One more happy household

«О, Саша, у нас новый диванчик!»

“Oh, Sasha, we got a new couch!”

Just a quick, happy update about the Children’s Village orphanage in Belarus....

Last week I asked friends of New Thing to help provide urgently needed new sofas in Kobryn.

For every $1000 donated, the total will be matched dollar-for-dollar to provide another brand-new custom-built sofa for a household of up to 10 orphans and house-parents.

I’m happy to report that 11 generous friends gave a total of $1184.99 this week — so one more home can receive a sofa!

And others have alerted me that their donations will be coming soon, so I’m looking forward to seeing how many of the 8 total Village homes can receive sofas.

If you’d like to donate today, thanks in advance! Every $1 will become $2 thanks to the amazing Matching Challenge!

Of course I’ll keep you posted on our progress.

And of course when the sofas arrive, we’ll ask our dear friend Oleg to be on hand to shoot photos!

God bless all who care so deeply, and give so generously.

Thanks for journeying with New Thing!

More adventures to come!

Much love,

Doug Brendel
