It’s one of those times I have working on a post for days and each time I get an opportunity to actually sit down to write “my heart” and the needs – new needs come to me and even more urgent ones and I cry out to the Lord “which do I share?” “WHAT IS MOST URGENT?”
They are all urgent to those in need!
There are needs in every country where Ting Ministries has teams.
We are expanding our Tin Tin house to the top floor of the building and are needing to make improvements so children can live there. We have at least 8 children waiting to be taken from the Brick kilns into our home.
A dear Christian woman who is a member of our church was in an accident and had her arm run over by a vehicle. She needs multiple surgeries to try and save her arm ( the photos shared are not even the worst).
An old auto rickshaw needed repair so this man’s son could use it for a business to help his family provide daily food.
There are 2 families waiting for freedom from the Brick Kiln Slave labor and we have 6 more after this. After the families are freed there is continuing care needed. They have nothing and need help to live for the first few months. Many of the children of the free families have chosen to have their children continue to live at our Tin Tin home because they are not only receiving good food, spiritual food, a warm clean bed but also a good education. The needs of the monthly bills for the Tin Tin House increase with each child we take in.
The Tin Tin Care Feeding program is expanding to many new remote areas. We need help with monthly feeding so we can continue to reach more children with the Gospel alongside that food.
We still need the funds for Project Jungkung! Not a penny has been raised.
Our “BOYS” did complete the field kitchen as you can see in the video. They have gone out to call in children in need….to let the children in this region know that a meal is there for their very hungry belly. They will receive the Gospel message with their meal and love from those serving. Why do our “BOYS” serve…because one day not so long ago they too were that street child begging for their next meal! They now have a family with Ting Ministries and our Pastor and have come to know Jesus Christ as their Lord and Savior and want to go do likewise!
We have one of our “BOYS” in grave need. We need to raise $1,500 to hire a lawyer to free him from a horrible overcrowded prison that is 17 hours by land and then 3 by boat away from where our Tin Tin House is located. The government moved him due to even more overcrowding in the local prison. That prison had 27 men/boys in a cell where it can hold 10. His crime…being in the wrong place at the wrong time. He needs a good lawyer for his hearing in early February.
These are just the needs from the past 3 days and just a small fraction of what I hold in my heart and prayers everyday.
Funds are needed for continued ministry in Russia, Indonesia, South Asia and Romania.
Included in the photos are our 3 new rescues…so meet Apple and Samuel and Oswald. 6 of our pups leave for their new lives in the UK and more lives will be changed by the compassion and love given to the voiceless.
I will end this long post (many who gave up half way through will not get the blessing of this rescue story) with the most amazing rescue story especially in a country where very few value the lives of the least and lowest. Our dear director happened to have to go to Bucharest to purchase a new test that each puppy must have before entry into the UK. She had to go immediately because the puppies were set to leave in days and this test just became needed and without it they would miss the Happy Bus” …potentially their only chance at a new life. While on the dark streets she sent me a photo of an old pup in need. I began to pray. She next sends a photo after having been able to rescue this old girl. This girl we named Ella Mae and she was so relieved to get in the car and leave the streets. Fast forward to the next day…our director hears through her contacts that a family in Bucharest lost their old girl. Guess who had their missing baby!! We did! The next photos I received were Ella Mae being reunited with her family. Maybe this happens often here in the US but not in Romania! What a miracle to be in the RIGHT PLACE AT THE RIGHT TIME to reunite the old soul with her grieving family.
God is moving and working.
