SORRY AGAIN: March 28, 2011

Dear Family,
Sorry I haven't been able to write very much during these past couple weeks, but everything is going super good. So we baptized Norma and Jean-Daniel,  and over the course of the lessons they changed a lot.  Our zone leader thought we were messing with him when we told him how much.

Also, I haven't had a companion for 3 weeks and not much work has gotten done in my area.  I hope my new companion says, "It's like you haven't done anything here for the past couple of months, what's the deal?" So I can laugh and say, "Exactly,"  but actually these past three weeks were really cool because I did a lot of splits with the ward missionaries and pretty much that means here the former missionaries.  I learned alot from them, but this last week they all went to BYUH so I had no one to help me with my work and both of the zone leaders got sick, so I learned alot about scriptures and languages. I hope more exciting things happen next week so I can write y'all exciting things, but sitting in the back of the zone leaders car all day is the opposite of exciting. 
Love y'all
Love Elder CosbyC
