Guestbook Entry: Language assistance for missionary project
Displaying 1 - 1 of 1 -- Add your comments
|Dear Elders and Sisters:
The young men’s presidency of the West Jordan, Utah Welby 3rd Ward has
been actively engaged in the development of the young men to serve
honorable missions. As one of our activities, the young men’s program
will be attempting to set a world record for reading the title page of the
Book of Mormon in the most languages. The current world record set for
this type of event stands at 111 languages for a poem read last year.
Over the next few months, the young men will be experiencing what it is
like to have to speak a foreign language as they hone their skills and
working on the pronunciation of the various words that comprise the title
page of the Book of Mormon. We are asking them to prayerfully seek
assistance from the Lord so that can gain a small understanding of what it
will be like in the mission field.
However, although we have several returned missionaries that are helping
with the pronunciation; we have need of assistance in the actual phonetic
translation or Romanization of many more. As an example of what we are
looking for….the word “India” may be pronounced (In-dee-uh).
We ask that if you or anyone you know has language ability in the following
languages, please contact Brother Chris Isbell via email at
email@example.com. We have the title page scans in a format that is
both acceptable for the Guinness World Record group and easy for the young
men to read. Your assistance will be noted and recognized during our world
We sincerely appreciate your consideration and look forward to any support
you may be able to provide as we attempt to prepare the young men for
honorable missionary service, attempt to set a new world record, bring more
publicity to the Book of Mormon and strengthen our quorums.
