Enjoyed today visiting Spokane! We took some things from the assembly to the beautiful new synod office with a huge turkey roaming the grounds, had a wonderful lunch at Lindaman’s with Cathy Steiner, the synod’s efficient secretary, took Central Lutheran-Yakima’s LWR School Kits to the ingathering truck at St. Luke’s Lutheran Church in Spokane where we met a gentleman named Bill Wenke who used to live on Elm St. in St. Paul, NE! Shopped at Trader Joe’s…we really need one in Yakima…and roamed the mall before having a delicious meal at Blaze Pizza near the Gonzaga campus. Then made the 3 hour trip back to Yakima. Always nice seeing the gorgeous Washington countryside!
