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!

Walk in safety and victory

I have a few mottos in my life that I live by. One of those mottos is very straight forward but very important:

“Believe in God; believe in yourself; and get someone who will believe in you!”

The first two is obvious and most successful people believe in God and themselves. The third one might sound strange but it can make a big difference in your life.

Proverbs 11:14(NKJV)
14 Where there is no counsel, the people fall;
      But in the multitude of counselors there is safety.

Proverbs says that with no counsel you will fall. The primitive root literally means to be lost, thrown down or be inferior.

Counselor in the Hebrew context is seen as advice and guidance. In a sense the Bible is saying that without the advice and guidance of wise people you will fall. If you don’t have somebody that believes in you, you’ll feel inferior and it will be difficult to believe in yourself!

Although God needs to be our greatest guidance, Proverbs states that there is safety in a multitude of counselors, spiritual mature people that is willing to impart their wisdom in a younger generation.

I have a few of these counselors in my life. I see these ladies as my mentors; spirit filled ladies that teach me wisdom and keep me accountable. At times in my life when I did not believe in myself, they kept on believing in me, showing me the heart of the Father. Helping me to feel safe enough to believe in myself again!

Do you have a counselor, a mentor or an accountability partner that believe in you? Then you will walk in safety and victory!
