Go and Do – Help for the Philippines

For those who may not know, Ting Ministries started its work in the Philippines.

We provided aid to one little girl, in one orphanage. That little girl is now Avigayil Carpenter, daughter of Brian and Stephanie. Because of her adoption, 30+ former Muslim street boys now have a home with Pastor John’s family. Over 1,300 people recieved medical care through last week’s outreach. Children and refugees were rescued from ISIS. Recognizing the difference Pastor John and our team are making, our TM Philippines team is constantly asked to take in more children wherever they go. It is our largest place of ministry, but remains heavily under-supported.

Many times, our team find people living in terrible situations and our hearts are broken. Pastor John went to visit the grandmother of two children his family has taken in.

There, they found a young girl with a child living in a makeshift tent, in squalor (pictured below). They have taken in these young kids, because their hearts were burdened for them and they listened to God’s call to fulfill James 1:27. “Pure and undefiled religion in the sight of God the Father is this: to look after orphans and widows in their distress and to keep oneself unpolluted by the world.”

Dear friends, we need your help to continue our ministry in the Philippines and reaching these children with the love of Christ. Prayer is a large part of how we can support one another in the body of Christ. However, meeting practical, tangible needs when confronted with them is an equally important part of our work for the children who are in these desperate situations.

 “What good is it, dear brothers and sisters, if you say you have faith but don’t show it by your actions? Can that kind of faith save anyone? Suppose you see a brother or sister who has no food or clothing, and you say, “Good-bye and have a good day; stay warm and eat well”—but then you don’t give that person any food or clothing. What good does that do? So you see, faith by itself isn’t enough. Unless it produces good deeds, it is dead and useless.” ~ James 2:14-17

Pastor John and his wife need our help to continue the work the Lord has placed in front of them. Children and situations like these are not an exception – they are the norm. Ting Ministries has a heart to reach even more, and we plan to build a house in the property next to where Pastor John lives, so that he can continue to take in more children. Would you consider how you can help?

You can become a Ting Friend for one of our Filipino children for 30 dollars/month. As a Ting Friend, you will: recieve a picture and info about your friend, become a prayer partner, and support your friend as they grow in the Lord. Contact us at: tingministries@comcast.net for more info.

You can help us build a large addition to Pastor John’s house so he can take in more children OR  give a one time donation of any amount to help with the greatest needs in the Philippines. If you’d like to give, you can: 1. give online at: www.paypal.me/Tingministries or send a check to: Ting Ministries, 29 East Poplar Street, Lebanon, PA 17042.

Ting ‘s Friends

Ecclesiastes 4:9-10 

“Two people are better off than one, for they can help each other succeed. If one person falls, the other can reach out and help. But someone who falls alone is in real trouble.”

What is a Ting Friend?

Ting’s Friends is based on the kind of friendship one finds in Ellianna Ya-Ting, the namesake of Ting Ministries. Like Ellianna Ya-Ting herself, Ting friends: love life, always see the good in others, and don’t hesitate help others in need – with a smile and joyful heart!

A Ting friend:

  • develops a personal relationship with their international Ting friend. You’ll receive pictures and info about your Ting friend. You also have the opportunity to send pictures and notes to your Ting friend through Ting Ministries and our international contacts.
  • becomes a prayer partner with their Ting friend. Approximately every other month, we will forward your individual and family prayer requests to your Ting friend and we will send you prayer requests from your Ting friend.
  • supports their Ting friend financially and emotionally to go to school, grow in their relationship with Christ, and be a source of invaluable support as they grow up. Ting friends can choose to support their friend in our TM Children’s Home for 15 or 30 dollars/month, or 360 dollars/year.

Beds for Boys – Provide Beds for Children in the Philippines

COMPLETED: Saturday, May 26, 2018

Thank you to all who have given to the Beds for Boys Project! With your help, Ting Ministries was able to purchase six beds for all of Pastor John’s boys in the Philippines. They are blessed and grateful to know this need is taken care of.

Thanks,

Brian and Stephanie Carpenter

Update: Tuesday, May 22, 2018

Check out the progress on our Beds for Boys project! We need 30 dollars to purchase the FOURTH of 6 beds!

If you feel led to partner with this project, you can:
1. Donate online: www.paypal.me/Tingministries
2. Or send a check to: Ting Ministries, 29 East Poplar Street, Lebanon, PA 17042
Please note: Beds for Philippines

Thank you to all our TM supporters  who have partnered to buy beds so far! We couldn’t continue to help the orphan without you!

Update: Monday, May 21, 2018

Half of the beds for our TM boys in the Philippines are paid for! Thank you to all the donors who have helped meet this need so far. We only need 390 USD to provide beds for all of the boys in the Philippines. Can you help us reach our goal for the remaining three beds? If everyone who looked at our last update gave two dollars, we’d reach our goal! Thanks for helping us make a lasting impact through meeting practical needs in the Philippines. See the bottom of this post for details on how you can partner with our Beds for Boys project. 

UPDATE: Sunday, May 20, 2018
Thank you to the generous donor (you know who you are!) who donated another bed for the boys in the Philippines! We now need only 469 DOLLARS to pay for ALL the beds! See below to learn how you can give to this practical, but much-needed project!

Update: May 19, 2018

We have raised enough funds for over one bed so far in our Beds for Boys Project!

This means we need ONLY 599 more dollars to raise to provide beds for all the street boys Pastor John has taken into his family. For our TM family in the Philippines, the cost of obeying the command of James 1:27 and following our Lord’s heart for the orphan means the boys are currently sleeping on a cement floor. While most grateful for a family, they would be amazed to know that others have helped meet this practical need in their lives. You can read the original post and learn how to donate below.

Original Post:

Pastor John in the Philippines has taken in over 24 former street children in the Philippines. Along with sponsoring these children to go to school our TM team also supports Pastor John’s family so they can continue their outreach.

Four more boys recently joined Pastor John’s family. Along with Jeffery and Jerome (top image), there is…

Jimboy, the youngest child at 10 years old, in the white shirt…

 

 

and Isamark and Junnex!

Pastor John’s family is glad to open their home to these boys in need. Two of them lost their parents a month ago. Some of them do not even know their own birthdays. All the boys in Pastor John’s family are going to school through the help of TM supporters. They started a small business and when they finish school, they plan to help other street children, like their dad, Pastor John.

Pastor John has shared a practical but important need. His family wants to purchase bunk beds for the boys. Right now, they are all sleeping on a cement floor! Can you imagine? While the boys are simply thankful to have a family, we hope you will consider helping meet this practical need in their lives! The boys pray for our TM family and would be so blessed to receive the beds!

The beds Pastor John hopes to purchase for the boys

Each bed costs 130 USD and Pastor John needs 6 beds to accommodate all the boys. That’s a total of 780 USD. The beds will be purchased in country to save on overseas shipping costs and practical transportation. 100% of every donation to Ting Ministries goes to the need you specify. To donate to the Beds for Boys, please

  1. Donate online at www.paypal.me/Tingministries
  2. Send a check to Ting Ministries, 29 East Poplar Street, Lebanon, PA 17042

 

Thank you!

New Life in Ukraine

Dear friends, thank you to all who helped Artem and Yana move closer to our friends from BOM. Once struggling to live on their own, now Artem and Yana are enjoying their new life with our BOM family.

 

 

Praise the Lord for the work he is doing in these young souls! They are finding a new sense of purpose as they travel with BOM to visit and help at orphanages. Just recently, they went with our partners to deliver items to orphan graduates. They also went out for some fellowship and fun. You can see the happiness and belonging on their faces. Please pray that the Lord would continue to work in their hearts, that they would come to know Jesus through the love of BOM, Ting Ministries, and our faithful supporters.
