Hey everyone! Hope that you're still enjoying the rain in California while I've got the sun of Bonaire! Loving it here and just making the most of every moment!

Things are great in Bonaire! Loving it here and it's really good to be back. I missed the people here a lot and it's been so fun to be back with them! Still doing a lot of contacting, but things are going good and we have a couple cool people to teach so it's going well. We taught investigators Adi and Irene on Monday and brought Brother Mens with us and that was a really cool experience. It was so cool to see how much Brother Mens has grown and he did so awesome in the lesson! He testified how he came to know that the Book of Mormon is true and shared some spiritual experiences that he's had. He killed it! Those investigators are doing pretty well, and we just have to get them to church now! Step by step, but they are coming along and they are reading so they're going in the right direction! One of the coolest experiences that we had this week was when we were going to teach President and Sister DePalm. We were there and had dinner with them and were about to start the lesson when their neighbor (who is Dutch) came outside and asked if he could sit with us! Miracle!!! When I was here the first time in Bonaire, I had been trying to meet him so hard and went by like 7 times with no success or he just ignored us, but this time he asked if he could sit with us. How cool is that?! We had a really good lesson on God and he asked us questions about why we were on missions and how President and Sister DePalm became members (they are also both returned missionaries). His name is Martin and he was really cool and we just had a super spiritual experience with him that was awesome. Things here are great and I love the members!

Also on Saturday night, I got a call from President DePalm asking me to give a talk the next morning in church. Of course I said yes and I felt it went pretty well. I based it around Alma 37:6
 Now ye may suppose that this is foolishness in me; but behold say unto you, that by small and simple things are great things brought to pass; and small means in many instances doth confound the wise.

It is through the small and simple things that we do each and every day that allow us to progress and to continue our spiritual experiences. one other scripture that I loved was D&C 64:33 
33 Wherefore, be not weary in well-doingfor ye are laying the foundation of great work. And out of small things proceedeth that which is great. 

Keep on working hard and staying strong, even when the times are hard. You all are wonderful and I love you all! Keep on being awesome! Thanks for the support! Lobi!
