Our Elder is heading to......

A great big city.

The 4th largest in the United States after New York, LA, and Chicago.

A place known for foods our son adores: barbecue

and Mexican. 

It's known for sunsets

and spaceships.


and agriculture.

It's an international city where over 20% of its citizens are foreign born,

and where some of the natives are.....


It's a state with undoubtedly more pride that any other state in the union,

assuming of course, that they decide to remain with the union.

Because it's a place that, like our son,
does not like to be messed with.

And so it seems perfect.

Ever since he read his call on Saturday evening, we couldn't imagine him serving anywhere else but the Texas, Houston Mission.

We're thrilled and so very proud.
(Almost as proud as Texans.)

He's going to love it over here! Make sure he packs plenty of bug spray, chapstick with SPF and some drymax socks. They dry out quckly and come in both athletic and dress versions. said...

How exciting!!!!

So exciting! My good friend just moved from Bainbridge to Houston last year. It has been a non-stop adventure. If he ever serves in Atascocita, tell him to look up Mariann & Jimmy Wise. :)

And I saw that y'all are gonna be a ma & pa with us next June. Looking forward to getting to know you better!

It's also where the Little Couple lives. Have you seen that reality show on TLC? It's our favorite! And they recently adopted a 3 year old boy from China. We're looking forward to hearing about his adventures.

How exciting! My brother and his family live in that mission. His wife is from Texas and loves it there. Congratulations on the call.
