Hey whats up Fam and friends,
It was a good week this week, Always a good week when youre serving the lord and doing his work! Cant take it for granted cause it is such a beautiful work, I can really see the lord using me as an instrument to help change lives and nothing is better than seeing people change for the better, It makes me feel so good and have such a purpose! 
Also this week i had cow and sheep stomach, I feel like thats the stuff they eat in the south but its the first time i had it and its actually way good, its super chewing and you can straight up see how its stomach and they made a soup out of it, pretty good soup not gonna lie! Also funny cause saturday night at like 10 we got a call from bishop asking us to both give talks tomorrow, funny cause on the mish its just like youre ready for that type of stuff, always! So its sweet to feel ready when that stuff happens, the talk went really well and our ward is awesome! They really love the missionaries!
This week i saw a lot of how real and powerful the priesthood really is! The Lord trusts us his servants with such a strong and powerful power, it is truly amazing to use that to bless and heal others! I got to give a blessing to someone who really needed help and guidance and it is amazing to be a part of that, nothing i get more joy out of than that, the spirit is so strong and so powerful, because it is literally him speaking through us! My spanish gets way good and i speak so clear and fluently when i give blessings, its because it really is the lord speaking through us, we are his hands to do this wonderful work and if we are doing what we are suppose to he is going to bless his children who dont know about the gospel or need help! The power of God is real, the spirit really does testify! Also a lot we did this week is a lot of people want blessings for houses to have that peace when maybe sometimes their isnt that feeling of the spirit in the house and there is some bad spirits or something like that lets say! What i learned is how real the spirit of contention is, you cannot have the spirit or even feel that love of christ in your life if we are so angry and have so much contention and fighting, it just doesnt work that way!  But I really learned this week how we are legit at war right now, it is a battle between good and evil and a battle between satan and Heavenly father and christ! The awesome thing about this is and if you dont know then i am very happy to be the one to tell you, we know the outcome! Heavenly father has won, we know who is going to win already, so why dont we pick the winning teams side! 
I invite you all to try and search for that feeling of peach and if you have have that contention or dont feel good or something right i invite you to pray and read the scriptures, you will feel a lot better and wont have that bad feeling anymore! 
I love chile, the chilean people are awesome, i grow to love them more and more each day, even if they slam he door in our faces or yell or whatever and they dont wanna hear the good word, theyre still sons and daughters of God and they deserve this gospel just as much as i do! This gospel changes lives, ive seen it and nothing is better than that, Nothing feels better when you enter a home of a stranger who has been having a tough time and she begins to tell you how God has sent her two angels to help her out! I love you guys! Thanks for always supporting me!!!
Much Love, 
Elder Wertner
