The Initial Years by V. M. Abraham

A year before India became independent (1947), a young Indian gave himself to God and initiated a literature work in Madras, christening it ‘Evangelical Literature Service (ELS)’. For the first eight years it was the personal business of Donald David. In 1954, he surrendered his business to God and joined hands with CLC UK.

Within a short period of becoming a part of CLC, ELS began its leap forward, increasing the number of staff and centres. Though nearly all Western missionaries had left within the first ten years of their service, the Lord kept adding committed men and women from within India to this mission. The increase of personnel, centres, publications and distribution – quoted in the words of the late John Silk, the International Secretary of CLC in the 90s – “was like the speed of light years”.
