  I've had the honor of knowing Elder Don for about 15 years and have seen firsthand what a wonderful grandfather and great grandfather he was. As a man of Yahweh, he devoted his life to Yahweh's word. He personified the examples of Yahshua, including an outgoing desire and love for others. His sacrifice and devotion impacted the lives of many thousands. He will be greatly missed. May Yahweh comfort the Mansager family as they mourn the loss of this extraordinary man.

  Words cannot adequately express how much by Grandpa means to me. He is the one who sat me on his knee when I was 5 years old and taught me how to tie my shoe laces. He was the man that took the time to talk to me whenever I came into his office, no matter how busy he may have been. And he was also the man that I held hands with and sang to during his final days. I will love, remember, and cherish him for the rest of my life.

  One of the hardest things I have ever had to do was to say goodbye to him. How do you say goodbye to a man that has been such a huge part of your life? How do you say goodbye to a man that has always been there for you? As he was dying I looked into his eyes and said “I love you Grandpa, good bye,” although he could barley speak, as it took all his energy he had left to breathe, I could read his eyes looking right back at me and I could see “I love you too Ryan,” this was only minutes before he fell into his last deep sleep. Thank you Yahweh for choosing me to be his grandson was all I could think of as I left his room. Rest for awhile Grandpa…I couldn’t imagine a better grandfather!

  May YHWH cradle his family in the palm of His hand while they grieve and adjust to the changes in their lives. I pray for the congregation. I pray for strength and peace, as we remember our hope in YHWH and His precious Messiah!!!

  My husband (Elder Marcel De Brael) and our entire family (including my Filipino family in the Philippines) send our condolences and prayers to the Mansager family. Elder Donald Mansager had been an effective and compassionate instrument of YAHWEH in bringing the TRUTH to the world... Marcel and I count it a blessing to have met Elder Don Mansager personally (and hugged him too) during the Feast of Tabernacles last year (2011) in Rocheport... May YAHWEH comfort the Mansager family during this difficult moment!

  Elder Don's generosity, kindness and agape love he had shown us over the years has been an inspiration to me and my family. Most notable were the teachings of Yahweh's Truth. Elder Don patiently led me (along with Yahweh's Spirit) through the many deeper teachings of the Scriptures.
His devotion to Sabbath-keeping, proper doctrine, and compassion for the brethren make him a "man after Yahweh's own heart."

  May Yahweh comfort the Mansager family. on behalf of the Assembly of Yahweh in jamaica W.I.
For Yahshua himself will come down from heaven, with a loud command, with the voice of the archangel and with the trumpet call of Elohim, and the dead in Messiah will rise first. 17 After that, we who are still alive and are left will be caught up together with them in the clouds to meet Yahshua in the air.

  Elder Don was a man after Yahweh's own heart. He was like a grandfather to me. So much love he had. Wish I was even half the man Elder Don was. I had the honor of being baptised by Elder Don. Praise Yahweh for him!

  I consider it an honor and a privileged to have been mentored by such a great man. I can still remember the day when he took me to the side and asked if I would consider being appointed as a deacon. I explained to him that I was not nor could I ever see myself in the ministry. He however explained to me that he saw otherwise and It would be an honor to serve the Father. Needless to say I said Yes. To this day I feel that it was one of the best decisions that I have ever made. Elder Don Mansanger will be sorely missed...but we live with the hope of the resurrection! Hc

  I was baptized in 2010 and I had the honor of meeting Donald Mansager and his lovely wife shortly after. He is an inspiration for me as a new convert. He ran his race and now he is able to await the return of the Messiah. HalleluYah.

  May we all submit to the truth of Yahweh's Word and Spirit, as Elder Don did, that we may also hear the words, "Well done, good and faithful servant." We will miss him, but look forward with great expectation of seeing him in the coming Kingdom with all the first fruits. May he rest in peace, until then. With Agape, David & Carrie

  There are so many scriptures to share that would bring healing to a hurting heart, but I will leave the Mansager family with this good word from Psalm 23:1-6 in this hour of mourning:

Yahweh is my shepherd, I shall not be in want. He makes me lie down in green pastures, he leads me beside quiet waters, he restores my soul. He guides me in paths of righteousness for his name's sake. Even though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil, for you are with me; your rod and your staff, they comfort me. You prepare a table before me in the presence of my enemies. You anoint my head with oil; my cup overflows. Surely goodness and love will follow me all the days of my life, and I will dwell in the house of Yahweh forever."

I've known Elder Don all my life...he was like a grandfather figure to me. There were many feasts when he would take the time to talk to me, encourage me, or help me when I forgot a memory verse. His smile is what I will remember most...and interestingly, that is what I remember most about his departed wife, Mil. They were both so full of joy through lives well lived, lives lived with an abundance of love...for the body of Messiah and Yahweh and Yahshua above. I am blessed because of Don and Mil and how they've touched my life. Blessings of peace and healing to the Mansagers at this time.

  I don't believe that I ever met elder Mansager, but I do know that he did a great work for Yahweh. May Yahweh El Shaddai grant the Mansager family the peace that passes understanding in this time of mourning.

  My prayers and condolences to all this who loved and will miss Elder Don.

I had the good fortune to have met and get to know him a little. He truly had a great influence on many lives and will continue through those who preach and teach the Truth of Almighty Yahweh.

He was a servant to both Yahweh and those whose eyes have been opened to the Truth.

I'm blessed to have known such a man.

Rest in the hope of eternal life Elder Don. Our hope is to see you then.
