Peter & Mercy Wiig
The vision of Shining Stars is to raise godly leaders by discipling children for the long-term through holistic, developmental programmes, run in partnership with like-minded churches and/or individuals. We believe, to make a positive impact on society for the next generation, we need to start when children are young and invest years into their lives. Peter and Mercy’s desire is to see daily, holistic developmental centres established in various parts of India.
I was born and brought up in a remote village (Vennampalli) of Peddapalli District. I have been working with Shining Stars since June 2000. It is a joy being a part of raising godly leaders and preparing the next version in the way they should grow. Though many abstracted attacked, the vision of Shining Stars and the way it is being fulfilled made me to stay on for all these long years.
My name is Isaac. I was born and brought up in Kurnool, AP, India. I have a call by God to do His work, especially among children. I have seen that children are very moldable and teachable. I need to reach more children for the Lord through Shining Stars. And I have to pass this vision to as many as possible in Telangana and AP.
