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 Big Steak

The other day I read that life is not measured by the amount of breaths we take, but the moments that takes our breath away.

Last night we had another celebration dinner. Another moment where God took my breath away because of His goodness and faithfulness.

This was the fourth event where we invite the people of Salem Danville, spoiling them with most probably the biggest steak they have ever seen.

Now you might ask – why give a few poor people a big steak, if you can give bread to allot…?

When God spoke to us about a celebration dinner, where each and every person would be treated to dinner, we off course first thought of the money… how much would it cost us?

The cheapest and easiest to prepare was a “boere wors roll” – a traditional South African treat, almost like a hot dog.

But God asked Kobus: “What would you give a special friend visiting you?”

My husband specialty is a barbequed T-bone steak; so naturally, his answer would be a nice, juicy T-bone! God’s response… “Go and do the same…!”

So for the past four weeks, every Wednesday afternoon, he has been barbequing about 30 pieces of T-bone steaks.

So what took away my breath? Firstly His heart for the people of our congregation – to spoil them exceedingly, abundantly, above… How? With a BIG steak!

Secondly, the fact that He provides every cent for these celebration dinners.

It is so true… where God guides, God provides… even if it is a big steak!
