This absolutely breaks my heart friends...It is such a common here and often happens. But sometimes a situation or a story has something special and especially heartbreaking...
In March we visited Zhenya`s family and had a wonderful biblical fellowship with her husband Kolya and her brother Ruslan.
A few days ago we visited Zhenya again. Day seemed was ordinary and as all workaday. All blossom and smells, trees, flowers, people are preparing for sowing, everything looks so wonderful and amazing. You enjoy and delight by beauty of God`s creation.
A small boy Vitya grows healthy and cute little man. He is so precious! His beautiful blue eyes melted my heart :)
We brought diapers, toys and some clothes.
Also, thanks to your donations we were able to buy groceries for the family.
But there was a boy with a sweet smile on his face.
-Is he a neighbor boy came to play? we asked.
-No, this is my nephew,- said sadly Zhenya. Roman cries often and wants to father and mother...
-Where is the mother and father ? What's the matter ?
Mother Roman recently released from prison for murder. Among drunk people killed someone. Father of the boy still is in prison. When he will be out, unknown.
A few months ago, his mother brought this little boy into the house Zhennya and left him there. She abandoned him...Poor little boy...He is only 6 years old.
Zhenya in despair did not know what to do. Tried to find any clothes and take care of the boy. This autumn he should go to school. His aunt Zhenya does not know how to help him and what to do. Thus Roman awhile already lives in this poor family, where the other day must be born another baby...
This is so and so sad and heartbreaking. But was more heavy to hear that mother of this sweet boy was in orphanage... And in same orphanage, where I have been many years ago. This absolutely breaks my heart. ...Typing this blog post with tears in eyes...It is hard. It is realy hard and hurt.
It's like a vicious circle. Children left walls orphanages, and then years later, their own children get in the same orphanages. And then again, all the same. And so from year to year...
I can not stop my tears...It is so hearbreaking and hurt... Knowing the fate and life of some of my classmates. Some no longer alive, they died, some were imprisoned several times, a few of my classmates girls birth of illegitimate children, some drink alcohol. And it's scary. Scary and painful how Satan mocks the fate of orphans.
It is spiritual war, friends. It is longest spiritual God's war in the world for souls, for their salvation. Over two thousand years ago, Jesus Christ died on the cross and rose again to give new life and new heart in Christ. Life is full of meaning, happiness, peace and joy. But the answer to the call of God depends on us. Do we wish this life? New life with a new heart filled with incredible joy in Christ and happiness?The life with a forgiven heart and perfect peace inside?
Jesus told Christians to go and preach the gospel throughout the world. And this spiritual war for souls, goes on for over two thousand years already.
The BOM`s main goal is to change the terrible statistic of graduates that our country has. That children, who leave orphanages, their temporary homes, could live independent and successful life for God`s glory and praise.That Jesus has changed their lives and hearts and give meaning to life, as in his time filled ours, BOM team.
Also please, pray for this little abandoned boy Roman. He can be send in orphanage also...Only God can do a miracle that this little precious and sweet soul will not be send there...Thanks.Thank you very much, friends!
