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

 

Thank you, Lord. Thank you for reminding me that my ministry here is never pointless...

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...

 

I really love children. Every time I see a little child who is deprived of basic human warmth, love and parental care, tears just come to my eyes...

 

 

 I looked up and saw Egor himself running toward me full-tilt, his face glowing.  He ran up, yelling at the top of his lungs "I found it! I found it!" I was confused..."What did you find, Egor?" I asked. "I found a family!!

 

 

 

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