In Pakistan, we praise God for His faithful provision of a motorbike for our ministry partners! Thanks to a special supporter for making this possible! A motorbike will enable our partners to travel much faster and more safely to ministry locations – that they have previously been traveling to on foot.
Ongoing Need: The pastor who received the motorbike has rented an apartment for him and his family in vicinity of Ting Ministries’ medical care outreach base. This will allow families receiving medical care through the efforts of Ting Ministries to more easily receive support and pastoral care. Rent will cost $150/month! If any of our supporters would feel called to ease the burden of Pastor Daniel* (not real name) by helping to cover the cost of rent, it would be huge blessing to us and Pastor Daniel’s family, who current lives in poverty conditions. 1 Corinthians 12:26 says, “And if one member suffers, all the members suffer with it; or if one member is honored, all the members rejoice with it.” This is an incredible opportunity to come directly alongside our persecuted brothers and sisters in Christ! It is even possible to split the cost between 2 or 3 supporters, for the cost of $75 or $50 per month! One-time gifts are appreciated as well. Would you prayerfully consider this opportunity today?
Pastor John* (name changed for protection) wrote to us with devastating news. He says:
“Pray for my home place. 2 bombs exploded yesterday killed 14 lives and wounded 28. Others are children. We are sending our aid soon. Pray for comfort and peace. Pray also for our team there. We are serving some of the poor kids there now.”
A terrorist group, ABU SAYAF, linked to Al Queda are responsible for the attack which killed and wounded 40+ innocent people, including the parents of the two children pictured. Our Ting Ministries team is on the ground now, serving and helping respond to the emergency. We would like to raise an emergency campaign to send as many funds as we can directly to our partners to equip them to serve in the aftermath of this terrible event.
Please consider a donation to help with this emergency need! Every little bit helps and is so appreciated! 100% of your gift will go directly to our ministry partners and will be used for the specified need! Thank you and God Bless You!

Dear friends, our pastor in South Asia recently informed us the ministry team decided to purchase construction materials for hygienic toilets for the children’s home, as well as 2 solar panels and 20 benches for the classroom. These materials were badly needed for the health and productivity of the children’s lives at the home. In order to cover this cost for urgently needed supplies, the team has taken out a loan for $2000. This loan should be paid by by the end of February 2020. If 50 people gave just $40 in the beginning of the new year, we would have this cost covered quickly!
Would you please share this article and prayerfully consider helping to cover the cost of this loan? If you would like to give towards the cost of supplies, you may:

Thank you for partnering with us to meet these needs in the lives of the children we serve, to ensure basic dignity and rights to an education!
For those who may not know, Ting Ministries started its work in the Philippines.
We provided aid to one little girl, in one orphanage. That little girl is now Avigayil Carpenter, daughter of Brian and Stephanie. Because of her adoption, 30+ former Muslim street boys now have a home with Pastor John’s family. Over 1,300 people recieved medical care through last week’s outreach. Children and refugees were rescued from ISIS. Recognizing the difference Pastor John and our team are making, our TM Philippines team is constantly asked to take in more children wherever they go. It is our largest place of ministry, but remains heavily under-supported.
Many times, our team find people living in terrible situations and our hearts are broken. Pastor John went to visit the grandmother of two children his family has taken in.
There, they found a young girl with a child living in a makeshift tent, in squalor (pictured below). They have taken in these young kids, because their hearts were burdened for them and they listened to God’s call to fulfill James 1:27. “Pure and undefiled religion in the sight of God the Father is this: to look after orphans and widows in their distress and to keep oneself unpolluted by the world.”
Dear friends, we need your help to continue our ministry in the Philippines and reaching these children with the love of Christ. Prayer is a large part of how we can support one another in the body of Christ. However, meeting practical, tangible needs when confronted with them is an equally important part of our work for the children who are in these desperate situations.
“What good is it, dear brothers and sisters, if you say you have faith but don’t show it by your actions? Can that kind of faith save anyone? Suppose you see a brother or sister who has no food or clothing, and you say, “Good-bye and have a good day; stay warm and eat well”—but then you don’t give that person any food or clothing. What good does that do? So you see, faith by itself isn’t enough. Unless it produces good deeds, it is dead and useless.” ~ James 2:14-17
Pastor John and his wife need our help to continue the work the Lord has placed in front of them. Children and situations like these are not an exception – they are the norm. Ting Ministries has a heart to reach even more, and we plan to build a house in the property next to where Pastor John lives, so that he can continue to take in more children. Would you consider how you can help?
