THINGS ARE GOING GREAT: February 21, 2011

Dear Family,
  I really like my mission and I really like Tahiti. I like hugging drunk guys, especially Taniela and William. I like it when our investigators run and hide from us and we chase them down. I like eating too much and then literally having to run away covering my plate so that I don't die while a fat Tahitian guy yells at me trying to serve me more cake. . 

I also like how we get awesome new investigators all the time that want to be baptised.  The only problem is that they aren't married with their concubines so they can't be baptised. One of our invistigators  said, "I read the Book of Mormon and it makes me happy. The Book of Mormon is true and it really does make us happy.  Love y'all
Elder Cosby

OK, I'm really missing Elder C's notes! I was sending excerpts to Scott. I feel like Oliver Twist... "Please, sir, may I have some more?"
