Hey, sounds like everyone is still keeping busy. That's always a good sign. We had a baptism on Saturday so that was pretty nice. We're trying to do what Pres. said and finish up what we started here. This week was a pretty good one though it seemed a little slower than normal. We helped one of our investigators more fully understand the need for the Atonement so she's one step closer. We are trying to get another guy to just realize he already knows it's all true. We taught him everything and he likes it all and now he's just trying to get his knowledge of it or a sign or something. So he's a step closer. We got another couple set for baptism at the beginning of March. So hopefully things keep going well with them. But we can see a few things that might cause snags in their progression. Those three kids that are the cousins of Ian and Lianne are on track for the 18th so that's great! They all came to church and to the baptism on Saturday. One of our investigators who has come to church a lot but never stayed for the third hours stayed this week so that was awesome. The kid that got baptized was the son of a recent convert who senior missionaries taught in Dutch Harbor. So for the baptism one of those missionaries called in on the PolyCom and gave a talk. So that was pretty good. I got to baptize him but I forgot to step on his foot so he almost floated to the top! All of his family was there. It was a good day, oh and we always have to stay there while the font fills up (which takes like 4 hours) but this week there was a pinewood derby so we had some entertainment ha. Brother Taylor confirmed him on Sunday and it all went swell. So yeah it’s been a pretty good week. The Prince of Whales elders just got here today and they don't leave until Friday so that'll make an interesting week. Oh I've been trying to finish the Old Testament recently. But that's a pretty big book, and pretty tedious at points. But I'm almost done! I'm in Jeremiah so the only "big" book after that is Ezekiel so I’m pretty excited, I'll try to think of something that I want for my birthday, I'm a missionary I can't have too much ,haha too much traveling. D'nel is a big girl she's got it covered. Besides, something like that always has to happen. It's just an opportunity to grow and learn. Consider it a blessing and it'll become way easier. Well things are going great and they don't look like they'll slow anytime soon so I think it's safe to say all is well in Zion. Elder Waddell
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.
