Baptisms, Transfers & SNOW ...

Hi everyone!

It was a pretty crazy week here in Oregon! There was a crazy snow storm and we got about a foot of snow!! Oregon is definitely not set-up to have snow storms so a lot of places shut down and no one was driving. We were locked down in our apartment for a couple days and then after three days President said we could drive if we felt the roads were good enough. After being stuck in the apartment we were ready to get out, so we took our little Corolla out and that was a mistake. When we were driving we hit a patch of ice and we were coming up behind a car and we just kept sliding on the ice and ran into the back of a Jeep. So that was a bummer. 
But on the bright side Tuesday Buffinger, our investigator, got baptized!! We had her baptism on Saturday and it was awesome! There were over 60 people at her baptism. The place was packed and it was so awesome to see so many people come support her. It was probably the best baptism I have been to on my mission! Tuesday is such an awesome person and I am so grateful to have been a part of her conversion. She has been such a great example of commitment of following the Savior.
Oh and transfers are today! Elder Miller is getting transferred to Milwaukie and I am getting Elder Merrell. He is from Pleasant Grove Utah and he is a pretty cool guy. He has been out 15 months and it's his first transfer being a Zone Leader.

Elder Hintz is going home too ...

I'll keep it short today because we have lots of stuff to do, but I am so grateful to be a missionary. Being a part of someone's conversion story, like Tuesday, is such an incredible blessing and I can honestly say that there is nothing that has brought me more joy than helping others come closer to Christ. 

Love and miss you all!
