UPDATE: Tin Tin’s Birthday Project: February 2022

This update originally appeared on Facebook on 2/15/22
Avi “Tin Tin’s” Birthday Projects in 6 countries
Her birth date
February 27th
Some projects happening now. View the photos to see how some of your gifts and donations are being used around the world.
We really need your help.
Please if you can not help financially please at least hit the share button. You don’t know who might see the post that might have a heart and a burden for orphans and needy children in
South Asia
Every penny given is sent to the country and project you choose. Every Donation is tax deductible and it costs you nothing to hit the share button.
Please be an encouragement to me (Stephanie) by at least reading about my Avi and her birthday and the projects around the world to honor her life and be a Voice for the Voiceless. Hit the share button because someone might care about hurt and abused animals…someone might care about those living in slave labor in Pakistan…someone might care about the street feedings of 100s of children in the Philippines or the orphans in Indonesia receiving Backpacks, food and the Gospel. Someone might care about the Gospel being carried over the mountains in South Asia or by boat to remote regions in the Philippines.
Help celebrate Avigail’s life with us at Ting Ministries.
God bless you. Hug your loved ones tightly and be ready to share why you love Jesus if someone asks about the God you serve.

Hey friends,
Ting Ministries needs your help. Avi’s birthday is February 27th and we have planned special birthday projects to celebrate her life. She is with Jesus for 3 years and 14 weeks tomorrow.
Each country has a special project planned that will bless many children and families in each country but we need your help.
We sent out 100 letters and countless personal messages and posted on Facebook and Instagram and to date for her birthday we have received $20.00.
That’s right….
I have poured out my heart in expressing the needs around the world and have planned projects that are really needed in each country and have received no response.
TING Ministries is a non- profit 501c3 working in 6 countries to be a Voice for the voiceless. Yes I know we always are posting about fundraising needs but that is what non profits do…that and fundraisers like yard sales and candy sales and t-shirt sales…you name it we have probably tried it.
This month is hard personally. It should have been her birthday I was celebrating and new photos of her I would be taking. Instead I am planning projects around the world to bless other children in her honor and sharing old photos of her. So rather than feeling sorry for myself and my own grief I want to be a Voice for those who have no voice but it seems as though my Voice is also Voiceless.
I am not going to say more and leave it at that.
Can you help make these projects happen for Avi’s birthday?

Avigayil – Avi-Tin Tin
Special Birthday Project
It’s another year gone by- another year of missing her and grieving her – her sweet spirit- her infectious giggle- her beautiful face- her dark curly hair and her button nose. On February 27th Avi “Tin Tin” turns 14 (her birthday in heaven) -there is not a moment of my day that I do not long to “breathe her in.”
Not a moment that I don’t long to hold her in my arms. I ache for the day we once again hold hands and share each moment together
because of her life there is Ting Ministries. She was /is the catalyst for my passion to be a Voice for the Voiceless. So until that day when I am reunited with my girl I will ” Go Where He Sends Me”.
You know the very familiar verse – “…Here I am send me.”? Isaiah 6:8
Send me Lord – send me to each country where Ting Ministries works.
YOU can send me and then I will send the money raised for me to travel onto our directors (pastors) in that country to use for Ting Ministries very special Tin Tin Birthday project in that country.
I call it a REVERSE MISSIONS TRIP. Sometimes we “need to go” and sometimes the impact can be greater if we stay and send the funds on ahead. Thus allowing others to be the hands and feet of Jesus. My heart is filled with an unexplainable joy by seeing the lives of others impacted for Christ.
My GOAL is to raise the amount needed to cover the cost of a missions trip to each of the 6 countries. So $3,000 for each trip – and the money will BE SENT to each respective country to be used for Tin Tin’s Special Birthday Projects. The money sent can be used in a much greater way than for me to be there physically.
TING MINISTRIES- We – Us can be a greater Voice for more voiceless by sending the money on ahead.
So help me – us – celebrate one of the most precious gifts ever given to this earth and me – Avigayil “Tin Tin’s” Birthday.
Allow her life and Voice to be a Voice for countless others.
Send us to:
South Asia
And we will send the funds on to impact the lives of many who otherwise would remain Voiceless.
Thank you from all of us at Ting Ministries.
God Bless You and For His Glory and Kingdom

UPDATE: FUNDED! Medical Care for Filipino Newborn with Clubbed Feet!

Very Important UPDATE: Tonight 2/8/2021
The $2,000 needed for surgery has been raised and the stories behind many that gave are breathtakingly beautiful. God knows each one who gave and why and we pray God answers each prayer and need of each family/person who blessed Baby Boy and his family.
Thank you!

Ting Ministries needs your help.
A newborn baby in the Philippines needs medical care and surgery. We are raising $2,000 to help this precious baby boy receive the care he needs immediately. Our pastor is working directly with the baby and his family.
Baby boy in the Philippines with clubbed feet
This is near and dear to my heart. Our Avigayil (Tin Tin) had club feet when we adopted her from the Philippines.
Our Avigayil “Tin Tin” in the Philippines before she was adopted and her clubbed feet corrected.
She needed extensive procedures/surgery to correct her feet.
Avigayil with me
Avi and her beautiful curls!
This baby’s family has chosen to keep him and not place him in an orphanage. Many families have no means to have necessary medical care for their children and therefore many end up being placed in orphanages. Many of these parents do not want to give up their children but see no other solution.
Baby boy’s family has chosen to reach out to our pastor for help. We are committed to helping them. Can you help us? Every life is precious.
If you would like to help Baby Boy, you may send financial gifts:

What Did You Eat Today? Feeding Children in the Philippines

What Did You Eat Today?
John 6:35-37: “Jesus replied, ‘I am the bread of life. Whoever comes to me will never be hungry again. Whoever believes in me will never be thirsty. But you haven’t believed in me even though you have seen me. However, those the Father has given me will come to me, and I will never reject them.'”

The children pray before the meal

Thanks to our Ting Ministries supporters, children in the Philippines are getting meals weekly. These street children, that otherwise have nowhere to go, are not only being fed physically but also spiritually. Our team of local believers share food and the love of Jesus to nourish the children’s bodies and souls.

To continue this weekly feeding program, we need to find a sponsor(s) who can commit to a total of ONLY $50/week. We ALREADY have a local Filipino sponsor in-country who has committed $50/week. Praise the Lord!

The meal is simple, indeed, for many, the mush these children pray for would be considered inedible or unappetizing. Yet, these children are truly thankful as they bless each meal. Day by day, their faith grows, seeing the Lord provide for their needs. Would you prayerfully consider partnering with us to help grow the faith of these precious children?

Where the meal is cooked

While one-time gifts are appreciated, it would be a HUGE blessing to know this need is provided for. Could you give up one night of eating out or a few coffees a week to care for The Least of These?

“For I was hungry and you gave me something to eat, I was thirsty and you gave me something to drink, I was a stranger and you invited me in, I needed clothes and you clothed me, I was sick and you looked after me, I was in prison and you came to visit me[…] ‘Truly I tell you, whatever you did for one of the least of these brothers and sisters of mine, you did for me.’” Matthew 25: 35-36, 40.

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.

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.

Thank you so much!

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.


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

Thank you!
