April 7, 2014

Hello all! Wasn´t conference awesome? I loved it!
I´m happy to hear that you were all able to make it for Grandma Beth´s funeral. Wish I could have been there to see everyone together. Please send my love to all.
Well, we have things to be grateful for. We were able to have investigators in conference which was awesome and we are so happy for that. Jose is also going to be baptized this Saturday! He truly has been a golden investigator and we have enjoyed working with him, even though really I don´t think we did anything. Everything just clicked with him. We called him on Saturday night to remind him about conference but he couldn´t answer his phone because he was in Priesthood session. He had even asked permission to get Saturday off so he could attend, but wasn´t able to. It´s always amazing to me how prepared some people are. The kid wants to serve a mission and is attending mission prep for the Stake. What a gem. He passed his baptismal interview with flying colors and as we had passed over the questions to help him get ready I loved listening to his testimony. He feels it. 

In regards to conference. As always it was fun to hear them talk about family and the importance of our strengthening our homes and relationships. I was definitely struck by how we were taught to be careful in our words with all, especially those we love. Sometimes I think we get so comfortable that we forget that maybe it´s them that we should have more caution in how we speak. 
I also loved Elder Uchtdorf´s talk -- he talked about living a life of gratitude, right? I forgot my notes...oops. But I'm sure it was him who talked about it. Today as we were driving to use internet I see a guy with a shirt that said, ¨what did I do to deserve God¨. So often we say what did I do to deserve this? but really we have been blessed with so much and we have to remember the Lord and our blessing through everything.
I am so grateful to be here serving the people of Peru. Many times we pass through things that we don´t understand, but we have to have faith that it is all for our benefit and learning and that it will help us in the long run. I know that our Heavenly Father has a plan for each and every one of us and I am so grateful to know that HE will NEVER abandon us and many times although we might feel forgotten, it is actually him that is carrying us through it all.  I love you all so much! Please take care of one another -- we´re family after all.

Love Hermana Butterfield
