SKY KING: DEC 13, 2010

Dear Family,
    I've chosen my favorite investigator. His name is Raiarii (Sky King). He's 18 and the other day we saw him on the way to church. We asked him what he was doing and he said he was going to chuch. We were at the side of the road about 10 minutes from church by bike and he was in shorts, flip flops, and a long sleeve churchish shirt.  After asking how he was getting there, he laughed and said that he was running.   I can tell you how many people won't go to church because they don't have pants or a tie or shoes or transport or a friend there. Raiarii has none of those but for some reason he still goes, even though his friend that is a member has stopped going to church. I  think next week we should all run to church in flip flops.  I'm excited to call for Christmas.   From what I've heard I will call y'all and then y'all will call be back on the same number.  That is all I know.  I'm not sure what time yet or anything like that, but I will let you know as much as I can before. All is well here in Hitiaa and Tiarei. Merry Christmas!  It's about 90 degrees here.  .I hope everything is cool with y'all.  Love y'all
Love Elder Cosby
