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.

Trinity 4-2-12

Hey! Thanks for the email! Conference was great. It always is. The only problem this go around is that we watched it in Spanish.... Which means I need to rewatch them. I enjoyed the stuff I understood but especially with conference I want to hear more than just the basic idea.  Man the girls are always on the move. When are they supposed to go to Hawaii?  Counting down the Mondays. Anchorage is good. Learning Spanish, always on the move, the occasional moose, lots of nasty melting ice.  What do I need?... music never hurts,  but I’m definitely stashed as far as hygiene goes, haha, thanks. Well let's see this week has been good. One really cool experience was we got to go to the swearing in of one of our investigators. It was sweet. There were 75 people from 26 different countries becoming citizens. They all went up and said where they're from and some stuff like that. Man. America is a good place. So that was cool.  Most of the people we teach are from the Dominican Republic. They're notorious for slurring words and speaking like they have peanut butter in their mouths, but not all of them are hard to understand. Well let me rephrase that. Because it's hard for me to understand no matter how clear it is. Not all of them are impossible for ME to understand. One thing we do to try and meet new people and speak in Spanish is visit the little Spanish stores. We always buy a Jarritos. So tasty. Oh the other day I didn't realize it but we ate lengua! (tongue) haha it was rather tasty. They were some members from El Salvador. I'm glad things are going so well back home! Things are still moving along here. I'm a little worried for when Elder Samuelson goes home but there are still a few weeks. We'll see. Well I think that's about it besides I was wrong about the breakup stuff and it's definitely in full nasty swing right now. It's like the in-between snow and washing away in Ketchikan except it takes a lot longer to leave. We've gotten stuck in the slush a few times. But yeah anyways all is well in this part of Zion. I love you

Elder Waddell
