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!

Who’s writing your story?

This Sunday the congregations where we previously served at visited us in Danville. It was such a privilege and honor to receive them. One of our friends also ministered the Word and she asked us the following question:

Who is the author of your life-story?

The author of a book is the person responsible for the writing of the story. He chooses the story-line, the characters and the events!

As a “good “Christian we know that the right answer to the question is God. God is supposed to be writing the story of our lives. But if we look at one of the most righteous people in the Bible, we see that there were times when even he took the pen in his own hand…

Abraham was promised a son, but he thought God is just taking too long. He decided to write his own story and Ismael was born. It seems that every time Abraham took the pen in his own hand, he made a mess of his life-story.

But we also know that our Father is a gracious God and if we return the pen into His hand, He will most certainly start writing His version of the story!

Romans 4:2-3(MSG)
But the story we're given is a God-story, not an Abraham-story. What we read in Scripture is, "Abraham entered into what God was doing for him, and that was the turning point. He trusted God to set him right instead of trying to be right on his own."

Make your life-story a God-story by entering into God’s plan for your life, not your own. Then God will change your life-story into a best seller!


(Thanks Anserie for this powerful Word and thanks to Kaleideo congregation and WES for your gracious hearts and open hands towards us, we pray that God will bless and honor you for everything you do for Salem Danville!)
