came together for the project, so many
people have come forward from many
walks of life, to lend a hand. To be part of
the Board for Sparrows, you become aware
of so many times when God has provided
above and beyond what was needed or even
imagined. THANK YOU LORD!
  This has again become evident as we
proceed to the construction phase of the
project. We have sent out Tenders for the
building and they have come in at a very
favourable cost. Many thanks to the work
done on the Tenders by the Contractors!
With the Tender amounts in, the finishing
touches are being put on the Business Plan,
which will then be presented to both                          The Hanger Band
Sparrows and Bethesda Boards for
approval. At that point a contract will be
signed with one of the bidders. This should
all happen sometime, the Lord willing in
the middle of May. Construction could
begin any time after that! Thanks again on
behalf of everyone on the Board for all the
help and encouragement you have given us
over the past years. Warren Vandenberg
