Our 2019 Annual Report
Acts 17:11 These were more noble than those in Thessalonica, in that they received the word with all readiness of mind, and searched the scriptures daily , whether those things were so.

This newsletter will be an annual report for 2019 covering how the Lord has blessed the ministry of TAP.
35 years - To God Be The Glory!
2020 will be the 35th anniversary of TAP Ministries Inc. Jim and Emma Turner began TAP out of their home here in Harrisburg in 1985. We praise the Lord that He has seen fit to use this ministry for His work for the last 35 years and we endeavor to continue shipping materials to the mission field until He returns! Praise the Lord!
Special Christmas Shipment
We were able to ship our special Sunday school material shipment to India. Shipping was delayed 2 weeks due to shipping problems in India, but we were able to see the boxes picked up on January 8 and they will be delivered on January 16. Pray that these arrive as planned due to turmoil that often plagues these areas.

As Regular Baptist Press updated all of their curriculum over the last year - we have outlets to send the old style. Several churches have already sent us their old material and this is what we are shipping on this special shipment to India.
Prayer Requests

Our constant request is for more supporters. Each month we see more materials donated to TAP than the funds needed to ship those materials. We have seen an increase in our support level in each of the last 2 years but we are still far behind where this ministry was in the 1990's.
2019 Annual Statistics

During the calendar year of 2019 TAP witnessed many changes. We will highlight a few here:

* In May Pastor Wes and Destinee assumed leadership of TAP. Tom and Patty Whaley had served at TAP for many years and were looking to retire and find younger people to take over this ministry.

* In May we began our association with DHL Express and have forged a solid relationship with our contacts there who have helped with special pricing and shipping options.

* TAP had donations in 2019 of just over $20,000. This was an increase over 2018 which saw donations of $17,000 and 2017 of $14,000. Praise the Lord!

* In 2019 TAP was able to ship 2941 pounds (1 1/2 tons) of material. This doubles the amount of pounds from 2018.

* In 2019 TAP spent $8212.55 on shipping. This averages out to about $ 2.80 per pound - down from the $5.00 per pound we had been paying.

* In August of 2019 we were able to expand our facility with an additional hallway and room which our landlord (New Love In Christ Church) allowed us to have for no additional charge.

In 2020 TAP will be celebrating 35 years of shipping material. We have put together this special bookmark for this occasion. It is our hope and prayer that our supporters will put these bookmarks in their Bible and pray for us each time they see it.

This bookmark also serves a dual purpose - the backside contains a list of materials we are currently accepting and those materials which we cannot send. We will try to mail some of these bookmarks to all of our supporters over the next month and if you would like some - just send us an email.
New Phone Number

We are changing our phone number. The new phone number 717-678-4760. The old number is still working at this time but will be discontinued in a couple of months.
