replaced by a dedicated and enthusiastic team of 9 volunteers. The
shop has been completely renovated and a new computer system
installed. The changes seem to be paying off with increased sales
and contacts with unbelievers. One lady who has lived in the same
building as the shop for 7 years entered for the first time after
the renovations, and has already made substantial steps towards
conversion. Please pray for her, and pray that this bookshop would
not only be an instrument of blessing to the believers but a vital
tool in the spread of the Gospel in the heart of the city.
