Week Numba 2

I cant believe its already time to email again! this week was wonderful though! i don't even know where to start. so we had been teaching an "investigator" who was actually a teacher here but we committed him to baptism on our last lesson so that was fun. then he turned into being our teacher after. hah hes a really good teacher! we are so blessed to have such great people here to teach us. i love the gospel and learning about it! its hard but its awesome! i never thought i could study for 12 hrs a day and not go insane but with the help of my comp and the holy ghost i'm doing it and surprisingly liking it a ton more than you would think! i enjoy it more and more each day! we get a 10 minute break each hour and that helps so so much!! its hard to focus at times but the spirit is quick to get you back on task! its also hard to stay awake sometimes but as i get more used to the schedule it gets easier. we watched meet the Mormons this sunday and if you havent seen it i suggest you watch  it! its pretty funny!! the mtc or (ctm) in brazil, is such a spiritual place! ive grown so much since ive been here!!! ive been a member my whole life, and grown up in the church, but i feel like im being converted. its like im converting myself. i can tell its an amazing transformation already!! im still chey though:)   we are teaching another guy who is catolic and his son is baptized in the lds church and his wife goes to church with the son but the dad doesn't want to change because of his parents and that family. (all just a role play) but its crazy to see how people react when they find out they can be with their familias forever and ever! im kinda shy when i dont know people and its hard for me to talk to them, and the lord is really strengthening that weakness of mine. anyways its hard for me to start talking because i have only been studying for like 2 weeks and here i am trying to teach people about the gospel in a language i dont know but everytime i have enough courage to open my mouth and talk, the spirit is strong and helps me to know what to say even when i dont know what im saying! hes always there to help you just have to give him the opportunity to help you. if i just sit with my mouth shut and am scared he isnt going to help me  but when i have faith and speak he lets me know what to say. i have a testimony of this church and i know that if you are having a hard time with something we can always ask heavenly father and he will be there and give you the best advice anyone can ever give and he will help you through whatever you need help with if you are willing to let him help you! if you pray he'll answer your prayers! just be ready to receive them! i love you all so much and i cant wait to hear from you!! have a wonderful week! love always sister anderson
