Fire, Burns and The Happy Bus

Ting Ministries needs your help!
There is much going on in each country and with each team. Thank you to all who are praying and supporting.
The below photos are from the Philippines, Romania and Pakistan. Two days ago there was a large fire in the Southern Philippines and our pastor and Team are providing relief and sharing the Gospel. You can help!
In Romania 5 puppies saved from a horrible life of the cold and cruel streets just left for their forever home in the UK on what we call the “Happy Bus”. As they leave another 3 babies and their Momma were saved from the same fate and will soon find their forever families.
The last 2 photos are hard to look at but the reality of a young man in Pakistan. He is the relative of a pastor in Pakistan that our Pastor knows. He was recently burned so badly in a tragic accident that both his arms and part of his leg needed to be amputated.
These are only three of the many outreaches and happenings around the world for Ting’s Teams. You can help!

FULLY FUNDED Christmas Project 2020: Tin Tin’s House

Update with New Photos: November 25, 2020

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.
Avigayil
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:

Thank you for changing the lives of children with the Gospel this Christmas! To God be the Glory!

Bombing in Southern Philippines: Children Among Those Killed & 28 Wounded!

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.

Flying Zhong Home – Meet 3 Sisters Bringing Home Their Brother, One Card at a Time!

Read the awesome story of the Kelley family, friends of Ting Ministries, whose daughters put together an artwork fundraiser to bring home their brother from China! Zhong is the best friend of one of their daughters who was adopted from China last year! This is their third China adoption but first adoption fundraiser – so let’s share the word and some encouragement! Check out some of their artwork below and visit their website to see more!

The Story

“Zhong’s three sisters, Grace, Ruthie & Mackenzie, have been working hard on creating a set of Christmas cards and greeting cards in an effort to help bring their new brother home! Our goal is to raise enough money for all of Zhong’s plane tickets home […] then, if the Lord wills, we can also work on paying toward all the other adoption expenses we owe and upcoming travel expenses.”

The Artwork:

“All of the watercolors & stamped backgrounds were created by Ruthie, our 13 year old, & Grace our 8 year old who has cerebral palsy (mentioning her CP as I’m super pleased with her artistic efforts despite her challenges with hand coordination) and then Mackenzie, 22, added her hand calligraphy to all the cards […]”

See the full product gallery on their website here!

“Envelopes are included. We are taking pre-orders for two weeks before printing so that we can get exactly what you want and not have too many extras of one kind or another. We will work hard to have the cards available to pick up and/or shipped to you by Thanksgiving.”

The Kelley girls are selling Christmas cards, greeting cards, birthday cards, thank yous, get well soon cards and MORE!

Guest Artist: From a Fellow Adoptive Mother, Gallery Artist, and Children’s Book Illustrator

“Cady Driver, a fellow adoptive mom, who is a professional artist in North Carolina, is sharing her prints with me to add to our fundraiser!!! She already sold enough of her beautiful watercolors on antique hymnal prints to fully fund her entire China adoption expenses, so now she wants to bless others! She allowed me to select 5 of her bird hymnal prints and is having her printer ship the prints directly to me at printing cost. Cady is not taking a dime. Cady is a gallery artist and children’s book illustrator and she wants to give God the glory for her talent and bless others with it. When Cady learned about the girls’ card fundraiser, she offered to let us also make available her gorgeous hymnal prints! These can be easily framed in an inexpensive 8×10 frame or matted or floated in a larger frame. These make beautiful gifts!

You can see more hymnal prints on their website here!

“The hymnal prints are coming from North Carolina and will take about 1.5 weeks turn around once I tell the printer how many we need…. so I should have those ready for you to pick up first week of Dec. For shipped prints, I would expect them to arrive to you during the second week of December.”
