UPDATE on Russia Medical Need: May 28, 2021 FULLY FUNDED!
We would like to send a big thank you (спасибо огромное!) to everyone who gave towards the cost of my dad’s medical needs! Thanks to some generous supporters, this week we were able to send my family the funds needed for the wound vacuum and related materials! My dad will be able to receive his device soon!
Please keep my family in your prayers – for healing, wisdom and comfort! We were so blessed to meet this need through Ting Ministries and both my families were so thankful!

Dear friends, this is Sasha coming to you with an urgent plea for fundraising! My step-dad in Russia has been suffering with severe leg pain, several (unsuccessful) surgeries and is now in need of a wound-vacuum and bandage sets, costing a total of $1,600! Much like our ministry partners in the Philippines experienced, doctors will not offer the necessary treatment until it is paid for. My family is afraid that without the wound vac, my dad will pass away! To many families in Russia, such a sum of money would be an unthinkable cost – but we at Ting Ministries know that nothing is impossible with God! Losing my dad would be devastating to me and my family, along with their farm and livelihood. My birth family has carried out ministry in Russia, serving special-needs children, animal rescue and family’s in-need since we found one another. How incredibly special it would be for the Ting Ministries family of supporters to support my family in their time of need, both for them, myself and my adoptive family.
So, if you can give even $5 – I humbly urge you to SHARE this post! You will be an answer to prayer and living example of Jesus Christ. To Give:
YOU are an answer to these children’s prayers! Thank you to those who have given – we are so pleased to announce we have REACHED our funding goal to purchase a SURPRISE badminton set! Children at the home in South Asia will LOVE their new gift! Here they are pictured praying together for Ting Ministries. Every little bit makes a difference in the end and we are so thankful for each person who has made this goal reality! May the Lord bless you and keep you! With all our love and gratitude, Ting Ministries – USA and South Asia
Update 3: Just $145 to go until we reach our goal and can purchase a badminton set for the children at the Ting Ministries’ home in South Asia! We are so close friends! Thank you to those who have given. Can you help us reach our goal by the end of the week?! We at Ting Ministries are so excited!

Just $245 more needed! Surprise children in South Asia (location undisclosed for protection) with a badminton set! Thank you to the first donor for this special surprise! Pictured below are children in South Asia who were excited to receive soap this past Christmas. How much more thrilled would they be to receive such an exciting gift? Dear friends, how much do we long to give good gifts to our children? These children have very few people who care for them. In letters, children will call their sponsor families “mom” and “dad.” Can you give 5 dollars to bless a child in poverty with a gift?
Our ministry partners have written to us, explaining how they would like to bless the children with a badminton set. Not only will this gift be a special surprise – but it will promote group learning, teamwork and exercise as well as fun!
Dear friends – these are the children at our ministry’s children’s home in South Asia* (country undisclosed for protection of ministry partners.) In the picture below, they are eating lunch together! We would like to surprise the children with a badminton set!
Sponsors often ask us “Can I send my sponsor child a gift?” While mailing things overseas presents many difficulties and we do not want to single children out or provoke jealousy or sadness among children who have sponsors and those currently waiting for sponsors, this is a perfect opportunity to show these precious children you are thinking of them! Our ministry partners have told us how much the children play outside and would love to play badminton – so, please consider helping us purchase a badminton set for them to play together!
These children have little to call their own, even sleeping on dirt floors with blankets provided by Ting Ministries and thankful for soap at Christmastime. They will be so thankful for this gift! To them, a badminton set is an amazing gift!
The $2,000 needed for surgery has been raised and the stories behind many that gave are breathtakingly beautiful. God knows each one who gave and why and we pray God answers each prayer and need of each family/person who blessed Baby Boy and his family.
Ting Ministries needs your help.
A newborn baby in the Philippines needs medical care and surgery. We are raising $2,000 to help this precious baby boy receive the care he needs immediately. Our pastor is working directly with the baby and his family.
This is near and dear to my heart. Our Avigayil (Tin Tin) had club feet when we adopted her from the Philippines.
She needed extensive procedures/surgery to correct her feet.
This baby’s family has chosen to keep him and not place him in an orphanage. Many families have no means to have necessary medical care for their children and therefore many end up being placed in orphanages. Many of these parents do not want to give up their children but see no other solution.
Baby boy’s family has chosen to reach out to our pastor for help. We are committed to helping them. Can you help us? Every life is precious.
If you would like to help Baby Boy, you may send financial gifts:
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!
