An encouraging update from Pastor “James” in South Asia:
Note: Names and pictures of pastors or others are not shared for their protection and safety. God is good all the time, all the time God is so good. We really praise God for His abundantly blessings giving to us and for His guidance in the ministry.
We visited villages for sharing the gospel to those who have never heard about the word of God. Some people had joined at the sharing event and receptive for gospel and five people were accepted Jesus Christ as their Lord and personal Savior. Those who have accepted Christ they invited us again to go to their villages. We are praying to go in their villages again and sharing the gospel. Please join us in prayer for those villages to know who is Lord of lords and King of kings.
The house churches are doing fine with their ministry activities and daily lives. They are leading by turns in their ministry activities such as home visit, prayer meeting, bible studies.We are praying we will be able to visit those churches who still need more for teaching, so we may go and spend more time with them for teaching and practices.
Recently, we prayed for four women and one child. Two of them are healed from their sicknesses in the name of Jesus of Nazareth! Six believers were baptized!
We also had one day church leadership seminar for men and women. The theme was: “Follow my example, as I follow the example of Christ” (1 Cor 11:1). 25 leaders were present. The seminar went well. The leaders were learned & experienced many things on seminar which they said that they can do in our respective fields. Please pray for them that they may teach in their villages what they have learned from the seminar.
At the children’s home, everyone is doing fine with their studies. They are all growing day by day in their learning and daily lives. They are experiencing about the love of God’s. We praise God for providing for a home & schooling. We thank you so much for what you have been doing for us and His Kingdom.

Theresa* from South Asia shares her testimony, after attending an evangelism event arranged by Ting Ministries’ team members. (*Not real name).
“We are all in Buddhist before. My husband had died 5 years ago. I have fours and two daughters. They all are married. I am living to my youngest son’s house. I take care of my niece, nephew and help in their house works right now. My sons and daughters have already accepted Christ about 2 years ago. My sons and daughters were most of the time shared me about God’s love and eternal life. But I never believe and accept it. Since we were born from Buddhist family and my husband also very devoted in his belief. We so much believe and rely on superstitions.
Since then I realized that I am a sinner, only Jesus Christ can save us and He is the only way to enter the Kingdom of God. After the end of the event, I go back to my house and I was shared how of how my heart changes.
The evangelist team organized an evangelism program at our village in last month. The evangelist team all of invited us to join at the event. We all the villagers have joined at the evangelism. The evangelist team had started with prayer, praise and worship songs then they started sharing the gospel. At the evangelism program, the topic was “How to enter the Kingdom of God and salvation”. When the Pastor was shared about God, His creation, fall of man, sin and salvation. His message was so powerful and touched in my heart and my body was trembling that time. Especially John 14: 6. “I am the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me”. This verse was really touched in my heart and through this, I completely changed my hearts during the event. Besides, not only this verse, but also in other verses and the Pastor’s message. Since then I realized that I am a sinner, only Jesus Christ can save us and He is the only way to enter the Kingdom of God. After the end of the event, I go back to my house and I was shared how of my heart changes to my son’s family. My son’s family was welcoming for my changed life. They said to me when we have shared you about the word of God, you didn’t want to listen but now you listen and accepted it. This is perfect timing to know Him. We no longer are divided for faith in our family and now we are one family in Christ in our house. Praise the Lord!!!
I thank to the Lord and the evangelism team for sharing us great good news and giving me a new life. Also thanks again to Jesus’ for giving His blood for saving us from our sin. Now I am joining at bible study, prayer meeting, sharing the gospel to the neighbors and home visits. I really enjoyed those activities which has given me peace, joyful heart, love, compassion, and sympathy to others. Please pray for my health and His blessings.
Thank you so very much.

Memo: Pillow & Blanket Challenge
The Widow and Her Two Mites: “Jesus sat down opposite the place where the offerings were put and watched the crowd putting their money into the temple treasury. Many rich people threw in large amounts. But a poor widow came and put in two very small copper coins, worth only a few cents.
Calling his disciples to him, Jesus said, ‘Truly I tell you, this poor widow has put more into the treasury than all the others. They all gave out of their wealth; but she, out of her poverty, put in everything—all she had to live on.'” Mark 12:41-44
