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!

Pray for him

Yesterday I told you about how I asked God whether I need to get up at one o’clock at night because I heard something outside our house. His response was a loud “yes” through my sleeping husband’s voice.

After I was convinced that Kobus was really asleep, I literally jumped out of bed! You quickly get rid of any tiredness if you believe God is speaking to you!

I walked to our living room to see where the noise was coming from. After thorough investigation, the only thing I could see was our neighbor that was busy getting out if his car. It was quite unusual for him to be outside so late at night and I realized that the noise I heard came from him.

This really confused me, why would God tell me so directly to get up for no reason?

Just as I was about to get back into bed, I felt in my heart: “Pray for him!” Obediently I lifted up this man to our Father. We only met these neighbors once and don’t know much about them, so I had to pray as God laid it on my heart.

Till today, I am not sure why it was so important that I had to pray for this man, but I know it was important enough for God because He sure used an unusual way to get me out of bed!

Ephesians 6:18(MSG)
In the same way, prayer is essential in this ongoing warfare. Pray hard and long. Pray for your brothers and sisters. Keep your eyes open. Keep each other's spirits up so that no one falls behind or drops out.
