Alpine German-Speaking Mission!

Sister Henry's mission blog: http://SisterHenry.blogspot.com 
Sherry reports to the Provo MTC on June 12th  changed to July 10 (see here http://henrysvancouver.blogspot.com/2013/03/new-report-date-for-alpine-german.html).  She was really hoping to go German speaking because she loves the language so much.  She was planning on a Study Abroad to the same area (Vienna), and then the mission ages changed and now she gets to go love and serve the people of Austria, southern Germany, Lichtenstein, and Switzerland for 18 months! They are going to love her too and her voice.  She will get to be in the same cities as many of the great composers of Classical Music and Opera!  What an incredible blessing from the Lord.  A full 1/4 of her FHE Family from last year at BYU are going to be serving there, pretty crazy!
God knows you and He loves you!  Personally!
   She was just absolutely 100% shocked.  And one of her singing Vergebliches Ständchen in German her senior year of high school, this is the song that made her fall in love with the German language. =)

    1. I just looked at your blog quickly, did you do the study abroad in Vienna through BYU? Sherry was planning to do the one with the School of Music this coming Fall...but the Lord had other plans for sharing her vocal talents, an even better plan! I seriously would have put her in this mission or Italy, had I chosen myself. Sherry's blog is http://bringonthelemons.blogspot.com/ (we will probably post her mission letters there)

    1. Congratulations! I was wondering who from England kept viewing this page =). If you go to this post http://henrysvancouver.blogspot.com/2013/03/new-report-date-for-alpine-german.html you'll get an update--she was Fast Tracked so she won't be to the MTC until July 10th but will travel to Germany in the same group. What is your last name so I can tell her to look for Elder Josh ____? =)

    1. Well I can't help you with that, but here is Sherry's facebook https://www.facebook.com/SherryHenry
      She is finishing school up at BYU right now, but she will have more time in May.
      Just be ready for lots of different dialects, and it will be hard for about 6 months and then it will be easier!

    2. Lily, did you end up married to your Elder Barber? Sherry and Elder Josh Barber were good friends and served in the same zone quite a bit. =) Their mom was my facebook friend but she must have removed me haha. Hope you are doing very well!
