Belarus - My Connection
Long time friends, Doug & Kristina Brendel became involved with Belarus after the nuclear explosion at Chernobyl 1986. Kristina was hired to photograph the damage for an American charitable organization after they discovered that the Soviet government refused to help its own people (over 25% of the country was destroyed and uninhabitable).
With their homes, livestock, and schools destroyed, these people who were seriously ill had nowhere to go. The Brendels committed to finding a way to bring ongoing help and hope to these resilient hard working people. Over time I heard the stories about Belarus and helped a bit here and there. After joining MSW I was given the opportunity to make my first trip in 2011. I know God connected me with the Brendels all those years ago for this present time and purpose.
We strive to be the hands and feet of Jesus and to leave a footprint of justice and mercy wherever we go. Updates for our current projects will be emailed to our friends periodically and posted in the Belarus Bits Blog. We would love to keep you informed, please SIGN UP for Belarus updates so you won't ever miss your opportunity to pray, give and rejoice with us as we promote God's love in this region of the world.
