Hey fam and friends!!!!

CHRISTMAS IS COMING UP!!!!!! its in like 4 or 5 days!!!!!! sweeetttt! cant wait! Great time to celebrate something very special! We should always be putting our thoughts and feelings on the savior but this gives us even more of a meaning too huh?

Way excited also cause i get to skype my familyyyyyy! I love my family, you all might know that but let me tell you, they are the best ever! Cant wait to be skyping them on friday! 6pm chile time on friday! WOHOOOO!

Hahah but this week was good, i have a new sector and a new comp and live in a new house! So i switched sectors and it would be like switching from germantown to collierville! But it is way different! This ward is real sick, 117 people showed up to church yesterday, that is so many!

They all are so nice and welcoming as well, they always leave with us and we eat lunch with the memebrs everyday and man the food is good, im trying to not get too fat! But it is awesome! My comp is Elder Rawlinson and we get along well and its weird cause he finishes end of january, so this cambio!

But this sector is very big as well, so there are forsure people out there, we just gotta find them! We are on the hunt and have gottena  coupel references which is super sick! So it will be good! I love this, ill send some pics, are house is way small, so its kinda funny. If im still here in the winter im gonna be freezing cause theres nothing to heat up the house hahaha! 

But this week i was thinking about us and this generation, my generation the generation before and just the people here in the world right now and especially during this time of year, Ive noticed that we gotta put the stuff first that really matters, that is heavenly father and nuestro families! 

People want a God who doesnt excpect much or anything at all out of them? They want a God who just says ya do whatever ya want and it will be all good. Im sorry but thats not how it is, why are we not making time for our heavnly father and remmebering all that he has done for us. How can we say we are too busy for heavnly father? Too busy to go to church for a couple hours? i remmeber when i was back at home and i would tell people my church was from 9-12, man poeple thought i was crazy. Its only 9 am and its only 3 hours? we need to make sacrifices for those things that really matter, we cant say we are too busy for heavenly father or serving tohers! We have to make time for things that really matter! We have to serve our heavenly father! Pray, read the scriptures, serve heavenly father and I promise you! Whatever you are going thru and whatever is tough right now, it will be a whole lot better if your serve others!

Friends and family I love the gospel, this is mission thing is hard, this life thing is hard too, but there is a bigger plan! Trust in the plana nd go out and do! Im gonna try and do the same! I know the church is true and i hope everyone enjoys time witht heir family this christmas! I know i am gonna enjoy that 45 min i get to skype mine! Serve others and im gonna try too! Love you all!!! Until next week!!!

Love Elder Wertner
