A Favorite Post!
Paris at Night by Konstantin Korovin, 20th century Russian-French painter

I invite you back to a previous post, dear to my heart. I have written often about our experiences with Orphan's Tree, a ministry which supports older Russian orphan kids – once they are too old to live in the orphanage. Their plight is bleak with little education behind them, precious few resources in the present and a very foggy future before them.
Mother, by Diana Shimon, 20th century Russian-Israeli artist
It has been and continues to be amazing how Orphan's Tree slips in to do the impossible, maneuvering government regulations and scant financial store – and all done with pure hearts and clear minds and in the name of Christ.
Please read again the story of Masha in her own words. Share it with others, especially your children and grands.

Could not find out the name of this current Russian artist – but the scene feels so familiar.
Below is Emily’s poem, remembering her first trip as a teen-ager to work in a summer ministry camp in the Ukraine posted in the Orphans Tree blog last week.
Just possibly you might join us to support these forgotten kids through Orphan's Tree.
I love this painting by Nicolai Fechin, 20th century Russian artist who emigrated to the U.S. around the age of 40 and was part of the Association of Artist of Revolutionary Russia.
