Prayer Points June 2018

Everything by prayer… with thanksgiving (Philippians 4v6)

Thanks for: –

  1. That the training in Ghana went well, Ivan reported that this has been his ‘best time of training in Ghana’.

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.

~ £5 will pay to send two books by email to a pastor

~ £15 will cover the cost of a pastor attending a single training conference

~ £250 will cover the total in-country travel and support costs for a trainer from the UK
