On my first night in my first area, there were a series of tornados that swept through the area and did quite a bit of damage. We drove through the town of Barneveld, Wis., the following day, and found that every building in the entire town had been destroyed. The only thing standing was the water tower. My companion had recently baptized a family there and, fortunately for them, they’d moved from Barneveld the previous day to be closer to their new church.
