Curious about where came from?


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


Happy Birthday, “Great Kozovaya”!

That was the BEST surprise!


I asked friends of New Thing to honor “The Great Kozovaya,” our Belarusian team leader, on her 70th birthday.

The goal: to fund laundry equipment and supplies for disabled children in the boarding school at Molotkovichi, in Kozovaya’s honor.


At her party, I had the honor of announcing the surprise.

She was thrilled!



Thank you from Kozovaya and second-in-command Lydia Danielevna to all who gave so generously!


More adventures to come!

Thanks for journeying with us!

Much love,

Doug Brendel
