Ruben Mata, Worker

Ruben Mata was born on August 11th, 1945. He became a worker for the 2x2 organization in California.

Ruben was in California in the late 80's and early 90's, visiting Bakersfield, CA. One of his companions was Ralph MacDonald. Ruben Mata attended Button Willow convention.

Ruben Mata preached the 2x2 gospel in Mexico. He stayed in the homes of the friends of the workers. Ruben Mata also was a child molester. It's been reported to me that workers in the USA helped ferry Ruben out of the country of Mexico into the USA to avoid child sex crimes prosecution by Mexican authorities.

From 1982-83 Ruben preached in Guadalajara, Jalisco, Mexico.

While in the USA, Ruben continued his pedophile activities. Law enforcement in the USA were notified as Ruben continued his sexual crime spree. After many more children were molested, the authorities finally caught Ruben Mata.

Conviction of Ruben Mata

Ruben was convicted by the state of California for sex crimes, three counts. Ruben R Mata, Case CC628419 in Santa Clara County, file date 5/4/2006, party id 1138114508. Hall of Justice, 408-808-6600. Ruben was booked at Elmwood Correctional Facility on May 23rd, 2006.

Sentencing of Ruben Mata

Ruben Mata was sentenced 36 years to life. He was not eligible for parole. Ruben was denied bail. Ruben died in prison.

"The perverted acts that Ruben performed on his victims do not bear writing or verbalizing. They were horrific. These things happened around the corner of the house, in the garage, in the back yard, in the bedroom on the other side of the wall where his companion was talking with the parents.... This was told us by a mother of one of the victims." - Scott Parish, former 2x2 elder)

I believe that Eldon Tenniswood and Dick Middleton were the overseers in California at the time of the cover-up of Ruben Mata. It was under the supervision of Eldon Tenniswood and Dick Middleton that Ruben Mata was sent to meetings where children were present without warning the parents or the kids or the meeting elder.

To open their eyes, and to turn them from darkness to light, and from the power of Satan unto God, that they may receive forgiveness of sins, and inheritance among them which are sanctified by faith that is in me. - Jesus Christ speaking to Saul, see Act 26:18, see Salvation through Jesus Christ.
