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!

Hold my hand…!

This weekend we decided to take a break and watch a movie. Our seven year old daughter watched the movie with us. At one stage the movie become very intense when the good guys had to fight the bad guys.

She moved closer to me, and at one stage she grabbed my hand and said: “Hold my hand… for safety reasons!”

I love it to hold my daughter’s hand, but most of the time it is to keep her safe while crossing the street, or to keep her from getting lost in a crowd. And whenever she stumble and lose her footing, I grab her little hand tighter to keep her from falling. And then off course when a movie become too scary!

We also sometimes stumble and lose our footing. But there is a wonderful promise in the Psalms:

Psalm 37:24(NIV)
24 though he may stumble, he will not fall,
   for the LORD upholds him with his hand.

What makes you stumble? The way the world is looking? Maybe you are going through a financial crisis. Maybe it is the way the wicked is prospering, and that leaves you with more questions than answers.

But take heart, even though we sometimes experience situations that want to make us stumble, we will not fall!

We have a loving Father who is holding our hand, and He will grab your hand tighter when He feels you are slipping!

Ask Him today to hold your hand… for safety reasons!
