I am happy to announce that we received word from our lawyer today that the foundation has been incorporated.
“Articles of Incorporation were accepted by the Secretary of State, so you are officially recognized by the state. “
This is very exciting news for us. We have a few things to clean up yet with the by-laws and then we can apply for our tax exempt/ non profit status from the IRS.
This is so very exciting for us, and we know that it has been made possible by all of the prayers of our family and friends. Keep them coming 🙂
In other news, I just finished packing the 4th and final suitcase full of donated goods to take to Haiti. Again with the help of many family and friends we were able to pack several hundred pencils and sharpeners, bubbles, play ground balls, soccer balls, many stuffed animals, shoes, and some childrens pain reliever. Today when I called the airline to check on the cost of checking extra luggage, I was a little sad. We each can check one bag, and the 2nd bag would cost $100. This means it would be an extra $200 dollars to get all of these donated goods to Haiti. God Answered our prayers, in very short time. We were gifted the $200 and all suitcases will soon be on a flight to Haiti.
This coming week, keep my sister in law Vanessa Jager in your prayers. She graciously volunteered to watch 5 of my 6 children while I am away in Haiti. She has 3 small children of her own, and does not have a bus to haul them all, so she will be home bound for a few days.. I have every confidence that she will do just fine, but extra prayers can never hurt…
The 4th and final suitcase, and yes, it did zip shut
