Safiya Plans to be a Doctor: Can You Help Make it Possible?

 
Pictured: Safiya’s family 
 
Dear Friends – We have an update on our TM Pakistani family! We heard from our partners that Safiya, the oldest daughter of the TM family waiting for a sponsor, wants to go to university to become a doctor!  This is not a light decision on her part or on ours; she has shown the determination to stay with the program and succeed.Before her father’s death, Safiya was a top student in her school, receiving all A’s in her classes. After our partners’ first visit where she told us she wanted to go to university, she went to different schools and gathered information about possible programs. 
 
To study to be a doctor, Safiya will need to complete a four-year course. The cost is $1,700/year or a total of ONLY $6,800 to pay her university studies entirely!
 
Friends, can we come together to support Safiya? Here in the States, $1,700 only pays for a meal plan, much less an entire tuition! Let us be the answers to her prayers for the chance to continue her education!
 
If the Lord is leading you to help Safiya you may:

Adoption – Urgent Rescue from ISIS

Pastor John recently visited an area of the Philippines where 83% of the children are living in poverty and are malnourished. Despite their circumstances, the children desire to go to school with others. Ting Ministries is thankful that the school fees for our current children has been provided for! However, the need is growing as our Ting Ministries team goes and visits more needy children. Please consider becoming a sponsor.

Sponsors will do more then help children go to school. With more support, Pastor John can take in more children. He has been asked by leaders to bring more children into his home – before ISIS brainwashes them! The need is real and urgent for these innocent lives. Please consider how you can change their lives for the better. 

Full Sponsorship: 30 dollars/month includes monthly school fees and other basic necessities for the children.

Partial Sponsorship: 15 or 10 dollars/month.

One-Year: 72 dollars pays for a whole year of school for one of Pastor John’s (Not including other basic needs)

Dear friends, we have an urgent, heartbeaking plea to share with you today.
There is a family in Pakistan. Their father, the brother of a Christian pastor, was unable to provide for his family due to the rising persecution of Christians in-country. Being Christian, their family continues to be extremely ostracized, unable to find jobs, or purchase basic necessities. Overwhelmed at being unable to take care of his family, he committed suicide, just a few days ago. Now, his widow and four older children are left alone, with no means of caring for themselves. The story has been in Pakistan newspapers (pictured above).
Ting Ministries has contacts in Pakistan who are going to visit the family with food and supplies – but in order to purchase the food, we need to raise $ 160 USD. Such a small amount to help in such a big way to comfort and encourage. If you feel led to give to help this family, please:
Give online: www.paypal.me/Tingministries

Praise for Bangladesh: A Big Announcement!

Recently, Ting Ministries was blessed with a donation from generous friends, whom we met through Christian Alliance for Orphans. Thanks to their gift and support of Ting Ministries, we have a very big announcement to share with you!

We have enough funds to: build the children’s home, support the Pastors’ families for a year, and buy a motorbike! We are so grateful for your support, and thought you might like to hear Pastor James’s thanks as well:

Praise God! Praise God! Praise God! Hallelujah! God is good all the time, all the time God is so good! Thank you so much for good news! Our God is a living God and Almighty and faithful God. He answered our prayers in His perfect timing! To God be the glory! I really give to thanks to [the donor family] for donating everything to God. This is GREAT and AMAZING! God will bless them abundantly and we will be keeping on praying for them.”

Meet Rafi: "I have a dream to be a doctor….but my dream will never come true"

Meet Rafi! This young boy dreams of being a doctor one day, but because he has to help his family in the fields, he worries his dream to help others will never come true. Read his testimony from Bangladesh.  
Testimony:
“My name is Rafi. I am 12 years old. I am the youngest child in the family. I have two brothers and two sisters. They all are already married. My father has a crops field (slash and burn cultivation). I spend my whole day in the crops field and help my father. I studied up to grade two before but since my father is very poor, he could not send me to school in the town, though he still wants me to study very much. I have a dream to be a doctor someday. But I can never be a doctor with spending the whole day in the harvest, and my dream will never come true. I am very sad that I could not continue my studies anymore. I think may be working in the harvest field and spending my whole life in the bush is my fate. I also love to play with my friends a lot. My favorite sport is Volleyball. But I do not have time to play . Since morning to evening, I have to help my parents. My parents love me very much.
I am a very lonely boy. Though I have some friends in the village, I could seldom spend time and play with my friends, because I always need to work. I believe in Jesus Christ. Jesus is God and my Savior. My parents are not yet believers. I came to know Jesus Christ through our pastor. I want to study more and want to learn more about Jesus. In the future I want to become a evangelist teacher so that I can teach and tell about Jesus to those who do not believe in Jesus.”
