California Screen Writers

Elder Ruby is doing really great.  He didn't give us much to write about this week for the blog.  He did not get transferred, so he will be in San Louis Obispo for at least 6 more weeks.  He will continue in SLO as a Zone Leader.  He arrived in SLO when college was just getting out, so he's excited to still be there when the colleges start up again.  For those of you that don't know, SLO is where Cal Poly is located.

Sister Felix wrote on their mission blog about a fireside in a different area of the mission.  From what I can tell, Elder Ruby did not attend this fireside, but it sounds like the speakers were great.  Here is what she wrote:

Just a FYI:
A couple of weeks ago two screen writers for Despicable Me 1 and 2, The Lorax, Horton Hears a Who and other movies spoke at a fireside in Simi Valley.  Cinco Paul and Ken Dario are members of the Church.  They related those movies to the Gospel and our own lives.  Horton, from Horton Hears a Who, is Joseph Smith. Someone who knows they have heard (seen) something and is persecuted for it and eventually changes the lives of millions.
In Despicable 1 Gru is a villain and Baxter is a super villain.  They are opposites.  There is opposition in all things.  Gru changed from evil to good due to the influence of the girls.

These men have stayed true to their values in their profession.
