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

Amazing August

This scripture struck me this morning:

"Send forth the elders of my church unto the nations which are afar off; unto the islands of the sea...that the borders of my people may be enlarged, and that her stakes may be strengthened and that Zion my go forth unto the regions round about" (D&C 133:7-8)

What a blessing it is to be doing the Lord's work in the islands and nations of the West Indies. We are on the verge of having stakes to 'strengthen' as many people join the church each month.

The missionaries, once again, worked hard and reached a stretching goal. They brought 202 people into the waters of baptism during the month of August (88 in August 2007, 58 in August 2006).

We build these mission goals upon each missionary's personal goal. They are becoming great men as they grow in confidence, skill, and the ability to receive guidance from the spirit.

We continue to be amazed at the unfolding of this great work!

We are actually off to a couple of islands today - Grenada and then St Vincent. A number of visitors, including government officials, are invited to a fireside we will be holding in Grenada tonight. Then we get to meet the newest West Indies missionary couple, the Collins, in St Vincent.
