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

French Zone Conference

We just returned from a 12 day tour through the mission and I didn't have internet for the last week - so I need to catch up.

We had our final zone conference of the tour in Guadeloupe last Wednesday. Missionaries flew in from Martinique and St Martin (half French - so we had two English speaking Elders too). The conference was great. The French Elders have a tradition of wearing long-sleeved white shirts so they looked extra sharp. It helps that the Abymes chapel we use is air conditioned (most are not in the West Indies). There are five new Elders serving in Guadeloupe so it was a very young group!

Here are a few pictures from Sister Malmrose's and my cameras:

(sorry - this one's blurry but I didn't want to leave anyone out)

The Elders sang a 'thank you' to the sisters who prepared lunch
