So I am way excited to hear Elder Bednar talk Friday! I have been preparing, reading a couples of talks he wrote and I'm getting a haircut today to not look like such a bum! haha This week has been so great! We had a very good baptism this week, and we had another, but we found out he was having relationships, wink, wink ,with his cousin who is a member! Talk about drama! The road of happiness is going amazing, haha, they are going to have to build a church just for the road! This gospel has changed my life! haha, we ran into more Jehovah Witness missionaries yesterday, addresses were taken and we will visit them! haha I love the mission!

Yo yo yo! Sooo let's talk about life! Life is going well here in Brazil! I have little time to write today because I am going to the center of Belo Horizonte today! Lets see! It is raining a ton here and is so hot too because it is so humid! We had a baptism that was really cool this last week, everyone was ready, we were singing the hymn right before the baptism, and the lights went out and was a black out in the whole city because it was raining so hard!! But did that stop us! NO! of course not, we did the baptism by the little lights on the telephones! haha it was really cool! Not many people can say they have been baptized in the darkness with only cellphone lights, lighting the way! Oh and also this week we have interviews, with president, wow he is such and amazing man and so animated and so funny, and super smart! We always leave him pumped and ready to work are butts off! So that was my week! I am sorry I have like no time this week, but I love you all so much! Have a great week! I will send more letters out to the people I am neglecting, if you feel this way let me know! I love you all! peace out, Elder Bednar comes on the 29th of october, I'm so excited! ahhh
love

Alright, lets talk about this week in Brazil, for some reason this week passed way slow, it seems like forever that I have emailed! Well lets talk about some things that have happened this week!

One day at lunch when we were eating there was this little girl that is 5 years old with us and she ate her whole plate of food, she was so proud that she ate it all but when she wasn't looking I put a spoonful of my rice on her plate, and then I was like ´´are you not going to eat all your food´´ haha, it was so funny she thought for sure she ate it all, but she ate the rice and then like one minute later she started to cry hahaha and we were like whats wrong, and she said her mouth was burning, I forgot that I had hot pepper juice on my rice hahaha. She was crying and I felt so bad but we made her feel better by giving her chocolate!

So we have some elders that are our neighbors and they recieved bicho de pé, or in English animal of the foot, ha it's this little animal that gets in the foot and starts eating the tissue, then it starts to lay eggs and they grow and grow and eat more foot, haha they are in the hospital right now getting them taken out, haha I hope I never get this, nasty, that is one thing that is so disgusting, gross things happening with the feet!

This week has been fun with a lot of laughs! I am excited for another exciting week! I hope everyone is reading their scriptures and saying their prayers, because if you're not I know Heavenly Father is not happy! do this and stay happy and know I love you all! have a great week! até mais!

Hey what's up fam! This is the letter I wrote for Chad so if you guys can help him figure out what it says that would be nice of you! Alright it has been another week here in Venza in the beautiful country of Brazil, I am going to be staying here for this next transfer and I am so excited because we haven't baptized all of the "road of happiness" yet but, we will make it this transfer! So this week has been very funny! It has been raining a lot and you know what that means, me falling, covered in mud and laughing tons! I wish you could have been there! We were laughing so hard! Oh and another funny thing, on the mission you meet the most interesting people haha, we were teaching a lesson yesterday and there was this old lady who was very sweet and she had a husband that was losing his mind, and during the lesson total he was calling her saying lourdes lourdes lourdes, and then he would throw in DIABO haha which means devil haha it was so funny he would call here name and then call her devil, haha we were trying so hard not to laugh but it was a failed effort, during the prayer he was doing it and it was so stinkin funny! The people here are hilarious, she was laughing too, she says that he just sits there all day and says horrible things haha it made me think of Grandpa Hanks!

So general confrence was so amazing, even though I had to watch it in Portugese and didn't get to hear their voices, I learned so much and we have been using a lot of what they said in their teaching, I watched priesthood confrence this week too! But, after conference we had a baptism, this lady is like 60 years old and so so funny, we found her knocking on doors! She wanted me to baptize her so I walked her through on how it would happen, and I told her to plug her nose, so we entered the water and after her taking a ton of time because the water was really cold, we were ready, I said the prayer and she went under, when she came up she started to cough tons, haha she took in a good amount of water, she forgot to close her mouth haha I have never seen something like this haha it was good, she had a good baptism and she is super firm, telling her friends about the church that she has found the only true church in the world, she is so amazing!

But yeah this has been my week, I hope this letter is a little better to make up for last week! I love this gospel so much and I know we have a living prophet here on this earth! I love him so much! God loves us all!
Have a great week and smile a lot!
love
Elder Anderson
