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!

Flags of faithfulness

Yesterday we saw that God's love is meteoric, His loyalty astronomic, His purpose titanic and His verdicts oceanic! He is larger than life! Yet in his largeness nothing gets lost!

One thing that especially makes me aware of His greatness is the clouds in the sky. The Message has an interesting view of clouds:

Psalm 108:4(MSG)
The deeper your love, the higher it goes;
      every cloud's a flag to your faithfulness.

Every cloud in the sky is there to proclaim His faithfulness!

When I was a little girl, I loved to look at the clouds. I still sometimes lie on my back in the grass, gaze into the heavens, and watch the cloud parade. You can see animals, landscapes, and even some interestingly shaped people!

The biggest meaning clouds however have for me these days are His presence and faithfulness.

If you look closely it is as if the clouds wave like flags, proclaiming His faithfulness.

But the clouds also contain His glory:

Exodus 16:10(NIV)
 10 While Aaron was speaking to the whole Israelite community, they looked toward the desert, and there was the glory of the LORD appearing in the cloud.

Want to experience His glory and faithfulness? Just look up to His flags in the sky!
