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 8-6-12

Hey hey. I'm glad to hear they're doing all right. ohhh ,no more
missionary scholarship.... I hope I'll be able to play the trumpet
when I get back.... haha. Man I bet the girls are kind of bummed to go
to Hawaii. I hear it's not very fun over there.  Sounds like they're actually going to do
stuff! Good for them.  That would be pretty cool if they made the
choir. It wasn't too bad of a choir from what I remember. And it might
be alright to go to Australia and New Zealand...maybe...ha well I'm
glad you guys are having a good time as the summer is closing down. I
forgot if I told you guys that the branch moved. When the pres
announced it he wasn't too clear so everyone thought the branch was
getting shutdown. So originally we met in the institute building
across the parking lot from a building where the Russian Jack ward
met. Our primary and youth all go to Russia Jack for the 2nd and 3rd
hours because we don't have enough adults. They're going to remodel
the church building that Russian Jack meets in so they have to go to a
different building.  So we had to either do it by ourselves or follow
them. They announced we were following them but everybody thought they
meant we were joining them and nothing was going to be in Spanish
anymore. Elder Thorne and I looked at each other and were about to call
pres to take us out haha!!  But it turns out we just followed Russian
Jack to another building and we have sacrament in the relief society
room while they have it in the chapel then we'll do like we did before
but we'll just all be in the same building but different rooms. So
that's been interesting. We're reevaluating our game plan here as far
as the percentage of work we focus on one aspect or another. It kind
of feels like we've been spinning our wheels and nothing’s been coming
out of it. So we're looking to upgrade our tires...... dumb joke.
 Technically we broke our record for number of lessons taught
again. But it wasn't as effective.  Oh.... Bryan Samuelson
formally known as Elder Samuelson came with his parents this week. We
visited a few people with him... it was weird ,  someone asked who it
was at the door and he almost said the missionaries but remembered
he's not one and said "uhhh.... us." He's pretty happy and was
super excited to come see people in the branch. Well
I hope you guys enjoy the rest of your summer. I am mine. I saw part
of a sunset for the first time in months yesterday and that was pretty exciting
and depressing at the same time. Well love you all. All is well in
