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 Waddell 1-2-12

This is Elder Satini from Tonga and is Trinity's newest missionary companion. He is still in Ketchikan. It was so exciting to speak with him on Christmas day, we were able to see him through skype...so that made it even more special. This is his most recent e-mail from earlier today.

       Hey! thanks for the pictures and email! Sorry I couldn't email last week things have been closed the past couple preparation days. Sooo let's see. It's a bright sunny day today. But nothing will happen more than likely. We've been teaching a little less than normal but we're starting to try and find people so it should start picking back up. It snowed and hailed a lot this week but yesterday it stormed all day and all the snow is gone. We tried to get up a guys road to his house that we were trying to contact. We got stuck at the top and it was pouring. I started backing Elder Satini down the road (one of our mission rules is that one of us has to stand outside the car and direct the missionary driver if we have to back out of anywhere, it is a safety precaution) and a guy comes charging out of the house yelling and cussing at me haha it was pretty exciting. But he calmed down and felt bad after a little while and told us to come back ha. Just walk up next time. So yeah, I'm not sure  that much else exciting happened other than that. We had a different schedule for new years eve because they didn't want us on the road very late. Oh and we met a guy who's the father of the wards only missionary. He's not a member and he wants to start talking with us, so that should be good. I'm glad the holidays are ending because the work should start picking up again more than likely. It's been not too successful the past two weeks. But things will get better. The girls are thinking about going to go to Idaho????? no. haha!  Did they even apply for that one? Well all is well in Zion.
