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.

Michael's Baptism

Hey! I'm sorry here to hear about Grandma. But I'm glad you guys got to go visit family. Yeah we got transfer calls Saturday morning from President Beesley and Elder Dean is going to Whitehorse Canada.... lucky haha. I'm staying and Elder Satini from Tonga is taking his place here. So it's pretty exciting. It's a tough move for Elder Dean but he gets to go to another awesome place so I think that balances it out for him. For the Skype I should be able to and it's supposed to be just family and maybe some extended family but we're not supposed to take forever with it especially since we'll be using some members computer on Christmas day. But yeah I'm super excited for that.  I haven't opened the boxes yet. I'm waiting until Christmas. So yeah it's pretty exciting here. It was my senior week last week so I did senior companion stuff which included driving. And it snowed a few inches one of the days and I've never driven on snow, so that was pretty fun. We went all the way out south of the island and the last few miles aren't paved and there are thousands of potholes so that was fun to drive in the snow with. But it started raining again and most of it got washed away pretty darn fast.  I don't know if you got in the email before but before I leave this area it would be nice to have some missionary business cards to give to people and I have no way of getting a hold of such a thing. Hmmm yeah this week has been crazy mainly because we weren't sure what was going to happen with transfers. So the work seemed slower this week. Except on Saturday Michael Jensen got baptized and his Grandma Valree who is investigating came and is talking about baptism so that was really good. But now it's time to wait for my new companion and help the transition for when I leave next transfer. All is well in Zion.
