Weekly Orphan Outreach:
Our passion is to reach orphan teens, making relationships, building trust and sharing our lives with them. We spread the gospel and study the bible with many of them in creative ways.
We have been praying to expand this work through Russian churches, building teams of volunteers to help orphan kids to know our loving God, His commandments and blessings in Jesus Christ. I (Yan) also use my barber skills and eight years of studies in soccer school in the orphanages so that helps me to find new ways to get teens to open up.
Special events and birthdays:
What would stay in orphan’ hearts? Perhaps the fact that they are loved and someone rejoices with them on this special day.
New Start for Orphan Graduates:
We have several young mothers as well that we came alongside to mentor and encourage, teaching them life skills. Ministering as a couple we have a great opportunity to show them how to live their lives differently then they have experienced in their dysfunctional families.
We share with them what God has done for us and how He has been changing our lives and relationships.
Summer Camps and Mission teams:
Nadya also works with ladies that she trains throughout the year to help them with their summer camp outreaches. She also volunteers to work in different camps as a creative director and teacher of the children.
Creative workshop seminars:
We travel to churches outside of the city that want to host theses events with women from their region. Nadya coaches and mentors the leaders of these outlying churches on how to set up the event effectively, speaks and teaches workshops at these events.
I work with Nadya to assist her with the seminars and coordinate with pastors and volunteers to make special preparations before and during the seminar.
