Can you tell me the difference between "Missä", "Mistä" and "Mihin"?

I think that I understand that one is to say "Where to" or "from where" but it's complicated to me anyway... maybe with examples I'll understand more, kiitos!

Missä sinä asut? = Where do you live?

Mistä sinä olet kotoisin? = Where are you from?

Minne sinä olet menossa? = Where are you going to?

Mihin is Going to

Missä is "at"

Mistä is Coming from

"Mihin sinä menet?" Where are you going? "Kauppaan" To the shop.

"Missä sinä olet?" Where are you? "Kaupassa" In the shop.

"Mistä sinä tulet?" Where have you come from? "Kaupasta" From the shop.

Note the endings of the location, in this case "shop" matches the ending of the version of "Where" -n -ssa/-ssä -sta/-stä.
