Ting Ministries in the Daily Item Newspaper!

Ting Ministries wants to move our headquarters to a bigger location...and we need your help!

 Because Ting Ministries is a locally based organization, our family works out of our home and it means wherever we go, the ministry goes. So, a bigger house means multiple benefits: not only more room for my sisters to do therapy and use equipment and more room for more children to come home, it also means added office space and privacy for adoption counseling, both of which are not accomodated in our current location. 

You may remember I set up a fundraiser at www.youcaring.com/surprisehome. Did you know our story appeared in The Daily Item on Christmas Day? Below are pictures of the article While it's no longer a surprise the page is still up and the need is still great! I hope you will take time to check back in on it today. Thank you to all who have been praying, hoping and waiting with Ting Ministries!

Angelina's Story

Some of you may know Angelina's story. She was adopted in 2012 at 5 and a half years old from Pleven, Bulgaria. 
Lina in Bulgaria

She weighed 12 pounds and couldn't hold up her head. Now, over four years later, she is full of life and loves to play! This Christmas, she stood next to her sister Rachele for photos!

Seed and "Friend in Dnepropetrovsk..." One Year Later

Earlier this afternoon, I saw that a year ago today, I shared a photo of our Seed in Ukraine right after she was rescued. Seed was hit by a train and got her paw stuck in the tracks, so it needed to be amputated. 


It is hard to believe she was ever that small! Now, one year later, she is a big, affectionate pup who loves her family! 


What a difference...from the cold streets of Ukraine to a warm livingroom in the United States. Please visit "Friend" - helping stray animals in Dnepropetrovsk to learn more about animal rescue in Ukraine and email them at: shelter.friend.ukraine@gmail.com to learn more. You may also like to visit "Friend in Dnepropetrovsk's" website here. Our friend Marina who is part of "Friend in Dnepropetrovsk" helped us get Seed home and is passionate about animal rescue and finding desparately needed families for strays. What a difference one year can make in the lives of orphans, children and animals alike! Happy New Year from Ting Ministries!

The Look In His Eyes

Today, we recieved this photo of a little boy from our ministry partners in the Philippines, a pastor and his wife who said: "I saw this little boy tonight with his sister[...] I accidentally met this kid who was begging us about food to eat..We were touched." Please keep this boy in your prayers. In 2017, Ting Ministries wants to start expanding our work with street children. If you would like to help this little boy specifically, or other children saved from the streets, message us here or email us at tingministries@comcast.net

A Filipino Christmas Wish...

Filipino tribal children wish you a Merry Christmas! Did you know Ting Ministries works in the Philippines? Our ministry partners visited a leporosy colony a few days ago. They brought rice, supplies and gifts with them! Our partners also spent some time with the children in the colony and taught them a song in English! If you are interested in helping our friends in the Philippines, let us know at tingministries@comcast.net or message Ting Ministries on Facebook!

Needle-less to Say

Guest Post from Indescribable Gift of Joy

Last night we chased Daddy out of the house to plan a surprise-- to sing his favorite Christmas song! Forty takes later including: hair pulling, dogs stealing Christmas ornaments, a sister picking her nose through a whole video, a cat bursting through the sign, another sister picking up the sign and hitting us on the head, Avi crying at my singing and Mom trying to snap some Christmas pictures in between... after all that, we finally got one video! Dad came home very curious as to why there were pine needles all over the floor (we had moved the tree and put it back). Needle-less (pun intended) to to say, it was a very eventful two hours! Please SHARE this video and to learn about our even bigger surprise to bless my Dad this Christmas, go to: www.youcaring.com/surprisehome
