Prayer Points November 2017

Everything by prayer… with thanksgiving (Philippians 4v6)

Thanks for: –

  1. The excellent conferences that recently took place in Cuba; especially for how well the pastors responded to the training.
  2. The good opportunity PTI had to share about its work at the recent Grace Baptist Mission gathering in London. It is good to be working with others who are committed to mission.
  3. The twenty two pastors and their churches who have been involved with the training this year, eight of whom went for the first time this year.

Prayer for: –

  1. Ken McIntosh and James Sercombe as they conduct the second year of the training at Addis and Jima in Ethiopia.
  2. Keith and Tim as they conduct their first PTI training in Asia. Please pray that it goes very well, and that they are kept safe.
  3. For Andre and Maciek and later Paul and Ian as they conduct further training in Myanmar. Pray that the Lord would help them to identify those who could become potential in-country trainers.
  4. Merv and Rob as they return later this month to continue the training in Jaipur and the Andaman Islands.
  5. The Lord to provide the additional money needed to allow the work of PTI to continue to grow in 2018. We have several trainers and hosts in new locations, in both existing and new countries, who are eager to begin, once we have the funds.

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.
