TM Home for Children Under Construction – Become a Ting Friend Today!

Meet some of the children who will be living in our TM Children’s Home in Bangladesh! Check out the progress! In the meantime, we need just $3,200 to finish construction (for the building with the kitchen/dining room).

Here is the building of the children’s home.

Here is the School building, where Children will get a Christian education.

If you would like to partner with us to help orphaned children out of poverty and trafficking, this is a wonderful way to get involved. At the children’s home, these kids will get a Christian education, daily meals, and a place to sleep, in a family-like setting. By partnering with us, you are changing lives!

Here are pictures of some of the first children that will come to stay at our TM home.

 

 

 

 

 

 

The children can start coming at anytime, as soon as they find someone to support their new life!

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…

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.

Ting Ministries and Bible Orphan Ministry – Hope After Hosting for 2 Ukrainian Orphans

Update: April 15, 2018
Thank you for those who responded to the need for Artem and Yana! Immediately after we sent out the newsletter, we received well over our goal! Thank you for helping Ting Ministries and Bible Orphan Ministry reach these young lives. We are so blessed at the response and praise God that we will be able to help them get a new start surrounded by mentors. Please pray that Artem and Yana would feel the love of Jesus overwhelmingly through our team and supporters and that they would come to know Jesus. Please pray also for their protection and that Jesus would give them peace instead of any fear or doubt they may feel as we soon begin this transition . James 1:27 and 2 Corinthians 5:17

Question: What happens to host children who are never adopted?  This is a common question in the adoption community and one with real implications for children.

Where Artem and Yana are currently living. BOM told us they get water from a basin in the sink and take outdoor showers in the summer.

Today, Ting Ministries is working to aid two former host children through the help of our in-country partners, Bible Orphan Ministry. Brother and sister, Artem and Yana (names changed for privacy) were hosted several times, sadly aging out before they were adopted. We at Ting Ministries knew these children and were able to stay in touch with them

Yana and Artem with our BOM partners. 



Our BOM partners were able to spend a day with them and saw first-hand their terrible living conditions – no firewood for the winter, little available water, no money for food. Unfortunately, for orphans who “age out,” this is the norm. Not an exception.

 

The living conditions inside. 

 Our friends from BOM spent the day with them supplying practical needs, loving them and sharing the Gospel, demonstrating the love of Jesus in a very real way. Ting Ministries and BOM were heartbroken to hear that Artem and Yana begged to go with our partners, asking: “Can you take us with you now?” 

BOM took Yana and Artem for a meal together.
Artem and Yana told us:
“We are so thankful to you all and miss you terribly! May God protect your paths. Thank you!”
BOM helped Artem and Yana go shopping. They never learned how to cook. Artem didn’t know how to shave using shaving cream, as it was always too expensive. We are so grateful by our BOM partners who mentored and loved these kids!

 

 

 

These two teenagers are trying to survive on their own, without any support. Artem is studying and Yana wants to go to university, but there are few opportunities for them outside of the orphanage.

We plan to help Artem and Yana move closer to our BOM partners so they me be mentored and taught by our BOM partners and other Ukrainian Christians. We have already raised the money for Artem and Yana’s bus tickets. But they each need 200 USD for adequate summer clothing. BOM’s van was also damaged on the torn up roads to the village and the cost of repairs amounts to 155 USD.  In order to fulfill this need for Artem and Yana, we need a total of 555 USD.

The roads to Artem and Yana’s village.

We have the ability to change the lives of two orphans for the better. They are not just names and pictures – they have fears and dreams. They are longing to be loved.

What are we living for?

Please pray for Yana and Artem, that through the love of Ting Ministries, BOM and all our supporters, that they would come feel and know the love of Jesus.
If you’d like to give and help answer Artem and Yana’s prayers for someone to come and care for them, you can: donate online at www.paypal.me/Tingministries or send a check to: Ting Ministries, 29 East Poplar Street, Lebanon, PA 17042
