Panhandlers Pies, Restaurant and Bakery in Sandpoint, Idaho
Hey everyone!
It's been a crazy busy week! quick and short too because of the holiday!
Tuesday after emailing we went out to Sandpoint and had SUPER tasty Burgers at Panhandlers restaurant. It's owned by a member, so we got a really good deal. Then we went out to a hike in the middle of nowhere and had fun hiking with the missionaries in Sandpoint, unfortunately, I didn't get any pictures. The evening was spent at the ward social and talent show, we had a lot of good food and enjoyed the company of the ward members.
Wednesday morning we went to Bro. Cook's house and got some info about different LA families in the ward. It was helpful, save us from going up to a few more angry people who we don't know in the ward. We spent the afternoon out in the boonies and met a few really nice families, and then had dinner at the Myrvangs. It was a super good dinner, and afterwards Sis Myrvang gave us a bunch of food from her food storage! It was truly a miracle, because we weren't able to go shopping on pday and now we've got more than enough food to last us a couple weeks!

Thursday we weekly planned, it was a pretty good one, and then we went on splits with the EQ presidency, it was really productive and we got to visit a lot of really good families.
Friday we drove to Sandpoint for zone training and car inspections. Our car was nice and clean and zone training was super spiritual. We learned (in short) about quantum physics and it's relationship to God. It was pretty interesting. update's and explanations are available to people in person, but unfortunately, I couldn't explain it over the email. We also got some new rules, but they aren't to exciting. After Zone Training, we had exchanges with the newport elders. It was just alright.

Saturday was Elder Pendell's Birthday, so we surprised him and Bro Fletcher drove up to give him a birthday lunch and spend some time with us. It was great! Absolutely love Bro Fletcher!
The evening was spent in priest lake at the potluck with the members who live up there. Priestlake is beautiful and it was enjoyable driving up with our ward mission leader Bro Hatfield. It was a lot of fun and the members up there are so nice.

Sunday was nice. I always enjoy fast Sundays and we had our first ward correlation when our auxiliary leaders are there. It was really good. We were able to discuss the families we needed to and do it quick so it wasn't overbearing. For dinner we went to the Leavitts, they are such a fun family, and they really took the ward mission plan to heart! There's is beautiful and short. but it's something there family can handle and I'm really excited for it. They're going to see miracles soon!
That's my week!
Love ya'll!
Elder Bryce Griffin
