The story of the Church funding of training of four "art missionaries" to Paris from 1890 to 1891 is chronicled. Their experiences are particularly viewed through the eyes of John Hafen. They repaid the Church for funding their studies through painting temple murals and giving of their talents to building the kingdom.
