but. it. was. and a chill be given you. find knock and it shall be opened on to you. these pictures in nikolai's dembski as an army recruit were taken in the nineteen released nicholai never thought that he would become a clergyman was seventy children and yet when he returned home after two years of military service because i had no doubt that he would join the priesthood.
so what happened to him on the border with afghanistan. after graduating from some unary nicholai was appointed to a post or in the city raz some of continents of europe and asia its river forms the border their plains us policy i can see the region is subject to blazing heat in summer and severe cold in winter the famous or in the shoal is one here to start off choosing temperatures. the young clergyman and his wife came to the village of sort of posh one hundred kilometers from morn there is nothing remarkable in the village other than rows of buildings. this prompted father nicholai to plan the construction of three churches in orthodox school and
a charity house. besant home so cute by terrorists square metre of two hectares that you're. going to give them more money was needed to buy the house who sold it and then syria them. but when construction work began father nicholai didn't have enough money to complete it that's the way it was. but morocco. the project was completed the main church resembles the one in orangeburg that was torn down in soviet times the design of the orthodox school was copied from a nineteenth century diary as for the administrative building it was inspired by a picture in a book of fairy tales by olds on the pushkin. the cushions the last house across the road it is big enough to accommodate father nicholas incredibly large family of seventy children. as a young boy drowned over
a family with many children. a modest wife and enough money to buy her a nice dress. but then i married and bought a dress. at the moon. we had no kids of our own so we think so we went to an orphanage to adopt some young children. just took away the ones that were offered and we had no idea how children should be cared for we saw no occasion we doctored five kids. and as time went by we realized that we could care for them before but it didn't. take in a couple more i said to my wife but then we ended up adopting seven kids.
daddy. daddy. i was one of the several kids that they had taken then i asked him what shall i call you. he said call us father and mother if you like yes very much i responded and after that i found it easy to call their mother and father. i remember the day when father came to the orphanage he and his wife were sitting in the chair in the corridor when they came up and i thought the one wearing the black robe was a woman i mistook it for a dress i told him only and he gave me a sweet or. when i turned him over and got another suite i wasn't exactly sure who was momen who was dead. three years later father nicholas family had grown to forty seven children. on another occasion a woman from another town chanced upon a seven year old boy remembering through garbage cans he was bald. she brought him to me and asked me where i could give him shelter. to some documents and where he
was from you had no documents he was from hunting. this woman has heard about our place and was just planning to come to or inboard to visit her friend so she decided to take this boy with her and i said ok he's just one person it's hard fan really grew. the situation with neglect the children was quite desperate at the time but it would be i believe one third of the kids or those brought to me by other people yes i thought he was the lord himself i was a little child then. my granny had told me many stories about god there was an icon in our house so when i first saw my father he was like god. at that time i knew i was as young as her daughter is now father nicholai had already cheap priesthood even though he was just a young man under thirty. when he first took his new family to church the
children pick pocketed parishioners. the first to head a rose tinted picture of the children i saw them as angels when my wife and i went through a very difficult period filled with uncertainty to take them back on from that which was tough. to feel but they do we want to give them a read it thank you from my heart but the following morning the rabbit was nowhere to be seen. where did it go did it run away. get into a kong to find it but it was lying dead just outside the garden gate somebody had stabbed it as it turned out the father of the boy who killed the rabbit so abused to kill dogs eat. many of father nikolai's children did not have ideal childhoods some were removed from poor houses where they had to steal to survive others had never seen
a tooth brush or even an ample mothers would drink even though they were pregnant some of the children still have scars from beatings one daughter's head was slammed against the wall by her alcoholic biological father so their new father needed to work a miracle for them to overcome their past. that isn't so but it's hard to escape the past like yesterday for example we have a girl here i took her from a maternity home when she was just a b.b. so yesterday she stole a purse from her tutor before another girl saw the act and demanded to know what she was holding in her hands so the little one said want me to share some with the you what. i say. is. there there.
was a good job. the father nicholai hired a staff of nannies to help raise and teach the children. over time he learned how to both encourage and discipline. i always try to avoid spanking them but sometimes i simply have to even though it is their wrong thing to do. those who are nervous breakdowns usually when they misbehave. i just don't allow them to play. and join the others on one of our in many trips. in this case they just stayed home with the nanny. in the summer he takes all the children to the seaside to go sailing and sometimes it takes time to moscow. and this one shows father and me
visit in jerusalem i was eight years old here i'm three years old for this is us in america. and i remember the incredible job with the arrival of new comers here comes the girl nobody knows where she going to call them father and mother like we do father says this girl's name is he she will stay with us i fly into a rage how come she's going to live with us and call the mother and father. father nicholai knows perfectly well how to settle conflicts among the children of the well i talk to each of them separately and i tell them i understand where they're coming from i tell them i'm on their side and then the next child comes and i told them the same pop and this way conflicts will settle themselves. the family focuses on raising the children that they have but some come on their own accord maria a distant relative
a father nikolai asked to join his family the i came here when i was sixteen years old the other girls were about the same age if we had been raised in the same family there would be no conflict we simply didn't know each other i wasn't here for sixteen years they have been living together for a long time they belong to different nationalities and have managed to build a community and then i came suddenly. you know what i know the saying goes when in rome do as the romans do but she was out impose her own rules and us. she wanted to be the leader but that would not work with us. we aren't allowed to play football with the boys but she did i told her playing football with the boys was against the rules. she said are you trying to teach me she came back and began swinging her arms in front of me we had a fight about roost me. it was about kinship and who loves whom you see
mari is a relative of mine but the other girl c. but moved in with her father since childhood he loves us more than he does you remember that's what caused the quarrel with. her to succumb to the majority but i told her you did the wrong thing by trying to search yourself against all the others who put your. now maria lives in the charity house across the road from father nikolai's family. there's a pacemaker inside my chest and. i know several old women complaining about their children living off their pensions and. the rules that stretch to here if the girls can't wear trousers they have to wear scarves info then you guys house the kids live the way they like leave as if you were in the morning sometimes life gets very boring and there is no communication with the outside. the family gathers together during rehearsals they are always preparing for
a performance and. what you believe. what you want to see the break and even christmas nor the new year or how the frost won't find you like boys and girls live and study separately they meet in church at rehearsal or on the far. right. you know sometimes you see a story and it seems so you think you understand it and then a glimpse something else you hear sees some other part of it and realize everything you thought you knew you don't know i'm trying hard luck and was a big picture. mission in three cretaceous three. four charges three for a jewish three. three stooges three.

they came here and they tour and they liked me thanks changed numbers then became friends and i told dad i don't know what's going to happen next. for the priest the most important thing is that his daughter's fiance is a good man christina's husband is a policeman she was studying to become an accountant to norm berg which is where she met her spouse. but i don't my follow that i have met a guy and he's had to wanted to meet him to. go to acquainted with said that he's a good guy and we can be friends and so on this is nice chance of gay basically it was lemon who got married he. thought it was the next one. the girls love looking at wedding pictures hanging in the house as well as those of all seventy children who all call this dembski their father and mother.
the parents members to look out to the first group of children themselves but as the family grew they had to hire people to help them. the mother could not cope with washing diapers for three dozen babies and checking the homework of twenty schoolchildren but like all parents the students because try to spend all their free time together with their children. basically i was my mother's favorite shows holding me in her arms all the time can you see me in her arms in the pictures and here i am in her arms too she was holding me all the time. little by little the day to day lives of the children have changed before it was the mother who put everyone to bed now the older sisters are in charge of the task it's also their responsibility to look after the little ones. and takes four shots to cope with the family a lot of food is needed as the children can eat their way through one hundred fifty
kilograms of potatoes in just three days but the children always help in the kitchen it's very important for them to know where food comes from and an orphanage children don't even know how to make friday since they only see cook dishes. children come and get your pies. father nikolai's sometimes drops by to see if everything is fine now it is he has very little time to do so. first children got a lot of our attention we spent all the time together with them we took them to church in everywhere we went to the boy. they received lots of our attention i would be biological parents sometimes give less care to their kids than we did. but with the kids that we have now lu situation is somewhat different. perhaps
because we've grown older. at first glance it may seem that life for the children here is no different than in a good orphanage should move closer to what makes the difference is that they feel protected they don't want to leave this place. they don't ask me to pass them to another family this is the best sign that they feel protected. it's there are different from and not often even know when i married my father calls me to ask how my kids and i are doing my children treat him as their grandfather and. in addition did bought us a house which is never the case that often injures one with. he helps us just any normal parent but he's got too many children. the priest knows that one day many of them will ask him for a blessing of guidance. here i just want to know why they abandoned me.
sooner or later almost everyone of the children will wonder why they were abandoned and try to find out who their birth parents are. she was at home when i arrived. i said her maiden name and she confirmed that it was her i started making him sure remembered a certain person the name of the date she said yes so i told her i was his son but she said i wasn't what i said was that strange it's me on the look at my birthdate but she kept on saying i was not her son so that's the kind of conversation we've had with the record although she doesn't want me of course i'm not going to thrust myself on her that's what i do have parents here they are my dad and my mom that's all i need. my mother would love like she knows that i leave here and she knew that i had been
taken to protect ash. that i don't carry steen about her. she doesn't want me if shit bend in me when i look for her. i have the parents who took care of me and my childhood nils lose the little and they take care of me of a now. but they can still help me even though i am an adult and i have my own family. nowadays they all gather together for big holidays like christmas not just the children but the children's children too. it. is at least
a year in. in one. year. some of the older children who work at the monastery others have left father nicholai lets his squad choose their own path. song gilenya what do you want to be when you grow up have you ever thought about it. now. that it's time already it's time to make a choice i know that he has already made her choice be honest with have you made your choice i want to be a designer or i can painter what about you. i don't know you don't know when you will be and i don't know. what about police officer police officer.
why are you crying divied. the children know their father supports them and that miracles do happen ask and it shall be given seek and you will find knock and it shall be opened onto you. for instance an ordinary person very doubtful about building a church would saying he had no money or other resources and he wouldn't cope with the task but as for him he doesn't think he's going to do it he simply doesn't he's not afraid of anything. home. father nicholai had a parish without a church good he managed to found an orthodox town he had no children if he became the father of a very large family. i always wanted to be full of children this is my dream what used to maybe my son
nico i will be able to do it more i must raise a successor who can continue what i've been doing for conducting children. he told me that will be his successor he's always saying that to the guests. nikolai is a mother now his father often takes them along on trips like to moscow once as they were travelling he told his son what happened to him on the border with afghanistan in the one nine hundred eighty five. during a skirmish she was hit by a bullet which broke his cross but saved a. school stirred was upset because the cross was broken. so he put it on the table and went away. but later when he came back and like hell for nowhere he saw that the cross was really as good as new.
