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.

Mala’s Testimony: From TM Bangladesh 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.”

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:

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!

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.

Urgent Need for Philippines: School Fees and Continued Marawi Relief

You may remember us sharing a need a couple months ago about school fees for Ting Ministries’ children in the Philippines. Unfortunately, the need has not been met yet – and the children have started school already! They will not be able to stay in school if Pastor Mark cannot pay their fees. It is only 6 dollars a month for elementary school and 12 dollars for higher level education! Please consider if you can help these children, both former and current street kids, go to school – they are counting on you!
Also, Pastor Mark is heading back to Marawi to another evacuation center! In order to continue helping the displaced families and children, he needs our help to purchase supplies like clothing, food, and toys. 100% of Ting Ministries work depends on the faithfulness and generosity of our supporters! Even 5 dollars makes a difference! Please share and get the word out! Thank you!
The total cost for both these needs is: 2,250 dollars.
