What is the main focus of your activities today?
All round Israel advocate – politically, biblically, socially
How long have you been doing that?
What are some of the successful related programs or projects that you have done this year and in past years?
Helping establish Cristian Friends of MDA in UK & promoting State of Israel Bonds to UK’s pro Israel Christian community. Active member of Conservative Friends of Israel in UK Parliament.
How did you get to where you are today?
Prayer! Learning from my Jewish boss that if you want to meet someone, you will climb over any wall to do so! A little chatzpah goes a long way.
What is your “testimony”?
I had the great blessing of a Christian grandmother after whom I’m named. Together with my parents, I was taught to follow Jesus from a young age. At school, I had an
inspirational scripture teacher who started each lesson by drawing a rough map of Israel (the coast line, sea of Galilee, Jordan River, the Dead Sea and Jerusalem on a blackboard. In my 20’s I attended a Christian summer camp in my native Worcestershire, where well known Christian bible teacher, the late Derek Prince, taught about the importance of Israel. Together with the ministry of Christine Darg, I was taught to love Israel and to respect, revere and appreciate the Jewish people who have given us Christians everything we hold dear; the scriptures, the patriarchs, the prophets, the apostles and most of all our Jesus. When I was looking for a career change, I knew I wanted to work in the Israel/Jewish world. I prayed and God answered. For the last 15 years, I have been the Office Manager for a Jewish “Family Office” specialising in the Israeli medical device sector. In addition to my work, I serve as a Trustee for Christine Darg’s Exploits Ministry/JerusalemChannel.Tv and also Magen David Adom UK. I’m also on the Lay Advisory Board of the State of Israel Bonds in the UK, promoting the purchase of Bonds to the Christian community. I’m also on the Executive Committee of the Anglo Israel Association. As a political person, I’m actively involved with Conservative Friends of Israel.
What do you think God is doing with regard to Jewish-Christian relations?
Improving them from one degree of glory to the next. We Christians so appreciate our older brothers in the faith!
