For Such as These
On the 10th of January, we visited the Center for Children with Special Needs in Mytyshi. Even with the relatively better conditions in the city, there are still very few facilities dedicated to the care and education of disabled children. This center offers incredible resources and hopes to help children with all sorts of special needs including, birth defects, Down’s Syndrome, Autism, and polio, among others.
It was such a blessing to be able to tell such precious children how truly special they are in God’s eyes and that He truly loves them. Ilya shared the story of Christ’s birth and we finished by giving each of them a Christmas box and picture Bible. Afterward little Nikita, who had jumped out of his seat with excitement during the program, was personally introduced to Peter the puppet who Victor voiced.
We finished the afternoon in fellowship over tea with the directors of the center.
