A “no matter what” kind of love

Updated: Sep 6, 2019

Many, many blessings in this country of ours.

Many I fail to take note of, most days.

But when I’m in Belarus, it hits home for me.

An old-fashioned word comes to mind:


We have bounty.

Compared to the rest of the world, we have lots and lots.

Tomorrow, I’m going to be grateful for our bounty.

And I will absolutely be grateful for friends like you, who share.

Because not everybody has bounty.

Here’s the final photo report from my November visit to Belarus.

I think the children and youth at Dzerzhinsk will make you smile!

Please widen your browser to enjoy the photos fully.

Thanks for journeying with us!

Happy Thanksgiving!

Much love,

Doug Brendel
