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!

It works... every time!

The Bible says that children are a gift from God. My husband and I can testify of this. We have only one daughter, but she is most certainly the most precious gift God ever gave us!

You can just imagine what a seven year old girl, that is the only child, can get away with if she knows how to play her cards right.

Michรกn loves swimming and last week she asked her dad whether he will take her swimming. Because of a busy schedule he said he did not know if he would be able to make some time for a swimming session as well. She just stood in front of him, curled her lip and made a very cute face, and said “please!”

My husband took one look at her face and all resistance crumbled… he agreed to make some time for the swimming as well!

Triumphantly she turned away, looked at me with a straight face and said: “It works… every time!”

A cute face will unfortunately not work with God. But there is one thing that that will work with God… every time!

John 14:6(NIV) 
Jesus answered, "I am the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me.

The One that will work with the Father every time is His Son!

When we enter into His presence through Jesus – it will work. When we pray through Jesus – it will work. Jesus is the way and the truth and the life!

You will be able to enter into Father’s presence through Jesus… every time!
