Strange Week

This week we had Elder Kopischke of the presidency of the quorum of 70 come speak. He did a zone conference first where he just did basically a question answer section. It was pretty cool, they never do that usually and he gave great answers to everything we asked. Then we had a leadership meeting with just the zone leaders and assistants and sister training leaders and Elder Kopischke. Well and Pres and Sis Wolfert.  It was crazy. Super powerful, but he helped us realize we’re not quite achieving our full potential in this mission.
Other than that we had a lot of appointments fall through. It was frustrating. But one lesson with Steve Archer was so amazing. We taught him about the Plan of Salvation but when we taught about the pre-existence he was blown away by it. Like just couldn't even grasp the concept fully. He's progressing steadily, it's still just his family that's holding him down. At church yesterday we sang Love at Home and it almost moved him to tears. He's so cool.
Asia had some opposition come up like we said last week, but it all got cleared up. She says she knows it is because of our blessing, too. But then she missed church and when we went by for an appointment yesterday she flaked out so were a little concerned for her.
The weather has been bipolar as usual. Super nice one day, really warm the next, pretty chilly the day after.  But that's just GA. Today for p-day we’re planning on doing some rugby (two hand touch) and ultimate frisbee in the rain. Should be a lot of fun.
We've been working with some really cool less active people recently,  too and our recent converts. Danny Mendez has been having some problems but he'll be okay I'm sure. The Witherspoons are mixed. The boys are doing pretty good and are at church almost every week, but the girls haven't been for awhile.
Our Ward Mission Leader had us over for breakfast yesterday and his wife gave me and my companion some sweet St. Patty's day socks. They're so cool that I felt obligated to mention them in this email.
Alright that's about it. Still a missionary. Still love the church and know it's true. Still wanna stay out here forever.
