FIVE DAYS AT VOLNYANSK CAMP

Posted: 27 July 2015

We had five full, great days of spending time and having tons of fun with children from Volnyansk orphanage. Our schedule was packed with games, quests, bubbles, a water day, and a fair!

We loved seeing the kids smiling every day and happy. Giving them wonderful memories helps overcome the pain that has built up over the years. Every one of these children has their own story and their own past, most of which is enough to give us goosebumps.

Our team became friends with the director and administrators of the camp and God showed His strength and love to them through our time there. They were surprised that it’s possible to play and have fun with the kids and would often come out just to watch and see what we were doing with them. It was a great chance to witness to them about Jesus Christ and tell them it’s not our own love or strength, but His.

Every morning during our leaders’ meeting, we thanked God for the love and peace that we felt while we were there. We know that God loves these kids so much and takes care of each of them. He showed Himself to them through us during those five days in ways we never imagined!

On the last day of our camp, the kids gave us a lot of cards they had made by themselves. They asked us not to go and to stay there with them. They call us now and write to us and say how much they miss us and want to see us again.

We are so grateful to all of you who supported us, the camp, and all the kids in prayer. Please continue to pray that the kids would see and come to know the love of God.

Thanks for celebrating with us!
