Bowling Champ!!!

Hey guys whats up!? Happy almost Mothers day!!! Alright jk but I am also really excited to talk to you guys too this sunday! Today we headed out again to the centro with Elder Toledo because it is his last Pday so we went around as he wanted, buying goodies and playing bowling! Im sooo excited to go and play bowling again! I had to break a little of the rust off in the beginning but I ended up coming out on top! Gonzalez surprized me by playing very well and it was really close but I came through in the clutch in the last frame. It is so weird being with Toledo in his last week, he was suposed to end last change but he extended so he ends right now. His family is coming to get him from Chile, and we are going to be having a little bit of a ward hoedown with them all on Thursday, then he leaves to go visit his other areas with his family. Im really excited to get to meet them, and then say by...haha but it will be awesome for them, everyone loves Toledo. 

This week was SOOOO awesome!!!! We are working with a a couple of really awesome families that are progressing super good, but this week we had some aweosome charlas!! Our number one investigator is Juan who I told you about last week I think, he came to all the activies last week and we visited them this week and he absolutely blew our minds. We drilled them pretty good to read the book of mormon and he said that he started, read a couple pages, felt dumb for reading a book, set it down, and then he said it happened. He said that he had the craziest feeling that he could not describe that entered in his body and told him to keep reading. He read half of first nephi that night and when we got there he explained so well the first thirteen chapters to us and we were both sitting there with our jaws hanging open...the spirit is the best teacher there is!! We invited him to be baptized and he answered ´¨ What do I need to do?" He was ready to do anything and everything! He came to church again and is helping out his mom a ton as well! I am soo excited for him!! He is such a boss! 
We also got back into contact with our other investigator Graciela that we lost contact of the other week and had a really good charla as well. She was getting all ready to be baptized before we lost her, and so we talked and she is all set, she is going to get baptized this thursday by Elder Toledo, the missionary that found her a year ago when he was in this ward for the first time. Awesome right? They are both pretty excited! Us too, she understands the gospel and commandments so well for someone that is getting to know the church. Her life is really tough, but she does a really big effort to be obedient to all of the commandments and to read the book of mormon, which she has almost finished. Above everything she is a big example to me for the effort she makes to do what she does. Thursday is going to be a awesome day!
There are a lot of people that we are working with to help them progress and that in this moment have a lot of potential and we are so excited to see where this next week takes them!! I love where I am and I love what I do! I know the Book of Mormon is the WORD OF GOD and that it was written for our day. IT IS THE KEY!!! 
I love you all so much and am so grateful for all that you do for me!! 

Love you guys! See you on Sunday!!!
Elder Degn
