peace and rest in the Lord.Isn`t it awesome what is doing God? :)
We are so excited for Masha and other young souls, who visit our church services!

Would you please, pray for Masha and for these young souls? Pray for their salvation and their hearts will be open  to Christ?Thanks a lot!

"For my thoughts [are] not your thoughts, neither [are] your ways my ways, saith the LORD. 
For [as] the heavens are higher than the earth, so are my ways higher than your ways, and my thoughts than your thoughts. 
For as the rain cometh down, and the snow from heaven, and returneth not thither, but watereth the earth, and maketh it bring forth and bud, that it may give seed to the sower, and bread to the eater: 
So shall my word be that goeth forth out of my mouth: it shall not return unto me void, but it shall accomplish that which I please, and it shall prosper [in the thing] whereto I sent it." 
(Isaiah55:8-11) KJV

Sad reality

When we asked Zhenya to show the house where she wanted to live there.

Here's what we saw...

This day was cloudy and gloomy. From what we saw, seemed to become even darker. The house is neglected and in terrible condition...

When we came into the house there was heavy to breathe, despite the fact that the doors there are never closed.I was afraid to breathe there, afraid to pick up a some bacillus TB or even any other of disease. 

Therefore, took a deep breath, by making a few quick pictures, I was in a hurry to leave this place as soon as possible to the street.

If you remember, that I mentioned that Zhenya wanted to live in the house mother in law, who is ill open tuberculosis.Now in this house no one lives. 
We talked to this poor girl about this not good idea, explaining that she and her family can get sick of this terrible disease. Then she said that to make a repair. When we counted how many repairs will cost, and what to do there overhaul, change floors, windows, doors, etc. Bacillus  tuberculosis can live for years in an old and damp house . It turned out that all this is going to be expensive . It will be easier to buy a small and modest house than to make repairs to this house. Where there is no guarantee that you will not become sick of this terrible disease.

It is a very sad reality, Friends...

Terribly that hundreds and thousands of people live in the same state . Alcohol, drugs , poverty , unemployment, without hope and a future... 
Horribly, how Satan destroys the lives of these people. They slowly die without seeing the light, faith in their lives and hopes for the future. 
Awfully and heartbreaking thing is that many of the children live in these homes... Naked, the sick and the hungry can look into your eyes begging bread. 
Sadly, because of this, many thousands of children get into orphanages, baby houses. Abandoned by parents, without care, without seeing or knowing how to receive and give love. With broken hearts and distressed . This is awfully! Terrible how Satan destroys families and lives. It is so and so sad reality...

Zhenya and her family moved to another house in other town. One of the relatives of the husband Kolya gave permission that they lived in her home until spring. This is a very modest and old house.

Many poor people in rural areas live in similar homes. 

But it seems that it's warm in the winter.We are very hope.

God has blessed their movement just in time! Because the next day was going come the owner of the house, where they lived before. It is amazing how God organized everything!

But again need your prayers for this family. Since spring they have nowhere to live again. We think and pray how to help this poor souls...
Also, a neighbor of the house said that in this house there lived a man, who was ill with tuberculosis.The owner, a relative of Kolya, says that's not true. But you'll never know where the truth... As the owner recently got out of prison for murder in a drunken company. Some of relatives still suffering from TB. 

Your prayers still need very and very much for protection of this family!They feel so desperate...Pray that God has provided a good shelter in the future, in 4 months. And for all their spiritual and physical needs.Thanks a lot for your prayer support, Friends!
