Hey Fam and friends,
 whats up Yall!?
I got something Cool to tell yall! Remember how I told you a bunch about Juan, How Elder Cleverly and I found him one night and we taught him a bunch. 
So one night in the beginning of my trainning we were knocking doors and I remember it was freeeeezzzzziiiinnnnnggggg cold and it was pouring rain so much! We had been knocking doors for the whole day from like 12 to 930 and we were like okay one more door, so i was like yeah thats knock this door over here and we knocked it and a guy answered and he said he wanted to hear and come back tomorrow. We came back and he told us how he was talking to his brother in Santiago and said next time the missionaries come by he would open the door and listen to what they heard and that was the next day, So long story short i taught him with cleverly for like 5 weeks and then with Winward for like 6 weeks, the last day i was at his house we got him to agree to a date where he would give up everything he needed to and get baptized. Yeah well Juan got baptized this past Saturday!!!!! So stoked i am so happy, it is such a blessing, i really wish I could've been there at the baptism, but to here he kept his fecha and kept through and was baptized is awesome! So thankful for that and that he is a member now, so so so awesome. It was so awesome to see that God can make you an instrument in his hands for the salvation of others! Its funny cause that day where i remember it was freezing cold i'm sure we didn't get any to any houses and maybe got rejected 100 times, who even knows, I don't remember! What I do remember is the one who accepted and was baptized and everything in between! Way stoked!
Here in Osorno we found out cambios and Elder Diaz and i are in the office and we are going to a different sector near by so that will be fun and exciting. Going to find some people and bring the world his truth, that's what were are here to do!
Also other day i was looking out of our balcony (yah our house is sweet we have a balcony and carpet) and i noticed a volcano hahahaha didn't even realize it was there so that's pretty cool!
Well i love you all and hope you're all doing well! This week we get to do a lot with helping the new people from the MTC come into the mission and pick them up and be with them for like the first two days, way stoked for that! Also feels like just yesterday i was the new greenie, now look at me, i got 7 months on the mission...... Weird!
Love yall!!!
Elder Wertner:)
