Sozo Ministry Update
We have received our 501(c)3 status, and in near record time!
According to the IRS frequently asked questions page, once they receive your application, it can take up to 10 months for them to review it and make a decision. Based on other organizations we know personally, this whole process can actually take twice as long. However, the grace of God seems to be on our side, and from the day I received a notice from the IRS that our application paperwork had been received, it was less than one month for us to get our letter of approval.
We are now, officially a 501c3, tax-exempt organization. What this means is that any financial donation made to Sozo Ministries or one of our missionaries qualifies as an income tax write-off for the donor. As this was one of our biggest hurdles in launching the ministry, and yet it went more smoothly than any of us could have expected, we are now fully convinced God is leading the way.
