Chile Earthquake Update: May 2010

News Item Date: 18/05/2010 08:29:00
National Director, Isaac Zuñiga, has sent us the following update:

The Lord has been very good to us through the ‘practical love’ of the CLC family and others. Gifts have been used to repair damage to CLC staff accommodation, to help a number of Christian bookshops and pastors, and towards food and literature distribution in areas that have been most affected by the recent earthquake. Our sales in the last few weeks have been amazing; we see that people want to come closer to God. Praise the Lord!

Spanish publisher Unilit is printing 10,000 copies of a special edition of the book When God Doesn’t Make Sense by Dr. James Dobson to send as a gift to CLC Chile. The printers, Buena Semilla in Colombia, are also helping in this project and CLC only needs to cover the shipping and importation costs!

Added to this are a number of other projects to reach the people of Chile with the comfort and hope of the Gospel message. CLC Chile is distributing 5,000 copies of More than a Carpenter and 5,000 of La Promesa, an edition of the Gospel of John. RBC Ministries (Radio Bible Class) is sending thousands of booklets from their Discovery series, having chosen 5 different themes that would be appropriate to the situation; and Tyndale has donated hundreds of copies of Where was God? by Edwin Lutzer to be sold as support for the work of CLC Chile.

Finally, there are plans for the author and psychologist Dr. Adrian Intreri, whose books are for young people and parents, to visit schools and other locations to speak to people in areas most affected by the disaster. This will probably take place in August. Please pray that all these generous offers and plans will be used of God to bring hope, healing and salvation to many people in Chile.
