We are so pleased to report that after a year and 8 months, we’ve finally received the 501(c)3 acceptance letter from the IRS for Instituto El Rey Foundation. Though we are exceedingly grateful for the covering of the ACTS Foundation over IER’s last 14 years, we are excited about the opportunities for grants and other possibilities that independence will offer. We thank you so much for joining us in praying through this process and recognize God’s Sovereignty.
On the homefront, we have just said our farewells to our final group of the year. We’ve had a lot of projects, charisma, blessings, and fellowship over the last 10 weeks, and we are so thankful for the relational support that God blesses us with through the visits. We’ve had some terrific adventures and have been blessed while blessing others throughout the mountain communities. All of us have enjoyed gaining new knowledge and skills–both academic, spiritual, and handicrafts. The school facilities clearly reflect the renovation and beautification projects that groups have so generously donated time, energy, & finances to complete.
After finishing the bi-annual Recycle Fair on Friday, we’re busy preparing now for Independence Day, Children’s Day, and Teacher’s Day for the month of September. Please continue to pray for us as we strive to consistently point the students to Jesus while also organizing all of these extracurricular events that make really special memories for all of us! Thank you for being such fantastic blessings to us; we appreciate all that you do for us.
