July 25, 2011: HEIVA

Dear Family,
It's super super hot in here so I don't think I'll send a big email 'cause I might die. I just read an article in the Ensign or Liahona  where President Monson asked us to pray for places where missionary work is limited, which is here. There are several islands that could have missionaries but don't because of the limit of missionary visas they give out. Honestly for here nothing new has happened because all our lessons keep getting cancelled.  Everyone is at the big Heiva parties all the time. As we were coming here one of our investigators pushed back a lesson that has been pushed back for 2 months, but we are finding new people.   It is really beautiful here.
Love, Elder Cosby
