My last part of the winter camp report will be the longest:) Again, I am picking the pictures to tell about the moments that I personally liked the most, so there can be many more other opinions:)
I love the facts that kids enjoy craft time. Not only the girls but the boys as well were heavily involved in everything that I planned for them:) I think their favorite is still - the AWANA's race cars:)
Few kids from the orphanage came with some bad clothes on them and they were in big need of boots too. On this picture Aflaton is trying on his new winter pants and showing off his new boots to hos brother.
One of the boys groups eating their meal:)Every day at nap time Grandpa Dub and I were visiting a group of kids where he was sharing his testimony and his life (Dub is 88 years old!) The kids just love spending time with Grandpa.
Our VERY late tea time of the camp leaders - great times!
The girls are coloring their cars.
kids singing for the Lord
Our special Christmas Eve (in Russia it is on January 6th) banquet!
More letters from the friends in America.
I just love their faces:)
Sasha - a very sweet boy from the orphanage, his life was very hard before he got to the orphanage and he has been smoking for several years. Because our camp is non-smoking the teacher, who brought him thought it will help him to stop smoking. Praise the LORD, who gave him the freedom to stop!
Dasha and Yana - such a sweet girls! They are the young leaders at the camp.On the final night we did a special prayer for all the kids with different stations, where they prayed for salvation for their friends and families, thanked God for things, prayed for each other, it was so neat to see the kids pray!!! Here two girls (one of them is from the non Christian family) are praying for each other and then with the pastor Michail. And they are crying...
Thanking God on the big paper
Aflaton and his new friend Tom. That night Aflaton wanted to take a picture with everyone in the camp, he said that he wants to stay there forever and that he doesn't wants to go back to the orphanage...
More friendships have been made:)
Kids thanked God for the camp and many other things.
I also got prayed for, which was very neat!
Last shot and Good bye's!
Thank you LORD for such a wonderful camp that you let us to be a part of! Thank You for those who excepted Jesus in their hearts and thank You for all hearts that where changed including mine.
