Go ye therefore, and teach all nations,
baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost:
Teaching them to observe all things whatsoever I have commanded you.
Matthew 28:19-20

Hey mom!

Well, I'M A TRAINER! My kid is awesome. His name is Elder G. 
 He's waiting for his visa to go to Mexico. I hope he can stay here
 the full six weeks. If he leaves in the middle of this change, it
will probably mean i'll stay in Palin for another change, which 
means i will have spent a third of my mission in Palin.

The change meeting was crazy. We opened up another 6 or 7 areas, and
we received a ton of missionaries. The work is growing rapidly.
President told us about how the number of mission calls has
skyrocketed. I'm so glad I'm part of this work.
Well my last week wasn't bad at all. I remembered what 
President Ucthdorf said 2 conference's ago. The merciful obtain mercy.
I applied that and it's paid off. It also says in Mosiah 4 that people
who are humble will always retain forgiveness of their sins. I've felt
it a lot more throughout my life.

Thanks for the money! Me mejorare para ahorrar mis quetzalitos!

Hey no worries if you can't find the hoodie. It's just a white and
black Nike hoodie. The extra ties are to give to other missionaries
and members. You are right though, the pacas have ties for pretty
cheap. No worries if you can't find/send them. No tengan pena. but if
you could send a digital alarm clock, that would be wonderful. The
wind up ones don't work very well.

Man that stinks about the weather. I'm so spoiled here because of the
wonderful weather that we have. It's always super nice here in Palin.

Man it's so crazy that I've been here in the misison for 10 months.
It's gone by way too quick.

Well i read last week in Alma about how they stood for the freedom and
their religion. I loved how it said that they also stood for their
sacred duty to protect their wives and children. The family truly is
the essential unit in the plan of God. It's helped me to remember what
I fight for as well.

What have you guys been reading? How has the Book of Mormon truly
helped you become more fully converted to the Gospel of Jesus Christ?
What's you favorite scripture and how has it helped you.

Well pray for me that I'll be able to be a good trainer. President is
changing the mission even more. He wants this generation to be better
than the next. He's starting to have really young missionaries train.
I just hope I can live up to the expectation.

Love you guys for everything you do. Cuidese mucho! Love you guys with
all my heart.

Con Amor Eterno,
Elder Butler
