19-jan-2010 letter

Hello Everyone,
This week has been awesome. Elder Knight and I have been teaching up a storm and also speaking of storms, the last couple of days we've been tracting in the rain. Oh, how I missed the rain. It was cool. I think it was the first time that I have seen anything actually flowing in Coyote Creek. We just had an amazing stake conference this last sunday that was satelite broadcasted to several stakes in southern California and we got to hear from Bishop Edgley, Sister Matsumori, Elder Holland, and Elder Uchtdorf. It was really sweet. We got to hear a ton of good "get up and go" type of messages as only those speakers can give. Soooooooooooooooooo sweet. This morning we got up way early to wake up some of our recent converts up for seminary. Ugggggggggggh. I forgot what waking up at 5:30 was like. But it was all good, we were able to get them to seminary, now the hard part is they have to start paying attention. For anyone that doesn't know my seminary experience, it reminds me a lot of these boys. I hope everyone is having fun in Florida! Apparently last week Duane, Trina, and the gang were like 5 minutes from my house at Disneyland which is pretty cool. I got some good pictures from them. Included is a picture of our days and I will send a couple of more pictures that are kind of fun.
Love you guys,
Elder Rubert

Well this last week has been awesome. We have been teaching a couple of people for a while now and they are progressing more and more each time that we see them. Thanks for the e-mail, and that picture is from the reflections of christ exhibit that was here. You got the other picture of the bike right! Pretty sweet! I was stoked when Brother walker asked me if I wanted a picture sitting on it. I couldn't say no to something like that. I love the people here and the ward right now is doing awesome. George, the member that we live with, is looking at the blog for things written about him so I am going to say that he made some pretty killer waffles this morning. We have stake conference coming up this next weekend so that should be a little different and I hope that there will be an amazing talk given. I am so stoked to be here in SoCal with Elder Knight just serving the people.
Love you all.
Ciao, Elder Rubert
P.S. and yesterday I tried making that Jell-O cake that says "goof-proof" on it and we are going to try it today. I hope that I didn't mess it up?!

Note: I will try and get Ben's pictures scanned into the blog this week.

Everything is going good here. I was told by Brother De Burgh that he came by and saw you all right after new years and dropped off my box. If I could request one of the new fiesta bowl shirts when they get them out that would be awesome. I have the old one, but a new one would be nice. This week has been awesome. I've started this new transfer and I'm training a new missionary from Richfield, Utah, named Elder Knight. He is lots of fun and I'm sending you some pics in the mail that you can look at too. Elder Horsfall and I have had fun living together at George's house. And remember, that the number that George called you at is a number that you can call and let him know if there is anything that I really need to know, and then like when you send a package he will make sure that it get's here and then give you a confirmation call. He's better than UPS!!! But I'm happy to hear that everything is going well with you.
Keep being awesome!
Ciao,Elder Rubert
