NPO App, cleaning day, and Thailand trip

Tomorrow the wheelchair project will again go to the prefectural office to submit our application for NPO status.  This is our 5th attempt, and the last opportunity we have to apply this fiscal year.  If the application is rejected tomorrow, we will not be able to begin the process until next April and will need to re-file all financial reports along with various other documents.  Two of the board members along with a Japanese believer whose job used to be helping process NPOs have been working on this.  Please pray!


We’re also cleaning wheelchairs on Friday.  One of the board members is bringing her friend who doesnt know Jesus yet.  The wheelchairs we are cleaning will go to the Thai-Burma border next Monday.  This will be the first time Mary Esther has gone with the chairs being delivered.  With five people from ViBi (see below) and Mary Esther going, we’ll be taking six chairs. Mary Esther goes straight from the airport to the border with the chairs, while the group from ViBi goes to the conference in Bangkok. Pray for safety, stamina, and wisdom to deal with whatever she encounters there.
