The best 390 seconds of the year

Merry Christmas!

I just got this 6-1/2 minute video from the Children’s Village in Kobryn, Belarus.

This is the multi-home center for orphans that we have the privilege of supporting every year.

Generous friends of New Thing provide “Life Starter Kits” for each orphan as they “age out” of the system and set out on their own.

They celebrated the Village’s 25-year anniversary a few weeks ago, and created this video themselves.

(They translated the subtitles into English themselves too — which is part of the charm, I think!)

I think you’ll find this is worth 6 minutes of your time, during this holiday season.

You can celebrate with them, knowing that your connection to New Thing is helping these kids, as well as the workers committed to their care.

Thank you for everything you’ve meant to folks in need in the former USSR this year ... and may you have a beautiful Christmas week!

Much love,

Doug Brendel
