We accomplished many things yesterday. Here is what we did:
*Challen and I sat down yesterday and worked to finish up the tax exemption paperwork the IRS requires for us to be a 501(c)3 non-profit. We have been putting it off because we thought we were very unsure of what we were doing. But, yesterday we actually answered every single question! Now, all that we have left to do is to create a budget (projected) for the first three years that we will be established. That will be quite challenging, but we have a few other homes that are willing to show us their yearly budget so we can get an idea of what we would spend money on.
*We also sent the information to our graphic designer who is working on a logo for us. I am excited to see what he comes up with!
*There are also two women’s homes in Orange County that have agreed to give us a tour and to answer questions that we have. On July 29th we have appointments with these 2 homes to check out how things are run! I am very excited to see this ministry in action!
Continue to pray for us as we move forward, one step at a time, in the ministry that God has given to us!
