This last week has been awesome! We just had a baptism on Saturday and then this past weekend the zone had 9. We were really blessed by the Lord to be able to see all these people come unto him and make the covenant of baptism. I love missionary work, it's the greatest work on Earth. I am hoping that everything is still going great out there with all of you and that you are taking every opportunity that you have to share the gospel. I have now been here in Cypress for about 6 months (mas o menos) and I am loving the ward more and more every week. I love the California Saints and everything that they do.

I love you all and hope all continues well,

Hola, This week has been great, and this next week is going to be even better. Kaj's baptism is on Saturday, and this last week he had to explain all of the articles of faith to his buddy and he did! A+ job too, if I do say so myself. Everything else is going great too. I got an awesome letter from the gang that was over at Kara's house for FHE that had some killer testimonies in it. I have now been in the Cypress 1st ward for about 6 months and am loving every minute of it. I hope everything is going great over there and I'm also stoked to see that Matt went on a date. WOOT! I love the mission it is the best opportunity in the world to grow closer to the Lord and find out more how often the Lord puts His hand ount to help us in our lives. This is His true modern day work, and I am grateful and humbled at the opportunity that I have to serve as one of his servants.
I love you all, Elder Rubert

Hola Familia,

This last week has been amazing. We have been looking for lots of new people to teach and am still having no luck tracting, but we found some part-member families that are showing some real potential. We have been working really hard and are excited that we are getting closer to Kaj's baptism. The Cypress 1st ward is awesome. Sounds like you guys are doing great with the new car. Hearing that Garrett is an Elder now is awesome. Hope everything keeps going well and I wish that I could say that I'm cold.

Conference was awesome!! What made it even better is that the day before conference that we had Zone Conference which was amazing. And then even better is that this morning we had the opportunity to go to the temple. Now I have been to the Newport Beach Temple and the Los Angeles Temple. Both amazingly majestic buildings. So this last week has been a spiritual powerhouse.

Sounds like you all had a great Easter and a great Easter dinner as well. I love turkey! The work here in this area is going great, and I just got an e-mail from Elder Manship who said that he has three baptisms coming up which should be good. His spanish has progressed a lot. I hope that you all took some extra time to ponder the messages that we recieved this conference and thought about the wonderful reason that we celebrate this holiday. It is a great holiday that I feel bad for never truly taking advantage of before, as a time to reflect and turn my thoughts to our Savior who made it all possible for us to remain with our families after death. I thank Him for all that He has given me and our family, and the wonderful blessings that we have with the Gospel in our lives.

I hope that you all have an amazing week and that you are listening for revelation,

Elder Rubert
