Troitskaya 1-30

On January 30th, the team finally got to the orphanage for Christmas celebrations! Many of the kids were not at the orphanage during December and January because of the holidays, so the team waited til most returned.
Together with children, they remembered  Christmas story - it was an excellent Christmas musical! The narrator was telling the Nativity story, accompanied by Christmas songs, and all the characters of the story showed the pantomime. The characters in the story were played by the team and each class also participated. Thus every child, the team, and the teachers in a special way immersed into the story and really pondered what Christmas is all about. In the end they gave each child a gift the that had asked for the last time the team visited.  The kids were happy! It was a joyous celebration!

Many thanks to all who were involved in this trip! Blessings to you!
