We are so excited that the first step has been completed. DeafBridge is now an official nonprofit ministry organization that can begin "conducting business". Thank you for praying for us during the process. Yet, the process is not finished. We are now ready to apply for 501(c)(3) status with the IRS. This is the longer and more complicated application process. Thankfully, we have a wonderful Christian CPA that will be leading us through these next steps. Please continue to pray that all goes well and moves along quickly!
Meanwhile, Chris has been seeking the Lord in prayer for wisdom and guidance as he has been working diligently at putting together the curriculum content that DeafBridge will be using for training Deaf nationals in church planting and Christian leadership for Deaf churches and leaders throughout the world. We are praising God for all of the wise mentors and bothers and sisters in Christ that He has brought along side us to help in creating these materials. Chris has also been approached by Deaf believers and leaders in different parts of Eurasia and the United States asking for this training and help with evangelism and/or church planting. Please continue to pray for wisdom and guidance from the Lord and that we will be sensitive and responsive as the Holy Spirit leads.
