Not a Mistake, but Hidden Treasure

Philippians 4:4 – August 2021

Ting Ministries Friends,
Please take a look at the photo below. This wall hanging was taken off the store display and hidden in a corner to send back as soon as the mistake was noticed. Do you see the mistake? Everyone saw this misspelling as a mistake – except me. This picture to me is a treasure. I would have paid double for this treasure if that is what it would have cost for me to take this treasure home.
You see, this “mistake” is a hidden treasure. This picture is an allegory of my precious Avi. What most saw as a “mistake” (a child born from a rape; with multiple, severe special needs; never progressing past a 6-month developmental age) I saw as a rare and precious jewel… a life with more meaning and purpose than anyone could imagine except for our Lord who gave this gift of Avi to me…to us. He gave her her to me for a time…Not a long enough time and with every breath, I long to hear her sweet giggle, touch her soft beautiful fingers and hold her in my arms.
So you see, this discarded picture to me is a treasure…a very present reminder that my Lord sees my tears and hears my heart. My heart’s cry is for each story, each life, each soul brought into my view by each of Ting Ministries’ pastors and partners.
Each life – Each child – Each soul matters.
You can help us at Ting Ministries reach 1 at a time. You can help us change 1 life at a time and save 1 soul at a time. Each one is a precious, hidden treasure waiting to be seen – sometimes tucked in a corner out of view of everyone – except our Lord. He sees, He hears, and He moves.
Please help Ting Ministries and our teams overseas reach one soul at a time. See our website: www.tingministries.com for current projects. You can see some of the fruit of your gifts….such as the beautiful, completed Tin Tin House in the Philippines and the continued rescue of the Brick Kiln children and families.
Our overseas teams are at work in: Indonesia, Pakistan, South Asia, the Philippines, Russia, Romania, and Ukraine. Please keep Ting Ministries in your prayers.
We would love to share about ministry at your church, small group or more! Each gift is tax deductible.

Grand Opening of the Tin Tin House in the Philippines!

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.”

UPDATE – GOAL MET! MEDICAL NEED IN PHILIPPINES!

Our ministry partner from the Philippines is home from the hospital, having received her medical treatment! This was all made possible by YOU our generous supporters! All it takes a little to make a HUGE difference! Thank you so much – from our Team Ting family here and in the Philippines
Pictured: Ministry partners baptizing new believers in Jesus Christ! Our dear friend who received treatment is pictured far right, hands raised.

**2nd Update** We need just $379 yet! Thank you to those who have given – what a blessing to us and our Filipino family! Please continue to share!

*Update* $500 raised! Can we reach out goal of $1000 today?! Thank you to all who have given and shared! Please share this update!

The wife of our dear brother in Christ from the Philippines is very sick – potentially a matter of life or death! Her husband, our dear pastor in the Philippines, says: “Her lungs is affected and needs to be induced but it quite expensive. That’s why she is just taking an antibiotic but [healing] takes longer. Remdisivir shots here will cost about $479. Per vial. She needs at least 2 vials for treatment. We are praying…”
Please, friends of Ting Ministries, can you help raise $1,000 for this life-saving treatment?! These dear friends of ours knew our daughter Avi while in the Philippines and it is through them Ting Ministries has grown and changed countless lives, including numerous street children who call our friends “Mom” and “Dad.” Ministry would not be possible without them.
Here in the United States, we may complain about our healthcare, but we have access to such treatments in emergencies. In these situations, doctors in the United States would treat you immediately to save your life…but in the Philippines, you need to pay completely before receiving treatment! Our hearts are breaking with our Filipino family in Christ and we are asking the Lord for healing and financial provision for the treatment which can bring about the healing.
If you could give, even 5 dollars, please don’t wait! You can send a gift:
1. Online: www.paypal.me/Tingministries (instant!)
2. By check: Ting Ministries, 29 East Poplar Street, Lebanon, PA 17042
Even if you are not able to give – please SHARE this post to spread the word and lift prayers for our family in the Philippines! With all our love and gratitude, Ting Ministries ❤

Your prayers and help would be so appreciated.
Romania- We have 11 dogs/puppies rescued from the cold streets that need to be spayed.
Indonesia- We have 2 older widows who need help with rent and food.
Pakistan-Outreach for brick kiln families for flour sacks
Indonesia- the continuous need for food for the orphanage children

Please continue to pray for our team/partners in each of these countries and also Russia and Ukraine.

Special Birthday Message: A Place My Heart Never Left

Written by: Stephanie Carpenter, co-founder and co-director of Ting Ministries
There is a place my heart never left. When we adopted our Avigayil “Avi / Tin Tin” my heart fell in love with the Philippines and our brothers and sisters.
Ministry through Ting Ministries began in the Philippines all because of her tiny beautiful life. Saturday the 27th is her 14th Birthday. The grief of missing her never ends. She went home with Jesus 2 years and 15 weeks ago. I choose to cling to the truth of God’s Word.
Isaiah 55:8-13
“My thoughts are nothing like your thoughts,” says the Lord.
“And my ways are far beyond anything you could imagine.
For just as the heavens are higher than the earth,
so my ways are higher than your ways
and my thoughts higher than your thoughts.
“The rain and snow come down from the heavens
and stay on the ground to water the earth.
They cause the grain to grow,
producing seed for the farmer
and bread for the hungry.
It is the same with my word.
I send it out, and it always produces fruit.
It will accomplish all I want it to,
and it will prosper everywhere I send it.
You will live in joy and peace.
The mountains and hills will burst into song,
and the trees of the field will clap their hands!
Where once there were thorns, cypress trees will grow.
Where nettles grew, myrtles will sprout up.
These events will bring great honor to the Lord’s name;
they will be an everlasting sign of his power and love.”
To celebrate her life our faithful team/pastor/brothers and sisters in the Southern Philippines are planning an outreach to the city to feed the homeless, orphaned and needy for Avi/Tin Tin’s Birthday.
Please help us celebrate the life of our Princess by giving to other needy children. The children will receive nourishment for their bodies and also their souls. They will learn about Jesus and the Truth of His Word.
Happy Birthday Princess Avigayil Christina “Tin Tin”.
