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

Whites and Mortons

The West Indies Mission is a unique mission. I am pretty sure we have more couples serving here than in any other proselyting mission in the world. We currently have 23 couples. They are wonderful and we are convinced that they are the reason the work is going so well here and we are close to having the first stakes in Trinidad and Guyana. They watch over the elders, find and teach people, and train, retain, and activate members. They also do extremely important work in the mission office (thanks Colemans and Rosses!) That may be be the hardest mission of all. President Robison actively recruits couples to serve in the West Indies. To learn more, look at the sidebar of this blog.

We sadly said goodbye last night to the Whites (far end of table), a great couple who served most of their mission in Georgetown Guyana with a final month in St Vincent. At the same time, we welcomed the Morton's (middle left) who will be serving in Trinidad.

Last week we said farewell to the McGhies (right and left of President Robison). They are now cruising the Mediterranean!
