Prayer Day Marathon in Kilia

Our prayer marathon has successfully started! Today we took the longest trip on the worst roads and visited the orphanage in Kilia.The trip was long, but it was worth it because we had a chance to spend time with the kids. We reminded the children about our time together in the summer camps. We all enjoyed memories of the Alice in Wonderland camp.

We were playing, singing, and making crafts together. We made a dove on which we wrote our prayers to God.  It's fascinating to hear what children are dreaming about and what their prayers are for. Some of the children were praying for health, good family, for their family and  people they love. Some were praying for reconciliation with their sister and friend, some were asking for the team to come more often and for wellbeing of all people, and of course they were asking for some toys, sweets, trips.
 It reminded us that these kids are just like any other children, which means that they also need to be loved and cared for.  They live with the hope that things will get better. We need to learn from them how to have faith like children. If we look into the eyes of the orphans, we can see God in them.

They need our love and care!  Let us be the instruments of God to share with them His love and attention.
