Rejoice with us as we announce the Tin Tin House is complete and was dedicated to our Lord Jesus and service for His Kingdom on Sunday August 1, 2021
We praise the Lord for His faithfulness! There is not a breath I take or a day that passes that my heart does not ache for the day I will once again be in the presence of my beautiful precious daughter – to hold her hand and gaze on her dark eyes and beautiful curls…to listen to her laugh and smell her sweet aroma. Oh how grateful I am for the saving knowledge and hope I have in and because of Jesus Christ. 1 Peter 1:5.
All because of one beautiful little princess named Avigayil Christina “TIN TIN” , our very special family in her birthplace and their diligent work and the kind gifts of many donors- this home has been completed. The building began with a dream, a few dollars and faith in the Lord.
The day I traveled to Avi’s birthplace to complete her adoption was a glorious day. The first moment I saw her was one of the best.moments of my life. Avi, Sasha and I flew out of her city and onto Manila in March of 2011. Flying over her city to leave I had a vision to build a home for children in her city. This is the fulfillment of that dream and vision.
Already in the Philippines there is another home nearly complete called the MeiMei House. There is also another home in Pakistan named the Tin Tin House. May our Lord continue providing for orphaned, trafficked, child soldiers, street children, poverty stricken and brick kiln children by growing this Tin Tin Ministry for children not just in the Philippines but around the world.
Thank you to each one who given and who has prayed. I have attached some photos of the Tin Tin House. The 2 boys on the photo/ sign with our Avi are rescued boys who became sons of our Pastor. They also have already gone home with the Lord and their stories are deeply entwined in the story of Avi and the building of the home and the growing ministry in the Southern Philippines.
There is a photo attached of the first drawing of what the house would look like and then photos of some of the progress in the past 2 and 3/4 years. Through these past months the building of the home would continue as we would have money to buy materials. Most of the work has been completed by the boys our Pastor has rescued and taken in over the years. Our Pastor and his wife have “adopted” them as their children and taught them in the ways of the Lord. We dearly love our Filipino family.
To God be the glory
1 Peter 1:13″….Put all your hope in the gracious salvation that will come to you when Jesus Christ is revealed to the world.”
