Christian ethics in orphanages

By God’s mercy, we had the opportunity not only to teach Christian ethics, but to share our experience with other teachers.

01In October of last year, God allowed me to participate in the international, scientifically-practical conference “The modern world of blind: Character formation in the informational society for special needs personalities,” which took place in Klevan’s orphanage for children with sight defects. During this conference, I introduced the lesson in Christian ethics on the topic: “Human in God’s world” for 5 graders. The golden verse of the lesson is: “I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made; your works are wonderful, I know that full well” (Psalm 139:14). When colleagues said that this lesson touched their hearts and made them meditate on spiritual questions, I felt that this was an important and valuable lesson for me.

Bible study groups for pedagogy

01September and October were eventful and blessed months for pedagogy in the Zdolbuniv district. Job evaluations get harder for teachers of Christian ethics, and the number of hours for “Christian ethics” is shortened. However, we continue meeting to get to know God’s character through the seminar “God wants you to see Him,” and practically apply this knowledge in our lives.

Cooperation in Gospel spread

Due to cooperation between the “Hope to People” education department and the Bible League of Ukraine, the textbooks and workbooks for Christian ethics classes were distributed among elementary school teachers. Rivne, Zdolbuniv, Vinnitsja, Kolomija, Nikopol’, Klevan’, and Kuniv schools received approximately 2000 “The Best Creation” textbooks, 2000 “Who Created this World” textbooks, 3000 “Overcome Evil with Good” textbooks, and 7400 teacher instructions and workbooks for students.

01We are very grateful to God and the people who worked on creating these workbooks, which help children from a young age to learn God’s truth.

Christian day-camp in Rivne Ukrainian Gymnasium

01From 28th of May until the 1st of June 2012, children Christian day-camp with the topic “Life is not a game, but very like it” took place in Rivne Ukrainian Gymnasium. Every day, about 50 children from 5-7th grades were coming to the day-camp. Most of them, throughout the academic year participate in a volunteer Christian ethics class (Ruslana Kovalchuk is the teacher). The day camp included Bible classes, worship songs, different hobby activities: crafts, drama, music, and sports. During the last day of camp, children were participating in the market at which children could buy different things for themselves (school utensils, sweets) for money, which they earned for active participation and good behavior.

02Children’s responses:

“Christian day-camp is a great idea because we hear about God and make new friends” (Ira)

“I enjoyed day-camp very much. I learned a lot about God, and learned songs about Him. I learned to pray” (Sofia)

“I am thankful for your help in getting closer to God. I learned by heart many Bible verses, which I can use in my life. I am thankful to God for helping us to start the summer holidays in such a great way.” (Veronika)

Pray about the pedagogy and students of this gymnasium, for the desire to seek God and read His Word.”
