David's dedication extends to the core principles of Mission Without Borders, especially the emphasis on empowering local churches and employing local staff. He recognises the unique challenges faced by communities dealing with post-communism, struggling governments, and limited resources. It is this understanding that propels David's commitment to keeping Jesus at the centre of our mission and progress.
