24-november-2009 letter

This week had been awesome. And we have been having a blast.
It's a little weird being in an English ward though,
so I don't get to speak Spanish as much, but it is
still a blast, and we get to teach english to spanish
speakers so I still get in lots of spanish
practice. I would say that I can say everything
that I really ever want to say, so I'm stoked to
learn how to teach everything in English Now.
To answer your question, yes i've
had a few baptims now and they were pretty awesome.
I'm stoked for thanksgiving, we have like 3 or 4 dinner
appointments. I MIGHT EXPLODE! But that would be okay,
because it is going to be sooooooooo good.
Tell everyone that I say Hi, and that I'm still
having a blast. I will pray for Cody, so Love you
all and talk to you next week.
Elder Rubert

Hey how goes it?
The work in this new area is a lot different because we spend a lot of time
with less-active members. We are living with members now which is weird, and
this is the first time on my mission where I have had to consistently teach
in English. I FORGOT HOW! But even though I'm speaking English with everyone
my Spanish is still getting better and better. I can speak spanish well
enough to teach an english class and be able to say everything that I want
to say and have enough vocab that I can give them new words. It's way fun.
THAT'S CRAZY WITH CODY! I hope he's doing better and let him know that I
hope he gets better.
And yeah I've had a couple of Baptisms so far, and am having a blast and the
Lord is blessing me with plenty of success.

P.S. I really fun spanish word: Parangamacutirimicuaro

Hey mom.
EVerything here is going awesome. I got transferred again today and now I am living in Buena park, if you can please send the package to :
Elder Benjamen Rubert
7532 Honduras Way
Buena Park, CA 90620
I should be here for a little while, but I'll keep you updated. And my favorite type of cookies are oatmeal/peanut butter cookies. And the Cd-player, if you could find one that can plug into the wall to charge, because it is just for the apartment, we have cd-players in the car I'm driving. I'm driving a really nice brand new toyota corolla 2010 this transfer. This puppy's got some juice. My new companion's name is Elder Hesterly, and I'm living with Elder Horsfall again,THis transfer is stacked.
We get the following:
Mission Conference
Call Home
This is going to be an awesome transfer, but now I'm in an English ward so it will be weird, and I'll have to keep up my spanish so that I don't lose any of it.
I love you guys and take care.
Elder Rubert

My new apartment is kind of weird, I haven't gotten used to it quite yet. But it is so dirty, since my last two apartments have been big roomy and spacious with just missionaries living there, but now I live with a member and his mom. But I'm stoked that I get to drive again. First I got to drive the Mazda 3 in compton and now I get to drive the 2010 Corolla (it' nice!). And yesterday I got to see the whole trifecta of amazing cars. The new 2010 fleet Dodge Challenger RTS, Camarro SS, and the Mustang GT. It was a beautiful day. Everyone in california has nice cars but not house. It seems to me like they are thinking upside down and backwards.

No I can't believe that it is November. It's still 85 and sunny and feels like a good summer day here. It's crazy that this is the end of my second transfer, next week I'll probably be somewhere else and it will be fun getting to learn a whole new area again. And to answer your question, I don't know about the gift card, because there are not the same stores in every area and I don't know where I'm going, so if she sends like just one of the visa or mastercard giftcards that would be perfect, but let her know that she doesn't really need to send me anything. And to answer the other question I don't know about that either, I was told that we normally just call home from a members phone, so I don't know whether it will be a cell phone or a house phone. Other than that, everything here is going great, we should have a pretty full weekend here and have lots of success. Sounds like everything over there is going well and that you guys are all having lots of fun. I still haven't heard anything from Matthew, and I'm waiting on that little bugger. Love you guys, have an awesome week!

Brock got his call to Argentina, which mission. I have lots of friends that he needs to say hi to when he gets there. THATS AMAZING!!!!! Sounds like Halloween went well, and I just to let you know we went tracting on Halloween and it didn't turn out for us nearly as well as it turned out for everyone else probably. Well California is still sunny and hot even though we are in November. I get confused when its in the 90's and I look at my planner and see that it is November.

Keep being awesome and reading the Book of Mormon.

Love ya

Elder Rubert
