Attached are a couple of clickable photos taken while members of Sts. Peter and Paul Lutheran Congregation of Vyborg were visiting Dikoni Charity Foundation in Vyborg on March 27, 2021. Teenager ministry teacher Irina Sukhareva was teaching a Bible class on the topic “The Bible as God’s Word” to children sheltered at the crisis center.
“And they were bringing children to him that he might touch them, and the disciples rebuked them. But when Jesus saw it, he was indignant and said to them, ‘Let the children come to me; do not hinder them, for to such belongs the kingdom of God. Truly, I say to you, whoever does not receive the kingdom of God like a child shall not enter it.’ And he took them in his arms and blessed them, laying his hands on them.” (Mk. 10:13-16, ESV)
