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!

I will not, I will not, I will not!!

Most people prefer to read a specific translation of the Bible. I like to compare certain translations of the Bible. This gives me a depth and a better understanding of Scripture.

So through the years of comparing Scripture, I found some verses in certain translations that really touched my heart.

One of these Scripture’s that is most certainly one of my favorite verses in the Bible is Hebrew 13:5b. The New International Version says:

 “Never will I leave you;
   never will I forsake you.”

Such an amazing promise from our Father!

The New Living Translation says:

 “I will never fail you.
      I will never abandon you.”

God will not leave, forsake, fail or abandon you!

Do you believe this promise from God? If you struggle with this promise, I have found a version of this verse that not only touched my heart, but also changed my life… The Amplified version:

 “…for He [God] Himself has said, I will not in any way fail you nor give you up nor leave you without support. [I will] not, [I will] not, [I will] not in any degree leave you helpless nor forsake nor, let [you] down (relax My hold on you)! Assuredly not!

He will not, He will not, He will not… leave you!

How can we not believe this!
