Tin Tin’s Day – Help the Philippines Celebrate

Update from February 14th, 2020: Ting Ministries sends a big thank you to those who helped us exceed our $400 goal for Tin Tin’s party in the Philippines! Updates to follow!

Update from February 10th, 2020: We are halfway there! Thank you to the generous donor who gave $200 dollars towards Tin Tim’s celebration! Can you help us reach our goal?

Dear friends can you help us? Our pastor and friends in the Philippines are planning a day for Avi, or, as she is affectionately known in the Philippines – Tin Tin! February 27th, Tin Tin’s 13th birthday, will be a celebration of her life. Our Pastor in the Philippines is planning to gather many street children together. Our team will feed them and share the love of Jesus with them in Tin Tin’s honor! Her life is continuing to change countless lives. The street children who are coming to Tin Tin’s party are the same children who we wish to help through the construction of Tin Tin’s house! It is our deepest prayer that the children who come feel the love of Christ, develop a relationship with Him and our pastor’s family so Tin Tin’s house may be a home of safety and peace.

Tin Tin needs your help to raise $400 for the celebration! Can you help us reach this goal by next week?

Tin Tin knows Jesus is coming again! Can you picture her running through the streets of heaven, a parade of praises ringing behind her? May this video give you a glimpse! 

I know He’s coming again/ I know He’s coming again/ Yes, I know/ He’s coming again/ I know He’s coming again/ He’s coming again, He’s coming again/ Doo, doo, doo…/ We’ll keep on singing ’til He comes again/ Then we’ll sing some more/ We’ll keep on singing ’til He comes again/ Until we reach the golden shores/ We’ll keep on singing ’til He comes again/ Then we’ll sing some more…

Feeding Program – The Hope of Snacks in Alleyways

Our local team in the Philippines recently led a food outreach for vulnerable children and youth in the Philippines! Here are some of the pictures we received from our team. Just think: how easy it is for us to grab a snack from our full refrigerators or complain when we “just can’t find something good to eat!” Some of these children may have families. Others may live in between alleyways. The mini pack of snacks that they received from our team members may be their meal for the day.
 
Friends, our hearts hurt when we see such pictures and we yearn to do SO MUCH MORE for these precious children. But we can’t do it without you! Our feeding program in the Philippines is one of the most essential outreaches our team does on a regular basis. Would you consider supporting them for $20, $10, or even $5 dollars? Every little bit makes a difference and 100% of your donation will go directly towards on-the-ground ministry and make a difference for children like these!

Help the TM Children’s Home

*Help the Children’s Home in Bangladesh!*
Friends, you will recall in September 2018, we shared the joyous news that thanks to YOU, our faithful supporters, we were able to build a children’s home for homeless kids on the border of Bangladesh and Burma! This home and school now shelters and provides education for around ten children, with hopes to expand in the future.

In order to keep providing for the children in the care of the home, we currently need $500 to provide for food and resources in-country.

To give a gift towards this important ministry need, reaching orphaned and vulnerable children, practically, spiritually, and educationally:

Give a check: Ting Ministries, 29 East Poplar Street, Lebanon, PA 17042

Individual sponsors for children are also needed and appreciated! (Recommended amount: $30/month, partial sponsorships also available).

Thank you for helping us serve orphans in Bangladesh and around the world! God Bless!

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:

Mala’s Testimony: From TM Children’s Home

“I do not have my parents. My father and mother died when I was 7 years old. I could not remember this time in my mind because I was so small. My father was died of Malaria and over the year my mother died of dysentery .told my uncle’s. Since then I was staying at my uncle’s house and I thought that I am an unluckiest among the girl in this world because I do have father and mother. Sometimes I felt very lonely, because I do not have parents of my own.

My uncle’s family is very poor. Since we live in the remote part of our country, our lives are very difficult to survive here. Sometime we can eat food only one time in a day. When there is no food in our home we go to jungle to find plant root and cook or boil it.

I get up early in the morning to fetch water from the fountain and cook food. After that I go work in the fields with my uncle and aunt, helping to them in the fields the whole day as much as I can.
Since my uncle is very poor, our pastor sometimes collects used clothes from local church members and that’s all I have. I wore them until they torn or whole the year. If the clothes are wet I cannot change it. If my father and mother are still alive I can tell them that I need clothes and they could buy for me.

I would like to go to school very much but there are no any schools in the villages. Our pastor has already built a home for orphans; I am very excited to stay and study at the home! So that I may not face difficulties in my future life. (TM home and school below).

Thank you so much and pray for me. Mala.”
