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 11-12-12

hey hey hey I’m doing well. Sorry I’m not going to use correct punctuation or anything. I just used that all up in my letter to president. Beef jerky wouldn't hurt me toooooo bad. Yes, it is indeed cold. I think the coldest I’ve been outside so far was -24 or something like that. Eventually cold is just cold haha, no I haven't been outside long enough for that to happen but I saw that happen to a kid who was walking home from school. I'm hoping to have one or more transfers here then leave in January. I feel like I can do more here but my mission is suddenly looking shorter so I don't want to stay for a 4th when I can be somewhere else on a different adventure. I don't speak Spanish very often. Supposedly my accent had gotten better..... I'm not sure how that works. Yes, I voted here in Alaska because my ballot never came and they can't refuse a voter. But the election was called well before people were done voting here. I wrote in Pres Jon Beesley for state legislator.  haha Yeah it's definitely getting to the dark time. We came out of church yesterday at 4 to the sun setting. We still have over a month before it gets to the darkest point.
The work is going really well. We're pretty consistently teaching more than I've taught in my mission, finding new people, seeing little miracles. Our Jewish investigator let us borrow a "tanakh" the Jewish study bible. It's interesting. It's in a different order than the KJV but to us it pretty much says that same thing so far. But man the more I get into that stuff the more I love the Book of Mormon. It really is the keystone of this, and can help us in sooooo many ways. And it's nice to know that the heavens are open and God speaks to his children. The author of this didn't stop speaking when his book went to press. Thanks for the email. I hope the broncos destroy and more importantly the texans haha cuidense
