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 7-3-12

Hey things aren't too bad this week. Less than stellar or however you
spell it. But at the same time not too bad.  It might seem not as
good because my faith is a little lower than normal this week but
it'll be back up. RJ is second counselor. Nice.  Spanish branch in
Liberty??? Sweet.  I’ll definitely go when I get back  and look like a
goofy white kid trying to speak Spanish.  Did you like the music on
the  cd's?   I got Emily’s the other day she's really jumping
into the Spanish thing huh?? ha-ha yeah the counselor in the elders
quorum was presiding and we started with around 8 people not counting
us, but then more showed up again. You never know who's going to come,                                                     but it was a really good Sunday. Good lessons, good testimony

Yeah, I got to see all the young men from Ketchikan and a
lot of leaders we taught stuff from PMG and our group of kids were all
from Ketchikan. Man I miss that place and will probably be forever
a little bitter about not being there in the summer. But yeah it
was good to see all of them and to hear how people I worked with are
doing. A kid that Elder Satini and I found is getting baptized this
month so that's cool. This week has been interesting. We only had one
lesson that a member was able to come to (which are the most
important) and it was on Monday.... but 3 people said that they
would get baptized this week. One is from Honduras and we've been
teaching her the entire time I've been here. The problem is she works
Sundays and supposedly it's all about seniority as far as days off go.
So we're working with her on that. Another is from the Dominican
Republic and she also works on Sundays but the problem with her is she
can't really get a different job because she can't drive to it. Right
now she works with her husband so they go together. And at that job
Sundays are the biggest days prepping food for the rest of the week.
And another is a young man from the Dominican Republic and his is more
that he probably wouldn't have a lot of support from his family, so that is difficult.                                      But their testimonies are growing and eventually it
will just be a matter of desire. So we're trying to be really hopeful. Love you guys!
