Toys for Children of the Jolo Fire

26,000 indviduals were recently affected by the devastating Jolo fires in the Philippines. Our team in the Philippines has been on the ground with victims of the fire for the last couple weeks. They are praising the Lord for His provision of 2,800 relief items for victims.

We are looking for Ting Ministries partners who feel led to help raise $500 USD to provide toys for the children affected by the fires. Children are especially affected by such a traumatic event, and something as simple as a toy can be a source of “normalcy” and healing. Not only does this allow our team to provide tangible aid, but it is also an opportunity to share the love of Jesus Christ. To give a gift to a child in need: visit www.paypal.me/Tingministries OR send a check to our mailing address: Ting Ministries, 29 East Poplar Street, Lebanon, PA 17042

Emergency Update: We Need Tangible Help for the Philippines!

Update: This need was met! Thank you to our supporters!

EMERGENCY: Okay friends! You may have seen our update yesterday from the Philippines, asking for help. Today, the situation has gotten worse. Our team is down in Marawi and they have run out of fundsand they still have 200-300 children to feed tomorrow. Trusting the Lord, they went down and were able to have several days of ministry, but unless people like our supporters begin to help in tangible ways, there is nothing they can do! Some people may call it foolish to go down having little else but faith, but what else can you do when you see suffering and the Lord commands us to “Go?” (James 1:27)



Pictured is a little girl who sustained severe burns on her face during the fighting between ISIS and the military in Marawi. Dear friends – I am pleading with you – this is why we need you! Ask yourself what you can give, even if it is 5 dollars it makes a big difference! If everyone who liked only our Facebook page gave ONLY 5 dollars we would have more than enough!
The total needed is 1,060 dollars. Please. It is nighttime in the Philippines. Let’s show Pastor Mark the faithfulness of the Lord by having the need fully met when he wakes up! To Donate, go to: www.paypal.me/tingministries and specify Emergency Marawi Relief.
Thank you and help us be a Voice for the Voiceless.

Completed: Marawi Children’s Relief: Emergency Update (Part 2)

UPDATE 7/26/17: Our goal for the Children’s Relief is FULLY FUNDED! Thanks to everyone who gave, prayed, and shared. Stay tuned for more updates as Pastor Mark continues working in Marawi. 

To see the first update and pictures from Marawi please go to this post. 

A collection of updates from Pastor Mark on the ground in Marawi. 

Pastor Mark: “This is one of the kids and his name is Andrew* (not real name). He told me that he was brainwashed to join the ISIS. He wants to go with me to Zamboanga… oh… I really wanted to cry!”
Oh, how our hearts ache for Andrew. Please keep him in your prayers! Just imagine how many countless children there are in similar situations. 

The children asked Pastor Mark if they could have a party. Not part of the original plan, the team put together an instant party for these children who have been uprooted, traumatized, and on high-alert since the ISIS attack. Here you can see what Pastor Mark is seeing: children finally being children again in Marawi.
The children Pastor Mark is helping Marawi fled their homes. Right now, they are living in tents and many of them did not even have a pair of underwear. Can you imagine? They were so happy to just receive one new pair of underwear. 


580 dollars is needed to reach our goal – so every child can be helped by the relief program and recieve food, clothing, toys, etc. If you want to give a gift of love to these children, who have been displaced and/or orphaned by ISIS, you can: 1. Use the PayPal on the side of our website. 2. Send a check to Ting Ministries, 904 State Drive, Lebanon PA 1702. Thank you dear friends! You are making a world of difference for these children.

Completed: Marawi Children’s Relief: Emergency Update: Please Share!

UPDATE 7/26/17: Our goal for the Children’s Relief is FULLY FUNDED! Thanks to everyone who gave, prayed, and shared. Stay tuned for more updates as Pastor Mark continues working in Marawi.

Below are just some of the pictures sent by Pastor Mark who wrote: “We are having a children’s party for the traumatized children. This is not actually part of our agenda but when we talk to the children… they asked us if we can have a children’s party for them so we prepared an instant children’s party for them…”

Dear friends, very late last night we had an emergency need from Pastor Mark. He and the team were going down for children and youth relief in Marawi and were shocked to learn their preparations for 300 children were nowhere close to the 700 that awaited them. While they have started the relief already, they need 580 dollars to ensure all the children can recieve a meal, enew unnderwear, clothing, toys etc. Thank you to our one donor so far! There are some particularly wrenching stories Pastor Mark sent us, which will share throughout the day, as putting them all together would not do them justice.

Please look through the pictures and if you want to give a gift of love to these children, who have been displaced and/or orphaned by ISIS, you can: 1. Use the PayPal button on the side of our website. 2. Send a check to Ting Ministries, 904 State Drive, Lebanon PA 1702. Thank you dear friends! You are making a world of difference for these children.

Happy Independence Day: Need for School Fees and Marawi Relief Program (a Philippines Ministry Update)

As we celebrate our freedom and independence on this July 4th, the people of Marawi, Philippines are still struggling under the recent ISIS attack at the beginning of the summer. We have an update from Pastor Mark to share with you. He has been in Marawi for 2 weeks now, establishing a relief program, helping street children, trying to relocate lost family members, and ministering to soldiers. Some of the people he has met with have accepted Christ! Here is what he has to say:

The children Ting Ministries plans to help send to school 
(not including the children already going to school in Zamboanga). 


“There are thousands of displaced children who didn’t have much food a month now. Hundreds of children are displaced from their families and we are going to look for then tomorrow. Marawi is a mountainous area and so big… Please pray for our ministry. These are the pictures of the children under education support in Zamboanga. THIS IS ALL BY FAITH Sister. Some of the Zamboanga churches think that I am crazy of coming to Marawi…faith is indeed a crazy thing to others! HALLELUJAH!”
The van that Ting Ministries’ helped provide a couple months ago is very
beneficial! Pastor Mark and others drove it down to Marawi.

Wounded soldiers in Marawi. There was an ambush yesterday afternoon,
 and some of them were injured. They were ministered to yesterday and
 some of them accepted Christ!
We need your help to send the rest of these street children to school in Zamboanga and anything above the cost of this, Pastor Mark will be able to use for Marawi relief. Please keep the people of Marawi, the street children, and our ministry partners in your prayers! Later today, we will share a particularly tragic, yet joyous story from Marawi with you.

The relief program underway, providing food
 and necessities to the people of Marawi.
If you would like to give towards the joint project of school fees/Marawi relief, there are several ways to help: The blue Donate button at the top of the Facebook page will take you to our website, where you can donate through PayPal. Or send a check to Ting Ministries, 904 State Drive, Lebanon, PA 17042. (For both options, please designate for Marawi Relief). Thank you dear friends, followers, and brothers and sisters in Christ.
May we never take for-granted the freedom and protection we celebrate on July 4th. Happy Independence Day USA!
