Zone Training and Stake Conference with Elder Snow (and my favorite line of the letter..I'm NOT a knucklehead!)

Elder Snow came to Stake Conference
(Pretty cool!!! His son lived in the 8th Ward by us!)

Hey everyone!
It's been a pretty good week!

On Tuesday last week we went to orphan acres and we were putting in fence posts, it was lots of fun. lots of hard work. Afterwards we went to the Klingeburgs (who are moving to utah soon) and visited with their family, it was a really nice visit and we're helping them a lot with the move. We had dinner at the Bishop's home that evening and had some super tasty tacos! it was fun getting to know their family better and afterwards we rushed over to get to it Tuesday and played soccer in the new park across the street. It was lots of fun and fortunately, no one got hurt!

Wednesday we had a bit of a rough day, lots of people not home and lots of other people pretending to not be home. it was a good day though. We did drop by a talk from conference for Kelly and had a nice visit with her. she is doing really well and learning a lot of good things about the gospel.
Thursday we went to pullman to get our car fixed, it was a fun trip and afterwards we went and helped Bro Schroeder with vaccinating his daughters cows, it was a good service project and we enjoyed it a lot. We also served at the food bank and did lots of running around helping move boxes and such. it was fun. then we went to the Richards for dinner, it was a really good visit and really good food.

Friday we had zone training. Lots of good lessons from our fellow missionaries about appropriate dress and such. (apparently it's hard to be obedient) but i'm not a knuckle head, so it wasn't too bad. We spent the afternoon helping close a missionary apartment with Elder Wall. It was good and we enjoyed our time with the walls. they are great. We had dinner with Bro Schroeder and had correlation meeting. It was really good and a lot of fun. We also went to Amber and Gregory's and had a really good lesson about strength through the atonement. It was good to see them again.

Saturday was stake conference and Elder Snow of the 70/ the church historian came to combined the stakes. It was a different kind of stake conference, but it was definitely good.

Sunday morning we had stake conference and the stakes were officially combined, now our ward gets our building to ourselves and it was just a "historic" stake conference. really good. That afternoon we had a really good lesson on the holy ghost and the blessings of the organization of the church. it was good. Kelly committed to praying about being baptized and i'm excited to follow up with her. We also stopped by Mrs Bush's house and she is still sick, but we're trying to get her member neighbors to reach out and take care of her. afterwards we went to Dinner with the Hansen family and had a really good visit. They are a fun family. Then we went to the Zirkers and followed up on their family mission plan. They did it and have seen miracles from it already! It was amazing!
That's pretty much my week!

love ya'll!
Elder Bryce Griffin
