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

One year down...

Hey mom!
Glad to hear the vacation went well. I just hope grandpa can just relax and enjoy his family. I hope Nana can relax too.

Conference was great! We saw 3 of the sessions in English. I saw the final one in Spanish It was super hard to concentrate, especially with Elder Holland. The translator didn't have any inflection in his voice. But nonetheless I'll read the talks when the conference issue of the Liahona comes out.

That's so crazy Ms. J. got a hold of you. Such a small world, huh? I still remember her and the class.
We didn't baptize in March but it's still been fun. We have plenty of people progressing. I just think this month is the time to reap the rewards. It's sad, though, because I'm sure this is my last change in Palin. I've spent over half of my mission here. Its all good though. W. spent a lot of time in Bakersfield, right? They're going to open up that mission this year! President knows where we need to serve.

Hey got a letter from Bro. S. again. If you could get his email for me that would be great! I'd really like to send an email to Bishop W., too. 

Well things have been great. Next week I will have 1 year in the mission. Wow, where has the time gone? It's so true that this time just flies. I think I feel like this because these two years are dedicated entirely to the Lord and to service. His time runs so much faster than ours. We did the math yesterday in zone conference, and our mission comes out to roughly 2 minutes in God's time. Wow.......(But, beloved, be not ignorant of this one thing, that one day is with the Lord as a thousand years, and a thousand years as one day. 2 Peter 3:8)

Well, I love you guys a lot. Thanks for all the support that you've given me. Just another year......whoa. You guys are awesome. Love you so much.

Elder Butler
