Last full week in the MTC

**Justin leaves the MTC this Monday and heads for CHILE!
You can send him a last minute package or letter today or tomorrow and he will get it before he leaves using 
Just click on the upper right link that says Mexico MTC and all you need is his name :)
We've been able to send a couple packages and he's received them all!

Well first off let me just say how much i love my family, I have been truly blessed with a wonderful family and I am just so grateful for them! Me and my sister brookie have always been best friends whether it was playing bball 1 on 1 since i can remember or her being my best and really only friend and taking good care of me when we moved to tennessee and i did not have really any friends! She really is my best friend............ AND NOW SHE IS ENGAGED!!!!!! S/O TO BROOKE AND MICHAEL! I am so excited for you both! I wish i could be there but i know yall are going to have the best time ever and i am just so happy!!!!
Okay so pretty much same old same old here but this will be last time i write you guys from Mexico, because monday at 1030pm i leave for chile!!! its about an 8 1/2 hour flight to santiago and then we have about like a 6 hour layover and then we fly to OPsorno which is about 1 1/2 hours away. So during the layover i dont know if i will be able to call or not but i will try!!! so if i do call it will be like 8 or 9 am chile time, but if i cant dont be sad mommy and dad!!!! but i will try my best so just be ready tuesday morning! I am pretty sure it is 2 hours ahead of yall so probably like 7 amyour time, i will try! not forsure tho! 
This week we watched a live devotional from Russell M. Neilson whos new president of the quorom of the 12! it was very good its so awesome to hear apostles speak!!! I love it! There is a really good quote i heard in one of our devotionals and i have heard it a couple times before..... "You dont recieve your answer for your prayers until after the trial of your faith" I love this quote it is so true, sometimes in life i feel like we just want want want and we think when we pray we should just get the answer right away! But thats not how it works, we are on this earth to be tested, and through prayer heavenly Father helps us but we are here to be tested, he gives us trials that he knows we can overcome and that are necessary for not just yourself but others! We have to remmeber it is isnt about us sometimes but it is about serving others and then after that our testimony will grow and i know that we will become better people in when we are serving others!
Tuesday was our last pizza night and thats sad, hahahahaha but i ate 8 slices so i ended on a good note! We had TRC again and that went really well, everytime we do TRC it just makes me even more excited for being out in chile and everyday i get the opportunity to teach people about something i love so so so much!!! And they have no idea about it! 
Well i have had so much fun here and i have made some good friends and there are some awesome people, The MTC has been good and i feel like i have learned a lot but i still have a lot to learn!!! i am so unbelieveably stoked to be serving the people of chile!!! Next time yall talk to me i will be on a different continent! How crazy is that? I just cant wait!! I love my district and it is kinda sad that elder Asay, Elder Rollins, Hermana barney and Arave are all going to the states so i wont really get to talk to them for like 2 years but i wish they were going to Chile! But its all good, I have been truly blessed and i am thankful for my time here! I love you all and pray for you all everyday!
Yo se que la iglesia es verdad y yo se que mediante jesucristo y la expiacion my familia puede por eturnidad! yo estoy muy agradecido por la oppurnidad servir un mision! yo amor ustedes!!!!
Love you all! keep the faith and never give up!!!!
Love Elder Wertner
