As we grieve ... Good news

As we continue to grieve the loss of “The Great Kozovaya,” I bring you this photo of the little church in her home village, near the Russian border.

She single-handedly raised the money and marshaled the labor to raise up this building ... and it was here that her body was laid to rest.

Meanwhile, friends gave generously to help us make the goal so we can provide Life Starter Kits for all 11 of the orphans graduating from the Children’s Village at Kobryn this spring.

Thank you, from my heart, to the 11 households who responded with such compassion.

The work goes on!

I’ll keep you posted.

Thanks for journeying with us.

Much love,

Doug Brendel
