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...

I, Dima Tedeyev, was born on September 11, 1995 in Orenburg, Russia.

Soon after, when I’d just turned 3 years old, my mother took my sister and me and moved to Ukraine, in pursuit of personal happiness...

 

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.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

As I approach the classroom, I can already hear the noise of loud voices and laughter. I'm on my way to a group of 9th graders today...

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