Rod Fowler Discusses Solutions to Difficult Situations

In the mid 1990s, CLC Canada was going through a very difficult time and, with dropping sales, we were unable to pay our suppliers. CLC owned a property that had been up for sale for quite some time, but no one showed an interest in buying it. Finally, when we were wondering about the future of the ministry here in Canada, the Lord brought along a purchaser who gave us enough to pay off all our debts and revitalize the ministry.
Flash forward to 2015. After the sale of the Westmount property, we moved to Verdun and opened in two other locations – it was too much expansion in a shrinking industry! Very quickly, we found ourselves in a very difficult financial situation. Again, the future of the ministry was in question as our losses gave us about a year to find a solution. The Lord, in His timing, provided a solution. We were finally able to sublet our warehouse and store in Brossard and then our sales increased and our expenses decreased. Now, although our survival is still not assured, we are cautiously optimistic of the future of CLC Canada. These experiences and many others are a good reminder that the Lord is present with us at all times and in all circumstances, both good and difficult.
