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!

Can You Take Them: A Ting House and Indigenous Children

Pastor Mark tells us: “My wife and I are here in an indigenous tribe visiting the orphans and children. We are looking for more partners to sponsor children to schools. Please pray that God will doors of opportunities. These children are mostly illiterate and only 18% are going to formal studies. Most of then are living in mountainous and remote places.”

Also, Pastor Mark took another trip to Marawi, where he was met by thirty orphaned children. Those in charge of the relief center asked him: Can you please take them? Pastor Mark’s heart was broken. Friends, Pastor Mark would love to take these children back with him to Zamboanga so they could go to school and experience the love of a family. However, before this would be possible – we need a place for them to stay. We need your help to build a children’s home, a Ting House, for children like these. Pastor Mark and his family would welcome them, but until we have an additional home in Zamboanga, these children have nowhere to go. Please pray for the Lord to provide the funds needed so we can carry out the mission of James 1:27: To care for the orphans and widows in their distress and to keep oneself from being polluted by the world.
