10 years ago...

The photo, by our dear friend Oleg Yarovenko, was taken almost exactly 10 years ago.

The children were in the shelter for abused and abandoned children at Zhodino, Belarus.

Over a decade, generous friends of New Thing completely repaired the facilities.

Today there’s a commercial kitchen, a laundry, comfortable beds, a counseling area.

Maybe most important, there’s an after-school center for at-risk children, to keep kids out of the shelter.

As part of our New Thing family, you’ve been doing good things for a very long time.

This is just a word of thanks for the difference you’ve made in the lives of these 6 kids...

...and thousands of others, over the years.

More adventures to come!

Thanks for journeying with us.

Much love,

Doug Brendel
