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 7-16-12

Hey hey. This week has been pretty good. We taught more lessons than
we have been teaching recently and someone we're teaching came to
church for the first time in 7 weeks! woohoo! Thank you Morales
family. A family from the branch has been talking with her for a while
and they brought her yesterday and she's getting pretty interested. So
we're excited about her. Oh and typical Alaska story. We went to go
contact somebody that said they want to learn more and there was a
moose guarding the front door. soooo we didn't go, but that was cool.
We got transfer calls and we're staying together for a fourth
transfer, so hopefully we'll see some fruits this time. Oh yeah we had
a fireside for the branch. Some people who we're teaching came as well
though it was supposed to be specifically for the members. We hope it
helped them become a little more conscious of the fact they have
missionaries. But we couldn't do all the stuff we wanted since there
weren’t the same people as we expected but it was still really good and
the spirit was really strong. Pres Beesley is a boss. There were a lot
of little kids running around and being loud (we were in someone’s
house) so for his part he gathered the children and taught directly to
them then would look up and summarize and explain the story he told in
adult version and he got the children to "read" and stuff like that.
It was pretty cool. Oh man dad did the prayer in Spanish?? That’s
pretty cool. 25 people can speak Spanish in the ward? Man I'll
actually be able to learn Spanish when I come home ha. Hopefully some
more people come into the area. That's pretty exciting that the ward
is growing like that. Hopefully soon things will start picking up
here. Things are going well. We're happy to be staying for another
transfer.  We're staying positive and hopefully we'll continue to see
the blessings we've been seeing. I love you guys. All is well in Zion.
