I recently received two separate correspondences from him. The first was an email sent to his parents, and they kindly forwarded to family. What a great way to keep us all in the loop. That very same day we received a hand written letter in the mail. The kids like that one even more. Elder Wertner asks about them specifically and shares some fun thoughts with them. What a blessing to have a cousin influencing them in such a good way. This is only the second missionary in our family so it is still so fun and exciting for all of us.
Well in the email he asks for prayers, because they are having trouble getting visas to Mexico. He not only asks for prayers for himself, but for his whole district. So please do that for him and his companions if you are inclined.
He shared "his favorite" scripture with us. I think he is studying his scriptures so much these days that his favorites changes from time to time as the spirit influences him, because each letter had a different favorite in it!
I know that which the Lord hath commanded me, and I glory in it. I do not glory of myself, but I glory in that which the Lord hath commanded me; yea, and this is my glory, that perhaps I may be an instrument in the hands of God t bring some soul to repentance; and this is my joy.
I think Elder Wertner has caught the spirit. He is anxious to share the gospel of Jesus Christ with the world.
