I love you guys! All of you, i really do and heavenly father does as well!



Whats up Yall!!!!

So i dont know where to start, The MTC is a lot of the same stuff, it is a lot of repetition. But Today was another good week it went by fast though i am not going to lie!

So Sundays are so awesome here the spirit is so strong and this Sunday we got to watch the movie the restoration! It was so awesome seeing those pioneers, talk about people who had faith am I right? Everything they went through, not just joesph smith but everyone of those pioneers who died for what they believe and left everything behind it was just crazy!

It is so funny here because every wednesday we get a new group of like 50 elders and sisters! Its really cool and they all seem so young, I feel so much older since i have been here for 3 weeks, hahahha not really but its so cool seeing everyone come! 

It rains a ton here it feels super super good! I love the rain and i know i have to start liking it even more since i am about to go to chilE and it only rains there. We had a guy from OSORNO in our dorm and he would talk to us everynight about Osorno! He told us it is freezing and rains a ton but there are a lot of penguins! Also this week he told showed us a 20,000 peso bill, which is worth just about 40 dollars in the US, which is just kinda unreal! Its funny how here we get the news about things that happen so much later hahaha like US and soccer and all of this stuff! Tuesday we had a great devotional from a member of the seventy and before that it was pizza night, i hypw pizza night up! It reminds me of the last night before i left how mom hooked the fam up with a veggie pizza and we lit some fireworks, hahahaha so fun! thanks for keeping me healthy! 

Oh and they made a new comedor so we can go in, thats like a new dinning hall and its really nice! Food is the same but pretty good and the Milk is super good and cold! wow nothing is better than cold milk. Oh yeah, we also were talking to the elder from chile and he said yeah you eat like a 3 course meal for lunch but then for dinner and breakfast you eat cereal, and they dont refrigerate your milk, but you can always find the good in all of that stuff, like the frosted flakes still taste the same with warm milk, you just have to look for the positive!

We get taught spanish and how to teach people for 4 hours in the morning and then we have lunch and we got to this online Spanish thing called TALL, hahahaha we love making jokes about tall cause the thing like sings to us its kinda weird lol, and then we have study time and gym time. Then we eat dinner and have another 4 hours of learning Spanish and how to teach and then we get back to our dorm by 930-945. and we have to be in bed by 1030 and wake up by 630! thats what the schedules like! Oh yesterday we had TRC again and it was awesome, thats what i was talking about how members or non members or less active people come and we teach them. It is so awesome and the spirit is there! Oh also friday we always have like a "45 min service project" and they keep this place really really clean and a lot of people work here so this past week they had us take brooms and sweep the walls, hahahahha it was very funny! I wish you could all see it! 

Me and elder Thomas gave a lesson a couple days ago it was the best one yet, We were really talking in spanish and the investigator said how well we did and how he knew the spirit was blessing us. Without the spirit i would not be able to do this! I am very blessed. Spanish is going well i get better everyday, im not saying im some pro i mean i have a tough time still but it keeps getting and i know it is all of you guys prayers! so please keep praying for me! I am constanly praying for each one of you and if your thinking right now that you think i am not then you probably wrong cause i spend a lot of time on my knees praying here, it is the best way to get close to our heavenly father and it is so awesome the ways he blesses us all individually! Some of the pics i am going to send are from the roof, we got up there and took some really good pics, but shhhhh dont tell anyone!! 

Well I love you guys! All of you, i really do and heavenly father does as well! he has blessed our lives so much, we need to make sure we are constantly on our knees thanking him! 

Keep the faith Yáll

Love Elder Wertner
