April 13

Hey Everyone!! Well it has finally come, I am being Transferred from Nkronsa to Bibiani. I'll talk about it!

I guess its the biggest thing I should talk about, so yes Bibiani. It is about 1 and half to 2 hours from Kumasi by tro-tro. A bit more village-y than where I am now, so I'm super excited. I will be with Elder Williamson, he is also Nigerian, I will be the only white Elder there, :)
I leave Wednesday morning so I have been cleaning and preparing to pack, it'll be fun.

This week was good though, we had no power and no water a few times this week and a thought struck me; how weird it will be to always have light and running water, haha because like I get uneasy when we have power for more than 2 days haha. Bibiani, I heard, always has power so we will see.

My last Sunday in Nkoransa was great, I loved it. I was able to bear my testimony and say goodbye to them all. I love these people. They're family, they really feel that way and it's amazing, just a bit sad that I am leaving.
Well really that was my week, I should have a bit more to share next week, but till then, stay Golden!
Love you guys!
Elder Verdoni

Pics. This week we were serious.. haha okay well we wanted to look serious
we made that meal ourselves, Rice ball with groundnut soup

Letter to Brandon (I'm giving a talk this Sunday on praying with real intent. Anything to say or your personal experiences?)
Sure man. All I can add is I have slowed down in my prayers. I talk to my heavenly Father. I tell him everything. how I feel, how my day went, I even tell him the boring parts, because he cares. And I plead for help to help others. I'm here to serve and I ask him to help me. I love praying because when I do I know he stops, and he listens to me. And after I pray I know he is working for me to help me. I love it. I truly feel like a child of God. And if I have questions, I do everything in my power to find the answer. I study, I search, and then I ask. Like Christ told Oliver Cowdery "you must study it out in your mind; then you must ask me if it be right and if it be right I will cause that your bosom shall burn withihn you: therefore you shall feel it is right." (D&C 9:7-8) 
Love you bro

Letter to Mom
Hey mom! I always love your emails.
I cant wait for Brandon to get his call, so crazy (His brother's mission papers are in and waiting on the interview)
But wow mom your week sure does sound full, I love knowing about it.
Thank you so much for the package and ring, I will love the Jerky, and I am so excited for the instruments:) (I sent him some dental cleaning instruments)
I am super excited to go to Bibiani, most people there wont speak English, it will be fun, and I should learn more Twi and pigeon English (from the Nigerians) .
Love you Mom!
