Where is Pastor Isaiah? Answer: Visiting an amazing ministry partner you need to know about! On Thursday, we headed to Philadelphia to visit our friends at CLC International. CLC focuses on printing and distributing Bibles and good Christian literature around the world. They serve as PPI’s main resource for French language Thompson Bibles and other ministry resources for church leaders in Haiti. We couldn’t train pastors without them!
As we put together our East Coast travels some months ago, we made plans to spend time with CLC leaders in Philly. We’re so glad we did! The CLC staff welcomed us warmly and provided a guest apartment for us for two nights.
On Friday, Director Jim Pittman and Tim Hurd explained CLC’s operations and gave us a tour of their warehouse. I knew God was using CLC to provide Bibles and good Christian literature around the world, but I didn’t realize to what extent! CLC oversees the printing and revision of Bibles and books, launches and manages Christian bookstores across the world, provides mobile “bookmobiles,” develops extensive web resources, and even provides logistical help for a Christian business in a closed Islamic nation.
And they do all this with excellence and passion for making disciples around the world. Jim, Tim and their staff pray regularly for PPI, work to get the best prices possible for us, and have even given to PPI’s work. They’re visionary, faith-filled and hard-working friends to PPI and to me personally.
