The IRS has granted us continued non-profit status at this time. I thank everyone that prayed for FamilyNet. It was truly a long shot – but God gave us an agent that was sympathetic, and evidently the IRS considered the mission and past performance of FamilyNet a viable ministry. Please keep us in prayer, as it seems running FamilyNet from Texas is not going to be as simple as we had hoped.
Maureen, Jessica and I have joined Lavon Drive Baptist Church (Pastor Gary Coleman) in Garland, Texas.
