The young people often bored at trade schools. They do not know what do after lessons... Often they just wandering on territory of trade school or sit at dorm rooms. They are like sheeps without shepherd. Not surprised. They left orphanages at age 16 (some even 15) -17 years old. Sweet souls feel lonely and depressed... Because of this kids get in different troubles. Stealing. Alcohol. Drugs. Prostitution. Missing lessons. Running away from trade school... So, police often comes to trade schools :( Our hearts are broken to see them in such condition... So it was made a decision to have a special retreat for the students.
When the day came. While we waited for the arrival of students from other cities, we had a fun time in the local entertainment complex with few others. I just love to seeing them laugh! Everyone had such a wonderful time!
God provided such a beautiful weather at this day! We were greatly surprised because we had chilly days earlier. We enjoyed the last warm day :) By the way we have very cold days here now and it was snowing a day before!I am not ready yet for cold, windy and frosty days!
Two Nastya quickly became friends on that day, although they are from different cities and trade schools. They still often talk on the phone. Is not it sweet? :)
The young adults were amazed by so many wonderful creatures! We could hear always. "Wow! Look at this! What it is? So beautiful!"It's like a beautiful melody for the ears to hear their enthusiasm and joy. I just love! Love it! :)
Students often malnourished in schools. They were so happy to eat something tasty!And of course they were excited to have an ice cream! :) If you ever been in Ukraine. I bet you know we have a delicious ice cream! Ha ha! ;)
But I would like to stay on this guy, who fed almost all the animals in the zoo! Lol
Some time ago, we were told that he is a horrible and rude guy. He ran away from lessons in orphanage. He quarreled with all the teachers. Fighted with guys. No one could manage him. Rude fellow and ill-mannered. In general, everything that there is only a negative, everything has been said about him. Another word a bad guy.We understood there is some trouble. But what?..
When we held the first meeting with the graduates of orphanage, he could not wait for the end of the meeting. Always asking, how long? when the end of the meeting? He seemed to be was not interested, because playing games on his cell phone. Honestly, several times I thought he will stand up and go away...
At the next meeting, he sat in silence without asking anything.
Then again several meetings. He began to talk to us and even escort to the door.
When later we arrived at the trade school, where he enrolled, he ran to meet! "You arrived! I'm so glad to see you all!" :)
When we invited him to the zoo, his joy knew no bounds!Sasha wanted to feed all of the zoo animals. When the meal was over for the giraffe. He raked up all the branches and leaves on the ground, only to feed the giraffes. Sweet :)
"Aunt Alla, see I'm feeding giraffes!!! Did you see it?! " I don't know how many times he told it... :)))
He ran the zoo from one cell to another faster than us. Precious boy was delighted! We were worried that would not lose sight of him as the zoo is huge. We could only scream out. Sasha, stop! Sasha wait! And where is Sasha ??? :)))
At same time we could not believe our own eyes...He was different... He was not same guy as we were told a while ago! Trust me! He was another guy! He was not rude. He respected us whenever it was possible. He behaves well enough for teen age. I would say backward! Sasha is kind, organized and responsible guy! He is creative and smart. We have learned it giving him some affairs. He did great! We just could not believe and our hearts rejoiced.On this day, we learned about Sasha so much beauty of his soul. He's another guy... Yes, he has some difficulties in behavior. But it's little things, and all can learn. It is just need time. :)
At the end when we were leaving, all the kids certainly were grateful. Sasha thanked several times and said, It was the best day of my life! I even could not think that can be both spent so fun and a great time.
When Sasha saw a camel he was amazed!
Oh, his fur is so soft! I even could not think.Many times he touched and stroked the camel.
And in the end of the day he said, Do you know what? It was my dream to see a camel. I`m so thankful you made my dream true.
The tears flow as I am typing these lines... How the soul is precious in His sight. How good, merciful and loving our God Father. We had one goal, but God has shown us more... We were concerned why and what? God showed us the answer. How often do people estimate could be wrong ... It is simple enough to try to understand such as Sasha and just love. Spending time together. Rejoice and have fun. He is precious in God's eyes and his soul is beautiful. He just spiritually wounded and needed healing of the soul, which can only give a loving Jesus. Praying for this sweet soul.
We thank God for the opportunity He has given us and all, who made it is possible to bless these beautiful young souls. And also that God makes the dreams of young people real. This is such a precious and warms heart. Thank you very much from bottom of our hearts! Thank you all for your big and generous hearts!♥
