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.

Hey! So I don't know if you noticed but I sent some pics to Danny's e-mail, so enjoy (: We had a good Easter both us and the Sisters spent dinner at the Ciuncis' (Ward Mission Leader's Family) it was really good. I love Sister Ciunci's food, it's probably the best that I've had on my mission and she likes to spoil us too. After dinner we delivered food to and visited one of the widows in our ward, she is 95 years old and is usually pretty lonely. So our Easter Sunday was good we also taught for 10 minutes in Primary, we talked about different ways to share the gifts that Christ has given us to others. As I said before in Danny's e-mail we had 1 lesson with an investigator this week but we had 21 lessons with members. And answering your question about the spirit world, we do explain that there is a paradise and a prison and we do talk about people getting the opportunity to hear about the gospel in the spirit world. However, we do not go into very much detail about the matter unless the investigator has any questions regarding the subject. So generally it's like as you said very short, simply, and brief; very basic.
It's good that you were able to have fun with the Elders by playing Yugioh and Fooseball. Haha I haven't played Fooseball in a while, Elder Curtis might have been able to take me, keyword: 'might' (: The last time I played Fooseball was back when I was in Weston, but I have played a little bit of pool every now and then. 
Uh, Mom you went tracting. Tracting is gross it's the most ineffective tactic in missionary work, it should be the last thing that missionaries should ever do; especially if your in a trio. Too bad all of the Hermanas appointments fell through, that's never fun. So how is Dad doing, being the Ward Mission Leader and taking care of all these missionaries?
Sounds like a lot is going on this week, STAAR Tests, golf tournaments, working on the upstairs, seminary, school, etc Looks like you all have a full week. Good luck in testing and playing golf. I can't wait for General Conference and yes I will let you know if I hear anything from Lee. Hope you all have a great week.
