A Much Needed Update on 'Bread for Life Ministries'

A much needed update on
Bread for Life Ministries
is in order, wouldn't you say?

I agree.

Here's a snapshot on what's been going on the past 5 months:

After we finished 2012 strong with a running total
of $20,000 raised for the precious little faces of Uganda,
we realized we needed to get some things in order.

The Lord had placed it on our heart to turn this
sweet-little-orphan-loving-ministry into a non-profit.
As you may know, every non-profit needs an active-working 'Board'
in order to be approved by the Government.

Being already surrounded by an amazing group of
orphan-loving friends it become very clear who the Lord
was putting in place for this ministry.

I am so excited to say, Bread for Life Ministries
has established an exceptional 12 member Board
the fatherless and pumpkin bread.

It's a perfect mix! 

So, over the past few months we have been very busy!
We've had many prayer meetings,
Board meetings and worked very hard
to get all our ducks in a row.

We did all the hoop-la of filling out the applications,
Articles of Incorporation, Bylaws, Conflict of Interest,
Financial Data, and establishing our EIN.

Does this all sound fun? 

Needless to say, we are now just waiting for final approval
for our 501 (C) (3).
Please join me in prayer that this will come quickly!!!

Another top priority for the ministry is getting
into a commercial kitchen to bake all this yummy bread.
In order to do that, there is another list of hoop-la-hoops
to jump through. 

Certification through the Department of Health,
Food and Handing testing and exams, Insurance,
Approval by the State, Certification through the County...
hoops and obstacle courses all day long. 

After all is said and done...
I take my final exam for the Department of Health:
Food and Handing Safety course on June 5th
After I pass: we will be ready to GO!





It will be so wonderful to be back in a BIG kitchen.
Lot's of flour, eggs and pumpkin....

I can smell the bread now!

Not to mention: setting up accounts with all my vendors,
special ordering for my packing materials,
printed material, labels, stickers, twisty ties...

all the little details that make a delicious loaf of bread
change the lives of many little bodies half way across the world.

It's a BIG DEAL!

All the details I take very serious.


And not to mention... our new website!!!


I hope to have it launched by early-mid June!
The address is: 

Isn't that awesome?

So, In a nutshell, that is where we are.
A little bit of a waiting-game right now but trusting
this will all be completed and official soon
so we can get back to business. We have a job to do!


Im in AWE of the Lord!

His sweetness to bless this ministry with everything
it needs to reach the thousands,
encourage the Body of Christ and spread awareness. 

That's what Bread for Life Ministries is all about.

Helping, Feeding and Loving orphans; one loaf at a time!

"Whoever has a bountiful eye will be blessed,
for he shares his bread with the poor."
Proverbs 22:9
