Conference in Cerro

Hey fam, how is it going! Im so glad to hear that you all like conference so much because we loved it here!! We went to the Stake Center and all the gringo missionaries watched it in English in the conference room and it was pretty darn sweet! I feel bad that just recently I have been paying so much attention to the Conferences because I learn so much! We also invited like crazy for everyone to go and we had a pretty good turnout. We had a less active woman we recently met that was baptized a year ago and went inactive shortly after and is really just looking for comfort in her life and when we invited her the only question was if she could take her daughter. She went to the Sunday morning and it was awesome to see her happy. There are miracles that happen through the conference, remember that. I also got a little homesick for Utah, but other than that it was awesome!
The talks we amazing as always! I really did like Elder Holland as well but we were all laughing a little bit because we would love if people only threw mashed potatoes at us, doesn't hurt quite as much as rocks. But it really inspired me to never let any of what happens get me down.
We also really liked the talks about missionaries working with members because that is something we are really trying to apply here. And working with members is awesome! It really makes a big difference and we have done some of our best work with members. Their testimonies are so strong it helps the people feel the spirit so strong. But seriously, the spirit is real.
We have been working with our investigator Jesus, but we have found some new challenges that we need to work past but he is such a solid guy. He knows the church is true and he wants to get baptized but he just says that he cant get baptized when he knows he will do something bad afterwards. He is taking it so seriously and it is amazing to hear him talk about Christ. I've never heard anyone say that they don't want to be baptized until they know they can 100% commit to God. It was really a humbling and cool experience. We are still working with him and he is still learning more and more about how Christ can help him.
I am also going to try to start doing what Elder Ballard said about sharing our experiences with PME. My favorite part is Attributes of Christ. I have learned so much from there about the person I want to be and how it helps us develop. Love it.
Well guys, thank you for everything you do and for your prayers. We need them and I have felt them. I hope everyone has a great week!
Todo mi amor,
Elder Degn
