We have 4 outstanding young men in our small ward in Liberty, Texas that have been called to serve a mission. It will be fun to have our ward family follow their experiences through this blog. Elder Clegg left July 20,2011 for the Idaho, Pocatello mission, Elder Waddell left July 27, 2011 for the Alaska, Anchorage Spanish speaking mission, Elder Escobar left in August for the Massachusetts, Boston mission, and Elder Tellez left September 14, 2011 for the Mexico, Veracruz Spanish speaking mission. We are so very excited that these fine young men have chosen to serve the Lord.

Elder Escobar's First Letter from Boston
Monday, September 26, 2011

Hey Fam,
It's me, today is P-day.  So far I have done a lot of cleaning, washing, and studying.  It is very humid here, I always come back to the apartment drenched in sweat and wearing a backpack all day long doesn't help either, but it is all good.  My first day was great, I rode the subway, the bus, met some interesting but rather weird  people, did some contacting, and got cussed at multiple times, it's funny (but in a way I find people cussing at me quite entertaining, because it's as if they have nothing better to yell at my face).  I like it here so far, even though it may rain too much.  By the way, while going to an appointment in downtown Boston, in the financial district we ran through a movie set for Universal Studios upcoming hit movie 'R.I.P.D.' (Rest In Peace Department), Ryan Reynolds and Jeff Bridges were there.  It was cool, they were filming a section of the movie when we walked by, it was pretty sweet.  We saw explosions, gun fire, stunt cars, helicopters and the celebs.  Unfortunately the appointment that was set up at that time was a no show, we later found out that his kid got sick and that is why he wasn't able to make it. We are currently teaching 4 investigators, 2 of them want to be baptized soon. Elder Yim and I have been meeting and following up with all of them throughout the week.  I like contacting because I get to see so many different reactions, it just makes me laugh.

So it was grandma and grandpa's 49th anniversary? Congratulations! Tell them that I love and miss them!  I hope things go well for Wally and Laurie, they need the gospel. Tell Brother Morales that I said congratulations about his new calling! Tell Brother Farrell thank you again for letting me work for him and enabling me to go on my mission.  Oh and mom, just to let you know there are no Walmarts in Massachusetts!!!! But they do have Target.  Tell everyone I love them!  Tell Bishop Thomas that I'm sorry that I haven't been able to email him at all, even though I've tried to. Is the Hair's house done? Are my little bros still doing fine in school?  How are you and dad? How are grandma and grandpa?...How is everyone in general?  Well gotta go, write me whenever you get my letter.

Elder Everett Alan Escobar
