An orphan's life

Why am I in orphan ministry? (A. Korolyuk)  

Why am I in orphan ministry? It’s very simple, really… 
 
From the time I was a little child myself, I’d heard that there were children who didn’t have their own parents. The thing is, I thought that their problem was easy to fix - they just needed to find themselves parents! However, as I grew up, I came to see that what they needed right now, where they were, was love and care… and more than anything else, to some to know Christ as their Saviour and God as their Father. 
 
I decided that since God has so abundantly poured out His love in my life, I need to use the opportunities Agape gives me to share His love with orphan children. I want them to know Him, His love, and His salvation… that’s why I’m in orphan ministry.

An orphan's life

 Outwardly, Tanya was feisty, a real scrapper... but her eyes were dulled and sad. Her entire being seemed to be focused on her anger at the world around her. Her anger and pain often spilled over into other's lives, hurting those who were weaker than her...

By the mercy of our Lord a miracle has taken place at our adaptation center.  For a long time we had been praying that our guys could work at home, so that the center could be more independent and to give them an opportunity to take part in meeting our needs as a family...

My name is Sergey. I am in third grade. I believe in God because He is my Heavenly Father. I was abandoned by my parents and now I live at an orphanage. I am very fascinated with all topics about God. I enjoy reading Bible stories and learning more about Jesus’ life on earth. I pray and read the Bible regularly. I am glad my Savior is always near. I feel His protection.

 

 On August 25th 2013, Agape Ministry’s new Adaptation Center for Young Men in Krivoi Rog was up and running as the first teenage orphans moved in.

Two orphanage graduates settled in to live with a Christian family there. Anton Dubrovsky and Sasha Korotky became a part of the Sukhovoy family.

 

Unfortunately our mother started to lead bad life and we were taken away from her.
