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 Everett Escobar

Hey it's me again General Conference was pretty much, amazing, but I feel like Elder Boyd K. Packer was saying, 'farewell' ): President Monson was funny, I enjoyed it though. As you may know I am serving with Elder Yim, he is from Hong Kong, China and is a hard worker. I learn something everyday. He and I are assigned to the University Ward in Cambridge, Massachusetts but we don't really have any boundaries so that's kind of cool. We go to Harvard just about everyday, so I guess that you can technically say that I "go to Harvard". We work mostly with the Young Single Adults, we have dinner appointments every now and then. The people here are so diverse not only in ethnicity, but in their mannerisms and attitudes (I'm not talking about the members, just the people here in general). 

 Things have changed a lot here, when I arrived in Massachusetts it was warm and humid and now it is cool and windy, oh and the leaves on the trees are turning yellow. It is currently 54 degrees, it feels good to me, I know that Mom would disagree with me ha ha. Aaron, I'm happy for you being able to start band and I miss both you and Danny, I love you both, and we are going to do something fun together when I get back home on September 6, 2013. I hope that you two are behaving for Mom, don't give her a hard time, that includes you too Dad (: My mindset on just about everything has changed, it's weird, but yet again not really I guess it's expected from going on a mission. But yeah, I really like it here, yes it's different but I am enjoying myself. The winter season here is well on it's way, I have heard that the first few days that it snows here it's beautiful, but after that it's apparently ugly because it becomes a muddy sludge of ice and other debris. We'll see and I will definitely take pics and send them to you. Oh I also mailed a letter to grandma and grandpa (don't tell them though it's a surprise, I want them to be shocked when they get it from the mailbox). So yea you should send me pics too, otherwise it wouldn't be fair that I send you pics and I don't receive any in return, well I gotta go...
    Love you all so very much,
        Elder Everett Alan Escobar

  1. I am so behind on checking the blog. I am very glad to hear that Everett made it to his area safely. He sounds so mature already :-) Thank you for posting his letters.
