- Placement of children into famillies
The state can overcome the problem of child abandonment!!! But one of conditions for this is family as an instrument, development of family placement forms rather than a system of institutional care for children
On December 13 of this year, “My Home” has organized a series of workshops for parents on current issues in education and upbringing. Alexander Vyalov was the author and presenter, he’s also a teacher, teacher-trainer, founder of private Christian school “The beginning of wisdom”, the pastor of “Living Hope” church, the author of the book “The pundits of God” and video tutorials “The Bible in experiments” on You Tube.
With the onset of cold weather Ukrainian army is trying to insulate its positions. With this purpose “My Home” handed 6 cubes of wooden boards to the soldiers for insulation of dugouts.
We want the cold of war to end so much and the warmth of God’s love to melt the hearts of all the participants of military activities …
CF “My Home” together with the company “I’M FAMILY” had a family weekend for our parents from October 24 till October 26. It was a time of rest, romance, fun, games, and a bit of training. A romantic candlelight dinner became the culmination of the weekend and the most touching and sensual event was the ceremony of marriage covenant renewal… Everything can not be described in words… but some of the participants tried to do it.
«We have reconsidered our relationship in many aspects, learned a lot of valuable information for us personally and for our family in general. We’d like to see more families find out what family happiness is, to do this you need to go on a family weekend. Come and you will not regret it»
Aleksandr and Svetlana
«My wife and I learned a lot of useful information. We’ve been married for 20 years, but we always had questions we didn’t know how to solve. But now we know the reasons and methods to solve those questions, practical exercises strengthened our knowledge. Also it was a good rest for us»
Nikolai and Lyudmila
«When we came here, we had questions. We were looking for answers and were confident that God will answer us. Leaving our everyday routine, we heard God; all the questions where we had flaws were discussed. Meetings like this are important for us, because they help to renew our relationship, you can look at your second half in a new way and get to know each other again. After returning home, we will do many things differently. Many thanks to all the organizers of this project»
