COOL EXPERIENCES: March 26, 2012

Dear Family,
This week my companion was really sick. It started at a family's house where we were eating and in the middle he got up and threw up. There was a non member there who was the boyfriend of the daughter and he made my companion medicine out of plants (it worked) for three days.  We engaged him to take the lessons and told him to come to church so he cut his long hair and came to church.   Other than that we stayed a lot at the house to rest.  I read a lot of scriptures and Liahonas.  

Saturday we had the baptism of Tehotu   It was great.  He is a great guy.  He told us that he was going to go on a mission.  He is 16.   We also started the lessons with a guy named Doodi who told us he planned on being baptized and serving a mission after and had already planned most of his baptismal program.  Cool experiences.  I like my mission. I like being busy doing important stuff.   Love y'all

Love, Elder Cosby
