 International Child Protection Day 2014

 

Agape Ministries has made celebration of International Child Protection Day a yearly event for the orphans of Kherson Region. This year our celebration was held at Kherson Christian Church, with the help of a team of volunteers from the church.

There were 300 children from 10 orphanages present this year. The program for the day was fun-filled and packed with songs and games that the orphan children joyfully and enthusiastically took part in. They also really enjoyed a play put on by the church youth group as well as an encouraging message by pastor Evgeni Sinni. And you should have seen their excitement at the end of the program as they each received presents and ice cream!

This year, we made a point of inviting the graduating classes from the different orphanages out to an Open House at Agape’s Adaptation Center. We wanted them to be able to see for themselves what it’s like to live there. They met the current residents - guys just like them, former orphanage graduates who wanted to let God change there lives by moving to live with a Christian family in the Center. All of the visitors to the Center were welcomed warmly, fed well, and had all of their questions about life in the Center answered thoroughly. 


“We believe that these kinds of celebrations help us express God’s love for these children – that He truly cares for them. We are convinced that events like this, dedicated to making orphans feel special, are something that God uses to work in their hearts , giving them a clearer picture of Him as a loving Creator.”
