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!

Don’t move…

Yesterday I explained how you can float in the Dead Sea, but you must keep as still as possible. The reason is that if the water gets into your eyes, it will burn allot because of the high salt content.

The moment you start moving, to get into action, you’re vision will be blurred by the salt in your eyes.

People that just receive and never give out, never move into action, because it will cause some discomfort.

The problem with this mentality is that you not only limit your growth, you will actually shrink!

An interesting fact is that the Dead Sea is shrinking by the day. The Jordan River feeds the Dead Sea and in the 1960s much of the water from the river began to be drained off for irrigation and other needs. Without its constant supply of water, the Dead Sea began to experience great changes, water levels dropping at the rate of about 1 meter per year.

The problem is so big, that you now have to walk for about a kilometer from the Ein Gedi Spa that was once right in front of the Dead Sea.

An inward mentality will not only blur your vision, you will actually degenerate spiritually. To grow spiritually you have to have a giving mentality. The more you give out, the more space there is for God to fill up again!

Luke 6:38(NIV)
38 Give, and it will be given to you. A good measure, pressed down, shaken together and running over, will be poured into your lap. For with the measure you use, it will be measured to you.”

If you don’t give, it will not be given to you. If you don’t move, don’t expect God to move on your behalf!
