I have been praying to find you

We are sooo excited these days and praising God for His goodness and astonishing love!

Do you see a precious girl in pink sweater? Her name is Anya. The picture was made in 2007. She was about 10 years old at this time.

She was in very and very poor orphanage, which BOM visited on a regular basis. It was so fun to watch pictures made many years ago... Such a good memory! :)

Anya in red sweater. I think, we were talking about Jesus with girls :)

The orphanage was closed in 2009 because of financial problems and kids were transferred to other orphanages.We did not know for a long time where these kids and how they are doing... But something incredible has happened these days!

Lena was at hospital with her beautiful Sophia. She met Anya at hospital and they became friends. Once, Lena showed her family pictures to her new friend.  When Sophia was born, when we took her out from hospital and so on. And when Anya saw the pictures, she pointed on BOM staff and cried out, "Oh, my! I know! I know these people!"

Very soon Oksana received a message, "I have been praying to find you all! How I can meet you? I have been praying for years." Wow! We were so deeply impressed!
Through few exchanged sentences we have read the next... "I want to accept Jesus Christ but do not know how to do it... Please, help me!" What?! Wow! It was something incredible to hear!!! 

The very next day we met Anya and she accepted Jesus Christ as her personal Saviour! We had such a sweet meeting and wonderful fellowship! Later the young lady said, you even can not imagine how I`m happy that find you again! :) Awesome blessing! This is not about us. But about the almighty and merciful God, who answered the prayer of orphaned girl, who prayed so long! Praise God!!!! He is soooooo very good!!!!!

After graduating orphanage and trade school Anya met a young man, fell in love and became pregnant. The 8 months ago she gave birth a sweet little boy Dima. But several months ago the young man left his family. So, the young mother forced to grow her son by herself... 

Our Heavenly Father soooo miraculously answered the prayer of this precious orphaned girl!Amazing!!!

This reminds me a place of Scripture in Bible. Acts 10

10:1 There was a certain man in Caesarea called Cornelius, a centurion of the band called the Italian band, 
10:2 A devout man, and one that feared God with all his house, which gave much alms to the people, and prayed to God alway. 
10:3 He saw in a vision evidently about the ninth hour of the day an angel of God coming in to him, and saying unto him, Cornelius. 
 10:4 And when he looked on him, he was afraid, and said, What is it, Lord? And he said unto him, Thy prayers and thine alms are come up for a memorial before God. 
10:5 And now send men to Joppa, and call for one Simon, whose surname is Peter: 
10:6 He lodgeth with one Simon a tanner, whose house is by the sea side: he shall tell thee what thou oughtest to do. 
10:23 Then called he them in, and lodged them. And on the morrow Peter went away with them, and certain brethren from Joppa accompanied him
10:24 And the morrow after they entered into Caesarea. And Cornelius waited for them, and had called together his kinsmen and near friends. 
10:30 And Cornelius said, Four days ago I was fasting until this hour; and at the ninth hour I prayed in my house, and, behold, a man stood before me in bright clothing, 
10:31 And said, Cornelius, thy prayer is heard, and thine alms are had in remembrance in the sight of God. 
10:32 Send therefore to Joppa, and call hither Simon, whose surname is Peter; he is lodged in the house of one Simon a tanner by the sea side: who, when he cometh, shall speak unto thee. 
10:33 Immediately therefore I sent to thee; and thou hast well done that thou art come. Now therefore are we all here present before God, to hear all things that are commanded thee of God...

This is such a great encouragement for us that our visits of kids in orphanages are not vain! These seeds of God`s word planted in their precious children's heart bring fruits of Spirit in His time :) God is soooo very good and doing incredible and miraculous things!!! Praise Him!!!
