WORK HARDER: January 25,2010

Dear Family,  
     Everything is going well. I eat a lot here in Paea. One of our investigators invites us over and we think we are going to do a lesson but he just wants us to eat.  He says no lesson today eat.   So I eat. Elder Anderson came and talked with the missionaries yesterday.   To make a long story short, he told us to work harder. Missions are awesome.   There are so many opportunities to learn,  it's easy to see why the prophet tells every young man to go on a mission.   Elder Anderson speaks French so he did the stake conference and our missionary conference in French.  He also speaks Spanish and Portugese. Thats all.
Love Yall, 
Love Elder Cosby
