The kids say “Спасибо!” — in English!

Remember the boarding school at Zelva, Belarus, near the Polish border?

It's "home" to 120 children with medical vulnerabilities, where nearly 80 workers provide for their care 24/7.

(You can look back, if you'd like, at my photo report from last August ... and here are the photos from my visit to Zelva back in 2016.)

Friends giving generously to New Thing have now enabled us to replace some of the school's ancient medical equipment, and the kids wanted to say "Thank you"....

So they made a big poster — in English! — and sent us these photos.

This is why I am so grateful to everyone who gives to New Thing ... because you make moments like this possible!

Thanks for journeying with us!

Much love,

Doug Brendel
