Good Times at the MTC!

It's been a great few days. I have to say though, I do not like the MTC. It is like a spiritual Jail. It's great because you learn so much, but you never get to go outside. Oh well... I'm only here for a few more days thankfully.
So let me tell you about my fun few days.. Yesterday during sports we played basketball. I went up and threw it down with two hands and all the brown people went crazy calling me Michael Jordan. :) All the other brown people were playing volleyball but I didn't want to play because I didn't want to play "mess around ball." but then I watched them. They were freaking good. So after their game, Elder Taufa asked if I wanted to try to hit. So he set me and I freaking cranked it. So I've been officially recruited to the Tongan team. It was pretty funny what they were saying. "Elda Butla, You jump so high... You play with our team tomorrow ya?" So that was definitely the highlight of my week so far.
One of my favorite things to do is listen to Elder Fine talk about the Samoans. He's a big Tongan fella, and they HATE the Samoans. So when we play volleyball, it's not the usual "missionary volleyball." It's like war. "Elda Butla, you jump and hit the Samoan in da face ya?"
I'm so excited, me and my buddy Elder Gutke, (one of the few elders from the states) just got done talking to Elder Enoka from Samoa. He said he was going to give us a Tupeno or Tupenu, however you spell it, at lunch. That's what they call the skirt thing. So i'll be the freshest white person in Hamilton pretty soon;)
So everyone said that McKay Butler was going to get fat on his mission? Garbage!! ;) I have the perfect lifting routine in the mornings. I use my 50lb suitcases as my weights. So watch out everyone because I'm coming home Jacked!!
K...My companions are dang weird though... I have a philipino companion and in their country they don't use toilet paper. So when he got out of the bathroom, he said "Elder Butler, can you show me how to wipe my butt?" hahaha I almost died! But then i realized that he was being serious, so i showed him the correct form:)
Well everyone... I love you all, and think about you every day! Thank you for all the aweome letters!!
Ofa Atu,
Elder Butler
Ps. i can't send pictures yet because the MTC camera rules are ridiculous. But i did take a few pics at the temple and they will be sent soon!
