DIGITAL CARTRIDGE SERVICE
It was a big leap, merging acquired skills, detailed planning and a bunch of guesswork. The risk proved successful! All of the 2015 fall quarterlies and periodicals hit the mail on time. However, this time they went out on NLS type digital cartridges rather than cassettes. Special recognition goes to Sarah Sykes and Sharron Stevens. Most of the work and pressure fell on these two dedicated ladies.
Instead of receiving a box of cassettes for each requested publication, members received one cartridge holding all 19 publications, (66 hours of audio, the equivalent of 44 cassettes and 12 mailer boxes).It was uncertain as to how members would react to the new system. Here is one member’s response.
“I was so excited to receive the magazines cartridge in the mail. This means that if I am needed, I can teach Sunday school now. Thank you so much! I am writing also to let you know that when I get them, I put them immediately on my Victor Reader. That's why I sent it back quickly. Thank you so much for everything.”

A Word From His Word
I will lead blind Israel down a new path, guiding them along an unfamiliar way. I will brighten the darkness before them and smooth out the road ahead of them. Yes, I will indeed do these things; I will not forsake them. [Isaiah 42:16] [NLT]
