Brian and Stephanie Carpenter of Lebanon County are an incredible duo who have dedicated their lives and family to caring for orphans. They are the adopted parents of 6 girls, all of whom have special needs. The girls are from the ages of 7 to 17 and come from all over the world: Bulgaria, Ukraine, Taiwan, Russia, and the Philippines. To hear more about their story, listen to their recent interview on WDAC.
We recently received an update from the Carpenters about their daughter Ellianna who was born profoundly deaf. Do you remember the snowy Wednesday before Thanksgiving? Well that was the first day that they turned on Ellianna’s Cochlear Implant. Imagine their surprise and joy as her dad, Brian, said her name and she turned in response. Praise God!
“The LORD has given Ellianna a gift and the little girl that could once only hear with her heart, as her name “Ting” means, can now hear with her ears when the implant is switched on! We are praising the LORD for the gift He has given her and us! Continue to pray for her and her world of speech and hearing! We know that she is and will continue to be a voice for the voiceless! God has big plans for her life!”
On Saturday, December 6 from 11 a.m. – 4 p.m., come meet the Carpenter Girls of Ting Ministries and learn more about the work Brian and Stephanie are involved with at their Christmas Vendor Fair Fundraiser. The event will be held at Fairland Brethren in Christ Church, 529 W. Penn Ave. (Rt. 422) Cleona, PA. Along with a bake sale, there will also be a number of vendors such as Mary Kay, Tastefully Simple, Golden Canyon, Discovery Toys, Kinder Music, and more…
