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

Last week of February

Hey mom!

The temple trip was great. I absolutely love it. can't really expound details, but it was so great. I love going to the temple. Hey when I get home we're going to go to the temple more! I think that going once a week is a pretty reasonable goal. I feel like it would be one of the best uses of my time.

Well it's official. I've got my return information. Wow, time has gone by so quick. I can't believe it.......It's going to be a little interesting in our area. We had 2 sets of missionaries in our ward. They're going to close the second area. My companion and I are going to work in all of Barrio Cerro Grande! I'm excited! Our areas really small, so we're going to be able to reach out and find more people! I feel sad, though. Elder Fraughton is easily one of my best buddies in the mission. We thought he might've stayed for one more change.  We're going to need to be firing on all cylinders here in the zone. Our goal for March is 24 baptisms. That'll be the new record for most baptisms in a month in the stake. I just hope we can get it done. Hopefully this last change we'll be able to get some more miracles here. 

I found out last week that yet another person that Elder V. and I visited in Mezquital got baptized. It makes me glad to know that none of our efforts are wasted. 

Well the weather is still the same here. It doesn't really change. Actually, it's been getting a little hotter here. I'm losing weight! I've been drinking more water and I'm not eating tons of junkfood. I'll be coming home with my beach bod.

I can't believe this is my last change. I'm so glad that I've had all this time to serve here in the mission. I'm ready to go out and work with all my heart, might, mind, and strength. Love ya mom! Thanks for everything you do! You'll always be my hero!

Con Amor Eterno,
Elder Butler

  1. Hi my name is Laura North and my son is in the Cobán Mission also. We have a Facebook page for moms of the Guatemala mission and I was wondering if you (assuming it is mom updating blog) were interested in joining. It is great to get together and talk about our kids and the highs and lows of missions. If you are interested you can add me on Facebook Laura Dinoff North or shoot me an e-mail at laura@theorths.net. Hope to hear from you! My sons blog is elderjernorth.blogspot.com
