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  10/30/2012


We are alive and okay! Me and Elder Jensen are actually alive, we have power, and we are back in Newport. To me this hurricane was pretty pathetic and a lady that works at Walmart, who previously lived in Corpus Christi, TX agreed with me. However, the residents here keep saying that we got hit pretty hard....yea whatever. The most you see here is just some trees/branches/leaves on the ground, other than that that's it. So we are okay. This past week was good in gaining new investigators and in taking pictures. One new investigator that we received this past week was from a part-member, less active family. Apparently the husband is less active, his wife (Laura Girard) is not a member but has had the discussions from the missionaries before. However, now she feels like she is ready to be baptized and both her and her husband have already set a goal to be sealed in the temple around a year's time. So yea golder than golden. We received another investigator from a member referral given to us, her name is Diane. And the day we knocked on her door, was the day that her ex-sister-in-law died and she was pretty distraught about it, she talking and just unloading all the weight she had been feeling and carrying on us. We were definitely supposed to knock on her door that very day. During our first visit with her we learned that she is surrounded by mormons and that she already has a Bible, Book of Mormon, Pearl of Great Price, and a Doctrine & Covenants. Finally two more people that we can work with. Michael and Justin St. Pierre are still a little out of it lately, it's quite unfortunate. So in the pictures you will see us on the cliff walk, our halloween costumes for the trunk-or-treat, etc. It was a good, interesting week. Oh my, the adventures that come along on the mission.
