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!

Holding our hands high

Last night we had our year-end function with the leaders of Salem Danville. Fifteen dedicated people that gave up their time to serve the people of Danville!

This made me think of the following Scripture:

Exodus 17:11-13(NIV)
11 As long as Moses held up his hands, the Israelites were winning, but whenever he lowered his hands, the Amalekites were winning. 12 When Moses’ hands grew tired, they took a stone and put it under him and he sat on it. Aaron and Hur held his hands up—one on one side, one on the other—so that his hands remained steady till sunset. 13 So Joshua overcame the Amalekite army with the sword.

Aaron and Hur held up Moses’ hands when he grew tired. James Smith says Aaron signifies "stability," and Hur signifies, "fire or zeal”.

Our leaders held up our hands in 2011 – especially in the times we grew tired. They brought in stability and zeal and they made sure we were sitting on the Rock, Jesus Christ. With Him we overcame the enemy and gained the victory!

The victory belong to the Lord but He will always use people that stand together in unity with one purpose in mind.

Our purpose is to bring His Peace into the broken lives of the Danville people. A job we can never do alone!

Thank you to every leader for helping us fulfilling this purpose of God – you did not only hold up our hands, but you are holding up God’s hands and you bring honor to His name with every victory we gain!
