The Jeep and a big bucket of cookie dough ice cream

Hey everyone! it's been a good week!

Tuesday we had specialized training and got to ride in the transfer spaceship (big fancy 12 passenger van). It was lots of fun. and at specialized training we learned a lot about the new Easter initiative and the talk "We're doing a great work and cannot come down."  It was really good, and we had a lot of fun doing team building activities. We also started teaching Jim, who's an awesome investigator who's living in a member's home. it was a really powerful lesson and we had a lot of fun getting to know him too.

Wednesday,  we had a really good lesson with Jim and he basically told us a bunch of stories from his

childhood. He apparently was like the sandlot kids -- times 10! It was fun! I also got pulled over for having a bike rack on our car! it was funny, but the officer was really nice once he saw we were missionaries and didn't give us a ticket. We also had a really good lesson with a lady in the ward who's been struggling with coming back to church and then she found a copy of "Our Search for Happiness" in Wal-mart or something and the book just spoke to her soul. it was truly a miracle! Her daughter is actually considering taking the lessons now too, because we didn't push anything on her while we were there.

Thursday was a long day. We got to road trip to the doctors in Liberty Lake and had Carl's jr and almost stopped for Slurpees, but we missed the turn. it was a lot of fun though and we listened to some good talks as well. We had correlation meeting after that and then played basketball with the Elder's Quorum.

Friday we had a lot of fun doing service at the food bank and they gave us a huge thing of Umpequa ice cream -- it's super tasty! Cookie dough! We also had one of the Young men in the ward come out with us and had several good lessons.

Saturday we had a baptism for a girl in the ward, then we met a few people with Bro. Marugi, who's super nice, awesome guy! And then we did service for Sis Warren, helping her move some stuff into a storage unit and such out in the boonies. We also met with her son and daughter, who aren't members and just made a good impression. NO one out here likes to be pushed.

Sunday we had Stake Conference and set up for exchanges with the Ione elders -- it's going to be fun and miracle filled! We also had a couple nice visits and have some service projects coming up this week that are going to be fun!

It was a solid week and i'm excited for the prospects of meeting the ward next week in church!

Love ya!
Elder Griffin
