New Year party

Do you see these beautiful young souls together?I am so excited to tell you what God is doing!

We had  New Year party at our local baptist church. Just would like to clarify we that we do not celebrate a New Year. :) But this is a great opportunity to gather together all friends and dear people.Summarize the past year, to share the blessings and the brightest moments that have been during the year, making plans for next year, pray for God's blessing and just have a great time with the children of God, to those who are dear to your heart.

The greatest desire was to gather our orphans and share the love of the Lord with all of them.A little sad that not all of course could come. We had over 12 young adults. Yay! Nevertheless, we had an amazing time!

At the beginning brother Misha as pastor preached. We came into New Year 2014 all church together in prayer!I love that!
Then we played different Biblical games, for those who are very young in Christ and knows a little Scripture and for those, who knows the Bible well enough.

And then at the end we had very fun time!

Everyone was so excited and had so and so fun!

Also we had  a supper of love.
It reminds me place of Scripture:  (Luke 14:16-17) "Then said he unto him, A certain man made a great supper, and bade many. And sent his servant at supper time to say to them that were bidden, Come; for all things are now ready." 

Bible says: (Luke14:12- )"Then said he also to him that bade him, When thou makest a dinner or a supper, call not thy friends, nor thy brethren, neither thy kinsmen, nor [thy] rich neighbours; lest they also bid thee again, and a recompence be made thee. But when thou makest a feast, call the poor, the maimed, the lame, the blind: And thou shalt be blessed; for they cannot recompense thee: for thou shalt be recompensed at the resurrection of the just."
So, we called poor orphans :)

The supper was so delicious!And we had lots of food! :)

No, we had not eaten all at once! :) The next day we had a meeting again and again we continue the evening and fellowship. And then we gave all food to all the orphans. Everyone was happy!

Some kids had lit sparklers :)

It is interesting that in same chapter Luke 14 is the verse 22 "And the servant said, Lord, it is done as thou hast commanded, and yet there is room." 

One of our orphans met a young guy, who wandered in the evening and asked the people to eat. He is homeless and living on the street. Sad, but he is graduate of an orphanage... Yes. This is reality. Without the support, these children live on the street, are survive and just disappear... Our guy invited him to this supper, because we had plenty of room!
He took a shower(we have at church for homeless) and gave him clean clothes.

This guy the name is Sergey, he has a lot of not only physical needs, such as housing and daily bread. We found him temporary shelter. But also spiritual needs, from which he suffers. Therefore, almost all night our pastor Misha spoke with Sergey about his life, about that he needs Jesus, which can fill of joy, love and happiness an emptiness that he has in a heart. We know that there is still a lot of spiritual work with this guy, still a lot of hours spent and not enough slept nights. But is not that what Jesus has called us ? Could you please pray for the salvation of this soul , of the change both his heart and mind.Thanks.

I like as one of our donors said, "I hope you have a wonderful party, that bellies are feed and hearts are full knowing Jesus loves all of them." And this happened! The spending time was absolutely amazing!
We had a wonderful fellowship!Some orphans first time in life was at church and hear the Gospel. Some first time in life had fellowship with Christians. Some probably first time in their life could hear and see how Jesus loves them and desires to change their life.

Thousands times thank you to those, who helped to make it happen!Jesus is so awesome!  :)
