Unto the Islands of the Sea

Dear Family, Well I just wrote y'all an awesome email but the computer is terrible and I lost it but I gotta go so I can't rewrite it, but just know that I love y'all. I safely hid from the tsunami in "the jungle" and saw miracles.
From our Mothers' Day phone conversation: The island area where Elder Cosby is serving did not experience the devastating destruction that Japan did from the tsunami as it's full force did pass by the island of Tahiti, but they were in a severe weather alert and experienced high winds and other exciting/unsettling weather patterns.
