Istvan, I had the honor and privilege of studying under your brothers for three years (’71 – ’73) mostly at their South Par studio. Served me well once enlisting in USMC 7/73. Best regards to you and yours, Bill

My Bando brothers:
I will be entering Bible College mid September 2012 and I ask you all to pray for me as I enter and come down the “home streach” of my physical life, now devoted to Christ Jesus Kingdom work after 54 yr’s of work which I so loved. There are so many good associations with men & a few women of strength, discipline and courage; all traits of strong Bando men. I remember it all in good cheer and, I pray good health, wisdom and love with-in your families.
God blessings to all and your families and those you love,
