Saturday though was awesome. The whole entire mission went to Montgomery to hear Elder Anderson! There was 6 total Elders in our truck lol. It was crammed. It was so fun seeing the mission. I love it so much. We first heard from Bishop Waddell the presiding Bishop of the church. My testimony of Joseph Smith and The First Vision increased a ton. I am here, and we have had all our blessings because Joseph had a vision. So powerful. Then Elder Garret Gong of the presidency of the 70 spoke. I learned to love others and see them as Heavenly Father does. He then had us all sing happy birthday to sister Porter. Elder St Clair of the 70 was there as well. And then we heard from Elder Anderson. He is so darn funny. He was cracking jokes the whole time. I really loved hearing him speak. Being at the feet of an Apostle of the Lord was humbling and an honor. Hearing His witness of The Savior was so powerful. So powerful. He is such an amazing man.
I am leaving Maysville. I am sad but happy. I'm way nervous. I've had such an amazing time here. Elder Broderick has been an amazing companion. We have both grown a lot. I will never forget this transfer. But I am always open to new opportunities.
Also, I am going to be a Zone Leader.
Love Elder Verdoni
