Philippines Ministry Update: Shoes, Instagram and More

We at Ting Ministries wanted to send another big thank you to the people who donated money for our shoes project in the Philippines. Thanks to your generosity, Pastor Mark was able to purchase shoes for all the street children! 




Also, if you have been following Ting Ministries on Facebook, you might have seen our other need. Pastor Mark's mother passed away last week. The hospital would release her body to the family until they paid their fees. With the help of Ting Ministries and our supporters, we were able to send money for Pastor Mark. Please continue to keep the family in your prayers at this time, as his mother will be dearly missed. However, we can rejoice knowing that she is with the Lord in heaven!

A final note: Ting Ministries is excited to announce that we have launched an Instagram page! Please check it out and follow us here. Stay tuned for more exciting updates as we head into the summer!

Second Update! Immediate Need: Shoes for Street Kids in the Philippines!

***We have raised enough money to buy shoes for all the street children! Thank You Everyone!

Often we have been asked of what value is a child with severe special needs.

 Our precious little Avi is so loved and the princess of our family. Her life is priceless and because of her life Ting Ministries work in the Philippines was started. 

She is the reason...her life is bringing many lives to come to know love and the saving power of Jesus Christ. She was adopted out of the orphanage in Zamboanga and the region where we now minister. Yet, Ting Ministries cannot do it alone--we need your prayers and your help!

 Our partners and the pastor of the church in Zamboanga sent photos of the nearly 50 street kids and indigenous children that recently attended the 3 day Bible School camp. They are continuing to come to the pastor and his family and church. They have nothing. They have no home, no food, no shoes! Can you help us meet the immediate need to buy them shoes? We have many.more plans of what needs to be done, but today--it is shoes!

We saw some old friends...Annie was blessed to see Kyla from ICC( International China Concern)!
To say she was excited would be a huge understatement. ..I think the entire hall heard her continuous shrieks of joy!

No automatic alt text available.



Our God is the defender of the orphan and He writes beautiful stories. Ting Ministries has been partnering with Agape Hands - Christian ministry of Calvary Chapel Hemet, California.
This ministry and these loving women knit and sew for the.orphan. During the winter Ting ministries shipped the socks, hats, mittens, etc to other ministry partners for orphans. Agape hands recently finished a shipment of pillowcase dresses. The dresses are beautiful and we are working on developing an orphan program where the child that receives the new dress made with love will find a sponsor to send them to school. Recently 49 street children attended Christian camp in Zamboanga run by our partners. It is our hope and prayer to send all 49 to school.( Program called " Sponsor a Dress" more coming as we develop the.program...and yes..boys will be included but need a different program name and new item)
I asked our partner in California to pray for us as we headed to CAFO 2017 to be presenters in two workshops. I told Colleen we were headed to Nashville. Colleen then told me her grandson was going to college in Nashville and he found a church he loved and he was working at the church - Brentwood Baptist! Turns out it was the church for CAFO 2017 and her grandson was working CAFO for the church!
Today we had the.opportunity and blessing to.meet Colleen's grandson! Two ministries from opposite coasts join together.

Ting Ministries has a Vision of a WORLD WITHOUT ORPHANS.
Brian (executive director of Ting Ministries) shared our vision at CAFO 2017 during the two sessions, where he was a presenter. It is possible to have a World without orphans.
We need to be in the Word of God and we need not only to follow the first part of James 1:27 but also the second part which states " ...and to keep oneself from being polluted by the world."

This is adoption!
This is JAMES 1:27 being lived out daily without fanfare or notice by others...but our Father in Heaven sees and one day will say well done my good and faithful servant.
- William Wilberforce
"This world does not need interested observers - it needs INCURABLE FANATICS."
Help Hope and Brittan have the same opportunity to be loved!

Have You Seen?

Have you seen a child dying from lack of food and human contact?
I would like to show you the first photos of Hope that I saw...when her life did not matter to anyone around her. I can't until she is safely home as a Carpenter girl.
I can show you Lina and Olyvia when they were dying a slow lonely death in Pleven, Bulgaria and Ukraine. You can visit other blogs and see similar stories and photos from such blogs as Maya's Hope, Ransom for Israel and The Blessing of Verity. When you have seen and when you have held a child like Lina and Olyvia you can never be the same.
When we saw -how could we turn away. We said yes not knowing the future. We serve a God who holds our future in His hands.
His Word tells us to care for the orphan (James 1:27) and to speak up for those who can not speak for themselves ( Proverbs 31: 8-9).
When you know Hope's story and Brittan'story - How could we turn away. We have been given so much and their lives matter to God and to us. They are lives with a hope and a future.
We will continue to be their voice and a voice for orphans around the world.
Will you join us?

These Two Matter Too

These two matter too...

The Harnish family returned from China with their Annie and Wesley just as we were leaving for our Annie! It is all because of Kelly, a missionary couple, some wheelchairs and God's miracles and timing that we even know of Hope! She had no paperwork and was not even listed to be adopted - she was a life that did not matter but now she has a name and a family racing to bring her home. Orphans lives matter! Show your support by at.least sharing!
God bless each and everyone that hears the cry of the orphan!

Visit the Harnish family YouCaring here: https://www.youcaring.com/harnishdaleandkelly-811419

Thank you to all that have supported Annie and also Hope and Brittan...they need your support!

Big, Big Announcement...from Bible Orphan Ministry

Ting Ministries is pleased to announce we have officially partnered with Bible Orphan Ministry! Please read the post below, from our friends at Bible Orphan Ministry about this new partnership. We are excited to see what the Lord has planned for our organizations.

Guest Post:

Well. It is officially! Bible Orphan Ministry have started to partnering with a wonderful American charity, Ting Ministries! Yay! Awesome blessing!!!

We have PayPal and funds can be sent via check too! On DONATE page you can find more info.
All donations tax deductible and 100% goes to BOM! Isn`t it amazing???
We are super excited!!!! God is soooo good all the time!!!

I'll start from the beginning. A few weeks ago, we were informed that we can no longer use PayPal. Oh no!!! Again??? As you know exactly one year ago, we had this problem. But thank God everything was decided by God's grace! We are so grateful to the person, who helped BOM with this issue. Our gratitude never will be enough!!!

So, when we were informed this news. I was ok. But the next day, the fear came into my heart. Oh, this sinful and weak flesh... Hundreds of questions were spinning in my head. What to do? Where to find the way? What, if this will not work out for us and many more. I felt so helpless. But I kept repeating in my heart, I should trust my God, it means He is preparing something special... I always remembered one of my favorite Bible verse (Romans 8:28)"And we know that all things work together for good to them that love God, to them who are the called according to his purpose."  I should trust, even it is difficult, even if there is no hope and no way out, I should trust my Saviour. Even it is not easy But I should. The next day, the perfect peace of God and calm filled my heart. I am so thankful Him! I "knew" that our Heavenly Father has prepared something special. But what??? I did not know what to do, where to write... There were some thoughts, but I felt that this is not what God wants for us... 

Thus we have for you a great announcement! :) We are so very excited that it seems that my heart will jump out of my chest and I want jump with joy!It happened so fast that I can not believe it! My fear about some of the issues have been completely in vain! That's what I was afraid or worried, God showed me mercy and grace. Through small details I see the hand and will of God in this matter! This has just blown my mind how God works!!! We are thrilled and so excited to work with our new partners and friends, Ting Ministris!

Dear friends, if you have any difficulties with the health, at work, housing, family, friends, neighbors, children, anywhere. Just trust Him! All work together for good!!! Our Heavenly Father is good and loving! He's an amazing alive God!!! We are so blessed and  humble to serve Him!!! Just tears. Tears of joy are streaming down my cheeks from the goodness and mercy of the Lord Jesus. My love to all ♥♥♥

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!
