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!

God remembers!

God remembers allot of things, but there is one thing that the Bible tells us He especially remembers:

2 Corinthians 9:9(NLT)
9 As the Scriptures say,
   “They share freely and give generously to the poor.
      Their good deeds will be remembered forever.”

God remember when we are generous to the poor. Even Solomon said that he who is kind to the poor lends to the Lord, and he will reward him for what he has done. The Message says mercy to the needy is a loan to God, and God pays back those loans in full.

My husband and I can testify of this truth. Since God has called us to work with the poor of Danville we have been experienced His provision in a supernatural way.

Sometimes when we go through difficult times we need to take our focus off our own circumstances and reach out to people who struggle just to get some food on their table!

But it is not only supposed to be something we do to take our attention off our own difficulties. God sees it as our responsibility to look after the poor. In another verse Solomon says that if we shut our ears to the cry of the poor, we too will cry out and not be answered.

Won’t you open up your heart to the poor? God will remember every good deed you do and whenever you go through a difficult time and you cry out to God, He will answer you!
