Mercy would like to maintain the skeleton of the disicipleship programme and facilitating the fulfillment of it. To see that all of the staff, centre leaders and teachers have the basic knowledge of child development.
Peter would like to see more centres multiplied around Telangana, first, with each one having a priority of holistic development and self-sustaining under its particular church. This requires each partner and teacher to have a burden and see the value of children’s ministry.
