I need to change the spelling of my non-profit's name. It has been officially changed with the Secretary of State. How do I do this?

I'm not sure what the hangup is. I have changed the name as guided, Bronze -> Name and Contacts....... However it still says the name as "Ansamn Ministries" in the "registered with the IRS". I have repeatedly said provided proper documents that I have filed the correct forms with the IRS and it has been changed on their end.
This is holding up the change on Smile Amazon as they note that they take their information from you guys.
Can we please resolve this?
Upon reviewing your organization's profile, I see that the name is appearing on GuideStar as Ansanm. Updates made to your Nonprofit Profile do not automatically sync with partner sites like AmazonSmile. GuideStar sends updated information on Nonprofit Profiles to AmazonSmile around the 22nd of each month. If you recently made updates to your Profile, it may take up to the end of April to see the change on AmazonSmile.
GuideStar receives updates from the IRS on a monthly basis. Once the IRS updates the name of your organization on the IRS Business Master File, we will receive that update and your organization's legal name registered with IRS will then show as Ansanm. Because this information comes from the IRS we are unable to make changes. We should received our next update from the IRS sometime this week or next.
Please let me know if you need any further assistance.
