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...


The Gift of

Empty Space?


We’ve known for years that the orphans are well loved.


We’ve been visiting the “Children’s Village” for years, here at Kobryn, Belarus, near the Polish border.


But we’ve also known ... they urgently need closets.

Yes, closets. That empty space we fill up with our stuff.


Now, generous friends, “giving without being asked,” have provided brand-new closet space for the orphans.

The gear was delivered last month ­— to great rejoicing!


Soon we hope to have photos of the children, too, as they enjoy their new storage spaces.

God bless all who give!


More adventures to come!

Thanks for journeying with us!


Much love,

Doug Brendel
