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 Everett Escobar 7/16/2012


My week was pretty good, gained one investigator and had a total of 8 members come out with us this week. I am tired! And time keeps going by faster, I don't like it. It's been super hard to keep the records up to date, it's like we are never home except for morning studies and when it's time to go to bed. But somehow we find time to update the Area Book. In my opinion, the months are starting to seems like days (month=day). Anyways, we are still trying to fuel the fire in the ward, especially for referrals. Because when we go out contacting we only seem to find tourists and we can't do anything with them, except give them a pass-along card. Then if we go tracting, like no one is home cause they are at the beach soaking up some sun. Too bad we can't really go contacting at the beach! It seems to be the Hot Spot/Watering Hole. So now we are having to rely more heavily on the members. Oh and somehow when we go finding, Mitt Romney's name is never brought up in a conversation; I find that interesting. However, I have seen a lot of Mitt Romney bumper stickers lately (: Maybe that's a good sign.

So Danny has 7 cavities, Wowzers! Lay off the sugar buddy and brush your teeth more haha. Aaron has band practice, eck! Mom is blowing her mind out studying for seminary and taking care of the rest of the family. And Dad is building 2 houses, working full-time both career and church calling-wise. Sounds like a bowl full of fun, intense, randomness. Well at least you are keeping busy and not wasting time lounging around. Oh a song popped in my head, 'Count your many blessings, name them one by one...'. Well our Zone is having individual interviews with President Packard this Wednesday, ought to be fun. I think this week is going to be busy for the both of us. Oh, it just dawned on me that, I'm going to have to be looking to apply/sign-up for school pretty soon, YEAH! Ok.

Love you,

Elder Everett Alan Escobar
