Yesterday our Branch President took us and two senior sisters from Bonaire on a tour of the island. We saw many parts of the island that we had never seen before. We saw beautiful luxurious homes and townhouses, 2 golf courses, and many beautiful beaches. We drove through a national park which mainly consisted of rocks, cactus, and brush. Notice the picture of a cactus wall and a stone wall for fencing. The ocean water is turquoise colored.

Our Week in Aruba

I've mentioned the tall barrel cactus and bushy brush that is all over. These pictures show a little of that.

An exciting event was a baptism in the Caribbean Sea. We had a short service at the chapel and then drove to the beach, had the baptism, sang a song, had a prayer and then had some refreshments.The last picture shows the young elders and young sisters that we have been working with. The first picture shows most of the women at the baptism.

We've discovered on the far side of the island the beautiful high rise hotels. We had a lovely dinner and watched a water fountain show that was coordinated with music.
