Family, It has been a crazy week. Good beginning then we heard news of a big snow storm on Thursday. I woke up at 6:30 and it was fine and clear out then by 9am it was pounded. Came really fast and took everyone by suprise. We went out in the blizzard like storm to help some cars stuck around 1pm then got a ride with a cop to a members house where we stayed all day stranded. We weren't able to drive for 2 days. The roads were horrible and not cleared til 2 days after the storm. Bad but kinda fun to be in. Friday we spent time shoveling driveways and stuff. Then Saturday morning, we had interviews with the mission president. We found out that our mission will be split. We are the largest mission in the world (regarding number of missionaries) from what I understand and the split will happen when I go home. So I won't be affected by the mission change, but cool to see that missionaries will have their mission changed and that our mission is doing really good and needs to be split into two. It will be the Missouri Independence Mission and Kansas Wichita Mission. Crazy bc I served some time in Wichita so cool that they will get their own mission now. We don't know boundaries yet but President Keyes will be talking with the prophet and mission department next week or 2 and find out the boundaries. We guess that Wichita Mission will be the whole state of Kansas. Crazy news. Then we found out that we get another snow storm tonight, just as bad as what we had last week. Probably another foot of snow or so. So, we are trying hard to stay warm and bundle down for the next couple days. Thanks for everything. Love Elder Roe
