August Calendar


After World War I, on August 20, 1923, the French Mission was reopened. If you were to go on a mission to France, you would learn to speak Français (fron-say’). You would teach l’évangile (lay-von’-jeel) to the French people, telling them about le Livre de Mormon (luh leevr duh Mormon) and les prophètes (lay pro-fet’), Joseph Smith, and Spencer W. Kimball. With foi (fwa), prière (pree-yair’), and travail (tra-vaiy’), many people could be baptisé (bah-tee’-zay) into l’Eglise de Jesus Christ des Saints des Derniers Jours (lay-gleez duh zha-su Kree day San day dern-yay zhoor).
