SURPRISE : March 12, 2012

Dear Family,
President changed my finish date to the 29th of May. Me and Elder Ezekiela are having a lot of good success. I've learned a lot more  english phrases. Me and an investigator that I really like (Christian) got in a calm debate about prophets and the law of the land.  After talking for a long time and geting nowhere I asked him if he believed the Book of Mormon was true.  He said yes.  So we fixed his baptismal date.   Also for Ezekiela's first contact we met a young man named Tamatoa with his friends that were drinking and smoking but he wasn't. They told us to go away but he said I'm gonna go over and talk to them.  He asked some really good questions.  We gave him a Book of Mormon.  He told us that he was gonna read the entire thing and we could come back whenever we wanted and then he asked us to play ping pong with him and he destroyed us both.
Love yall,
Love Elder Cosby
