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

transfers went fine

This is what transfer day looks like in the mission home. There are constant incomings and outgoings of hungry missionaries.

In case you are wondering - all the missionaries made it to their new areas just fine.

So many missionaries are driving and flying on transfer day that I can't relax until everyone is settled. Can you imagine the logistics of getting missionaries moved around the West Indies every six weeks? There are multiple airport runs, mountains of luggage to squeeze in cars, drives across countries and add to that the fact that no missionary should spend time alone. It gets crazy but the couples, assistants, and zone leaders work so hard that everything (except for an occasional grouchy customs agent who decides she doesn't want missionaries in her country) turns out perfectly.
