Hey everyone! Hoe gaat het met jullie? Leven is goed en onze Hemelse Vader is beter. Jullie zijn geweldig! Have fun google translating that! I hope you're all doing wonderful! Life is great! We had a super fun week as well!

We had a great week this week! We have a new investigator named Jimmy who is so awesome! He showed up at the Father's Day activity and at church and we were able to see him 3 times this week and he's the greatest! He can play piano and guitar by ear and already has "I Am a Child of God" pretty much down. Pretty awesome and he's reading out of the Book of Mormon and came to church on Sunday! So cool! He's super funny and is just a wonderful guy. Elder Van Den Herik had to fix a lot of bikes for the zone leaders this week which took up kind of a lot of time, but hey what can you do? So that went really well and he got them all fixed up! I also went on an exchange with Elder Hunt in his area on Friday and that was just awesome! Elder Hunt is a stud missionary and I learned a lot from him about listening to understand and on just being a consecrated missionary. He's awesome! We got three new investigators and they all seem pretty awesome which is so cool! Happy for them for sure. Definitely the highlight of the week was the baptism! Lilian got baptized and was so ready for it! She was literally jumping up and down when she passed the interview for it. The Spirit that was there at her baptism was just so amazing and sweet. She knows the covenant that she has made and is fully prepared to endure to the end. She has more faith than anyone I've met before. Love her! That was just so awesome!!!!! I can't explain it in this email, but she is just so wonderful. There was also branch conference for Paramaribo branch on Sunday and that was awesome! President Verwey is an awesome teacher and talked a lot about bringing the lost sheep back, on loving one another and how to react when situations are tough. Just a spiritual feast and it was a great Sunday! That was our week!

Seeing Lilian's faith has been so inspiring as well and it's made me think a lot on how I can improve my faith overall. Faith is so important and is the first principle of the Gospel! Without faith, who are we? As we strive to develop our faith and use it to bless the lives of others, the miracles will come!

Love you all and I hope that you have a sweet and fantabulous week! You all are the best! Lobi!
