Exploring Montana! Exchanges, District meetings & a miracle

Hey everyone!
Janis, Pendall, Brother Fletcher, Morrison

 Excuse me if this letters a bit scatterbrained, woke up early this morning so we could get a jumpstart on p-day to go out to swinging bridge Montana, so i'll hopefully have some good pictures next week! With that, it also means I've served in 3 states, served foreign for one day and been to 3 different countries (Canada, US, and the Indian reservation.) So that's exciting!

Anyways, to my week!
Monday last week we went to Riley Creek Park for dinner with our bishop and his family, it was a lot of fun and a lot of good food! Riley creek is beautiful and we might start having our district go there on p-days.
Tuesday we had a really good visit with a brother who's wife passed away recently. We invited him to work towards going to the temple so he can be sealed to her. He was really excited about that. We also tried a few different families, but no body was home. OH well. it happens.
Wednesday we went on exchanges. It was a lot of fun. I went with Elder Morrison to Newport. He's a lot of fun and we were able to visit a lot of people. I enjoyed it a lot and i even got a new pocket knife!
Thursday we weekly planned most of the day and had correlation meeting. Then we drove out to the Kesler's for some good old fashioned North Idaho company and dinner. They are very into being "prepared" for when the crap hits the fan in the US. It was pretty funny and I really enjoy their family. On our way back into town, we saw a police car lay down a spike strip and then a couple minutes later we saw a little rice burner car going about 120 mph towards town with about 5 police cars in tow. It was pretty exciting. Luckily we were in the church parking lot when we saw them go by. Never were able to find the story on why he was running.
Friday we had district meeting. Elder Pendell made it a General conference district meeting, complete with a whole bunch of flowers, mo tab and a really formal and hilarious introduction. After district meeting we got a call from the Walls and they ended up coming by to give us a new co2 detector and check up on our apartment. It was good to see them again. For dinner we went with the Young family to the fancy golf club steak house. It was delicious! I had a ribeye stake and Brownie delight for dessert. We also had a really nice visit with Dave Bitten. He has a whole bunch of really old really cool cars and he's super fun to chat with. He even has a ford model A truck. I really like him. he's funny.
Saturday we had a really cool miracle. We were out looking for a less active and ended up on a driveway with 3 houses, unclear of which one was supposed to be his. So we went to one house that had a lady outside working on her car. We got there just in time for her to take the tire off and see the damage from a bad tire. She ended up really needing help, so we called our ward mission leader and before the WML training  on Sunday we went over there and were able to get her a good evaluation of the damage and offer her some help in finding a new tire for the car. We were also able to pray with her both times and she's agreed to take the discussions. I'm really excited for the prospects there. She's a sweet lady. 
Sunday we had lots and lots of church. After we went to Jennifer's (that's her name by the way,) we went to a ward mission leader meeting in Sandpoint with the mission presidency. It was really informative on exactly what a ward mission leader is supposed to do. Afterwards we had a dinner appt that was far away. So lots and lots of driving. But it was a fun dinner. The Wiser's and the Miller's are great families with lots of cute little kids. It was great. Lots of chaos and lots of good food! By the time we were done there, it was time to go home. So we ended up at home and planned and crashed for the night.

It was a super fun and busy week!
Love ya'll!
Elder Bryce Griffin
