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 4-16-12

Hey! Thanks!  I'm doing pretty well today. Things are going good, I can't complain. This week went pretty fast. Looking back things that happened a couple of days ago seem a long time past , but last pday seems like yesterday. sooo I guess the lesson is don't try to measure time. But we've had a productive week. The other day we were talking to a guy on the street and a bunch of little kids were running around. I recognized one because we had been in the area before and the last time he stuck his tongue out at us like some little kids do. But this time while Elder Thorne was talking to the guy the little kid walked up and looked at Elder Thorne in a strange way. Then he stomped on Elder Thornes foot. Then he started to hit him with a stick and try to stab him haha The guy we were talking with yelled at him then called him "nino del diablo" ,  so that was interesting. And I've decided that it would be much nicer if some people would just tell us they're not interested. Because being invited into someone’s house then after half an hour of conversation being told you worship the devil and you're going to hell isn't the most fun or productive thing I could be doing.  And it's not very easy to leave. Just a thought . So there's a lot less snow on the ground now. And it was about 50 degrees all day today! woohoo!  So that's been nice. We've met some new people and the work is just going rather well. Especially considering we have to actively seek out people who speak Spanish. Right now the Branch is split in two areas west and east with 5 missionaries. But next transfer Elder Samuelson will be gone and Elder Smith might finally leave the Branch. So we think It will just be one area covering the entire city and we might get Elder Petersen so we'll have a trio again ha. That would be pretty cool I think. But we're definitely worried about Elder Samuelson leaving....We need a native speaker so we can learn at a faster pace. Today we did some hiking. It was pretty sweet. It was Elder Samuelson's last real pday.  We have a Family home evening with a family we're teaching and some members tonight, so that should be good. Things are going well and we're excited for the success we're seeing. I hope things are nice in the lone star state. All is well in Zion.
