06-OCT-2009 Letter

Yes I had a chance to watch conference, it was amazing. I thought Elder Holland's talk was amazing. It's crazy that another temple is going up in Utah again. Tell Duane, Jacob, and the new baby happy birthday for me. That's crazy that the baby is already here. When I left, which feels like yesterday, there was still plenty of time until the baby was coming. Tell everyone down in Salt Lake hi for me while your there. Wish you guys luck with everything. This week we have had so much happening. Getting ready for conference and trying to get all of our investigators and less active members to come. Then Sunday was amazing. We got to the church at like 8:30 for the Choir broadcast, then we got to stay for both sessions of conference, and then afterward we got to go and see people get baptized. It was amazing. I was so exhausted because I don't think I have felt the spirit that strong for so long ever in my life. IT DRAINED ME COMPLETELY. but. I was also able to sleep like a baby so thats the good part. Now I promised Corbett that I would send out a quiz for everyone about conference. Now if everyone that could possibly take this quiz and then send it to me back with their answers in an e-mail that would be awesome(P.S. My email is benrubert@myldsmail.net). And see if Brother Hulme could answer this quiz for me as well. Ok, so here it goes.

2. What did David A. Bednar say are the three things that we need to do to become more diligent and concerned at home(I think we do pretty good at this one!)? And Is there anything else that you could add on to this principle?

3. Dieter F. Uchtdorf talked to us about what we should be known for. What did you learn from this talk and what do you want to be known for? Saturday Afternoon

7. What did Walter F. Gonzalez say that we could do to make the Book of Mormon the most well read and applied book in the world? and How can we apply this in our every day lives?

Sunday Morning
11. Henry B. Eyring says that we must all become better, because it is a commandment. He also focused a lot on the family. How can we use his suggestions on the family to better improve our goal of becoming "perfect"? (Because God never commands us to do something that isn't possible, and He commanded us to "be perfect". SO HOW DOES THAT WORK?)

Well that is it for the conference quiz. Wow that took a lot longer to write then I thought that it would. Hope to hear from everyone and that everyone is having a blast. I know I am.

Oh, and for this transfer I'm staying in Compton so this will be where I'm at:

It's better for mail to go there so if you have a different address. There is the new one.

Love you all. (Love was a huge theme this conference.) Ciao, Elder Rubert
