Education (11)

Friday. Biblical class at school. The topic is "God never changes". Galina brought her photos as a child as an example of the fact that everything around us and we ourselves change with time but God was and is and will always be the same! If He said that He loves us and will never abandon us He will not change His mind. He can't stop loving us even if we did. And this incredible news is the Gospel.

Teaching drawing in children's prison

Written by
There are children's prisons in Kenya, where children are imprisoned mostly for theft. Marina wanted to start going there to teach children something that could be helpful in life. And finally, there has apeared free time to take this up. Shes been thinking for a long time what to teach them, and recently, having awoken up in the middle of the night, she heard a voice inside herself: teach them to draw! Indeed, it can be useful for them, because in these regions there are many Italian tourists Our city even has a tourist market where local craftsmen make different things with their own hands, paint them, and sell them. A couple of months ago, when we came to prison on Christmas Day, there were about 30 of them, and now, thank God, 12. 11 boys and 1 girl named Mariam. Marina will teach her to knit. In the first lesson there was a free topic, I wanted to see their level.
We were holding teenage ministry and were talking about the importance of dreams. If you have one, you need to start working on it right away.

Sunday school

Written by
This is how our Sunday school goes. We told the children how the angel came to Mary and proclaimed the good news.
Our teachers and volunteers always come up with new ideas in classes on what is interesting for children. Today was a needlework lesson! Often, children have to wear well-worn clothes that quickly tears. So they wear duds. Today we taught kids to sew buttons on and sew holes! Of course, it is difficult to learn any child from the first time, but we will continue to learn how to do it together. The guys will be able to repair their clothes themselves and not wait for the mother to do it.
We together with the children were drawing using paints yesterday! Oh, how problematic it is while drawing putting sheets of paper on benches, when the wind blows away your sheet if you get distracted for a moment, and it’s typical of children to do it quite often. Besides, considering that children use paints only for the second time in their lives, we had to explain the particularities and rules of using paints and brushes that seem obvious to us, but not to children who see them for the second time. Moreover, we did not just draw for fun, we participate in the drawing competition held in Bryansk. And the topic of our drawings is "Football Championship" and "My Family". Tomorrow we will continue to draw, but we will take other topics! Thanks to Larissa Drakina for a possibility of participating in this contest, and the opportunity to win prizes. In our plans, there is a construction of a school for poor children in Malindi. ✅We are raising funds to build a school using the Boomstarter crowdfunding platform❤ ✅a card of the Sberbank Bank of Russia: 4276 1340 0294 3682 .. ..
This time I had puzzles with me. At some point I was afraid that someone will be run down in this jostle. I had to raise my voice. A little. At boys. Now I am 1000% sure - children didn't see toys. Without my help they were not able to put together puzzles for 35 pieces. So how to go to Africa without bags of differnet goods after what we have seen? (:
