This will look funny under the tree!

Greetings to all who support or follow New Thing’s work of compassion in the former USSR!

Take a look at the beautiful children in Vileyka — they have profound speech disorders, and live in a boarding school where they receive treatment and training so they can grow into a fully functioning adult life.

(I suggest you widen your browser to the max to enjoy the photos fully.)

As you’ll see in the photos, the school facilities are ancient — we want to give them a “Christmas gift” of 3 new toilets and 3 new sinks. (Gift wrap not included — ha!)

I’m grateful for the 8 households who have given generously so far to help meet this need. (You know who you are — thank you!)

I hope you can participate today too. Check out the photos and see if you’d like to be part of this.

In the meantime, thanks for journeying with us!

Much love,

Doug Brendel
