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!

His pleasure

There is a great difference between knowing God is good, and actually experiencing His goodness for yourself!

These past few days we experienced His goodness through His provision! He just opened His hand to the people and children of our congregation!

When you experience His goodness in such a tangible manner, you really come to know who He really is… that He wants to provide for you; He wants to give you your heart desire; and the best of all? He smiles when you are happy!

As we gave out gifts and food to our children and teenagers, it was as if I could see the Father smiling! He was happy because they were happy!

Ecclesiastes says:

Eccl. 9:7(MSG) 
Seize life! Eat bread with gusto, Drink wine with a robust heart. Oh yes - God takes pleasure in your pleasure!

His greatest pleasure is our pleasure! Our greatest pleasure… not necessary to receive something from Him, but to experience His goodness and coming to know who He is!

May your greatest pleasure in life be to know who He is!
