In Case You Missed It – Recap of Our Night for Orphans with the Celtic Martins!

In case you missed it…


Ting Ministries Presents

The Celtic Martins & A Voice for Orphans


A big thank-you is extended to The Celtic Martins for coming to share their talents with Ting Ministries and the audience. Keep reading to see a short video of their performance! 

Executive Director of Ting Ministries, Brian Carpenter, shared about God’s Word and the orphan. Graduated from seminary with his Masters in counseling, Brian has a passion for fulfilling the calling of James 1:27 – the core verse of Ting Ministries. He believes that getting into the Word is the key to a transformed life in Christ and that is what allows us to care for the Least of These.

Hannah and Sasha smile for a selfie! Sasha spoke about issues of identity in adopted children and families and the healing Christ can bring to these questions. She also sang and closed the night with a dramatic prose performance of The Boy from Baby House 10. This is the story of a boy with Cerebral Palsy who was adopted from Russia, by John Lahutsky. Check out and follow her on her blog: www.natalyacarpenter.blogspot.com

Director Stephanie Carpenter with Hannah and Ellianna. Stephanie spoke about Ting Ministries’ work in Bangladesh, the Philippines, Ukraine, Bulgaria and more. To learn about current needs and how you can help, please see Our Projects.  One of our top projects right now is to build an orphanage in Bangladesh. There are currently 30 village children who have nowhere to go and the cost to build a place where they can sleep, eat, and go to school is less than 5,000 dollars! Our partners have also asked for help to purchase a motorbike for safe travel, and pastor sponsorships.

Learn how you can help Ting Ministries’s Christmas Child Gift Project. We need outfits, warm gloves and shoes! You can sign-up in the spreadsheet here.

Thank you to our friends in Bangladesh who shared their love for Ting Ministries halfway across the world! 

Here’s a short clip of the performance by The Celtic Martins. Enjoy!
Thank you again to all who came out in support and to learn more about Ting Ministries and the plight of the orphan. Thank you for everyone who helped in set-up, clean-up and providing desserts!

God Bless!

Congrats Grad!

In the time of graduations and commencements, we have one more grad to congratulate around here! Hannah “Annie” had a graduation party in her class! 

She has quite a story–from an aging out orphan in China to an orphan advocate in the US. Please take the time to really look at these two pictures. The first is Annie in China, before she knew she had a family coming for her. The second was taken about a year later. 



When Ting Ministries says family can transform a child–this is why. Look at that smile! Hannah is super smart. She is already understanding and speaking English while maintaining her Chinese! When Ting Ministries says every child deserves a family–this is why. We rushed to China just in time for Hannah. If we hadn’t, she would have aged out, never knowing the love of a family, never going to school, and never having opportunities to be a voice for orphans–including her two sisters waiting in China, Brittan and Hope. Can you please consider helping Brittan and Hope to have the same opportunities as Hannah? Please go to www.youcaring.com/return2china to learn more, donate, and share their story. Hannah is home now because people came alongside us to make sure she made it. Now, Hannah wants to make sure the same happens for her sisters.

Congratulations Hannah! We can’t wait to see the big plans the Lord has for your life.
