July 25, letter from Elder Trevor Rubow!

Nice to see that my son is very serious and studious at all times.

Here is whats been going down.  

The language is coming!  I am actually now able to have a decent conversation with people.  The vocabulary is growing and the grammar is clicking.  Just yesterday I taught an awesome lesson using pretty well 95% Hiligaynon.  I cannot thank the Lord enough for this blessing.  I know it is through him I am able to do this. It is amazing how the Lord has prepared me to serve.  A lot of missionaries here are having difficulties because of problems they either did not resolve them or could not leave them.  I really believe this is going to be the best two years!!  Glory be to God forever!  I put my trust in Him forever!  

I've also had the opportunity to have a lot of bonding time with the other missionaries.  I hope we are friends for life!  They are super cool!

Other then that it hasnt really changed much here.  soooooo yay!  Two more weeks till I leave! (mom note:  leave the Missionary Training Center for the Philippines)

The scripture of the week is Mosiah 4.  I love that one!

Finally I end with my Hiligaynon
Kabalo ako nga matuod ang ebanghelyo ni JesuKristo.  Naga polangga ako ang Libro Ni Mormon.  Nagapasalamat kami para sa mga pamilya.  Kabalo ako nga pwede pagtuo maghatagan kalipay kita.  Sa ngalan ni JesuKristo, amen!

So I am trying to send you pictures and its not working right now.  ill try again later!  I miss you so much!  Seriously I do!  Do take care and know that God loves you!  I cannot wait for next week!

Love Elder Rubow


  1. Rachel...What an amazing letter from your missionary. He is so humble and his testimony was amazing (even though I can't read it). Thank you for sharing!

    1. I know! He's been in the MTC only since July 2nd. It is amazing what the Lord can do with our kids when we hand them over completely to him! I can't read his testimony either :) but it's pretty cool!!!

    1. You were supposed to be home today so I could do a happy dance and show you the book I made him!!! :D

  3. Good to see that he's having fun along with the hard work that he's putting in. He is an exemplary young man Rachel - you really must be so proud of him x

    1. This is one of the biggest positive characteristics that Mr. T has. I can remember even when he was little, any task we were doing that was mundane, boring, hard, etc..... Mr. T would come along and get us all laughing and having fun. The boy is all cheer. I am proud of him. He's a lot like his Dad. His Dad is of the more serious nature but his Dad is never complaining and gets to. The goofy cheeriness, I proudly claim that. :)


Go know ya wanna comment!
