We have frozen this blog as a historical, yet informational view at what life is like in the West Indies Mission for all those called to serve. This blog was designed for the families and friends of those missionaries serving in the West Indies Mission from July 2006 to July 2009. Every six weeks, photos taken at zone conference as well as a new slide show including every person baptized were posted on the blog. All of the slide shows are also available on our You Tube channel. The current West Indies Mission blog can be found here. Posts on our missionary experience can be found here and earlier. And finally, if you are a returned missionary who served in the West Indies, there is a current blog for you. Click here or visit westindiesrm@blogspot.com

Suriname Zone Conference

We had zone conference today and I think we wore the Elders out!

But it was great.

We talked and talked about commitments, dispensations, apostasy, Joseph Smith, and the Book of Mormon from 8:30 AM until lunch at 1:30 and then President Robison took the Elders aside and talked some more.

They are great young men - so dedicated and obedient.

I just know the work in Suriname is going to explode. They are doing well now but there is incredible potential there for building the church and moving towards having a stake.

Here are a few pictures (it may seem like all I take pictures of is food - but that is when I have a break and can grab my camera!):

This is the most fantastic lunch in all the mission - Indonesian food made by the Salijos. These are just the starters!

The first time I has zone conference lunch in Suriname I made the mistake of thinking the starters were the entire meal. Now I know there is always something wonderful to follow. This time we had Saoto Soup

The missionaries love it!

I just received an email from my son who said how wonderful the conference was. He said he learned so much. Thanks for all the time you give. It was good to see him in the photos and that he got such good things to eat.
