David and Josie's Story
David and Josie were born In Auckland, New Zealand. Although David’s heritage is from the tribe of Levi, he grew up to become a committed Athiest who hated all religions, including the Jewish religion. The couple met as young teenagers and David took Josie away from the deep faith in God that she had since she was very young. They were married in 1978 and have 2 sons, Stefan and Jordan, who are both married to young women who were born in Israel, Keren and Limor. Stefan and Keren have added 4 grand-daughters to the Silver family.
Josie came back into the Kingdom after being born-again in 1986. David was initially very negative towards Josie's renewed faith in God, but after just 1 year and a supernatural experience, David also accepted Yeshua as Messiah in1987. Very soon after coming to faith, David discovered the true meaning of being a Messianic Jew and began to study the Hebraic roots of the Messianic / Christian faith. Late in 1991, after a second pilgrimage to the Feast of Tabernacles in Jerusalem, David sensed the Holy Spirit directing him to uproot his family and immigrate to Israel.
David and Josie have lived on Mt. Carmel since 1992 and are members of Kehilat ha Carmel congregation. David is an evangelist and has always had a strong calling to share the Gospel with the Jewish people. In 1995 David and Josie travelled to Moscow to participate in an outreach to the Jewish residents of that city. Then followed similar events in Moldova and Latvia. While in Latvia in 1997 , the Lord spoke to David and placed the vision for OUT of ZION Ministries in his heart. Soon after Josie received a prompting from the Lord to start an internet based prayer and intercession ministry, with the primary focus of encouraging Christians in the nations to pray for the restoration of Israel - Intercessors for the Restoration of Israel (I.R.I.)
David recently sensed that the LORD was calling him to add to his messages concerning the Restoration of Israel, the subject of the Restoration of the Church, both of which when complete, will result in true Revival and ultimately will bring forth the return of Messiah Yeshua and the restoration of the Kingdom of God on the Earth.
David has authored a book called A Slow Train Coming, and has produced articles and videos which you can find on this website.
