Hey folks, how goes it? I'm glad that you all had a good week and that everything is still going well back home. At times it is hard to think that the world is still turning back in the states, but it sounds like everything is going pretty darn good. Just let me know if Mateo has started shaving yet.

This has been an aweome p-day! Our ZL is going home this change so he wanted to go play football at the beach. Yeah, American Football!!! It was crazy fun! We played some football, then fĂștbol, then Davis and I played some baseball with one of the elders that has baseball gloves. It was fantastic.

This week was fantastic!! The highlight was definitely the baptism of Jesus!!! He is seriously such a stud! When he showed up for the baptism he was dressed super nice and he just gave me a huge smile and a hug and I was just in shock. He was a completely new person, before we even baptized him. We got him all changed, and his service was combined with a little girl in the ward that was getting baptized too. He had to do the ordinance twice because his hand came out, but after the second one he looked at Davis and said ´soy bautizado?´ and Davis just smiled and nodded and then Jesus turned around to the crowd and threw up his arms with just a humongous smile. It was really one of the best days of my mission. It was amazing!! He also invited his friends and a he is giving us all of them as references!!

We also had our interviews with Pte, Smith and it was super good. He just asked me how long I have been here, and I said eight months, and we were both just like, ´fa, como tiempo pasa.´ It´s true, time is flying down here. This change has just flown right by. It was great to talk with him again and I really just feel the spirit every time we get to talk together. It was really just great to talk with him one on one for a little bit and get that re-charge he always gives us.

Well kiddos I'm super pumped to talk to you guys soon, this week is changes, so we´ll see what happens. I really dont want to leave my man Davis, but we´ll see what the Lord has got planned for us. Let me know what time works best for you guys to get the call. I could basically go at anytime.

I love you all soo much and I cant wait to see you guys soon!! Keep it up! Thanks for everything!!

Todo mi amor,

Elder Degn
