We have an employee from Canada working in the US for our

We have an employee from Canada working in the US for our church on an R1 visa. His wife has financial skills we would like to use potentially. Not sure if it is relevant but we have had him here for 10 months.Do you have any suggestions?Are any of these options allowed:1. Our church in Canada pays her with Canadian dollars for work done here. Our leadership is on their board but they are a separate legal entity.2. We get some type of spouse permit/visa that allows her to work?3. She volunteers for us in this capacity until we find someone to take the job or she becomes eligible to work some other way (ie her husband on R1 gets his green card or maybe I485).Any insight and direction will be helpful. Thanks,

I'm a Canadian currently working in US under TN visa. I got my approval for H1B visa. The effective date on my visa was 10/01/2016. I haven't crossed the border to get my H1B stamp.
