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

 

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...

 

 

When she first came to live with us in Agape's Adaptation Center,  it seemed that she would never ever open up to anyone again, never speak of the pain in her heart...

 

As I watched the video about the plight of Ukrainian orphans, my eyes filled with tears as I began to see how great their need is - and began to understand that God wanted to use me to serve them...

 

 

It breaks my heart every time an orphan child shares her story. I am shocked and...

 
 

I like “Christian ethic” lessons … they tell us about mercifulness and God's love. I become much more peaceful and relived.
