Ministry is very busy and the needs in every country continue daily regardless of our Christmas holiday or circumstances here in the USA. So many around the world need both food for the soul and food for the physical body. So many need love and someone to care. Any of the Team Ting Ministries around the world could use your help. We so appreciate every penny and every prayer.
” The Lord of Heaven’s armies is here among us. The God of Israel is our strength.”

Below are photos from some of ministry happening just in the past days – some even from just today!
Just to mention a few that might touch your heart:
In Russia we were able to bless a special needs orphanage with gifts. We have also been able to help an animal rescue in Russia.
In the Philippines the poorest of the poor children were given “chicken”, rice and noodles. This is an extravagant meal for these children and they prayed to taste chicken soon. God answered their innocent prayers. They were also given a gift and vitamins. They heard the Gospel.
In Romania on the way to get a Christmas tree- a momma and her 3 sick puppies were rescued and taken back home instead of a tree. Five rescued dogs safely made it to the UK in time to be with their forever families for Christmas. The transport drivers sent word they needed prayer to make it back to Romania because the Eurotunnel had been suddenly shut down. They have now made it back to Romania.
In Pakistan our Pastor has been helping a young man who needs prosthetics for both legs and a generous donor has paid for both prosthetics. We have many other medical needs in Pakistan that are urgent. A little boy desperately needs surgery for some serious issues and needs to go to the better hospital. Our Pastor recently held Christmas celebrations in the Sunday School at the brick kiln and also at his church. There are many basic needs that must be met for the brick kiln children.
In Ukraine the needs continue to aging out orphans and pastor Misha needs prayers for healing.
In South Asia the feeding and basic care of the orphaned children is currently a huge need and the mission workers and their family needs as they travel in the jungle to share the Gospel to tribal groups.
In Indonesia our young and firm in her faith missionary is working to reach 100 families with food packs. We are currently $500 short of the need to reach every family she has listed. If more is raised than this goal then more families can be reached.
In the USA prayers are needed for our family as one of our treasured daughters needed an emergency surgery and needs the Lord’s healing touch to be completely restored to health. Thank you to all prayer warriors!
Thank you for giving of your time to pray and thank you to everyone who as given in the past. We are so thankful for Team Ting supporters. May God bless you and may He give you a hunger for His Word in 2021!
A Special Message from Stephanie, co-director of Ting Ministries
“My heart is full and aching at the same time! Thank you to Ting Ministries supporters….
Tin Tin’s House is soon a dream made a reality. All because of one amazing precious girl who the world would have discarded. She will always be my princess and special treasure. This is so bitter sweet and I am so thankful for my faith in Jesus Christ because without that nothing would make sense. Even so…the house is built with love and tears! Thank you!”
Update: November 21, 2020 (Appeared on Social Media)
We have a huge announcement to share! We are blessed to report that our 2020 Christmas project, Tin Tin’s House, has been FULLY FUNDED by a generous donor!
This news comes just days after we shared this goal with you, our supporters! Tin Tin’s house is named after Avigayil Christina “Tin Tin” Carpenter, the adopted Filipina daughter of Brian and Stephanie, the founders and co-directors of Ting Ministries. Tin Tin’s house has been a dream of Stephane’s for two years and she is so thankful that her prayers for this home have been answered!
This home will allow our pastor in the Philippines to take in 10+ orphans and street children who are need of shelter and counseling. They will experience the love of a family and most importantly, of Jesus Christ.
When we have pictures of the completed home, we will share them joyfully with you! Until then, thank you for your support – and be on the lookout for our upcoming Christmas catalogue, with gift ideas that will benefit Ting Ministries’ partners around the world!
Thank you very much and to God be the Glory!

Dear friends of Ting Ministries,
We at Ting Ministries in the US and around the world would like to thank you for your faithful support. Though these past months have held unexpected circumstances for us all, your support has blessed us as it has allowed ministry to continue in these difficult times. Recently, our partners in the Philippines have been serving families devastated by the typhoons which pummeled the entirety of the Philippines last week. Yesterday, they collected a special offering for families who lost children in other cities. Through the support of Ting Ministries donors, families also received food and were able to be transferred to a small temporary shelter. We and our pastor’s family in the Philippines were blessed by the support received in the face of this emergency situation. Many children have been left without homes or resources following the horrific flooding.
This week, Pastor John* (not real name) bought a small, dilapidated building close to their own home and materials to make conditions livable for 4 orphans which they will take in. He also applied for a government clearance to bring more homeless kids to the local children’s center. Now, it is our deepest desire at Ting Ministries, to complete Tin Tin’s House. The dream of Tin Tin’s House began after Avigayil “Tin Tin,” the beloved daughter of Brian and Stephanie (co-directors and founders of Ting Ministries) who was adopted from the Philippines, went home to Jesus two years ago.
Tin Tin’s house will be equipped to provide a home to more than 10 children. They will receive meals, education, counseling and learn about Jesus through Pastor John and his family. This on-going project is in addition to the small structure that Pastor John just bought this week. Over the past couple years, you have heard us often share about Tin Tin’s home and seen updates from the Philippines. Pastor John and his family have been working tirelessly – they completed much construction of the house themselves, never quitting, even when funds slowed or stopped. Now, we are so close to seeing the dream be realized!
This year, we are praying and aiming for Tin Tin’s House to be completed by Christmas! $5,000 is all that is needed to complete this project – and with the dire situation facing so many families affected by flooding, the need has never been greater!
Please, will you help us to make Christmas 2020 unforgettable for our ministry partners?! This project is so near and dear to Stephanie’s heart – it would be the best Christmas present ever for her and children in-need!
To help us reach our goal, you may give:

Pastor John* (name changed for protection) wrote to us with devastating news. He says:
“Pray for my home place. 2 bombs exploded yesterday killed 14 lives and wounded 28. Others are children. We are sending our aid soon. Pray for comfort and peace. Pray also for our team there. We are serving some of the poor kids there now.”
A terrorist group, ABU SAYAF, linked to Al Queda are responsible for the attack which killed and wounded 40+ innocent people, including the parents of the two children pictured. Our Ting Ministries team is on the ground now, serving and helping respond to the emergency. We would like to raise an emergency campaign to send as many funds as we can directly to our partners to equip them to serve in the aftermath of this terrible event.
Please consider a donation to help with this emergency need! Every little bit helps and is so appreciated! 100% of your gift will go directly to our ministry partners and will be used for the specified need! Thank you and God Bless You!
Praise in Pakistan: Yasim’s Prosthetic is Fully Funded!
We’d like to send a special thank you to the Ting Minisistries’ supporter who made this possible! We are praising the Lord for another example of his faithful provision and are so blessed to know that Yasim* will receive the estimated cost for his prosthetic! We can’t wait for him to hear the news! A prosthetic will be life-changing, enabling him to work again. What an answer to prayer, for the Team Ting family, in Pakistan and the US!
Psalm 111:1-4: “Praise the Lord! I will thank the Lord with all my heart as I meet with his godly people. How amazing are the deeds of the Lord! All who delight in him should ponder them. Everything he does reveals his glory and majesty. His righteousness never fails. He causes us to remember his wonderful works. How gracious and merciful is our Lord!”

Dear friends, if you received our latest newsletter and addendum, you likely saw two needs we shared with you about a 23-year old amputee and a young girl in need treatment for a broken femur. We are blessed to be able to tell you that Liyana* (not real name, pictured below) has received the estimated funds needed for her femur to be treated by a doctor! Liyana is the daughter of a poor Christian family and she must work in a kiln with her parents. An accident at work left her unable to bear weight on her leg for FOUR years! Can you even imagine? We are praising God for His provision and we hope that Liyana will be able to receive the care she needs for her leg to heal properly!
In our summer newsletter, we also told you about Yasim* (not real name) who survived an automatic rickshaw collission but lost his leg as a result of the accident. Yasim needs a prosthetic leg at an estimated cost of $720. He would be so grateful to receive a prosthetic as it would enable him to be able to work again!
Would you prayerfully consider a financial gift to help Yasim, just as we were able to bless Liyana? We couldn’t continue ministry without our supporters! Thank you for your prayers and continued support – they are truly life-sustaining and making a difference around the world!
100% of your financial gift will go directly to ministry partners who are helping Yasim in-country!
