Her followers are ministering in forty four countries across five continents nurturing and planting the values of Peace, integrity, justice and freedom in the world today. The prayer service was ended with the quote of Mary Ward “You may never see the end results, but that is the difference between the master builder and the worker. We are workers, not master builders, ministers, not messiah. We are prophets of future not our own........
