Apart from his role as CFI-UK Church Liaison Officer, David is also part of the Communications Department, writing the weekly CFI News Reports (Watching over Zion) for a worldwide audience. As a young Believer in the 1980s, David spent time with the Russian Underground Churches smuggling Bibles into what was then the Soviet Union, and later spent three years with Romanian Children’s Aid: helping children with AIDS in a Romanian Hospice. Since 1995 he has been working with CFI-UK, what he and his family believe is God’s calling on their lives, to work and help the people of Israel, along with edifying the Church

Julia has already fulfilled much of this role on a voluntarily level for the past 10 years, alongside her husband David, but now takes on this and specific responsibility for the recruiting and coordinating of Church Links, Prayer Group Leaders and intercessors as well as booking conferences.
