Joy of little ones

Few days ago BOM was able to visit little ones.Oh, my! I wish soooo badly you see the joy and delight these little cuties! :) During our visit was so much laughing and excitement!It was fantastic!

We told them Bible story, Jesus is our Shepherd and we are His sheeps. 

It was so cute and adorable when they sang! Aren't they cute little sheeps? ;)

We played games and they rejoiced so much!

Look at this cute face! I love it!!! ♥

Kiddies loved to get sweets!Mmm.

 But the most, they soooo excited to get balloons! They started to scream and jump! It was hard to calm them down. Ha ha!

Also BOM provided big box of clothes to these little ones. Thank you so much to those, who make it possible!How wonderful!


This year God blessed with apricots in Ukraine as never before. :) I would say it is a lot! If you drive, you can see it everywhere and so many.

When I was in U.S. in California this year. Honestly, I was shocked why you can`t pick up the oranges, if it is rotting on the ground? You should only buy it. :) It was so hard to watch you can not have oranges for free, knowing how it is expensive in Ukraine.  In Ukraine you can have fruits for free!  If it is on the roads, streets, forest, you can pick up fruits and no one tell you nothing :)  But NOT in someone's garden or private backyard! lol. 

The owner told us nothing. So, we were glad to get some apricots for free! They are delicious! Mmm.

We thank God we have nicer weather this week. Last week was terribly hot! Phew! It is so hard if you do not have air conditioner at home! Ha ha! :)

We got tired very much because of bumpy roads on the way but we were thrilled to provide and take care of sweet young people!


It is such beautiful and amazing blessing getting tired physically to serve Jesus Christ! :) Your heart is full of great fulfillment, accomplishment and pure joy.

Project (Proverbs 6:6-8)

Go to the ant, thou sluggard; consider her ways, and be wise: 
Which having no guide, overseer, or ruler, 
Provideth her meat in the summer, and gathereth her food in the harvest. 
Proverbs(6:6-8)

We want to be wise like ant and be ready for winter :) The same truth we teach these precious young people.


We have 3 reasons to start this new project which we called "Proverbs 6:6-8" :)

1) We all want to be ready for the coming winter.

2) Situation in Ukraine is unstable because of the war and unstable economy.
Prices are inflated terribly! And it will continue to go up. Everything became very expensive for 50-100-200% But salary remain the same. Most of orphaned young people get salary around $50 per month. It is very difficult especially young families who have babies. Sometimes they can`t find a job at all and stay hungry often. If young adults survived before, now it became worse...

3) Economists predict default in Ukraine. We had the default in 90 years. It was terrible time. We don`t know or it will happen. Thank God, if not! We pray God be merciful to Ukraine. But we should be ready. 

So, what we are going to do? 

We are going to canning and preserving vegetables and fruits. 

We are going, if God would allow, to pick the raspberries :) 

We are going to buy some vegetables and canned food what can stay for a long time. Such as potatoes, onion, carrot, sunflower oil, rice, sugar, bouquet, flour and so on for the year. 
Also powder and personal care items. We are going to do it for around 20 young people! It is going to be huge project during month or two!

But we need your help :) We start a new fundraising and we need $2,300 what will help around 20 young people not be hungry during the year and save lots of money because prices go up everyday here. 

We kindly asking you. Please, prayerfully consider this request and need. If you feel God leading your heart. Please, donate through Blue Button PitchIn on the right side of the blog. Or you can donate directly through PayPal thebibleorphanministry@gmail.com And please, leave a message "preparing for the winter". This will help us not pay fees. Thanks. Be sure, we will add your amount to the button on the blog. Also you can send donation by check, make check payable to:
Bible Orphan Ministry 404 Greenview Dr. Caledonia MI 49316,  only for those, who in the U.S.

Any your small gift $5.00 can be very helpful! We can buy 2 kilo tomatoes :) You can be part of huge project and your blessing not only can help feed young souls but encourage them God loves and cares of them :)

If you can't donate. Could you please, share this need with your friends, church, family etc? Any your participation is a great blessing for us! Thank you very much! May God bless you!

What an incredible day we had with these sweet souls!Oh, my! If I could  make pictures HOW they hugged and kissed us! It was so sweet and precious! Such a lovely and soooo priceless moment!!!

We had puppet show which they love very much and so excited!

Bible story about the good Shepherd, our Lord Jesus. 
Nina such sweet and smart girl! Each time we come, it breaks our hearts to think how she could blossom in a loving family. But too late now. She is young lady, who can't be adopted because of the age... So heartbreaking. :(

We played game where the children  being the good shepherd and guiding the "sheep" back home. They had soooo much fun! Wow!

It was so sweet to see their joy.


                          video

In the end Bible time, everyone received sweets.

Boys, boys, so sweet boys

Okay. We had one more meeting! Yay! With boys. And it was awesome!

Our Bible story was about Moses and burning bush.Exodus 3-4

I did not want to use only flanellograf and was thinking about something special... When we were ready leave for the orphanage God gave me an idea!I love how God works!

(Exodus 4:6) And the LORD said furthermore unto him, Put now thine hand into thy bosom. And he put his hand into his bosom: and when he took it out, behold, his hand was leprous as snow. 

We took a wheat flour in a bowl. I hid my hand into the bosom, turned toward them of  back. Oksana and Nadya helped me quickly get dirty hand with flour. Then I  plucked it out of bosom already covered with "leprosy". It was chilly day, my sweater helped me to hide the hand.Ha ha!

4:9 And it shall come to pass, if they will not believe also these two signs, neither hearken unto thy voice, that thou shalt take of the water of the river, and pour it upon the dry land: and the water which thou takest out of the river shall become blood upon the dry land.

We colored water to red color with help of manganese crystals . It did not turn of course, to red as I wanted but the raspberry color. :)  But boys love it!  They were amazed how clean water became colorful in front of their eye!Ha ha!

4:2 And the LORD said unto him, What is that in thine hand? And he said, A rod. 
4:3 And he said, Cast it on the ground. And he cast it on the ground, and it became a serpent; and Moses fled from before it. 

We did not had serpent. Lol.I just cast "rod" on the ground. Hmm.Now I think to find a toy serpent. :) That would be great! 

When I cast the rod on the ground smarter boys asked. "Was it real? The rob became to serpent? It look like a fairytale?" "Do you want to say that God is liar?" we answered. 
So, we had a little discussion. ;)

Boy loved this special moments during Bible story! It helped them to remember and answer questions during the game "Burning bush".


Everything turned just great!

The Bible verse what we learned, was on Bible craft we made in the end.

They were so glad to make the craft!

Such a precious smiles :)


Andriy worked so hard cutting out. He didn't want that we help him :)

"Please, take picture of me with the craft!" :)

My favorite one! So sweet!

Boys were soooo excited by the meeting and all were so active! Oh, my! You have to see their joy and admiration! Such sweet, sweet boys who we so love dearly!It is such a great joy and blessing to serve and love them! ♥

With girls about the 12 spies

Last week we visited these sweet girls.

As always we continue our "travel on Bible" with these young ladies telling Bible stories.

We told them Biblical history about 12 spies. It was fun when dressed up "spies" brought huge grape what we made from balloons.They loved it!

During a Bible time we played a game which we called "To Eat grape" :)

Who gave the right answer to the question of history, had the right to tear away the grape under the number to a question they answered. As always girls were excited to play!

They liked more to tear away the grape than answer questions. Ha ha!

 Also we learned Bible verse (1 Corinthians 16:13) "Watch ye, stand fast in the faith, quit you like men, be strong." 

And in the end we made craft, spies carrying the grape.

This sweet girl always says she can't color. But after few minutes trying she did really well.


Most of the girls is very insecure, they lack confidence and always say that they can not do something.We cannot do a lot of things... But we try to break this mindset and teach them something, even a little bit, that they see and feel that they can do something and they are important to God. You could see their joy when they manage to do something!It is such joy to see their smiles and happy faces!

We are so thankful Jesus for the opportunity to visit these sweet souls!

Please, meet Diana! :)

Oh, my! Look at this little cutie! Those chubby cheeks are so adorable!  Such a cutie pie! Isn't she? :)Please, meet little Diana!



Stella says, "I am very happy God gave me a daughter".

Mother and daughter feels good.Thank you all so very much for prayers!!!! What a miracle! The sweet family is very thankful to you all :)

But your prayers still needed.
Stella had a cesarean operation. She needs time for recovering of her health. It will be very hard for her physically. So, we make a list who and when can help her in first few weeks or months. Because Vadim works every day and he is not able to help his wife. The money enough only pay for renting of apartment.Also Stella gets some medication after surgery. Any your gift of love to help mother to recover fast, would be greatly appreciated! The family spent lots of money for surgery and even had to borrowed more. BOM supports this sweet family but we still need your help. But the most, we ask you for prayers!Thanks a lot!
