In order to help and encourage our supporters to pray regularly for the work, PTI produces a (usually) bi-monthly Prayer and Newsletter. Each issue gives an update on any recent training conferences or activities, comments and news from some of the men who have been helped and prayer points for forthcoming conferences or other important matters.

Newsletters are free. You may subscribe by email by clicking here.

Giving to PTI

PTI is a UK registered charity. 100% of its funding comes from its supporters, whether churches or individuals.

Often, the only factor holding back the expansion of the ministry is shortage of money. If you are therefore in sympathy with what PTI believes and what it is seeking to achieve, do please consider giving to the work.
