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!

Sprouting fig tree

Monday we mentioned a verse in Habakkuk about fig trees that had no blossoms. When your fig tree has no blossoms, you are actually in the middle of a spiritual winter!

But today I read the most amazing Scripture in Song of Solomon 2:11-13(NLT)

 11 Look, the winter is past,
      and the rains are over and gone.
 12 The flowers are springing up,
      the season of singing birds has come,
      and the cooing of turtledoves fills the air.
 13 The fig trees are forming young fruit,
      and the fragrant grapevines are blossoming.
   Rise up, my darling!
      Come away with me, my fair one!”

The winter will always past, and after every winter there is a summer. Fig trees begin to sprout when the summer is near.

 Matthew 24:32(NLT)
 32 “Now learn a lesson from the fig tree. When its branches bud and its leaves begin to sprout, you know that summer is near.

Is your fig tree beginning to sprout?

The spiritual significance of the grapes on the vine that are blossoming, denote spiritual good and the figs on the fig-tree, denote natural good!

Maybe you are struggling spiritually, having difficulty to read Bible and pray. This will always have an effect on your outside world. You will struggle to bear fruit – you will lack natural good!

But take heart, God says your grapes are blossoming and your fig trees are forming young fruit! Spiritual and natural good is on their way in your life!
