PUB RESTORED INTO A CHURCH - Salem Danville, Pretoria, South Africa


Salem Danville's first service was under a carport on the 1st of March 2009 with 6 people. We started because the people of Danville spoke a need of a Biblical, relevant and alive church.

In December of 2009 we took over an old pub in Danville and renovated it into our church - a miracle done by God! Today we minister to about 100 people, 30 teenagers and 60 children.
Danville is a poor area in Pretoria West, South Africa - unique in a sense that there is poor people of all cultures and races.

Our vision - to bring His Peace and restoration to the people of Danville. To show them that your circumstances do not dictate God's love for you. Jesus loves all, no matter who you are, what you've done, or how much money you have!

Share the joy of ministering to the poor with us in this blog!

A Miracle

I suppose some people are skeptic about God because they do not see or experience any miracles.

To see miracles I believe you have to move in the realm of the impossible! This is the incredible privilege we have in Danville, to see God perform miracles - when He does things that supersedes human ability.

Yesterday I told you about our celebration service. There was about 30 adults - that was without all the teenagers and the children.

Kobus barbequed all the meat at home - about 25 pieces of T-bone. When we walked into the church, my first thought: "I hope there is enough meat". When we dished up I divided some of the meat for the children, but did not count... "Oooh, God, let there be enough for each one....!"

The children got first and then all the adults stood in a row for a succulent piece of meat... and do believe me, those who know, my husband knows how to barbeque a T-bone to perfection!

At the end, I counted the last 3 people in the row.... I counted the pieces of meat left.... 1, 2, 3 .....7! For the 3 people in the row and the 4 ladies dishing up! "WOW!" I thought, “exactly enough.”

I just smiled, and I experienced God winking at me.... O Lord, You still perform miracles!

That evening I read 2 Kings 4:42-44 (just in case I thought it was coincidence and not a miracle from Him)

 42 A man came from Baal Shalishah, bringing the man of God twenty loaves of barley bread baked from the first ripe grain, along with some heads of new grain. “Give it to the people to eat,” Elisha said.
 43 “How can I set this before a hundred men?” his servant asked.
   But Elisha answered, “Give it to the people to eat. For this is what the LORD says: ‘They will eat and have some left over.’” 44 Then he set it before them, and they ate and had some left over, according to the word of the LORD.

There were actually left-over salads and pudding... but the meat... just enough!

God wants you to experience miracles - start trusting Him for the impossible, because this is the only place where miracles can be seen!
