Canada, a fallout shelter and a light at the end of the tunnel

April 20, 2015
Hi everyone!
Holy cow it's been a busy week!

Monday we drove up to the Colville cross for p day and had fun up there and hiked around, I made sloppy joes for the Fitzsimmons that evening and we watched Joseph Smith prophet of the restoration with Jimmy, it was really good.

Tuesday we road tripped to Spokane and on the way back we stopped at Dickies for lunch. IT WAS SOO GOOD!!!! I even decided to buy a big yellow cup t-shirt. 
We also helped with service that afternoon and got to see an awesome water fall out at Douglas FAlls. It was beautiful!

Beauty, eh? I went foreign on my mission (Canada!) 
Wednesday we went to Canada for a blitz and saw miracles! It was a super fun trip and one of the biggest miracles we saw, we were walking forever and then this guy on a motorcycle stopped at an intersection right in front of us. and amazingly enough, his motorcycle died right when we walked up to him! It was sweet! We had a really good lesson with him and he even took a book of Mormon. It was way cool! A really good day in Canada, And now I can say I went foreign!

Thursday we had the BYUI collegiate singers in town and they did a concert, it was super good! It was a great community event and we had a really good turnout. The spirit was strong there!

They said these tracks were inactive, but what's that I hear ...
Friday I went to Ione for exchanges, and it was one of the most ridiculously fun exchanges I have ever been on! We went tie tracting, hiked through an old train tunnel, went to a fallout shelter (it was kinda creepy), pursued some random horses down a road after a service project, went to a waterfall, saw some old abandoned train cars, and found this super cool house out in the boonies that had an amazing view of the river and this way cool track for taking the kayak's down the giant hill to the river! It was so randomly amazing! And all of this while teaching a bunch of people and doing a bunch of service!

Saturday we had an amazing day! Elder Nelson and Elder Clark came to the mission and spoke to us. It was soo good! Elder Clark talked on Luke 6, the wise man built his house upon the rock, and Elder Nelson talked about patriarchal blessings and the Abrahamic covenant. It was super powerful! When he was talking he gave us an Apostalic blessing and it was so powerful! iI knew right then that he was an apostle of the Lord. I felt God's love as he spoke to us. This church is so true!

That night we went boonie tracting and found some random really cool campgrounds and the river! It was lots of fun! It was such an amazing day!

Sunday was fun, we had a weird feeling about transfers and so we spent a lot of time with bro Fitzsimmons and had a lesson with Jimmy. It was a good day, we had dinner at bishop's house and it was super good! Gourmet pot roast! It was super good! Now it's p-day and we're packing up, I'm headed off to Spokane 1st ward/ysa, it's exciting!

Love you all!
Elder Griffin
