Aug 22, 2011: I WAS SORE FOR 4 DAYS, BUT IT WAS AWESOME!
Things are going very well. Elder Raihauti broke his second bike wheel. He is just too giant and the poor wheel can't take it. The work is going great. We had a baptism this week of two kids whose Mom is a member but the Dad is not. Sadly the farther didn't come to the baptism. Last week the email place was closed because it was a holiday. It is always a holiday here. But last week we went on the most difficult hike I have ever been on in my life . . . to a place called the centipede hole (apoo o viri). Basically, it is a climb up a sheer cliff to a big cave and you use ropes to get up. I was sore for 4 days, but it was awesome. The guy that took us there went with his wife and his 4 year old son and took him up on his back. I don't know how he did it. Our new stake president is rallying the troops for missionary work. I have never gotten so many member references ever. It's amazing to me how much things have changed thanks to him. He keeps on saying that there will be a stake in BoraBora in 3 years and I think it's gonna happen. Well we are gonna go to a hotel and eat so I'll tell y'all if it's worth it to stay in a BoraBora bungalo.
Love, Elder Cosby
