Fifteen Years With No Change

The next state filing was made over fifteen years later on November 13, 1992 by William
N. Matthews who then filed a notice of change in registered office and agent. Thus,
from the period of September 4, 1977 until November 13, 1992 -- no filings were made to
change corporate articles. This is a period of over 15 years without any changes. Keep
this in mind as you view the subsequent, massive and illegal changes that were made by
Mr. William N. Matthews. Did the changes serve God or Mr. William N. Matthews?
