doug1 is your love in action, inside the former Soviet Union


Curious about where came from?


A report from Doug Brendel to all who support or follow our New Thing ministry in Belarus...


Thanks to your love . . .

Christmas comes on time!


It was a story straight out of Dickens....

Plot Twist #1: The fine folks who usually supply Christmas presents for the children of Belarus couldn’t provide them this year.


But then there was you.

Thanks to your generous support of New Thing, we were able to rush funding for Christmas presents.


Plot Twist #2: “The Great Kozovaya,” who heads our “Response of the Heart” team, couldn’t get up to Ushachi, because her husband was in the hospital.

But the local Russian Orthodox priest is a friend. He loves our work there.


At Kozovaya’s request, he gladly stepped in and delivered the Christmas presents.

They came ... with your love ... to children and families at the Ushachi hospital, and the shelter for abused and abandoned children across the street.


God bless all who gave to New Thing in 2015!

Thanks for journeying with us!


Much love,

Doug Brendel
