Prayer Points February 2017

Everything by prayer… with thanksgiving (Philippians 4v6)

Thanks for: –

  1. That after a break of four years PTI has been able to recommence its training in French-speaking Burkina Faso. Peter Maclure and Ian Flanders reported that the conference went very well and that there was ‘great attentiveness and good participation, especially during the question and answer sessions’
  2. That the training in Thailand went very well. The first week was spent with the Barefoot doctors, a group of church workers from Myanmar who had come over to Thailand to do mainly medical training. Simon Percy was assisted by David Barr, a young and gifted new trainer from Northern Island. The training went very well and the Barefoot doctors have requested that in subsequent years they be given an additional week of Bible training
  3. For the second conference in Thailand with the Karen pastors where Simon was assisted by Johnny McClean, who is able speak Thai and was therefore able to communicate with many of the pastors for whom Thai is their second language. The participation by the pastors was very good and greatly aided by Johnny’s Thai
  4. For two men who are prayerfully considering joining PTI’s Board of Trustees

Prayer for: –

  1. Please pray for the Trustees as they meet later this month. Ask that the Lord might guide them as they oversee the work and as they seek to ensure that we comply with the relevant regulations
  2. Please pray for Merv and Steve as they conduct training in Mumbai and Mirzapur
  3. Please pray the Director of Ministry, Simon Percy, as he preaches and shares about the work at several different churches
  4. Please pray for a certain pastor from Myanmar who is seeking to get a visa to attend the Banner of Truth Ministers’ Conference in the UK in April
  5. Please pray that the Lord might provide PTI with the necessary funds it needs to allow the work to develop and grow over the next few years.

Thank you for your prayers they are a vital part of this work.

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.
