Jesus said: I will not leave you as orphans, I will come to you. (John 14:18)
May 29 was a very special day for both children and workers at Cahul orphanage when Moldova for Christ team visited the orphanage and presented Christian program along with much needed help for each child and for the institution. There are 56 orphans at this orphanage.
Our program included Agape Puppets team performance, Bible story with participation of children from orphanage, Christian songs, and games. Volunteers from Balti and Chisinau traveled to Cahul to conduct the program. Children received us with joy, sang with our team with much enthusiasm, and played games.
For more than three months we teach weekly Precept Bible study to these children. But this time, besides spiritual part of our visit, we also presented special gift for each child, which included toiletries, some school supplies, clothes and of course, lots of sweets. At the same time we helped the institution as well – with electrical tea pots, washing powder, and kitchen soap.
All these gifts will not replace their parents, but we want to be next to these children, to spend time with them as much as we can, and to express love of Christ. It was a blessing to visit these abandoned ones and to care for them. While on Earth, Jesus spent time not just with adults, but with children too. And they remain to be a blessing even when they do not have parents or when their parents do not understand this truth.
Every time we come to an orphanage we fall in love with the ones that live there and we do not want to leave the place. Children follow us to the door and ask to come back soon. Please pray about helping us reach more orphans and plant the seed of the Word of God into their precious hearts.
