One of my favorite jobs was working at a Christian bookstore.  For a stretch of about 9 years, I worked part-time each morning at the bookstore and then full-time during the afternoons and evenings in radio.  I truly enjoyed helping customers find Bibles, books, and music.  Thankfully, in the U.S., we are blessed with an abundance of Christian bookstores.  I would say that most cities have several Christian retail shops from which to choose, but that's not the case in China.  In a country of 1.3 billion people, only a handful of Christian bookstores exist, and Ray Pritchard of Keep Believing Ministries describes some of them as "stalls."
