The year 2020 was challenging to say the least. We know it was for everyone to various degrees. There were so many limitations to the work of TAP. We had ministries shut down not only here in the USA but around the world. Shipments were restricted here and abroad. Missionaries that were scheduled to stop by our facility had to cancel. Pastor Wes was not able to present the work at any churches in 2020. These were some of our obstacles but we had many, many blessings as well that we would like to share with you as well.
We were able to ship out 1,374 pounds of material in spite of the difficulties. This was about 1/2 the amount we were able to ship in 2019 (which was a big year for us).
In 2020 TAP brought in $18,700 in donations - down from $20,000 in 2019. This was a real blessing considering the challenges churches had as well.
In 2020 we were able to ship to India, the Philippines, Zambia, Ghana, Belize and more. We were able to continue to forge strong relationships with needy ministries around the world.
During 2020 we continued to have many materials donated. In fact, due to so many people spending time cleaning out and organizing through the pandemic - TAP saw an increase in donated materials.
We are looking forward to 2021. While writing this email we have cartons being shipped to Zambia.
Prayer Request: As always we ask our supporters to pray for additional supporting churches and individuals. We have more materials than the finances to ship them. We ask for prayer for solid contacts around the world so that we can be assured that our resources are getting into the hands of individuals that desperately need them. We also pray for open doors of shipping and receiving around the world.
Phone Number is changing: We began to use our new cell phone number earlier in 2020 and beginning January 2021 we will discontinue the long time landline number. Our new phone number is:
Thank you all for your faithful prayers and financial support. We are excited about the opportunities ahead. We continue to make contacts and keep in touch with our partners around the world.
