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 attend “Christian ethic” lessons and I like lessons about God and His love very much. I forgive those who offended me because God commended to do so...

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

 
 

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

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...

 

 

Sometimes feelings of loneliness are strong enough to make you wish you were dead! For children who grow up in orphanages, those feelings are what they live with, day in and day out…
