Shopping with the Kids

Tuesday, November 29, 2011

We recently took the Sparrow's Hope Kids shopping. This shopping trip was dedicated to buying items for the winter. Most of the kids bought jackets, shoes, jeans, sweatsuits, personal items and socks. Thanks to our sponsors who make it possible to provide for these kids. We are really enjoying having many of the kids come to the worship room quite often.


Birthday Boxes

Thursday, October 27, 2011

Recenlty we were able to share two birthday boxes with Sparrow's Hope Kids! Sergei and Galina both received their packages and were so thankful for the generosity of their sponsors. The pictures say it all...

Thanks to all our sponsors who are sharing their love and their blessings with these children. Your generosity is changing lives.


Sparrow's Hope Kids Update

Wednesday, September 14, 2011

The orphanage closed on the last day of August and all the kids have moved to their new homes. On Sunday, September 4, we hosted a picnic for them at the Worship Room followed by a concert with our friends Pasha, Ignat and Artem who make up the band Unbelievable. The kids had a great time. Out of 30 kids living in dormitories and in foster care in the city we had about 25 attend events that weekend. We open the Worship Room from 3 to 7 PM everyday but Monday and they are attending pretty well.

There are seven boys who live in a dorm without showers (if you can imagine that!)and who also do not have cafeteria privileges! Right now Lora and the ladies from our church are feeding them a meal everyday and I give them care packages containing ramen noodles, instant mashed potatoes, cookies, tea, etc. Thanks to our sponsors who make it possible to help these young men. We also give them the opprotunity to shower regularly. They really appreciate the help that we give them. They are also attending our Bible Classes and Game Night each weekend. Please keep the kids in your prayers.


Shopping with the Kids

Friday, September 2, 2011

On Saturday, August 27, 2011 Lora, Dasha and Zhenya took 25 kids from Hope Orphanage shopping at the outside market. The kids had a great time shopping. The kids were all moving this week from the orphanage to their new homes in the technical school dormitories or in foster care homes. Lora invited the kids to visit us at the worship room where they can use the computer lab with internet access and do their laundry free of charge. She also invited them to attend our weekly classes and a picnic to kick off our new ministry to these kids on Sunday, September 4, 2011. Please be praying all the kids will decide to participate in the picnic and the weekly classes. Thanks to all our sponsors who make it possible for us to help these orphan children.


What's Going On...

Thursday, June 30, 2011

It was a sad day recently when I went to Hope Orphanage to disassemble the shelves for Sparrow's Hope Store. I also took the computers from the computer lab. It is sad to us that Hope Orphanage is closing just when our program was running so well. However, we have created a computer lab in the worship room. We will also install a washing machine and dryer in the worship room in the next few weeks. We are gearing up for the first of September when the kids who are going to the technical schools will move to their dormitories.

The Hope Orphanage kids are at summer camp currently and will be there until the middle of August. The orphanage director told us she will provide information about where the children will be living when they leave the orphange and try to help us arrange a meeting with foster parents for those kids who are going into foster care. We hope to maintain contact with and continue to provide help for as many of the sponsored children as possible.

When the kids arrive back at the orphanage after summer camp we will have another shopping trip with them to help them get ready for the start of school. We recently delivered supplies to them that they would need for camp.

Thanks to all our sponsors for making a difference in the lives of these children.


Party at Hope Orphanage

Friday, May 27, 2011

Today was the last day of school for kids in Ukraine and we had a party for the kids at Hope Orphanage. The kids put on a small concert/talent show, and we had food for them following. Everyone had a great time and the kids were well dressed because they went shopping recently and were instructed to buy nice clothes for the final bell (a really important event in Ukraine). Before we could leave the orphanage, several of the kids wanted to drive again! (I let some of them drive the other day when we went shopping). Thanks to all our sponsors who make it possible to provide important things and events for these children.


Shopping with the Hope Orphanage Kids

Wednesday, May 25, 2011

Today we took 15 more kids shopping at the outdoor market. They were instructed to buy some nice clothes for the last day of school. I am always amazed at the way these kids share with one another and how they make their money stretch so far. I had a group of guys and we finished first so they wanted to sit in the car with me which soon led to driving around the parking lot. It was the first time any of these kids had driven - scared Lora to death, made the kids SO HAPPY! Thanks to our donors for making it possible to help these children.
