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

Sunday in Guadeloupe

Guadeloupe is a gorgeous island. It's sometimes called the butterfly island because of its shape. There is one church owned chapel and about six (I think) rented church buildings. The chapel is in Abymes. We attended church meetings in the Basse Terre and Cappesterre branches last Sunday. Here are a few pictures:

The Basse Terre building

Getting ready for church - this young man comes on his own (thus the need for tie help) and wants to get baptized but has not been able to get permission from his family.

The CTR primary class

Fruits in the church yard:


Star Fruit - aren't they fun?

The Cappesterre building

What a view they have out the back!

I echo the Ison's comment. It was awesome to see Brent and the area he is serving in, as well as the members there. We also appreciate all you do so we can see our missionaries.
