Our brother and friend, Pastor David Yaniv, MIA Ambassador, after many years of serious health issues, has now passed from this life. He fought the good fight, he finished the race, he kept the faith. And now, the crown of righteousness, which YAH, the Righteous Judge, will award him on that day is in store for him. Yeshua receive David unto Himself on Friday, June 29, 2012 while in his sleep. Precious in the sight of YAH is the death of His saints.
David was born in Tel Aviv, Israel in 1936. He was married to his lovely bride Sheila for 52 years. A Memorial for David will be held next week in Lynnwood, Washington.
We were privileged to personally know and love David for almost 10 years. Many of you today have heard about David and Sheila from the number of appearances and interviews that have been produced on television, radio, and in magazines about his incredible testimony. Yeshua healed him after 7 years of distressing paralysis, allowing him to become a Believer as he cried out for healing while watching a Christian TV program.
The MIA was recently blessed when David agreed to give an interview that turned out to be his last on this earth. It will be uploaded on the MIA website in the near future. Col. David Yaniv bravely served in the IDF for many years before becoming a Believer, then he moved to the United States and devoted the rest of his life as an emissary for YAH.
One of David's sons is en-route from Israel to participate in the Memorial that will be held for David next week in Lynnwood, Washington. We will keep you posted as to the Memorial plans.
We ask you to keep his wife Sheila, and their family in your prayers at this time of grief and sorrow.
Blessings and Shalom,
Daniel and Sylvia Calderon, MIA Shepherds
