Go ye therefore, and teach all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost: Teaching them to observe all things whatsoever I have commanded you: and, lo, I am with you alway, even unto the end of the world. Amen. Matthew 28:19-20

          Well this past week has been fine.  Friday and Saturday was transfer news and I was hoping for a call from Pres. all day. Meanwhile just about all the other District Leaders got released who only served 2 transfers. So I am going to be staying as DL and in Buokrom, going on four transfers!! So I guess that he is really trying to kill me!! haha..   I’m tired of taking numbers everyday, then having to report them to Pres… I was really hoping to get released from being DL and going back to being someone that takes orders and commands, but I guess it’s not that bad. I didn’t want to leave Buokrom anyway so it’s OK, I guess???  But I’ll surely be transferred this next transfer from Buokrom to who knows where.  All that matters is that it’s something new and different to change to, but other than that everything is cool.
          We were able to baptize M yesterday, it went well. He is a very powerful man! He’s always asking inspiring questions.  He mentioned that his mom has seen a change in him since we have started meeting with him. The other inv. are doing fine. M has a few friends that want us to meet with them.
          Today and yesterday we have been all over Kumasi going to fm's cuz Elder Anouman is going home tomorrow.  He has been taking us all over Kumasi to his old areas and enjoying at fm's. He is from Cote d’Ivoire (Ivory Coast) and is a very powerful missionary who knows how to have fun and enjoy. He was the past AP and my Zone Leader in Asuoyeboah.  It rained pretty much the whole time we were at the fm waiting for them to prepare the fufu.  There was 13 of us. We had a good time. We have very strong friendship.  We just recently came back to Boukrom from Piri Piri and I said my last goodbyes to Anouman.  I about started to tear up a little.  Within the next few transfers it seems like about all my mission friends are going home.  But I guess that’s how the ball rolls.   Soon I’ll also be on my way to the mission home. Haha…
          So everything else is fine.  There hasn’t been anything too crazy or out of the ordinary happen this past week, Tomorrow is April and it will be a happy day for me for sure. HAHA…  That is good that Belle got a job and has something to give her a little money. So I better go.   Take care.  Thanks for everything!!
                  Love,  Elder Ty Blackburn
