Zhovten kids hosted in Yuzhniy

The Yuzhniy team that serves in the Zhovten orphanage hosted some of the children during the fall break. They decided to take the kids to meet with the widows of Bethel church. These ladies have prayed for the children in Zhovten for four years. The topic of the meeting was  consistency and it lasted almost three hours. Our partner in ministry, Stefan was also invited to the meeting. During this meeting we showed a video about our ministry and about life in the orphanages. There were testimonies from the volunteers, students, and orphanage graduates. We had 5 students and 3 graduates attending our meeting and also stayed with us over the fall break. 

We prayed blessings over the children and shared with them our testimonies. The children also shared their testimonies. One girl had asked our team some time ago to pray for her mother, that she would stop drinking, and come back to the family. She shared that her mom came to the family and had not been drinking for two months.

Children from the orphanage prepared  hand made cards and gave flowers to the widows. After the meeting, we had tea and sweets. 

During the fall break, the children attended the church service, prayer meeting, and also celebrated the Birthday of one of the ladies. It was a great time with the children and we were sad to return them to the orphanage on Monday. 

We thank God for this amazing time as well as  for your financial and prayer support.
