The heart of Jesus is making disciples as seen in Matthew 28:18-20. Our desire is to see the apprentices following and living a life for Jesus and having Godly role models. We want to equip them not only with skills but to see hearts changed for Christ.
As the apprentices are part of the community and come from different areas of the community, it is our desire to see them continue to serve and reach out in meeting the needs of the community. This is done by visiting the sick, assisting the elderly, praying for the sick at the local clinic, visiting a nearby orphanage, practical help in the local schools like repairing the sewing machines, making volleyball courts, training various sporting activities and so on.
Soccer, chair-ball and volleyball bring out the competitive nature of the apprentices. After a hard days work in the fields and having lessons, sport is a great way for the apprentices to exercise their bodies, socialize, de-stress and work in team.

Social evenings are a “fun” time with and for the apprentices. They get to know each other and the staff better in a very relaxed atmosphere. Discussions, DVD’s, board games, song, dance, and rhythm games and so on are part of the fun times done on the social evening.

Watching the apprentice dramas are a highlight for anyone. They are very innovative and creative when dramatizing the events in the community. Self
initiated songs groups have emerged which keep the apprentices entertained.
