Toys for Children of the Jolo Fire

26,000 indviduals were recently affected by the devastating Jolo fires in the Philippines. Our team in the Philippines has been on the ground with victims of the fire for the last couple weeks. They are praising the Lord for His provision of 2,800 relief items for victims.

We are looking for Ting Ministries partners who feel led to help raise $500 USD to provide toys for the children affected by the fires. Children are especially affected by such a traumatic event, and something as simple as a toy can be a source of “normalcy” and healing. Not only does this allow our team to provide tangible aid, but it is also an opportunity to share the love of Jesus Christ. To give a gift to a child in need: visit www.paypal.me/Tingministries OR send a check to our mailing address: Ting Ministries, 29 East Poplar Street, Lebanon, PA 17042

Safiya Plans to be a Doctor: Can You Help Make it Possible?

 
Pictured: Safiya’s family 
 
Dear Friends – We have an update on our TM Pakistani family! We heard from our partners that Safiya, the oldest daughter of the TM family waiting for a sponsor, wants to go to university to become a doctor!  This is not a light decision on her part or on ours; she has shown the determination to stay with the program and succeed.Before her father’s death, Safiya was a top student in her school, receiving all A’s in her classes. After our partners’ first visit where she told us she wanted to go to university, she went to different schools and gathered information about possible programs. 
 
To study to be a doctor, Safiya will need to complete a four-year course. The cost is $1,700/year or a total of ONLY $6,800 to pay her university studies entirely!
 
Friends, can we come together to support Safiya? Here in the States, $1,700 only pays for a meal plan, much less an entire tuition! Let us be the answers to her prayers for the chance to continue her education!
 
If the Lord is leading you to help Safiya you may: 
 
1) Send a check to Ting Ministries, 29 East Poplar Street, Lebanon, PA 17042
2) Use our Paypal at www.paypal.me/Tingministries

Dear friends, we have an urgent, heartbeaking plea to share with you today.
There is a family in Pakistan. Their father, the brother of a Christian pastor, was unable to provide for his family due to the rising persecution of Christians in-country. Being Christian, their family continues to be extremely ostracized, unable to find jobs, or purchase basic necessities. Overwhelmed at being unable to take care of his family, he committed suicide, just a few days ago. Now, his widow and four older children are left alone, with no means of caring for themselves. The story has been in Pakistan newspapers (pictured above).
Ting Ministries has contacts in Pakistan who are going to visit the family with food and supplies – but in order to purchase the food, we need to raise $ 160 USD. Such a small amount to help in such a big way to comfort and encourage. If you feel led to give to help this family, please:

January in the Philippines: Support for Feeding Program and a New Auntie

A Note from Pastor Mark about the work our team is continuing this year…

“For the month of January, things are going well and we will be starting lots of changes and expansion to our programs. My wife is reorganizing the orphanage ministry and is asking the orphanage director to allow a new student as a new orphanage Auntie for the children. Also, if one church can really commit support the monthly ministry then we will not be affected in our approach and program for the children. We will also have a long meeting the community leaders for the children’s ministry in the remote areas. Please pray for us and that we will be able the start of the feeding program.”

If you know a church would like to support the monthly feeding program for the orphanage, so the children can receive healthy and supplemental meals, please contact us at tingministries@comcast.net.

Thank you!
