“Your son is about to leave the mission and (will) join you in a happy reunion,” wrote Butuan Philippines Mission President Mernard P. Donato to us as Elder Camporazo’s parents.
“You can be proud of the service he has rendered as a missionary,” concluded President Donato's letter sent to us through a postpaid mail.
In October 24, 2008 Philippines Bacolod Mission President Dany Daquioag set apart Elder Camporazo to serve at Philippines Butuan Mission for 2 years. After undergoing training at Missionary Training Center (MTC) in Manila, Elder Camporazo proceeded to Butuan City Mission. There he has served in the Stake and Districts of Mati, Places, Butuan, Surigao and Monkayo respectively. He has also served in the wards and branches of Banay-Banay, Bacuag, Butuan 3rd , Butuan 2nd, Washington and Nabunturan.
Aside from missionary work, he has also served in a various leadership position like a membership recorder and later as a financial secretary in the mission office.
Pride of the Mission
Former Butuan Mission President Charlie G. Revillo and his wife, Sister Pierne counted him to be a strength and example to those whom he has labored. They were grateful and confident in assigning him as District Leader of the Butuan District.
President Revillo and us, Elder Camporazo’s family did our best to make him a great missionary of the Lord by uniting in helping him become a committed and dedicated missionary of the Lord through letters and emails and with our prayers to support him spiritually.
Best of 2 Years
The 2 years spent by Elder Camporazo in the field as a missionary of the Lord were considered as the best years in his life. He has not failed the expectation of President Arlen G. Malacaman of La Carlota District before he left for a mission as“… a blessings to the lives of many people.” Elder Camporazo finishing his full-time missionary work came home with honor. His attitude determines an attitude that Philippines Butuan Mission is a mission of excellence and Aloha!

These plans may include the following: to work at the call center as a call agent, software or finance man, to avail of the Perpetual Education Fund ((PEF) for his continuing education, to have a laptop or notebook for his work or schooling, to procure his pertinent papers from the school and NSO, and a cell phone.
