I made it!!!

June 26, 2013 
Wait..... Im in GUATEMALA!!!! WHAAAAAA!! Ok so I met with about 15 Elders in Salt Lake and then we met about 
30 Elders in LA! There are only 4 Hermanas total that arrived today. I have been so giddy all dayand I don't know if 
 it's because i'm so slap happy from the red eye flight, or if i'm just really excited!! It has been way fun and pretty
kick back. I can't wait until im comfortable with the language and beable to say anything I want. I understand
 more than I thought I would for a start and my companion has taken 8 years of spanish so she is pretty much fluent!! 
Its awesome because she can help me a lot and I can learn the language faster. I have 7 roommates and 6 of them are
latinas! im sorry i dont have very much time to write and this is kind of a weird computer, but I love you guys so much!!
The church is true!!

Hurrah for Israel!

My name is Lani Sherman and I have been called to serve as a missionary for The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints in the Honduras, San Pedro Sula East Mission!! I report to the Guatemala CCM (Mission Training Center) June 26th! I'm so grateful for this opportunity to serve and dedicate my time to further the work of Jesus Christ.


I am called of God. My authority is above that of the kings of the earth. I have been selected as a personal representative of the Lord Jesus Christ. He is my master and He has chosen me to represent Him. To stand in His place, to say and do what He Himself would say and do if He personally were ministering to the very people to whom He has sent me. My voice is His voice, and my acts are His Acts; My words are His words and my doctrine is His doctrine. My commission is to do what He wants done, to say what He wants said, to be a living modern witness in word and deed of the divinity of His great and marvelous Latter-Day work. How great is my calling! - Elder Bruce R. McConkie

"God doesn't call the qualified, He qualifies the called."
