Christmas Eve Flooding in the Philippines – Urgent News!

Merry Christmas Eve everyone! Ting Ministries hopes you are having a blessed time with family, friends, and loved ones. Dear friends, today we got a message from our ministry partners in the Philippines – they, along with the local orphanage, were hit with extensive flooding in the last couple of days. Now, they need to prepare extra food and supplies for the children in the orphanage. Friends, we ask you tonight if you would be able to donate ANY amount to help the orphanage! Not only would it help meet the unexpected need, but imagine what a testament it would be to the Lord’s provision on Christmas Day! To help the orphanage and our TM Philippines family, go to the PayPal on the side of our website. (One for domestic and one for international friends of Ting Ministries). Please specify: Philippines Flooding Thank you all and Merry Christmas! May you be filled with the peace of Jesus Christ as we celebrate the birth of our Savior and Father to the Least of These. James 1:27 Isaiah 9:6

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.

Completed: Marawi Children’s Relief: Emergency Update (Part 2)

UPDATE 7/26/17: Our goal for the Children’s Relief is FULLY FUNDED! Thanks to everyone who gave, prayed, and shared. Stay tuned for more updates as Pastor Mark continues working in Marawi. 

To see the first update and pictures from Marawi please go to this post. 

A collection of updates from Pastor Mark on the ground in Marawi. 

Pastor Mark: “This is one of the kids and his name is Andrew* (not real name). He told me that he was brainwashed to join the ISIS. He wants to go with me to Zamboanga… oh… I really wanted to cry!”
Oh, how our hearts ache for Andrew. Please keep him in your prayers! Just imagine how many countless children there are in similar situations. 

The children asked Pastor Mark if they could have a party. Not part of the original plan, the team put together an instant party for these children who have been uprooted, traumatized, and on high-alert since the ISIS attack. Here you can see what Pastor Mark is seeing: children finally being children again in Marawi.
The children Pastor Mark is helping Marawi fled their homes. Right now, they are living in tents and many of them did not even have a pair of underwear. Can you imagine? They were so happy to just receive one new pair of underwear. 


580 dollars is needed to reach our goal – so every child can be helped by the relief program and recieve food, clothing, toys, etc. If you want to give a gift of love to these children, who have been displaced and/or orphaned by ISIS, you can: 1. Use the PayPal on the side of our website. 2. Send a check to Ting Ministries, 904 State Drive, Lebanon PA 1702. Thank you dear friends! You are making a world of difference for these children.

Completed: Marawi Children’s Relief: Emergency Update: Please Share!

UPDATE 7/26/17: Our goal for the Children’s Relief is FULLY FUNDED! Thanks to everyone who gave, prayed, and shared. Stay tuned for more updates as Pastor Mark continues working in Marawi.

Below are just some of the pictures sent by Pastor Mark who wrote: “We are having a children’s party for the traumatized children. This is not actually part of our agenda but when we talk to the children… they asked us if we can have a children’s party for them so we prepared an instant children’s party for them…”

Dear friends, very late last night we had an emergency need from Pastor Mark. He and the team were going down for children and youth relief in Marawi and were shocked to learn their preparations for 300 children were nowhere close to the 700 that awaited them. While they have started the relief already, they need 580 dollars to ensure all the children can recieve a meal, enew unnderwear, clothing, toys etc. Thank you to our one donor so far! There are some particularly wrenching stories Pastor Mark sent us, which will share throughout the day, as putting them all together would not do them justice.

Please look through the pictures and if you want to give a gift of love to these children, who have been displaced and/or orphaned by ISIS, you can: 1. Use the PayPal button on the side of our website. 2. Send a check to Ting Ministries, 904 State Drive, Lebanon PA 1702. Thank you dear friends! You are making a world of difference for these children.
