99. Rio das Ostras, Rio de Janeiro

1 June 2015

Good morning family and friends, 

So this week was my official last week as a missionary for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints. It was an incredible week and one that I'll never forget. We helped a sister move in the rain, weeded an entire yard, said goodbyes to many beloved investigators and members, and had some incredible progress with our investigators. 

The most memorable experience from this week was Sunday. It was a normal meeting all the way through. Bishop was the final speaker and at the end of his talk he invited Elder Evans and I to the front to share our testimonies. If you weren't there you missed the two of us get teary eyed :D Then afterwards, just about every single ward member came and gave us a hug and wished us well on in our travels. An Irmão got about 40 members together for  a "Till we Meet" chorus. Hugs were had, presents were given, tears were shed, and it really put the capstone on my time here in Rio das Ostras. 

There's so much to be told still, and many stories that will come up here in the next few weeks, I'm so excited to see you guys this week!!!!! See you real soon!!!

Elder Siebers
