Sick room under construction

We are so thankful that we have been given the funds needed to start building an additional room for the destitute center. In the month of August of 2008 we received generously from friends in Canada to start working on this project and we are now in need of $10,000 to finish the project. A special thank you to Fairmont Saskatoon, Dr Geoff Marshall, Norm Doerkson in Banff and all our friends for their support.
