O BABYLON, O BABYLON, WE BID THEE FAREWELL: Aug
This morning they broke the big heiva hut. We were gonna go sing "Ye elders of Isreal" (O Babylon, O Babylon, we bid thee farewell) while they were breaking it, but I got super sick. But at least that is gone and maybe we will start the work goin' again. This week we had an activity at the motu, which is a smaller island away from the other island. It was cool, but we were stuck on this small island and couldn't leave and couldn't participate in most of the activities, but we fixed several lessons so I was happy. I'm gonna go before I get sick.
Love, Elder Cosby
