YEah I got the box, and I'm stoked to be training in the first ward, I meet my new companion later today, but until then Elder Horsfall and I are companions and doing the normal P-day stuff. But nothing new to report yet.
Have a good New year!

This week has been pretty good we were able to go to the ward party on saturday and listen to Britney Buchanon sing and visit with our recent converts and some investigators a little bit. I got your package that you sent, and I also got the package that Duane, Trina, and the gang sent too! Thanks for everything. I also got a letter from the Timberline Seminary that was really awesome! Except for that everyone signed it except for Matthew. Hope everything is still going good for Christmas, next week I'll email you what time I'll be calling home, because right now I really don't know. That is going to be a really busy day. But just wanted to write and say Hi!Ciao,Elder Rubert

I haven't gotten the package yet but it should get here tomorrow if you shipped it yesterday. So sounds like everything is going good there. I'm stoked you guys got snow. It rained a little yesterday but that was about it. I have an L.L. Bean catalog that I asked a member if I could have and I'm living my winter through the pictures of snow in there. Now there is a lot of L.L.Bean stuff that I want to get when I get off my mission lol. Now that's good advertising, send pictures of snow to people in California where there is none?! But other than that, this last week has been awesome we've been teaching a lot of friends of the youth of the ward because all the old people have to work and say they don't feel comfortable sharing the gospel with their friends. Don't be those lame old people! Well I'm stoked that Christmas is coming up, and I get to go and have lunch at President's house today.So nothing much else is new. But Love you guys,
Ciao,Elder Rubert
p.s. someone from here in cypress is going to nick's mission so that should be sick!

Everything here is going great and we are having some really great success. We taught this girl last night that was just an amazing lesson and I almost felt like the Spirit was making it so that we could all fly. I haven't had goosebumps like that in a long time. That was awesome that George got to call you guys, he said that he caught Dad a little offguard when he forgot what my last name was. So I told him he should have called you but he just called the house. But whatever. December can't be here already! My mission just started and now its almost 25% done:(. Time really does fly out here and it is crazy to think back and see all that has happened in this short amount of time. I'm still trying to get used to seeing Christmas lights up and it being mid 80's with no clouds. Its really weird. Everyone here is awesome though, I was scared when I got called to an English ward because I had forgotten how to teach in English and I didin't want to lose my Spanish, but I'm seeing that if I'm obedient that the Lord has helped me in my English teaching and my Spanish keeps improving everyday too. I'm stoked for Christmas, and guess what. I got my OnePiece stickers from Kara in the mail and they are totally awesome!!!! I hope that you all had an amazing thanksgiving and that everyone keeps studying in school and doesn't forget completly everything like I always did on my Christmas breaks. Oh, and to answer Dad's question ; Parangamacutirimicuaro is a indian city in Mexico. I'm pretty sure that's how you spell it. But I know that's how it's said.
Well Love you guys,
Elder Rubert
