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 2-18-13 email
Hello lovely family, All is well in Martinez. This week was amazing. We baptized a man named Miguel Angel on Sunday. We also finally finished baptizing the family of Rosalba (we baptized her two oldest sons [Eduardo and Kevin]). President and Sister Lopez came to the baptismal service of Kevin and Eduardo, because they were with us when we first taught Rosalba. An interesting fact: Kevin is the reason why all of his family are members now. One day in November, he was sitting on the curb when our companions in downtown Martinez sat down and talked to him. Later, they passed the referral to Elder Carmona and me and that same day we went over to talk to him. He wasn't there when we went to his house, instead we talked with his brother, Yosemir, there at the gate (he wouldn't let us enter). Now, Yosemir and Carlos (another brother) are priests and bless the sacrament every Sunday and go out visiting with us almost everyday. Rosalba has a calling in the Relief Society. Her niece and her two kids were baptized. This Sunday, Kevin will recieve the aaronic priesthood and baptize his girlfriend. We are getting Eduardo and Kevin ready to recieve the melchizedek priesthood (Eduardo is 25 and Kevin is 19). Kevin, Yosemir, and Carlos are preparing to go on a mission. All in all, 8 people in this family have completely changed their lives in the past 3 months for the better, TRUE CONVERTS. I won't know if I am being transferred until tonight. So, I will tell you next Monday. I love you all.
