I'll just paraphrase Elder Waddell's letter since much of it was just short answers to some of my questions. He loved conference and of course the addresses on missionary service were his favorites. The photo above of his companion shows how much snow they have received lately. They drive up to Wasilla weekly to teach an investigator and that is going well. He is excited to skype on Mother's day and connect with us. He loves missionary work and is excited to come home in 3 1/2 months but yet sad to leave. He loves it there.
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.
