Trip Emphasis: Developing Mature Leaders (Phase 5a), launching Leadership Institute groups,
encouraging existing staff, recruiting new staff for WDA India.

Background: WDA India started in 2018 and has grown under the leadership of Emanuvel Dass. Emanuvel leads 1-year online WDA Leadership Institute cohorts and Restoring Your Heart groups along with our other WDA staff member, Bharathi Shivappa.

We will also visit Shillong, northeast India, to encourage phase 3 ministry trainees, conduct a Disciple Building seminar for Christian leaders, and visit Shillong’s famous waterfalls.
