Balta 11-23

As usual, Dima and Anya visited with the children at the Balta orphanage on Saturday. There were some team building games with all the kids at the beginning, which the kids really enjoyed.
The girls had some small group discussion and then made some special boxes.
The boys discussed the Bible story of the Prodigal Son. It's hard to see these boys in this situation at this boarding school. They are not prepared for adulthood and for living life outside of this institution. Dima talked with the boys about setting goals and achieving them. It is an important and relevant topic for them as they face leaving the orphanage.
Please pray for these children and for the volunteers to love them, teach them, and support them in their lives.
