Hey Fam!!!
First off i cant believe this is my last week in training! This is crazy, time goes by way faster in the mission its kinda weird hahah! I am having fun tho, this is definitley who i am now! I AM A MISSIONARY WEIRD! I KNOW! This week we have been finding a lot of people and the spirit has been really guiding us! So here is a little story for yall that is in the works right now, A couple days ago we were knocking doors and knocking this street and in chile people have their houses and then they dont have backyards but there are houses behind the houses in front that are a lot smaller and kind of hiding but people live there. So we were knocking a street we knocked the front house and then were walking to the next house and in the corner of my eye i saw another house in the back and we walked past and then of course...... Bam! I kinda gotta a prompting "Elder go back" Then i was like okay well why would i not listen..... so i told elder cleverly and of course we went back there and we knocked on the door and a lady answered and told us to come back the next day around the same time. Well that always happens so we didnt think anything of it, but we of course went back and they invited us in, we found out she was baptized 18 years ago and she moved from santiago and she doesnt really remmeber the church at all, but her kids and husband arent members either. Well they are really receptive and then they wanted us to come back the next day and we taught them La restauración and her husband excepted a date to be baptized and she is so receptive and needs the gospel in her life! We found out she had cancer a while back as well as her mom passed away about a year ago. It is really awesome and they are really awesome and want to learn, plus this always set appointments for in the afternoon, which is always tougher to get appointments at so that is a plus! haha but it awesome!
We contact a lot of people in a day and lately we have been finding a lot more receptive people! We are always working hard and trying to find people, some days we have nothing but other days it seems like it is just going so well, it is the timing and its the Lords timing not ours! It is so awesome to see the fruits from our labors! 
Also on sunday they had the primary program here in our ward and there is only like 7 poeple in the primary but man does everyone show up, primary program is hype! hahahaha it makes me miss izzy! Love you izzy! 
Also it is starting to get warmer here, yeah that is good in the mornings but it is already really hot, we walk so much and there is no such thing as AC, SO IT IS HOT during the day! cant wait for summer hahahah! but everything is good! I feel really blessed and am really happy to be where i am! Thank you all for your support and all you do for me! This gospel is true and i know it with all my heart!
Lots os Love (as jessica would say)
Love Elder Wertner
also we visited the lobo marino again and we got closer so i have some better pics for yall!
Love you bunches:)
