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.

I'm am doing fairly well on this fine and dandy morning, here in Waltham, Massachusetts. Wow Dad's doing a lot, building houses, working in his career and in church, keeping an eye on 2 squirrely boys, and campaigning for 2 people, hmmm. Is he campaigning for Mitt as well? haha. 5 lawn jobs in 3 days, Aaron's just racking up the dough, huh? Well it's good that Danny's medicine is working and he's getting better at taking pills, I guess he's not as much of a sour-pup as I was. 

So the Ramos family is in church again, that name sounds very familiar. Maybe the Liberty missionaries were talking about them with me before I left....oh wait I remember the Ramos family, I went with the missionaries and visited them one time, they are a nice family. That's great! Wow, Uncle Travis is getting pretty high up there in the Mickey D's business, before we know it he will be the CEO of the McDonalds Corporation, okay probably not. Assistant Manager, sounds pretty good though. Holy Cow! The Stake Center is almost done, wow, I have been gone for a while. That's crazy...Yes you should send me pictures in general, not just the stake center but of everyone else too.
Well this week wasn't as inspiring in a sense like last week, but had some good experiences. We met with Witerland twice this week and she mentioned to us some of the goals that she has made for herself. She said that she wants to get baptized, then she wants to keep coming to church and progress in the gospel, and then she said that she wants to go on a MISSION! I was impressed and excited at the same time. She speaks Haitian-Creole and English very well, she moved over here right after the earthquake in Haiti. However, she is deciding whether she should go to the Haitian ward or our ward, if she decides to go to the Haitian ward then we will have to pass her off to the Haitian Creole-speaking missionaries ): oh well, if that happens at least I can say that I helped. 

We met with Suzanne this week, she hasn't really been feeling good she's diabetic and is always fighting a low blood sugar so she didn't make it to church on Sunday. However, when we met with her, her daughter was there (she was visiting from Nashua, New Hampshire). It was funny because when we walked up to the door, she kind of shrieked in fear because she thought that we were following her. Apparently, she saw the missionaries in Nashua earlier that day haha. 

We met with Sam and yes he's Catholic and he's from India. Trust me there are many people here with weird/outlandish experiences and views. We started reading the Book of Mormon with him and he said that he will read it throughout the week so we will see what happens. So in total we had 0 investigators at church on Sunday /: oh well let's try for next week. 

Okay so Mother's Day is indeed coming up...I plan on using Skype because that's what you said that you wanted me to do (Mother's orders), but I don't know as of right now where I will be on Mother's Day. That's a mystery that I will have to find out and get back to you on...so till next week.
