Laptops Needed

As you know the Covid -19 virus has closed down many opportunities to gather in groups. This has also happened to PGN partner Divitia Gratiae University (DGU). Students who are training in the ministry are now restricted from much group learning. Even the computer lab that allow students to study on a university computer is closed. In speaking with the leadership of DGU, they say that the greatest need of the students is laptop computers. Laptops allow students to take classes online and do research for their assignments. We have researched and purchased 15 refurbished Dell Latitude laptops with software to send to UDG. The cost of the laptops, packaging, shipping, and customs will be $6,000. Your help is needed now. We are asking that 15 people buy one of the laptops and we will ship it to the university. The total cost to get one of these computers into the hands of a grateful student is $325.

THE "BREAD OF LIFE"

Moldova

The “Bread of Life” church is a young church located in Firladeni, Moldova. This church has launched two projects in which it needs support: 1) Feeding children from low-income families; 2) Construction of a sports and gaming complex for children, teenagers and youth.

Transportation for PGN representative

Moldova

PGN now has leadership staff in Chisinau, Moldova. They are really taking the load off our American staff as they represent PGN to our partners in Eastern Europe and Central Asia. They have multiple assignments and responsibilities and travel is a necessity. PGN want to assist them with their car need. Cost $2400

New Student Tuition

Divitia Gratiae University

Every year we have many students who come from very poor families who are unable to pay their portion of tuition. $300 will cover tuition for one first year student.

Winter Clothing

Divitia Gratiae University  

Many students attending the university come from warm weather countries (like Uzbekistan and Tajikistan) and are in immediate need of winter clothing. $150 will buy a student one coat and one winter outfit.

Transportation

Tajikistan

Many of our Central Asia partners are itinerate pastors who need to travel from city to city and village to village to run their ministry. Public transportation is extremely slow and and uneliable. We want to assist these pastors with used but reliable transportation. One car cost from $1200 to $2400 depending on what’s available and location.

Discipling Teens to Reach Teens

As a recent graduate of Divitia Gratiae University, Shirinmoh has started a ministry teaching teenage girls the skills they need to reach their peers. Most of these girls have experienced violence and abuse from unbelieving fathers, brothers, and other family members. Every Saturday for two months, she meets for four hours with each girl.  During this time, they study the Bible, pray together, and work on a craft they can use in their ministry. She appreciates that DGU prepared her for this ministry. She will be expanding this training of teens to other churches as God provides the funding. Cost: $100 each month

Teaching and Leadership Development

Tajikistan

PGN has been asked to provide a series of pastor’s training seminars to Tajik pastors in their own language. Luckily, we have PGN staff who speak Tajik and are able to do this training. Currently this training has been done through Zoom and translated to the pastors. Cost $1500 per training.

Summer School of World Missions

Divitia Gratiae University

During the month of June PGN assist Divitia Gratiae University with the training of Central Asian pastors. These pastors are selected from churches and brought to the university. They are provided with travel, housing, meals and materials for the training. PGN sponsors many pastors and sends teaching staff to provide high quality of training. PGN cost for the training is $6000 each year.

Sharing God’s Love One Bag at a Time

Gulnoza makes bags that say “God’s Love” and distributes them to village schools. With permission from the school director, she and her volunteers travel from school to school sharing about God’s love. They give each girl a handmade book bag to remind her of God’ Love. Gulnoza writes, “ I am very grateful to God for the opportunity to share with them that GOD IS LOVE, GOD IS ALWAYS WITH YOU, GOD LOVES YOU, GOD WON’T LEAVE YOU, and GOD FORGIVES ALWAYS, which is the goal of my visits.  Please pray for us as we know most people here resent the name of God, because they believe and say ALLAH. We continue to need about $130 a month to purchase the materials for this project.

Computer Need

PGN Field Partner

Mirzabek is a graduate of Divitia Gratiae University and is now attending Oxford working on his Phd. He is receiving this training to become a professor to teach pastors in Central Asia. He is in need of a newer computer. Cost $1000

Nafanail Ministry Training Program

PGN Field Partner

Tojinisso Odinaeva – Osh, Kyrgyzstan

Last year I went to EXILE TRAINING MINISTRY to Cyprus for three month and then I went to Kyrgyzstan for my internship.  After my internship I decided to stay in Osh and help with the same program in Cyprus but the name is sound different.  So here we called the program NAFANAIL (gift of God) TRAINING MINISTRY. We are a missional community that trains local believers for ministry in Central Asia. We are a family, a brotherhood committed to Christ, to each other and to a way of life.

We are not a school. In a school, the goal is to impart information to the student. We think of the commitment we make to one another as the context and the content of the most important part of equipping that we do. It is in the context of a community that character is grown. By living together, we learn the disciplines of generosity, humility, forgiveness, reconciliation, vulnerability, sacrifice, and service. We are also confronted with our own inadequacies in an environment where we can address them in a healthy way. Community isn’t just a bonus or a by-product of what we do. It is the substance of our work. Our first training session begins January 31, 2021. We already have four students enrolled and hope tp have twelve enrolled by the time we start.  

So, I need personal financial and prayer support for two years. Every month cost $300, for housing, meals transportation and materials. Any gift of monthly or onetime support will be greatly appreciated.

Youth Center Evangelistic Training Ministry

Salim Dosov

Tashkent, Uzbekistan

Cost: $400 per month

We have a team of college graduate from DGU working in Kyrgyzstan reaching out to build relationships with non-believers. Our goals for this Youth Center is to bring these young people to Christ by sharing our lives with them. We also want to help DGU graduates in finding ministry which is difficult for them when they return home. Youth Centers help keep graduates busy and keep them all together, they are not scattered around, not alone, but together doing one ministry. They support and encourage each other. 

Field partner in Uzbekistan

Bakha

Monthly Support Need $100

When I went to study in Moldova, I had the only goal of learning and gaining knowledge of theology and coming to serve where no one wants to come. My entire life has had the same goal, to serve God. I thank God that He has given me strength to do His work. My immediate goal is to prepare ten (or more) leaders who will take over and staff this ministry. This will allow me to expand our ministry to other regions of Uzbekistan.

I am a coworker with Christ and at this time He has called me to save and disciple souls right here. Then train these believers to lead God’s new churches being planted in Uzbekistan.
