After participating in our monthly quarter day of prayer this morning, I headed out to our ministry centers in New Jersey. Traveling with me was Merle Wolffe, a good friend and volunteer with CLC. God has really blessed our ministry in allowing us to grow in the South Jersey area. In late 2007, Sonshine Christian Bookstore became a CLC Bookcenter. In January 2009 Abundant Life Fellowship became the third church to partner with us in hosting a CLC Bookcenter on their church campus. With the addition of these two stores, CLC now has seven Christian bookstores in the Philly and South Jersey area. Easter week is always a great time in the stores as we celebrate all that it means to serve a RISEN savior.
