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!

Seasons around the Sun

Our year is divided into four quarters – summer, autumn, winter and spring. These seasons affect us in almost every aspect of our lives.
Margaret Jackson Minnicks says seasons dictate to us how we dress, what activities we engage in and what we eat. In the summer, we wear cool clothes and open shoes. We go to the beach, to the park or to other outdoor events. We love those watermelons and something cool to drink.  

Winters look and feel differently – we dress warm and enjoy nice warm soups.

Seasons have a lot to do with our moods and our attitude. If you usually in a better mood when you are in a season that you really like.

The seasons are not the same all over the world. The seasons occur depending on where you live geographically. The seasons change in our lives depends greatly on where we are spiritually.

Interesting enough, seasons is determined by the sun. The earth tilts on its axis and as it goes around the sun the sun shines more on the southern part of the earth in winter. It shines on both in spring and fall and it shines more on the northern part in summer. Where the sun shines the most, it heats it up the most. Where it shines less, it heats it up less.

This has a lot of spiritual significance - spiritual seasons depend on our personal relationship with the Son. If you allow the Sun of God to shine in your life, the winters will not be so cold and the summers will be more enjoyable!

James 4:8(AMP)
8Come close to God and He will come close to you.

Make sure that no matter what season you are in, that you always stay close to Jesus. Every season will be full of “Son” shine!
