A Burden Eased

Today a HUGE burden was lifted from my shoulders! We thought it would be necessary for us to receive tax exempt status for our missions work so our financial supporters would be able to get a tax deduction for their contributions. The process required by the IRS includes a 38 page application form and approximately 150 pages of instructions and related publications. Not to mention the paperwork required by the state of Georgia to complete the IRS application! With everything else that’s going on, I was overwhelmed.

This verse kept coming to my mind Mt. 11:30 and I knew God had not intended us to become entangled in this mass of red tape when we answered his call to serve. Jeff and I prayed and turned the matter over to the Lord. His answer was a call by our pastor and his offer for our home church WGCC to accept contributions on our behalf under the church’s tax exempt status and to forward them to us. What a blessing!
