Elder Ruby hasn't said much in his letters lately. They have been very short and he apologized for not writing us this past week. I know he is busy and doing well. That is what matters. He did tell us that a girl they have been working with, named Patience, has set a date for baptism. That's exciting! This past Monday they had a Zone Activity. All the missionaries in his zone were getting together to carve pumpkins. That sounds like fun. He will send us pictures.
Here is his testimony from this past letter:
The words of the prophets have sunk and are continuing to sink deep into my heart. I am coming to more fully accept Christ into my life. I do my best to do as Elder McConkie suggests and accept the scriptures as the mind and will of God. My studies have focused greatly on the doctrines of grace, mercy, justice, and love. My testimony in the reality of Christ and a loving, just, merciful, gracious God has grown; and my awe, gratitude, and wonder in the Atonement of Christ are expanding.
I'm sorry this is so short and not very informative. We will try again next week:)
October 2015 Zone Conference
In a different area than Hyrum, the church building the mission president usually uses for interviews was being fumagated. This is what it looks like in California. Wow!
