Bombing in Southern Philippines: Children Among Those Killed & 28 Wounded!

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!

Update: Yasim’s Prosthetic is Funded!

UPDATE: August 20, 2020
Praise in Pakistan: Yasim’s Prosthetic is Fully Funded!
We’d like to send a special thank you to the Ting Minisistries’ supporter who made this possible! We are praising the Lord for another example of his faithful provision and are so blessed to know that Yasim* will receive the estimated cost for his prosthetic! We can’t wait for him to hear the news! A prosthetic will be life-changing, enabling him to work again. What an answer to prayer, for the Team Ting family, in Pakistan and the US!
Psalm 111:1-4: “Praise the Lord! I will thank the Lord with all my heart as I meet with his godly people. How amazing are the deeds of the Lord! All who delight in him should ponder them. Everything he does reveals his glory and majesty. His righteousness never fails. He causes us to remember his wonderful works. How gracious and merciful is our Lord!”

Dear friends, if you received our latest newsletter and addendum, you likely saw two needs we shared with you about a 23-year old amputee and a young girl in need treatment for a broken femur. We are blessed to be able to tell you that Liyana* (not real name, pictured below) has received the estimated funds needed for her femur to be treated by a doctor! Liyana is the daughter of a poor Christian family and she must work in a kiln with her parents. An accident at work left her unable to bear weight on her leg for FOUR years! Can you even imagine? We are praising God for His provision and we hope that Liyana will be able to receive the care she needs for her leg to heal properly!
In our summer newsletter, we also told you about Yasim* (not real name) who survived an automatic rickshaw collission but lost his leg as a result of the accident. Yasim needs a prosthetic leg at an estimated cost of $720. He would be so grateful to receive a prosthetic as it would enable him to be able to work again!
Would you prayerfully consider a financial gift to help Yasim, just as we were able to bless Liyana? We couldn’t continue ministry without our supporters! Thank you for your prayers and continued support – they are truly life-sustaining and making a difference around the world!
100% of your financial gift will go directly to ministry partners who are helping Yasim in-country!

Two Precious Children in a Desperate Situation

My heart is heavy for all those waiting in orphanages around the world. Some are waiting for their families to be able to travel to finally bring them home. Some have families praying for them and longing to have them home.
Most wait with no hope! As I type this I am holding our 5 year old from Stara Zagora, Bulgaria (featured cover photo.) I can not begin to imagine what her first 4 years were like and I can not imagine her in a crib alone and wasting away. Today she is thriving and developing a personality that is full of life and love! She is a gift from the Almighty God to our family.
I want to show you 2 little girls in a desperate situation. We have also adopted from the country they are currently living in. They both will age out soon meaning they will no longer be able to be adopted and the place they will transfer to is NOT GOOD!
Please get in touch with us at Ting Ministries and I will connect you to those that have more information regarding both girls. They are not sisters and do not need to be adopted together.

South Asia, Team Ting, update

Ministry Update from South Asia

 

Ministry Update from South Asia! We recently received a ministry update from our partners. Read and learn what the Lord is accomplishing through the Ting Ministries family and network in other countries and join us in prayer for these needs.
“Since the whole month of May was lockdown, we could not visit different villages enough to really involve them in ministry. But we were able to do evangelism in some villages. They are all Buddhists where we have shared the gospel in the village. They were receptive for gospel and asking us many questions about God. Some people were touched in their hearts and accepted Christ as their Lord and personal Savior. They were very much glad to hear about the word of God.
Leaders traveling through the jungle for ministry
We also planted a house church. The members have been doing what we have taught them to do and leading church services, bible studies, prayer meetings, home visits by turns. They have much unity in their respective activities. If they faced any difficulties in their activities, they helped each other.
Praise the Lord three souls were baptized!
Please continue to pray for the children at the children’s home. They needed more prayer for them so that God will provide all their needs and they may live and study in a good environment.
Please also continually pray for my daughter for recovering her sickness. She is very weak and couldn’t eat. We need a miracle from God for her healing.”
We are always strengthened in spirit and encouraged when we receive word from our partners around the world. We hope that you will also be uplifted by this update and encouraged to know how the Lord is still moving and working in these times of uncertainty! If you feel led to give so that ministry may continue in South Asia, please see the donation information below. Donations of just $15 (or more) are greatly appreciated for the children’s home. If designated, your gift will go directly to the physical and educational needs of the children living there. Thank you and may God Bless You with the Shalom of Messiah Yeshua!

Ministry Updates:

Here’s how Ting Ministries continues to serve around the world and proclaim the name of Jesus Christ!

  • The Philippines: Pastor “John” and his wife continue to minister to remote and vulnerable peoples who are receiving no aid otherwise. They believe more people will die of starvation than of any other means, given the current situation in the country. Please pray for protection of ministry, safe travels, and receptive hearts as they share the love of Christ. Pictured: Food outreach in the Philippines

  • Indonesia: Through the Carpenter’s former Compassion International sponsor child, Ting Ministries is reaching vulnerable and elderly individuals with food resources during the crisis. Continued prayers for provision, strength and protection appreciated. Pictured: Distributing food to families in-need

  • South Asia: Please continue to keep Pastor “James'” teenage daughter in your prayers. She is recovering well from a bout of illness, though she is still weak. We continue to have opportunities for sponsorships ($15/month). Please pray for provision for the children’s home in-country. There is a great need for teachers and cooks there, as well as for the growth and sustaining of women’s ministry. Pictured: Children from the children’s home singing praise and worship songs. Also: Ministry partners must make long treks through rugged terrain to share the Gospel and reach villages with basic supplies.

  • Romania: We are continuing to serve in partnership with Romanian animal rescuers and through them Ting Ministries is sharing the love of Jesus not only to abused animals but also some to needy souls. Our contacts were working to purchase a small home with a plot of land but do to the lockdown and fears amid the virus since the sale has fallen through. But out of the huge disappointment God is doing something better. We have been able to use a plot of land already owned by our contacts and tear down the ruined structure and begin rebuilding a small home. Most of the animals are already on the property now and the fencing is being fixed. 12 of the rescued puppies have been able to make it safely to the UK to their new families even though they had been delayed a month due to the lockdown in Romania. Since we are tearing down and rebuilding we now have 2 more families being blessed by Ting Ministries. Please add Marian and Mr. I and their families to your prayers as they are daily working on the tear down and rebuild. Marian was raised by his grandmother and is 21 and has no parents. Mr. I has 1 son who is 18 and his wife passed away. Pray that we can share the love of Jesus and the Gospel! Pictured: Marian working on rebuilding.

  • Ukraine: Please continue to pray for Bible Orphan Ministry as they minister to aging-out orphans and for Pastor Misha’s health. Pictured: Dinner with youth at the home of BOM

  • Pakistan: Pray for recent ministry developments, including student sponsorships, that have started to grow through local believers. Pictured: Believers worshipping in Pakistan
