Hola Familia,

Sounds like everything is going great with everyone and that you are all going to have a blast at the family reunion for the 4th. This last week I have seen some miracles and been able to be led to the people the Lord has been preparing. I went on splits last week with Elder Rasmussen and we both had an opportunity to run into someone that had been praying for us to come. It was a great day and we were able to truly feel the love of the Lord for his children and how He uses His servants to answer our prayers.

Tomorrow we will have a new mission president and that will be here and on Monday we get to meet him. I'm excited to see who the Lord has called to come and work with us in this part of His vineyard and to see how He will guide us and direct us.

Love you all,
Elder Rubert
P.S. I have been putting this off for a while, but do Russel and Shauna know the Blake family that on a mission here. Sister Blake said she knows them and that Uncle Russell laid their wood floor in their house and that she used to teach Justin.

This week has been awesome and I have been truly blessed with the chance to have a native Spanish speaking companion. It helps a lot to fix some of the big problems that I had with my Spanish. This week we have had lots of opportunities to teach and talk to new people. I think that I'm going to be able to see someone get baptized on my birthday too.( Best missionary birthday ever!) I hope everything is going great with all of you and hope to hear from you soon.

This last week has been great and we have been blessed a lot with lots of people to teach and Elder Soelberg and I went out with a bang. Then today is the first day of the new transfer and my new companion is Elder Soto.

He grew up in Mexico and moved to Fresno California when he was 9. So I'm excited to still be here in the 2nd ward. Thanks for the banana bars. They were awesome!! This transfer is going to be awesome and I am excited to see what the Lord has in store.
Love ya,
Elder Rubert

Hey!Corbett got his mission call!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Sounds like you got to know Baker City, Oregon. Last time I was there was for a Lacrosse Tournament when I was in High School and it didn't look like much then. This last week has been amazing! We've been teaching and finding people like crazy that are prepared to receive the gospel. Hopefully I stay here another transfer so I can see them get baptized. The Lord has truly blessed us this week and we have been seeing that all over the mission the missionaries are finding prepared people this month. I hope that you all are still having fun and living well.
Love you all,
Elder Rubert

This last week has been amazing and I can't believe that it is June already. Time really does fly. Elder Soelberg and I have been able to teach a lot of great people here in Hawaiian Gardens this week and see a lot of them truly come closer unto Christ. We were also able to see Eric get baptized on Saturday which was an amazing experience as always. Other than we have been having lots of really hot days already and its barely starting to be summer. You've got to love California weather right! Love you all and keep being awesome!
