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

Guyana Buses and Trucks

It is entertaining to drive down the streets of Guyana - or I should say - to be driven.

I love the sights but I feel for the senior couple drivers.

This tour it was Elder Evans who drove us around and he did great! I loved watching Sister Evans sweetly pat his arm when a temporarily terrifying moment occurred instead of screeching loudly, as I might have done if I had been sitting in the co-pilot's seat. He did say that his arm gets worn out after a day's driving.

A fun sight are the sayings painted on trucks and buses. I was surprised at first that so many of them are religious, but as I got to know the Guyanese I realized they are faithful people.

Here are a few I was able to catch this week:

"Don't die blond" - I'm not sure where this thought came from (not many blonds in Guyana)

"Don't take worries...& give God troubles"

"Stay focused" - excellent advice


"Biblical Fact"

And our very favorite
