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!

The Shortest Prayer

This morning I read Proverbs 18:10 (NIV1984)

 10 The name of the LORD is a strong tower;
   the righteous run to it and are safe.

The name above all names… The name of Jesus!

This weekend a friend showed us a testimony of a lady that said her Grandmother taught her the greatest, most powerful prayer!

The prayer: “JESUS!”

Yes, you have read correct. No long, difficult recited prayer – just the name of Jesus!

When you utter His name, it is all inclusive. It provides every need. It saves from every trouble and it is like a strong tower you run into.

So at this moment, just say His name…

When you feel stressed, say His name…

When the finances are not coming in, say His name…

Because every time you say His name, you run to Him, and He will lift you up. Lift you up as if in a high strong tower, to see the situation from a different perspective. Then feel His peace coming into the situation… and feel safe!

My prayer today for you:
