August 8, 2011: MIRICLES

Dear Family,

 After the heiva everything has gone awesome.   Our hard work during the yearly Apostasy in BoraBora has paid off.  We tripled everything that we do: lessons and new people and everything this week.  I am super happy and healthy too.   I think last week it was food poisoning due to some chicken I ate but the next day we were up and running ready to see a week full of miricles.   Miricle number one:  We went to share a lesson with a member who has a friend named Rehia who took the lessons a very long time ago but moved and now is back and when we were there she had invited her friend Abby who is super super interested in the Gosple.   Number 2:   Abby is the girlfriend of an old investerigator who was going to be baptised about 8 months ago and was the reason this guy didn't get baptised.  Now they are going to take the lessons together.   Number 3: After eating with one of the ward missionaries we committed him to find an investigator for us.   That night he almost crashed into Rehia and her boyfriend who was stopping her from getting baptised because he smokes and does bad stuff and won't get married.    This good brother talked to the boyfriend and figured out that he wants to change but finds it difficult to talk to the missionaries so now he, with the Ward mission leader, will start helping this man to change.   I heard a talk that in our days the Lord shows us his hand by the way the gosple reaches every corner of the earth.  I testify that that is true and that every one of us can participate and watch the Lord work miricles in the lives around us if we will just open our mouths and share our testimonies.
Love, Elder Cosby
