Guest Blogger - Don't Mess with Texas by Teach

This is NOT how I will look in Texas
Oh, hey guys! Just so you know, I've been called to Texas. Fort Worth, Texas. I'm leaving in 61 days. It's insane!!!

I had a huge party when I opened my call and a lot of my wonderful friends came. I slit open the envelope and pulled out the single sheet of paper with words that changed my life.
I read the words Sister "Teach..." It was such a wonderful experience and I sobbed and sobbed.

I'm so excited to go to Texas. I never would've thought Texas. I've never wanted to go to Texas, but I know that it is the right place for me to be.

I'm terrified. I'm scared to go to a new state, leave my family, and be gone for 18 months. I know that I'll be able to do it, but I've had some pretty hard moments. Yesterday I curled up in my bed and cried. But here's the thing. I know that it is the best thing that could happen to me at  this time. I also know that I will be blessed for my service.

I'm excited. I'm scared. I'm happy. Overall, I'm going to have a very busy 61 days! I will miss you all while I'm gone, but I'm sure Mom will give you so many updates while I am in TEXAS!!!!

I feel like a dunce here, but why exactly is Teach going to Texas? Maybe I missed that somewhere. Congrats, anyway.

So happy for your decision, and your calling!! Yes, serving a mission is hard - but very rewarding and oh SO WORTH IT!!

Teach is planning to serve a mission for our church and she has been asked to go to Ft. Worth, Texas for 18 months. She is very excited and a little sad to leave.

You can be assured that your mother will keep us updated. You are going to have such great experience. My daughter lived in Fort Worth and she loved it there. I was blessed to be the nurse for the Spokane Washington mission for two years and I loved working with the Sisters and Elders.
Blessings to you as you prepare for this awesome moment in your life.
