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.

Email from Elder Tellez Thurs. 11/10/2011

While I was at the Service Auction at church, John called the house :-(
He was able to talk to Josh and gave Josh the info on his flight for Mon. Talk about mixed feelings. Yay!! John called!! :) I wasn't here and didn't get to talk to him. :( Josh got to talk to him!! :) Now I get to look forward to Mon :-)

Hola mama. I am doing well. I am assuming Joshua told you that I called and hopefully he gave you what my travel plans were. I will talk to you at the airport on Monday so be ready for my call at like 7 o 8. I will try to call your cell phone. Yup, they let us call our family to let us know that we are safe or something, so long as it doesn't interfere with my focus and whatnot. Let grandma know that I received her package but I never got her check. Money is incredibly tight and it just seems like there is so much stuff that I still need. I just found out that I am supposed to carry $100 emergency money but I only have like $3, but I don't think that I will have to pay for my luggage. I will talk with the travel office here at the MTC and explain my money situation. I'm sorry I'm complaining to much, I'm just muy concerned. Thank you grandma for the package. Thank you Mama for the dearelder, I really do appreciate letters from people. The reason why I was saying that it would take like 2 months to get mail or packages is because the holidays are coming around and mail will be crazy. Another reason is because I have heard that is takes a couple of months to recieve things sometimes in Mexico, so I will be depending on emails alot. How is everyone doing? I hope everyone is doing fine. I will be sending you a package of like 85 pics. Some are pretty pointless but some are good. There are some really good sights here. Well that is all for now, just be ready for my call monday morning, i don't really want to waste quarters on a voicemail. Te amo. I love you. Tell everyone I said hi and to write me or preferably email me.
