We are the Carpenter family. We have daughters adopted from all around the world! Brian and Stephanie Carpenter are the founders and directors of Ting Ministries – a nonprofit ministry. We are passionate about caring for “The Least of These” and being a Voice for the Voiceless, according to Proverbs 31:8-9.
Today, Ting Ministries works in the Indonesia, the Philippines, Pakistan, Romania, Russia, South Asia and the United States.
Most of our daughters have some type of special need – some mild and some more severe – but they are all our treasured daughters. Their special needs include: deafness, blindness, post traumatic stress disorder, Cerebral Palsy, spastic quadriplegia, Spina bifida, feeding tubes, epilepsy/seizure disorder, cochlear implant, club feet and other orthopedic issues, failure-to-thrive, global developmental delay, institutionalization etc.
Ting Ministries got its name from the Carpenters’ daughter Ellianna, whose Taiwanese name is Ya-Ting which means “to listen with your heart.” Avigayil “TinTin” is adopted from the Philippines and her orphanage and region is where Ting Ministries began ministry work in 2009.
