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 1-30-12

Hey! thanks for the emails and the additions. We had transfers and it turns out they're not whitewashing us yet they're leaving us both haha. So another six weeks in Ketchikan! We have 4 baptisms set up for this month so it should be a good one! And we've found a few people who seem pretty solid as far as wanting to learn and find out. So that'll be exciting. The only downer about staying is well I'll have to wait until next winter to get an actual Alaskan winter haha and after this transfer I'll be almost 8 months out and so far I've talked to 1 nonmember in Spanish.... sooo that's kind of difficult. Elder Smith is training in the Spanish branch (which is two companionships) now. So that'll be good. But I won't even really get to meet the only fluent Spanish speaking elder in the mission because he goes home after this transfer.... so it'll be an interesting next few months. Our finding efforts have slowed down a little. Now we're trying to get members involved with people we're teaching more than before. But we're still setting goals to find. You can never stop finding haha. Some of our investigators dad wants us to have a family home evening with them every Monday  and to invite people and stuff. Soooo that should end up being a good thing. I think this transfer we're going to try and go to Metlekatla and do exchanges over on Prince of Whales Island. I think President would be down for that. Oh and we have Zone Conference in March and President and the ZL's are coming down sometime in February. So it'll be a busy transfer. So it will probably go by pretty fast and I'll be working on my 6th transfer before I know it! Oh yeah a couple in our ward here in Ketchikan just got called as mission presidents somewhere English speaking haha they'll know where in March or so. So that's pretty exciting. So yeah things are going pretty well here and we're excited to see the fruits of our labor. I hope things are going well back home! It sounds like there hasn't been too much trouble! All is well in Zion!
