19 orphans went to our recreation center
24 young orphans had a trip to our recreation center in the country
The month of May at the International Center of Hope is usually quite a busy month when we prepare for the Summer camp for orphans. This time we had 19 graduates and 24 orphans of school age fr om the Republic orphanage of Izhevsk. Workers and volunteers of ICH organized a sort of Prom for the graduates – with shashlyk, a huge campfire, festive meal and presents for teenagers. We have spent a wonderful time together – in discussions, word games, in the fresh air, all together… We know these guys have a big interesting life ahead and we wish them professional and private success!
On the following day 24 orphans aged 6 to 14 y.o. came to Selychka from the Republic Orphanage. They seemed so young, little and trustful after the graduates. But volunteers and workers of ICH managed to find a way towards each heart. These children spent 5 days in Selychka – the days were full of sport games, discussions, Bible teaching and learning Bible verses by heart, making sketches, going to the beach, talking to each other in small groups and so many other things. There was organized a Restaurant for them on the vary last night wh ere they could spend the so called “money” that they earned during the camp helping adults do what was needed. The weather was excellent too – so we really enjoyed this time – events and nature, and of course God’s love that we all could feel through everything and everyone!
We thank all who helped us organizing this camp – financially and in prayer. We could not have done it without you!
