New Thing is your love in action, inside the former Soviet Union


Curious about where NewThing.net came from?



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


It’s not about some car...

It’s about some kids


Your heart hurts, to learn of a child mistreated, abused ... neglected, abandoned ... endangered in their own home.

But in the town of Zhdanivichi, outside Minsk, your heart also comes to the rescue.


Friends of New Thing have the joy of providing aid to the children’s shelter here, through our “Response of the Heart” team.


These days, we hope to repair a donated vehicle.

Director Elena and her workers will be able to care for the children more ably than ever before.


I like this young man’s T-shirt message: Go all in. I hope we do, this week.

God bless all who love the children by giving.


More adventures to come!

Thanks for journeying with us!


Much love,

Doug Brendel
