31-JAN-2011 - Letter

Hola Familia,

This week was a little different than normal. I was a little out of it due to a cold that had been going around and wasn't as productive as I normally like to be. But Elder Harris and I still were able to go out and teach some really good lessons this week that helped some of our investigators out a bunch. We realized today that we are halfway through this transfer already and time is flying! This week we have ZLC, next week we have Zone Conference, and then the next week is transfers. We are working and praying really hard to be able to see someone get baptized while Elder Harris and I are still together (at the end of the transfer we will have been together for 4 1/2 months). We are working really hard right now as well, still getting the members a little more excited to help out in the work. As a mission this year we have a high baptismal goal that we will only be able to reach if we involve the members fully in the work. I love the Lord's work. This week I have been able to develop a lot more patience and dependance upon him. I was assigned to give a talk in sacrament meeting yesterday, but the entire week I'd just been coughing up a storm and having a really runny nose. Sunday morning came and I was still feeling a little down. I said a pray that I would have the strength to get up and give my talk and then we went to church. I was coughing and blowing my nose on the stand for the whole first half of the meeting, and then when it came my turn to speak I was able to stand up and speak for 20 minutes without any health problems at all. Then when I sat down it all came back. :( But I did have a big testimony builder that the Lord will help you in your moment of need. I was healthy for 20 minutes yesterday thanks to Him. I'm feeling a lot better today and hope that the whole cold thing is behing me now. I love you all,


Elder Rubert
