Ministry Updates:

Here’s how Ting Ministries continues to serve around the world and proclaim the name of Jesus Christ!

  • The Philippines: Pastor “John” and his wife continue to minister to remote and vulnerable peoples who are receiving no aid otherwise. They believe more people will die of starvation than of any other means, given the current situation in the country. Please pray for protection of ministry, safe travels, and receptive hearts as they share the love of Christ. Pictured: Food outreach in the Philippines

  • Indonesia: Through the Carpenter’s former Compassion International sponsor child, Ting Ministries is reaching vulnerable and elderly individuals with food resources during the crisis. Continued prayers for provision, strength and protection appreciated. Pictured: Distributing food to families in-need

  • South Asia: Please continue to keep Pastor “James'” teenage daughter in your prayers. She is recovering well from a bout of illness, though she is still weak. We continue to have opportunities for sponsorships ($15/month). Please pray for provision for the children’s home in-country. There is a great need for teachers and cooks there, as well as for the growth and sustaining of women’s ministry. Pictured: Children from the children’s home singing praise and worship songs. Also: Ministry partners must make long treks through rugged terrain to share the Gospel and reach villages with basic supplies.

  • Romania: We are continuing to serve in partnership with Romanian animal rescuers and through them Ting Ministries is sharing the love of Jesus not only to abused animals but also some to needy souls. Our contacts were working to purchase a small home with a plot of land but do to the lockdown and fears amid the virus since the sale has fallen through. But out of the huge disappointment God is doing something better. We have been able to use a plot of land already owned by our contacts and tear down the ruined structure and begin rebuilding a small home. Most of the animals are already on the property now and the fencing is being fixed. 12 of the rescued puppies have been able to make it safely to the UK to their new families even though they had been delayed a month due to the lockdown in Romania. Since we are tearing down and rebuilding we now have 2 more families being blessed by Ting Ministries. Please add Marian and Mr. I and their families to your prayers as they are daily working on the tear down and rebuild. Marian was raised by his grandmother and is 21 and has no parents. Mr. I has 1 son who is 18 and his wife passed away. Pray that we can share the love of Jesus and the Gospel! Pictured: Marian working on rebuilding.

  • Ukraine: Please continue to pray for Bible Orphan Ministry as they minister to aging-out orphans and for Pastor Misha’s health. Pictured: Dinner with youth at the home of BOM

  • Pakistan: Pray for recent ministry developments, including student sponsorships, that have started to grow through local believers. Pictured: Believers worshipping in Pakistan

Tin Tin’s Day – Help the Philippines Celebrate

Update from February 14th, 2020: Ting Ministries sends a big thank you to those who helped us exceed our $400 goal for Tin Tin’s party in the Philippines! Updates to follow!

Update from February 10th, 2020: We are halfway there! Thank you to the generous donor who gave $200 dollars towards Tin Tim’s celebration! Can you help us reach our goal?

Dear friends can you help us? Our pastor and friends in the Philippines are planning a day for Avi, or, as she is affectionately known in the Philippines – Tin Tin! February 27th, Tin Tin’s 13th birthday, will be a celebration of her life. Our Pastor in the Philippines is planning to gather many street children together. Our team will feed them and share the love of Jesus with them in Tin Tin’s honor! Her life is continuing to change countless lives. The street children who are coming to Tin Tin’s party are the same children who we wish to help through the construction of Tin Tin’s house! It is our deepest prayer that the children who come feel the love of Christ, develop a relationship with Him and our pastor’s family so Tin Tin’s house may be a home of safety and peace.

Tin Tin needs your help to raise $400 for the celebration! Can you help us reach this goal by next week?

Tin Tin knows Jesus is coming again! Can you picture her running through the streets of heaven, a parade of praises ringing behind her? May this video give you a glimpse! 

I know He’s coming again/ I know He’s coming again/ Yes, I know/ He’s coming again/ I know He’s coming again/ He’s coming again, He’s coming again/ Doo, doo, doo…/ We’ll keep on singing ’til He comes again/ Then we’ll sing some more/ We’ll keep on singing ’til He comes again/ Until we reach the golden shores/ We’ll keep on singing ’til He comes again/ Then we’ll sing some more…

Join in the celebration! You may give by:
Sending a check: Ting Ministries, 29 East Poplar Street, Lebanon, PA 17042

All gifts designated for Tin Tin’s party will go 100% towards the celebration! Thank you!

Encouraging Update from Pastor “James” in South Asia

An encouraging update from Pastor “James” in South Asia:

Note: Names and pictures of pastors or others are not shared for their protection and safety. God is good all the time, all the time God is so good. We really praise God for His abundantly blessings giving to us and for His guidance in the ministry.

We visited villages for sharing the gospel to those who have never heard about the word of God. Some people had joined at the sharing event and receptive for gospel and five people were accepted Jesus Christ as their Lord and personal Savior. Those who have accepted Christ they invited us again to go to their villages. We are praying to go in their villages again and sharing the gospel. Please join us in prayer for those villages to know who is Lord of lords and King of kings.

The house churches are doing fine with their ministry activities and daily lives. They are leading by turns in their ministry activities such as home visit, prayer meeting, bible studies.We are praying we will be able to visit those churches who still need more for teaching, so we may go and spend more time with them for teaching and practices.

Children in South Asia attend Sunday School

Recently, we prayed for four women and one child. Two of them are healed from their sicknesses in the name of Jesus of Nazareth! Six believers were baptized!

We also had one day church leadership seminar for men and women. The theme was: “Follow my example, as I follow the example of Christ” (1 Cor 11:1). 25 leaders were present. The seminar went well. The leaders were learned & experienced many things on seminar which they said that they can do in our respective fields. Please pray for them that they may teach in their villages what they have learned from the seminar.

At the children’s home, everyone is doing fine with their studies. They are all growing day by day in their learning and daily lives. They are experiencing about the love of God’s. We praise God for providing for a home & schooling. We thank you so much for what you have been doing for us and His Kingdom.

Pillow & Blanket Challenge – UPDATE from May 29!

A special donor has covered the cost of 22 pillows with a gift of $110! This international teenager, who wishes to remain anonymous, has given out of their own small savings to help orphans. To the donor, from Ting Ministries’ heart to yours, THANK YOU! May the Lord bless you richly for obeying His instruction in James 1:27. “Let no one look down on you, because you are young, but set an example for the believers…” (1 Timothy 4:12).

While as the widow with two mites, this gift may seem small to others. But we rejoice knowing the compassion with which this teenager gave from what she had!

With this generous gift, we need only 7 more pillows ($5 each = $30 total). And 30 blankets, $7 each. Help us meet a small tangible need in a child’s life and in doing so, share the love of Christ to make a lasting difference.

Memo: Pillow & Blanket Challenge

The Widow and Her Two Mites: “Jesus sat down opposite the place where the offerings were put and watched the crowd putting their money into the temple treasury. Many rich people threw in large amounts. But a poor widow came and put in two very small copper coins, worth only a few cents.

Calling his disciples to him, Jesus said, ‘Truly I tell you, this poor widow has put more into the treasury than all the others. They all gave out of their wealth; but she, out of her poverty, put in everything—all she had to live on.'” Mark 12:41-44

Featured Sponsor Children: Huailah and Sav from South Asia

Micah 6:8 (NIV)
He has shown you, O mortal, what is good.
And what does the Lord require of you?
To act justly and to love mercy
and to walk humbly with your God.

Dear Ting Ministries friends,
We need your help in Bangladesh. Pastor James recently returned from planting a new church in a village and sharing the Gospel with indigenous people. There are so many needs in these villages and especially with the poverty-stricken village orphans and deprived poor children.

The village where a new church was planted

Ting Ministries also needs your help to feed the children currently living at the Children’s Home near the border of Burma. There are two children included in this post for sponsorship and there are 19 others we will also be sharing this month. Monthly sponsorship suggested amount is $30.00/month.

Meet beautiful Huailah (left, age 9) and shy Sav (right, age 7)! They are both waiting for sponsors so they can continue living at our TM Children’s Home where they will learn about Jesus and receive an education. Learn more about becoming a sponsor by reading the info below their pictures.

Any amount of help for Bangladesh would be so appreciated!
