RAIN: January 9, 2012
It has been raining the entire week non stop. I have been very wet. Me and my companion do a lot of service projects for a lady named Mommy Maeva . . . she . . . calls me Elder Marite which is the equivalent of Elder America in Tahitian. She calls my companion Jon for some reason, but I correct her and tell her to call him Elder Tahiti. While me and my companion were moving trees (something I became very good at at home), I had a funny experience . . .
Love Elder Cosby
