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

President Robison restarted missionary work in Tobago in March 2007. There are two great missionaries on the island, Elders Guy and Green, and one small branch in Scarborough. It has gradually progressed from one member to about 15-25 attending church. Elder and Sister Ross will start serving on Tobago next month! We went over for two days this week to have a fireside and work with the missionaries.

Tobago is my favorite island in the mission. St Lucia has more stunning beauty but Tobago is close in beauty and I love the fact that it's quiet and un-touristy.

However, we haven't seen much of the island

Maybe someday....

I should have taken more pictures!

But here is a shot of the fireside
the back of Elder Green's head is nice, isn't it? (sorry parents)

And the darling Williams children - just baptized, along with their mother, a few months ago

Here are a few random Tobago shots

Fish market - on a previous visit we bought the best red snapper here I have EVER eaten! It came from the boat to the seller to our table in just a few hours.

Golf by the sea (no - we didn't)

The missionaries say Scarborough (capitol of Tobago) is the only capitol city where chickens walk freely down the main roads.

Beaches, beaches, beaches

There's a white sand, turquoise water beach at Pigeon Point

Along the road in Bacolet, near Scarborough

darling places to stay in Stonehaven Bay

and of course - there's always a beautiful sunset

We love it here!
