The sound of love


In this season of strife, with all its anger and fear, I hope you are well.

And I invite you to do a good deed.

The hearing-impaired children of Babruisk, Belarus, need our help.

You can visit them by taking a look at the photo report I posted back in January.

The workers at this boarding school help the kids learn skills so they’ll be able to function as adults.

Sewing is a crucial skill — but their sewing machines are old and broken-down.

Learning is slow and awkward because only 2 machines still work.

I hope we can provide new machines. It will take a total of $770.

10 friends giving $77 each — or 20 friends giving $38.50 — would nail it.

But there’s another, bigger problem.

It’s summer now, but these kids will be freezing, come winter — because the windows of the boarding school are so old and rotten.

To replace a window will take $360.

I hope, before summer is over, we can provide for 4 windows — so they can be installed before it gets cold.

10 friends giving $144 each — or 20 friends giving $72 — would cover it.

I know it’s a lot of money — $1440 for windows, and $770 for sewing machines ... a total of $2210.

But if every friend of New Thing will do whatever they can, I think we can get there.

Would you please consider helping, with a gift today?

Thank you for being a part of this, however you’re able to.

I look forward to hearing from you!

Much love,

Doug Brendel
