Great help with our Pioneer Activity Day - in Vienna, Austria! We are and international English- speaking ward here with members from Nigeria, Ghana, the Philipines, the US, Russia, Iraq, Chile, and more. Many if the children have very little experience with pioneers and their experience, so I want them to have this educational and inspiring activity. Also, I grew up in Utah and my bday is July 24th!
Hello in Vienna! I spent time in Vienna years ago-- it was such a lovely city and I'm sure I went to the same church building you are in. I hope you have a great time celebrating Pioneer Day!
