Marion Manning recently realised she needed new leadership for CLC Barbados. Encouraged at a conference to use board members more, Marion invited Rev. Wilbert Charles to her office. Wilbert had worked for CLC years ago and was serving as a Board Member. Marion’s opening comment to him was, “Wilbert, I need your help” and without even a moment’s hesitation he replied, “I know I never should have left CLC.“
At the end of May, Wilbert took over as National Director. Sometimes we only see insuperable problems, while the Lord is already working out the situation.
A Shelter from the Storm
by Marion Manning
A young woman came into the bookshop to shelter from the rain and she took the opportunity to browse around the store. This led to a conversation between her and one of our staff about her relationship with the Lord. After another visit, the young lady came to trust Christ as her Saviour. Praise the Lord!

A customer shopping at our store came to share with us the encouragement her son-in-law had received from a promise box she had bought for him on a previous visit. She explained that one evening when she, her daughter and her son-in-law were out to dinner, she noticed a lump in his neck. After a series of tests, it was discovered that the lump was cancerous and, when it was time for surgery, he insisted on taking the promise box with him to the hospital. He later spoke of the comfort he had received from reading those promises from the Word of God every day, and this also eventually resulted in his salvation.
Passing the Message On

Recently I mailed a copy of Rick Warren’s What On Earth Am I Here For? to a previous Governor General of Barbados and he telephoned me to say he had read it and to ask if he could have three more for friends!
