27-jun-201 letter

This week went great. We had lots of chances to go and teach. More than I thought that we were going to be able to get. And then had a bunch of doctor appointments as well. Yesterday we had a departing fireside for the first time and it went amazingly well. We were able to invite all of our recent converts from our entire mission and then bear testimony to the congregation of them and the missionaries that brought their investigators. It was amazing. Then they had us sing a departing song which actually turned our pretty well. Lucky for us we had a lot of choir people in our group of departing missionaries. This morning we swung by Hno. Villalobo's house to take pictures with him and in his tree-house which was really good. I'm excited that tonight we have President's dinner that is going to be great and then tomorrow I'll see you all at the airport. Yesterday we had a miracle drop into our laps as well. We were in church and nobody came that we had invited but we kept getting a phonecall from a restricted number. I got up during gospel principles class and answered when they called again and it was a lady named Teresa Arias. She had just come across a pass-a-long card that Elders Viecco and Wayman had dropped off at their house about four months ago and wanted us to stop by. We went by and had an amazing first lesson where the spirit had a chance to bear testimony so that they could all know that the message is true. They are coming to church this next week and will be baptized in a couple. I couldn't have asked for a better last day of proselyting in the area. Well I love you all. I know that my Savior lives, He is the Holy One of Israel. Through his infinite atonement we can all one day receive the forgiveness that we all seek and acheive our full potential as sons and daughters of God. I love this missionary work and am excited to continue on with it working with the missionaries back home. I love you all once again.
Elder Rubert
