Flying Zhong Home – Meet 3 Sisters Bringing Home Their Brother, One Card at a Time!

Read the awesome story of the Kelley family, friends of Ting Ministries, whose daughters put together an artwork fundraiser to bring home their brother from China! Zhong is the best friend of one of their daughters who was adopted from China last year! This is their third China adoption but first adoption fundraiser – so let’s share the word and some encouragement! Check out some of their artwork below and visit their website to see more!

The Story

“Zhong’s three sisters, Grace, Ruthie & Mackenzie, have been working hard on creating a set of Christmas cards and greeting cards in an effort to help bring their new brother home! Our goal is to raise enough money for all of Zhong’s plane tickets home […] then, if the Lord wills, we can also work on paying toward all the other adoption expenses we owe and upcoming travel expenses.”

The Artwork:

“All of the watercolors & stamped backgrounds were created by Ruthie, our 13 year old, & Grace our 8 year old who has cerebral palsy (mentioning her CP as I’m super pleased with her artistic efforts despite her challenges with hand coordination) and then Mackenzie, 22, added her hand calligraphy to all the cards […]”

See the full product gallery on their website here!

“Envelopes are included. We are taking pre-orders for two weeks before printing so that we can get exactly what you want and not have too many extras of one kind or another. We will work hard to have the cards available to pick up and/or shipped to you by Thanksgiving.”

The Kelley girls are selling Christmas cards, greeting cards, birthday cards, thank yous, get well soon cards and MORE!

Guest Artist: From a Fellow Adoptive Mother, Gallery Artist, and Children’s Book Illustrator

“Cady Driver, a fellow adoptive mom, who is a professional artist in North Carolina, is sharing her prints with me to add to our fundraiser!!! She already sold enough of her beautiful watercolors on antique hymnal prints to fully fund her entire China adoption expenses, so now she wants to bless others! She allowed me to select 5 of her bird hymnal prints and is having her printer ship the prints directly to me at printing cost. Cady is not taking a dime. Cady is a gallery artist and children’s book illustrator and she wants to give God the glory for her talent and bless others with it. When Cady learned about the girls’ card fundraiser, she offered to let us also make available her gorgeous hymnal prints! These can be easily framed in an inexpensive 8×10 frame or matted or floated in a larger frame. These make beautiful gifts!

You can see more hymnal prints on their website here!

“The hymnal prints are coming from North Carolina and will take about 1.5 weeks turn around once I tell the printer how many we need…. so I should have those ready for you to pick up first week of Dec. For shipped prints, I would expect them to arrive to you during the second week of December.”

Philippines, street children

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!

Encouraging Update from Pastor “James” in South Asia

An encouraging update from Pastor “James” in South Asia:

Note: Names and pictures of pastors or others are not shared for their protection and safety. God is good all the time, all the time God is so good. We really praise God for His abundantly blessings giving to us and for His guidance in the ministry.

We visited villages for sharing the gospel to those who have never heard about the word of God. Some people had joined at the sharing event and receptive for gospel and five people were accepted Jesus Christ as their Lord and personal Savior. Those who have accepted Christ they invited us again to go to their villages. We are praying to go in their villages again and sharing the gospel. Please join us in prayer for those villages to know who is Lord of lords and King of kings.

The house churches are doing fine with their ministry activities and daily lives. They are leading by turns in their ministry activities such as home visit, prayer meeting, bible studies.We are praying we will be able to visit those churches who still need more for teaching, so we may go and spend more time with them for teaching and practices.

Children in South Asia attend Sunday School

Recently, we prayed for four women and one child. Two of them are healed from their sicknesses in the name of Jesus of Nazareth! Six believers were baptized!

We also had one day church leadership seminar for men and women. The theme was: “Follow my example, as I follow the example of Christ” (1 Cor 11:1). 25 leaders were present. The seminar went well. The leaders were learned & experienced many things on seminar which they said that they can do in our respective fields. Please pray for them that they may teach in their villages what they have learned from the seminar.

At the children’s home, everyone is doing fine with their studies. They are all growing day by day in their learning and daily lives. They are experiencing about the love of God’s. We praise God for providing for a home & schooling. We thank you so much for what you have been doing for us and His Kingdom.

Theresa’s Testimony: My Heart Changes

Theresa* from South Asia shares her testimony, after attending an evangelism event arranged by Ting Ministries’ team members. (*Not real name).

“We are all in Buddhist before. My husband had died 5 years ago. I have fours and two daughters. They all are married. I am living to my youngest son’s house. I take care of my niece, nephew and help in their house works right now. My sons and daughters have already accepted Christ about 2 years ago. My sons and daughters were most of the time shared me about God’s love and eternal life. But I never believe and accept it. Since we were born from Buddhist family and my husband also very devoted in his belief. We so much believe and rely on superstitions.

Since then I realized that I am a sinner, only Jesus Christ can save us and He is the only way to enter the Kingdom of God. After the end of the event, I go back to my house and I was shared how of how my heart changes.

The evangelist team organized an evangelism program at our village in last month. The evangelist team all of invited us to join at the event. We all the villagers have joined at the evangelism. The evangelist team had started with prayer, praise and worship songs then they started sharing the gospel. At the evangelism program, the topic was “How to enter the Kingdom of God and salvation”. When the Pastor was shared about God, His creation, fall of man, sin and salvation. His message was so powerful and touched in my heart and my body was trembling that time. Especially John 14: 6.  “I am the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me”. This verse was really touched in my heart and through this, I completely changed my hearts during the event. Besides, not only this verse, but also in other verses and the Pastor’s message.  Since then I realized that I am a sinner, only Jesus Christ can save us and He is the only way to enter the Kingdom of God. After the end of the event, I go back to my house and I was shared how of my heart changes to my son’s family. My son’s family was welcoming for my changed life. They said to me when we have shared you about the word of God, you didn’t want to listen but now you listen and accepted it. This is perfect timing to know Him. We no longer are divided for faith in our family and now we are one family in Christ in our house. Praise the Lord!!!

I thank to the Lord and the evangelism team for sharing us great good news and giving me a new life. Also thanks again to Jesus’ for giving His blood for saving us from our sin. Now I am joining at bible study, prayer meeting, sharing the gospel to the neighbors and home visits. I really enjoyed those activities which has given me peace, joyful heart, love, compassion, and sympathy to others. Please pray for my health and His blessings.

Thank you so very much.
