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 9-20-12

 Hello,Well this is the last week of the transfer. There's a
pretty good chance Elder Thorne and I will be here for a fifth
together but we might have a third guy. But whether I leave this time
or the next I want to go to Fairbanks next to get the "Alaska
experience" you know frostbite, northern lights, the whole bit. It's
looking like it's pretty likely that I'll only be in three or four
areas in my mission. I'll be in at least one more but I might just
come back to the branch after a little while in that one, but we'll
see. The work has been going alright. Our lowest number of lessons
this transfer was the same as our highest last transfer, so we're not
doing too bad. I've been studying the parables that Christ taught so
that's been pretty cool. It's pretty impressive how well he could
teach. I guess that makes sense. It turns out being sinless helps
you learn. Our biggest obstacle in learning anything, math, science,
religion whatever is that we sin. I kind of got a grasp on that a
little more recently. We had a guy whose wife seemed like she                                                                   would be a hindrance but her heart is softening and we're already seeing
her open up. Thanks for the pics and vid. Take care, Love Elder Waddell
