A TM Pastor Needs Back Surgery

Pastor James (pictured far right) tells us:
“In 2001, I was lifted a stone for removing  fresh water at the small river since then my back was paining. Then the pain was happening after 5-6 months but the pain was not serious that time.  But now, the pain is very serious and I went to the hospital and the doctor had given me advised for x-ray. The X-ray report was not good; my back bone has a piece of broken and split it. I couldn’t move freely and was in deep pain. The doctor told me that I must need operation to remove a piece of broken bone otherwise I couldn’t move freely and will be pain all the time. The doctor told me that I must go to India for this kind of operation. Please pray for my situation so that I may go in India and operation it. I need your prayers because it will be expensive for operation.”


We all know how physical injury can seriously impede our ability to accomplish day-to-day activities. Pastor James travels on foot to share the Gospel to many villages and remote people groups. We pray that his health would be restored in full, so he would not have the worry of aggravating his injury and so he can continue to serve in the work the Lord has given him.
Dear friends and supporters, would you join us in praying for Pastor James’ health and prayerfully consider helping with the cost of this surgery? The total cost for the travel & medical expenses is $5,000 USD. If you would like to help pay for Pastor James’ surgery, you can:

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.”

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!

  • 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.

TM South Asia Update for April 2018

Our TM Bangladesh leader, Pastor James shares the latest news:

“By the grace of God, we are all doing fine in the ministry and family as well.  Even though we face many difficulties and challenges in our ongoing ministry, He is always with us through the help of the Holy Spirit and gives us new fruits day by day in our ministry. We praise God for His faithfulness and mightily leading us for His Kingdom. To God be the glory!”

This month, our Bengali partners had a seminar for church leaders. Approximately 60 church leaders attended the seminar from different regions and churches. Pastor James says:

“The seminar went very well. They were enjoyed so much for learning many new things at the seminar and receiving seminar. We pray that church leaders would apply what they have learnt from seminar in their respective fields. Please pray for them that they may remain faithful to do in their responsibilities.”

After the seminar ended, our TM Bangladesh teams went to the different villages for follow up. They report the pastors and leaders have been practicing what the seminar taught them to do in their respective fields. They teach one another and they used to do by turn in their responsibilities such as bible study, fellowship, prayer meeting, home visit, the Lord’s Supper, leading worship service and sharing gospel among the unbelieving to their neighbors.

“We praise God for His faithfulness and promises to never leave nor forsake us.”

Our partners tell us that through the Lord’s work, the number of believers is growing daily. This is causing anger among some of the Buddhist population. But Pastor James and our team remain faithful in their work, saying:

“Because God is always with us in every moment, minutes seconds, hours so we do not worry about it. Not only that as a servant of God, we must share the gospel, even though we face many difficulties, threats or any other. Sharing gospel is our duty and responsibility. Nobody can’t stop it. But we need your prayers for this issue so that God will make away for sharing and performing in freedom.”

Please continue to pray for TM Bangladesh. They are so encouraged to know believers from around the world are praying for them and care about furthering the Gospel!

Freedom from Bondage: Annual Leadership Conference

Last week, our Christian brothers and sisters in Bangladesh held their Annual Leadership Conference. This year’s theme was: Freedom from Bondage.

 The five day conference was attended by leaders of the church, lay leaders, women ministry leaders and youth, with a total of 200 participants, from four different tribal people groups. So each activity and program were arranged each people group in their respective languages.

There were two worship services each day during the conference. Our Ting Ministries partners praise God for His guidance in ministry and the organization of the conference. They felt His blessing, fruitful from the beginning to the end. 
During the conference, there were men and women ministry leaders committee meetings about how  to continue in the work the Lord has placed in their lives and how to become more fruitful in the ministry. There was training to the ministry leaders on different topics as they shared ministry reports from different areas of the country. Together, they encouraged one another, prayed for boldness,  and faithfulness for one another. There were times of fellowship and lots of fun, including: a Bible memory competition to emphasize the importance of staying in God’s word, provide encouragement, and prepare others to share the Gospel. A Gospel song competition to grow interest in Music ministry. Bible quizzes were given throughout the conference to grow everyone’s knowledge of the Bible. and fellowship meals. 

The conference also emphasized Christian leadership among women in the church. Our partners say: We have seen many women characters in the Bible how significant roles they have played. Their characters and roles have inspired, enlightened, and empowered many people in the Bible. Those characters still continue to teach us how to live authentic and God-touched lives.” If women are given proper training, they too can play  a significant role in bringing light to the world and save many lost souls. 

All the people greatly enjoyed the conference. They said the preaching and fellowship was a source of encouragement and blessing. The participants are excited and renewed to take what they learned from the conference and apply it to their respective fields.
