ONE LEARNS A LOT ON A MISSION: November 15, 2010

Sent by Elder Oldroyd's Mom:  Elder Cosby and Elder Oldroyd

Hey Family,
I love you.  Sorry I didn't have a chance to email last week.  We almost didn't have a chance this week also.  That's just the way it is here.  I told president to call y'all the instant I died or went to the hospital, so don't worry if I don't send emails for a while   I also told him to call if I don't love you anymore, so that's not a reason either.  I don't have any time to write, but if anyone is thinking of sending me stuff, I really really want flash cards, ties, and white shirts. Stay cool.   I love you guys and thank you Sam And Heather family for the package.

The mission is good and hard and one learns a lot on a mission.
Love,  Elder Cosby
