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

Working, working, working

Hey Mom!

Well, you aren't going to believe how hard we've been working this month.  It's crazy but I LOVE this work.  It makes such a huge difference in people's lives.  Gives them focus and purpose.

Glad to hear that you get to see Grandpa. Hope he feels good while you and J are there.

Elder G (is a great son.  That is what we call them when we train so we remember how important it is to do this work,)  He is a champ! He's progressing so much. It's truly an honor to train him. 

So awesome Escuintlas going to be a stake. The work truly is booming. It's the stone cut out of the mountain. You just can't stop it. 

Well we're going to Antigua next week.  It is kind of touristy but cool anyway. I don't need a lot of cash. Just something in case I find something interesting for you guys to send home. Maybe i'll send a package home at my 1 year mark, because once Christmas rolls around I'll only have 4 months left! But don't worry about it. I hate talking about money.

Well I'm honored that someone thought that I had an impact on their life, especially since I mainly live in regret for what i did back then. I guess there's something we good we can take out of every experience. I'm almost positive I know who it is. Love that guy.

Well, you might have noticed how I've started out every paragraph with the word "well". I've fallen into a bad habit of saying the word "pues" at the beginning of every sentence lol. Please forgive me I know have bad habits in two languages!

I had some cool revelation this week. I realized why it's such a great blessing to have prophets,  Think about how many revelations God has given to our modern day prophets. The Family, Proclamation to the World, Sec. 138 of Doctrine and Covenants,prophetic counsel about personal  debt, etc. It's such a blessing to have them. I can't wait until conference to hear counsel from  our divinely called leaders!

Well I'm absolutely loving the mission. I can't believe we're already half way through this change. Time just doesn't exist in the mission. I'm just grateful for evey day that i get to go out and preach and truly help others come unto Christ. It's such a great blessing.

Well I love you guys with all my heart! I hope everything goes well this week for you guys, and know that I'm praying for you guys always!

Con Amor Eterno,
Elder Butler
