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.

Six Flags was awesome! We had a blast and we are planning another trip for later this month, put that season pass to work and get the most out of it! 

Things have calmed down a little bit, but there always seems to be something opposing each and every single one of us. As of right now there is one missionary in our district who is causing quite a bit of trouble and hindering the work, but he goes home in 4 days so that solves the problem. Only 4 more days... Then we can breathe and have peace. Anyways, this week we did service at a local food pantry, 'Gifts of Love' which was good. We serve there 3 times a week for 3 hours. We have been teaching our overwhelmingly solid investigators Gloria and Ian. They are so prepared and ready to get baptized it's ridiculous. The next lesson that we will be having with them we will be setting a baptismal date for both of them. They're amazing and they are pretty much already a part of our ward. It's amazing to see all of this happen just in 2 weeks! It's a privilege to just behold something like this happen. They are just soaking everything in. We have also been working with members in trying to help them develop a family missionary plan. So overall this week was good. I expect the work to pick up even more near the end of next week, we'll be able to accomplish a lot more.

So why is Dad, Aaron, and Danny breaking in the upstairs for me? And that's hilariously-gross that all three of them pretty much had a gas bath up there. Well it's good to hear that the Spanish Branch is back on track and as expected there are a lot of changes that have and will be made because of that. These next 2 months are going to be crazy for all of us, but it will work out and we'll meet back up with each other for the first time in 2 years. And about the boxes, no I do not have the reimbursement money anymore. I have 5 large flat-rate boxes packed and they each cost like $17,  however I'm going to try and see if I can get the boxes discounted because all of it is literature and media. So I don't know what the total cost will be in the end. But without the discount it will be like $85 or somewhere around there. I came up with a 20-week exercise regimen (I've been putting it together for almost 2 transfers now) but I'm done now. I will show it to you in August and hopefully it will help Dad as well in his journey through weight-loss. Actually I don't hope that it will help, I know that it will help. I'm pretty sure that he could do it. I'm going to start it when I get home as well. Hope you guys have a great week and that you keep progressing like investigators to the church should haha.

PS You better let Danny swim all summer! Plus, you never know, he might be the next Michael Phelps. Probably not, but you never know.
