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 Tellez 12-17-12 email

Hello family, How is everyone doing? I am super good. First of all thank you everyone for your emails. I'm thankful for your support. I'm sorry aunt Becca for not writing you. Mama, I have been dreaming in spanish since the MTC, haha. They are really weird. How is Gramma doing? I didn't hear from her this week. I hope that she is alright. This week was good. We didn't have anybody to baptize this week, but on Saturday, we talked with this old investigator who just came to church that day and he said that he wanted to get baptized there and then and that is just what we did. I don't have pictures because I didn't have my camera with me. We have two baptisms this week, the mom and brother of the girl that was baptized last week (the miracle baptism). Also, a bunch of my friends ended their missions today, Elder Sulzen (my buddy here in Martinez), Elder Valdez (my old companion), Elder Wilhelm (my first district leader in the mission), Elder LaBianca (my zone leader in Xalapa) and more. It was weird to see Elder Sulzen go like 2 hours ago and it made me think that in just 9 months I will be in the same moment. Thank you for your love and support. Christmas is next week and I will be Skyping you Monday night. I'm hoping that there will not be as many people as there were last Christmas but I think that you said that the Christmas Eve will be at our house, ahhhhhh. It's ok then. The important thing is that I will get to see you. Ok, time to go. I love you all. Stay happy.
