Danielle Malki was born to a believing family near Tel Aviv, Israel. At the age of 16, in the midst of challenging circumstances, she realized she had never made a commitment to Jesus. Though Danielle knew of God, she followed her own path. In 2009, through teachings at a conference, Danielle came to realize that a life without God is not worth living. It was then that she first understood that she could not reach God through her deeds, but only through the sacrifice made by Yeshua (Jesus). As she trusted in Him, God filled her emptiness with joy and gave her the boldness to share regularly about Yeshua.
Danielle is married to Natan, and they have one son. She has a BA and MA in social work. While she was a student, Danielle joined our Israeli Massah, which focuses on reaching young Israelis as they travel through India and South America. Through that experience, her passion and calling for sharing the gospel moved her to join Jews for Jesus at the end of her studies. In 2018, Danielle initiated and began leading the Mekomi team, a ministry for people who struggle with addiction, homelessness, and prostitution. In 2021, the Mekomi team opened a residential house for homeless women. Applying her education in social work, the Mekomi team serves the street population, meeting their immediate needs, while focusing on long-term impact. As Danielle says, “I want to help others have a deeper revelation of who God is and to be bold in proclaiming Him as Lord of their lives.”
