An orphan's life

Why am I in orphan ministry?  (T. Rudyuk) 

Why am I in orphan ministry...? Well, God used a presentation by Sergei Nesteruk, national director of Agape Ministries to really get my attention. He showed me that I could take his love to needy children in orphanages. As I watched a video clip about the plight of orphans in our country, my eyes just filled with tears as I began to see just how great their need truly is - and began to understand that God wanted to use me to reach them.

My greatest desire, the biggest thing that motivates me is this: I want to help these children come to see the amazing love that God has for them, his Father’s heart of compassion and care, his concern for their lives. I want to help them understand that he loved them so much that Jesus came and died on the cross to save them – so that they could be with him forever! 

I also want for them to see God’s love in and through me as I love them, giving of myself. I really hope and pray that our amazing Lord and Father will be honored and glorified as I serve these children.

An orphan's life

 

I want to demonstrate to them that they are not alone, not rejected – and that they are precious to God, and to us

 

 

The Lord took my life into His own hands and began to change me...

"Child, I’ve been praying for you for years and years!
I ran into this woman one day, carrying a toddler and pulling his older brother along by the hand... I could see that she was drunk and in quite bad shape, so I stopped and did what I could to help her..."

 

 

 

God wants us to believe in Him. God wants to help us. Every lesson we learn more and more about Him

 
 

 

Orphan ministry had crossed my mind once in a while, but more as an abstract idea. Sure, it was something that was worth doing, but I didn't have the slightest notion that God could use me...
