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 Escobar 7-8-13

Hello! Good afternoon!
This has been a very eventful week! 4th of July was crazy. Our whole district went to New Britain to watch a crazy firework show. Afterwards, we went to Denny's. It was about 12:45am when we finally got our food and we got home at 1:50am. It was super fun.

Throughout the week Elder Watson and I have been getting techy and have been constructing Google Drives, Calendars, and Spreadsheets for our ward (so that we can relay info better). Thank you yet again for the pics, I will be creating my power-point presentation shortly.

I have some sad news though. On Sunday, Gloria and Ian dropped us. It had to happen, neither of them disagree with anything that we've taught them and they told us that they are eternally grateful for us and all of the members in Avon Ward. The reason why they dropped us is because Gloria is about to engage her ex-husband in court for full custody of Ian. And apparently, her ex doesn't like the fact that Ian has been investigating the church. So she doesn't want that to hurt her case and cause her to lose custody. So we were dropped. We still have a good relationship with her and Ian, but we just need to give them a little space till this whole ordeal is over. I hope that court doesn't take too long, I don't want them to lose their fire and testimonies. Gloria and Ian are in good hands though, there are several members that live right across from them in the apartment complex.
We've noticed that in the location where the Hartford Temple will be built that there have moving trucks and demolition crews on the site. So hopefully, everything is still on schedule for the groundbreaking in August (:
Church on Sunday was good. We taught the Gospel Principles class. The topic was Scriptures, but we went into detail in talking about studying the scriptures by showing the class how we study everyday. It went well.
Yesterday just as you know, we were at Six Flags. Jeff Collins Jr., a Young Single Adult in the ward took us. He's really cool. My MSF card wasn't working in Six Flags so I had to resort to my Debit, sorry. We had a blast though. We rode Goliath (it's not a ride for the faint of heart) 6 times. Right after we got off the last time we rode it, 2 other missionaries that were waiting in line got on. And as the ride commenced it stalled in the middle of the ride. So they were stuck on the ride for 30 minutes until a maintenance crew escorted them off. Other than that we had no problems. I got a pretty good tan.
This morning was Zone Meeting and another missionary and I were asked to bear our testimonies since we will be leaving this coming transfer. It was the beginning of who knows how many farewell testimonies I will give in the coming weeks. It felt so weird! I don't like it. Anyways, everyone thanked me and said that I will be missed. I think this was one of the first times that I actually realized that I will really be gone soon. Crazy!!! August is pretty much here, ahhhhhhhhhh!
Mom you are kicking it in high gear, cleaning the pantry and garage pretty much by yourself. And by all means get Danny away from the TV and computer. It's good that Dad and Aaron are having a good time at Sea Base. It's good that 'The Other Side of Heaven' is one of Danny's favorite movies. I would have never imagined that. Anyways, transfer texts are this Saturday. Next P-Day we will be going to Six Flags, Jeff wanted to go again. We are getting some other missionaries to go. Hope you all have a great week. I love each and every single one of you. See you soon.
Elder Everett Alan Escobar
