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.”

In order to keep providing for the children in the care of the home, we currently need $500 to provide for food and resources in-country.

April 7: Eight Years Later, Avi’s Adoption Helps Filipino Children Attend VBS

April 7, 2011 – One of the best days of our lives. Avigayil Christina “TinTin” came home to the USA and met Daddy and Ellianna for the first time. We are missing our beautiful girl with sparkling eyes and curly black hair every hour of every day! There are times when heaven meets earth and miracles occur. She is one of those miracles.

Avi meeting her daddy in the airport for the very first time

How great is our God, sing with me
How great is our God and all will see
How great, how great is our God

(lyrics – How Great is our God by Chris Tomlin)

So friends Avi started something- she started Ting Ministries Philippines and there is so much need. Today I write to ask for help for 30 orphans to attend a week-long vacation Bible camp with our Filipino Pastor and Team. We have 30 orphans we would like to support for only $22! That’s right, only $22 covers an ENTIRE week of camp for a child! A gift of $660 would fund the camp for ALL the children. Please help us to help these orphans attend camp and learn about Jesus and learn how Great is our God.

In Honor of Avigayil: Construction Beginning For Tin Tin’s House

“Let us build a foundation for the homeless kids here sister. Let’s build a home for them that one day they can have the eternal home in heaven… my heart cries for the homeless every day…” Pastor John, Philippines

 

 

We are writing today with news that we have raised the first $2,000 for Tin Tin’s Home in the Philippines. In honor of Avigayil “Tin Tin,” this home will allow Pastor John in the Philippines to bring more children home, like the ones in the pictures above. Pastor John and team just found these children, alone and naked, wandering the streets. Our hearts ache for these children. Tin Tin’s home will give them a safe place to live, the ability to go to school and most importantly – the chance to be part of a family. Because of Avi’s adoption, Pastor John’s heart was moved for the orphan and he has already taken in over 20 former street boys – and while the family’s hearts have room for more, they need to build a place for the children to live, adding a building next to Pastor John’s home.

Many of you have asked how our family, particularly Stephanie, is doing. Stephanie is heartbroken with grief over the loss of Avi – and it is the need of these children that is keeping her going. So today, we Stephanie’s deepest wish to you:

In honor of Avi, will you help us build Tin Tin’s home? This project will cost approximately $20,000. With the first part raised, we can now start building the foundation on faith. 

If you would like to give a gift to help Tin Tin’s Home become reality and to help Avigayil’s life make a difference for children in the Philippines:
