Family, This has been a good week. We are working hard and have lots of great stuff on the horizon. We currently have 4 people with a baptismal date and they are doing great. We have a couple set for April and end of this month so we are excited to work with them and see the spirit work with them. It is starting to warm up pretty fast here and I don't like it. I've gotten so used to the cold here that I prefer it than the 60-70 degrees we have been having. Not a lot of time but we are doing great and loving my mission. Thanks for everything. Love, Elder Roe

Family, I was transferred this week. It was really sad to leave Marshall. I spent a little more than half my mission there but it has been a great experience and I love the people there. I am now back in Kansas. Leavenworth, Kansas. Big military area with Ft. Leavenworth and big, historical correctional facilities and jails. Interesting historical city to be in. So far it has been a nice place. The ward is nice. There is not a lot of spanish at all here so it is really different and strange to be here. I felt really strange and lost not blessing the sacrament, translating all sacrament meeting, having classes in spanish, etc. So strange but makes me appreciate spanish more. I hope I can keep up the language!! This area is nice and doing really good. There is lots of potential and baptisms coming up soon. It is great to be apart of it all. Thanks for everything! Love Elder Roe

Family, We had another snow storm roll in this past week. Another foot or so of snow. We have lots of snow around. They closed down school for a week. Because of the snow we had a slower week. Not as many opportunities to visit people. We shoveled lots of snow and pushed cars that were stuck. Including ours lol. I am not used to driving in the snow but it works. Kinda like driving in the mud or heavy rain storm. So we helped lots of people this week. Nice to visit with people and members helping them out in the weather. We are good now and out teaching. We finally found this family that we have been looking for since they moved. They didn't know how to contact us but we finally got to see them. It was great to see them again. I helped teach and baptize part of the family when I was first here. Then they split up and moved to a different place. So it was great to see them again and he was excited to see me too, back in Marshall. We have transfers this week and I think that I am leaving but not sure yet. Time is flying but it is really fun along the way. Hope all is well. Thanks for everything. Love, Elder Roe
