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.

Avi’s 12th Birthday: A Letter from Stephanie

February 27, 2019
Avigayil Christina “Tin Tin” Today is your 12th Birthday

Missing you with every breath and waiting to run with you and Jesus. Being here without you is so hard. Until that day I will pour myself into being a Voice for the Voiceless! Like Elisha may I have a double portion of your Holy Spirit to live out Proverbs 31: 8-9 and James 1:27

Our Avi. Her name in Hebrew, Avigayil, means Joy of the Father

Today on your birthday in honor of you we helped an animal rescue in Romania save a precious puppy from a horrible life. He is now safe in the arms of a rescue group and we named him Avi ( Hebrew, meaning – “my Father!”)

2 Kings 2:11-12
” As they were walking along and talking behold a chariot of fire and horses of fire separated the two of them and Elijah went up by a whirlwind into heaven. As Elisha was watching, he was crying out, “Avi! Avi! The chariot of Israel and it’s horsemen!” Then he saw him no more. So he took hold of his own clothes and tore them in two pieces.” (Messianic Jewish Tree of Life Version)

Happy Birthday, Avi!

Revival in the Philippines

Ting Ministries Philippines – many photos to encourage you and give you a glimpse into the ministry going on now.

These photos say it all – revival among the youth! Our pastor says the youth are learning to love the children so they too can go and be a light in a dark world!

Some of the boys are getting special teaching from a tutor because they did not have education but thanks to a sponsor here in the USA they are able to have special lessons. Thank you to their sponsors – you know who you are!

Ting Ministries pastor and his wife are traveling to Malaysia to help Filipino children . Some of these children are orphans and we hope and pray to eventually bring them to Tin Tin’s House to care for them, educate them and love them as the precious children they are.

Please consider helping Ting Ministries Philippines with the many needs in the Philippines and building the Tin Tin House.

Nine Weeks Later: Tin Tin’s House & Philippines Update

“…Put all your hope in the gracious salvation that will come to you when Jesus Christ is revealed to the world.


1 Peter 1:13 NLT

It is 9 weeks and still my words fail me…God’s Word does not. Missing our girl with every breath! The ministry and the needs of orphans and needy around the world continue.

The Tin Tin house in the Philippines will be built and many have already given and are praying. A special thank you to everyone. We have received the first professional drawings of what Tin Tin’s House will look like.

Just today the team in the Philippines gave gifts to over 400 poor and needy.

Thank you for your prayers and gifts!

In Honor of Avigayil: Construction Beginning For Tin Tin’s House

“Let us build a foundation for the homeless kids here sister. Let’s build a home for them that one day they can have the eternal home in heaven… my heart cries for the homeless every day…” Pastor John, Philippines

 

 

We are writing today with news that we have raised the first $2,000 for Tin Tin’s Home in the Philippines. In honor of Avigayil “Tin Tin,” this home will allow Pastor John in the Philippines to bring more children home, like the ones in the pictures above. Pastor John and team just found these children, alone and naked, wandering the streets. Our hearts ache for these children. Tin Tin’s home will give them a safe place to live, the ability to go to school and most importantly – the chance to be part of a family. Because of Avi’s adoption, Pastor John’s heart was moved for the orphan and he has already taken in over 20 former street boys – and while the family’s hearts have room for more, they need to build a place for the children to live, adding a building next to Pastor John’s home.

Many of you have asked how our family, particularly Stephanie, is doing. Stephanie is heartbroken with grief over the loss of Avi – and it is the need of these children that is keeping her going. So today, we Stephanie’s deepest wish to you:

In honor of Avi, will you help us build Tin Tin’s home? This project will cost approximately $20,000. With the first part raised, we can now start building the foundation on faith. 

If you would like to give a gift to help Tin Tin’s Home become reality and to help Avigayil’s life make a difference for children in the Philippines:
