Still getting his McDonald's YAY

Hey Everyone!!!
So this week was good, its starting to get warmer here so we really don't see our breath in the morning in the house anymore, which is actually very nice!
Our investigators are really progressing, we have 2 different families we are teaching who have baptismal date and are doing really well. They love church so that's awesome!! Both the families tell us that they are going to get baptized, but its just about when. They want more time to learn different things, which is all good cause its the Lords time! But for us i think it is important to remember we cant know everything and we never will, we aren't just going to have a huge miracle happen to conform to us that it is true, sometimes it is just that small small voice and feeling of good in our hearts! They are starting to realize that and its really awesome cause both the families have just changed and progressed so much! Its also so awesome to see how much they love going to church! all 5 with baptismal date came this sunday and it was testimony meeting and the testimonies were perfect and it was just so awesome! 
So this week it was about time to start making the trek home, we were walking and we talked to a guy in the street and he started crying and he was agreeing with everything he said and he told us he had a vision and stuff, that was awesome but he lives in Osorno so we gave the other missionaries his info. But here a lot of people say they have visions, hey its possible right? sometimes we think we cant have those miracles, but miracles are possible! Either way like i said we don't need to have some huge miracle, we just have to have faith!!
Also this week we went to less active and ate lunch and wowwwwwwwwwwww, we feasted! She hooks us up with food, it was straight up meat on top of french fires, and then we got some ice cream! I havent had ice cream for like 4 months besides the mcdonalds sometimes, but this was like american ice cream it was legit! I was so full it hurt hahaha! (no worries im still working out and huge:))
Also just everyday teaching our investigators and different people the commandments, i see how much other peoples faith are being strengthened! They give up some old addictions or habits they have been doing for their whole lives and they're happier and they are just willing to change!! It definitely strengthens my testimony about how i can do better!
We can always do better, Right? 
Also the house we leave in with the other two elders is a lot of fun and we are all good buddies, its not really like the best two years cause we are never actually really in our house cause we are bringing the gospel to the world, but when we are its fun! I love it!
The gospel is true family and friends! I have learned so much more than i could possibly learn anywhere else, I am very happy and blessed to be serving here!
I love yall!!!!!
Love Elder Wertner
