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  09/24/2012

So I got my flu shot, but Elder Jensen was very reluctant. I don't think he likes needles very much. Oh well, we had a good week. We traveled on bikes the whole week pretty much (to save up our last bit of miles), must admit that we are a little sore but it's alright, nothing we can't handle. We gained 2 new investigators (Meyleen and Erki) this week and apparently they already know that the Book of Mormon is true. I questioned them on it asking, 'So how do you know that the Book of Mormon is true?' and they responded, 'Because every time we read or pray about it, we feel a good/comforting feeling and it makes us want to do good things in our life.' Right after they said that, in my mind I thought, 'BINGO: We Have a Winner!' Then Elder Jensen and I explained that these feelings are promptings from the Holy Ghost and we talked about receiving answers to prayers. So that was a breakthrough for us. Michael is doing alright, he just needs to get himself back together (Humpty-Dumpty had a great fall), his son came back. We don't have any details, all we know is that his son is in a rehab center and it was discovered that he is bipolar ): However, apparently both Michael and his son, Justin (who is in rehab) are diligently praying and searching through the Book of Mormon. So that's a good thing, I think that it will take time but they are on the right track. So it sounds like the Kingwood Republican Women's Fundraiser wasn't as grand as was expected. President Packard has recently changed some of the rules in the mission by putting more responsibility in the missionaries hands, agency is key to the building up of Zion. Sounds like changes are still happening in the ward as well. This week we had a ward open-house event which was good we had a few non-members. We have been assisting the Young Men's President a lot because his presidency has just been wiped out of existence with stake callings. So on the topic of being feed, the member are doing better and yes we don't have very many active-members in the ward. There are probably only 8 sisters in Relief Society (so yea) and the rest of the sisters are in Primary. So this week we are getting feed 3 times, but the fridge and the shelves in our apartment are pretty much empty....): So we have been going through food like crazy, it just doesn't seem to last. But the ward is doing better in feeding us, it was worse at the beginning of the month. Everything is getting better. I hope Aaron and Danny are keeping out of trouble (; and you might as well add Dad in there as well. He apparently didn't treat you right by not giving you enough notice or time haha. Well hope you have a great week and hopefully I can last frugally on my debit card for the rest of the month. Did grandma and grandpa get my card yet? Just curious. Anyways will see you in less than a year! (: and ): Take care!

PS: I heard that things are stirring up intensely in the Middle East, not good. Here we go again. We pull the troops out then we may push them right back in.
