So, transfers are on Wednesday, and I'm leaving Chevy Chase! It's super sad, but I'm so grateful that I've been able to serve there for the past 9 months. It's been the greatest experience and I love this area SO MUCH! Change is good though, and I'm excited for the upcoming transfer. I'll be leaving the Visitors Center, they're sending me "outbound" (I'm going to a non-VC area for 2 transfers). It's weird but it'll be a good experience!
This past week has been awesome though, Nian got baptized on Tuesday night! We got there to fill up the font around 4. Pulling in, we realized that the church parking lot hadn't been plowed yet, it was still buried in 3 feet of snow, which was an issue. Trying to have a baptism here. The zone leaders had taken all the snow shovels from the church, so we called and asked if they could bring them back. Turns out they had a huge group of missionaries and shovels, and offered to come help us shovel! Long story short we ended up shoveling like 3,000 lbs of snow and the baptism was AWESOME. We took Nian out to lunch at Cheesecake Factory for lunch on Wednesday, and then had a big goodbye party for him yesterday after church. He's on his way back to China right now, but will be back for school in the fall! I don't have a lot of time to write today, but life is good and this week was awesome! I'm really looking forward to the new transfer and I've been super blessed.

This may not seem like a big deal to y'all, but we got a new microwave in the VC. #HALLELUJAH
