Doctors and lawyers?

Updated: Sep 6, 2019

“The Great Kozovaya” keeps amazing me.

This humble woman (we call her “The Great” as a joke) has pushed hard to feed the homeless of Minsk at our “soup kitchen” headed by Pastor Sasha.

But now, she’s arranged for lawyers to volunteer free advice for our homeless friends.

Now, finally, they can get their documents fixed, housing situated, employment arranged, and more.

Kozovaya and the team have also equipped a medical room, where a volunteer doctor offers medical help.

All of this without asking us for a penny of support.

I’m just astounded at the dedication, the passion, of our “Response of the Heart” team in Belarus.

Your support of New Thing keeps them going!

God bless all who give!

And thank you for journeying with us!

Much love,

Doug Brendel

P.S. We’re still hoping to provide a shower, cribs, high chairs, and other help at the hospital in Volozhin.

I’ll bring you an update on our progress next week.
