Yayyy for Monday emails!!

Hey Yall!!! (trying no to forget my southern roots)
So his week was really good. I've learned the mission goes by weeks not days, events that happen are what i remember! 
Tuesday was awesome! The Lord reallyblessed  us. First the other day about a week or two ago it was late at night and time to go home and we felt the prompting to knock on a door, it was freezing and raining but we knocked on the door and a man came to the door and said he didnt have time but to come back (I have heard that one before) So we didnt think much of it........ Then on Tuesday,  we went to his house on and had a lesson with him, he said he has been looking and praying for what church was right and his brother who lives in Santiago has been a member for like a year, he actually told his brother a couple days before that if the missionaries came by his house he would let him in, and then like the next day we knocked on his door. We have another appointment with him and his wife tonight, he is really receptive. What I realized is how the lord is preparing people, its all about timing and the promptings of the spirit, if we knock on a door 99 times it can do nothing but that 100th time could be the time they really need it and have been praying for. how awesome is the Lord, he is looking out for us individually and loves us all!!! I just love it!
Jose and carmen accepted fecha for baptism and for the 17th of octoberand we were teaching them and carmen was like crying in the prayer and they are doing good and doing everthing they need to and are really receptive! so we are going to keep working with them so i hope it keeps going well! This week will be a little tougher cause its the week of the 18th..... Here thats their national independence day, its like 4th of july but a lot more eating and partying so its a little tougher to get appointments with some people! But im kinda excited cause all the food, the food here is unreal! I had my first pichanga the other night and its unreal, such different meats and potatoes, but the appointment ended at like 955 and we had to run home, i had to eat so much and so fast! Its so good yall have no idea:)
Also the youth here are way strong, the two young men in our word just have the best and strongest testimonies, it amazes me how much faith they have! Just makes me so thankful for the leaders we have back home!! This past saturday we had a noche de hogar (Family home evening) They love those here! They're so fun and there was a decent amount of people, we played a game which was super fun and everyone loved and shared a video about Christ and how He Lives, love those videos about christ, my testimony is strengthened every time i watch them! and they made little pizzas, which i havent had pizza in a while so it was sweet!! Also i finally got my package this week so thanks mom and dad! It was awesome i was so excited plus i got some no flea infested shirts which rock, hahahah! 
Well i just want all of you, Family, Friends, Anyone who is reading this, I want you to know about my testimony of Jesus Christ and this gospel! My testimony is strengthened everyday and i am just so thankful for the sacrifice and example of Jesus Christ! This gospel is true and i am 100 percent sure of that! There is nohing in my life that brings me more joy!! I love you all! Thanks for the example you constantly set for me!!!!!!
Love you!!!!
Love Elder Wertner
