I BELONG TO THE CHURCH OF JESUS CHRIST: April 11, 2011
I belong to the Church of Jesus Christ really means alot more than I realized. It means we believe in miracles and revelations and all of those kinds of things. Me and my companion have been seeing alot of miracles this week. Me and Saxton have been having new investigators falling from the sky. The most awesome thing is that all of them are Tahitian lessons, so I am really actually starting to become fluent in Tahitian. 3 of our heaven sent investigators said before we even started the lessons that they wanted to get baptized. I'm starting to understand what "the feild is white already to harvest" means. I really like teaching the gospel. People are so happy when you tell them gospel truths. I'm happy when i tell people gospel truths. The mission is awesome. Everyone should go on a mission 4 or 5 times.
Love, Elder Cosby
