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.

Hello my family,

I'm happy to say that Chris did get baptized yesterday, however it was a headache/rollercoaster to actually get everything ready, different things just kept popping up. So yea, I baptized him yesterday! It was a great and uplifting experience for Chris, me, and everyone that was there. Unfortunately, Elder Yim forgot his SD-card reader at home so I am not able to send you any pics today ): oh well you'll get plenty of pictures next week.

It's going to be crazy coming back to Liberty Ward and seeing all of these new families and all of their children, Summerwood, huh... Remember Liberty Ward will become a Stake of it's own one day, it's coming. Poor bishop, I'm going to write him today, hope he gets to feeling better. 

This week we have gained two investigators, but we won't be able to meet with them this week because they have tests in school and then right after that they are going home for Thanksgiving, yeah! /: By the way, I talked to Sister Evans and she said that she can reimburse me through my Support Card for some of the meals with investigators and members. This week was great! Tell Danny to try everything on the table at Thanksgiving Dinner, he's bound to like something. Tell Aaron to have fun at camp and to watch out for Sasquatch! As of right now we only have a meal appointment for breakfast on Thanksgiving day and I'm pretty sure that's going to be at IHOP (: Things have been busy this past week and it's all about to slow down especially with a lot of people leaving for the holidays.

By the way, Mom you would die here in the fall and winter, it's not even winter yet and the low for today is 29 degrees with gusting winds. Yep I'm pretty sure that you'd scream till you explode, but I don't mind it being chilly. I heard that it's supposed to snow again this week, why can't the weather just hurry up and make it snow everyday, instead of every other week? Anyways, all of the once beautiful leafs that were on the trees are now gone, they have fallen off. So yea winter is basically right at the door! (scary, just kidding). I enjoy the members in the University Ward, they are so missionary minded and our Bishop is Roger B. Porter. You should ask Bishop Thomas if he's heard of him, Bishop Porter is really famous in Harvard University, the Government, and in the Church. We have 3 other famous members in our stake: Clayton Christianson (he's been mentioned in General Conference, was a member of the Quorum of the Seventy), Henry Eyring (Henry B. Eyring's father), and of course MITT ROMNEY. Crazy stuff, eh?!

Well I gotta go hope you all have a good day and Happy Thanksgiving!
Elder Everett Alan Escobar
