 I feel inspired to write about our granddaughter Tess who is a student at BYU. She is majoring in archaeology and has had a boyfriend for the last two years. They were planning a wedding this summer in the new Gilbert Temple. We were all making plans to that end when they decided together that to be their “best selves” and to make the most of their opportunities here on earth they would both put in their mission papers. They want others to have some of the happiness they share.

Last week Tess left for the Mexico City Missionary Training Center to learn Spanish so she can be an effective teacher of gospel principles in the Los Angeles- Spanish speaking mission for 18 months. Her boyfriend is soon to leave for the Atlanta Georgia mission for 2 years. We are proud of the character they have shown and hope to one day join them in the beautiful Gilbert Temple for their wedding.

We went to Arizona for Tess’s farewell talk in sacrament meeting. She gave a humble, convincing reason for her desire to serve and then told of the plan of salvation in one of the best talks on the subject we have ever heard. She is so prepared in many ways to be an asset to the mission and those she has the opportunity to teach.

Having had three children serve missions we can attest to the fact that they come home better prepared for the ups and downs of life. What a better wife, mother and sister in the gospel she will be for the experiences she will have while serving the Lord in the mission field. We say godspeed Hermana Tess Rachel Mccormick. We love you and will pray for you every day.
