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 was given permission by his mission President to leave July 17th to attend a sealing in Oregon and then he would come home from there which would be the 18th. I gather this couple, his first baptism in the field, is really close to him or something. I think he was the one to be the witness and signature on their marriage certificate and they really want him to be there. He has been trying to decide because if he does go he will miss the final meetings. etc... with all the missionaries that will be going home on July 24th.
