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

We are in Canje

We traveled from Suriname to Canje, Guyana yesterday and will be having zone conference today and a missionary fireside tonight. I'll take plenty of pictures and try to get them posted. The internet is unreliable and slow here but I will try.

I just got this note from a blog follower in the Netherlands (took out the names).

Dear Sister Robison,

Sorry for using your eMail adress, but I cannot post a comment on your weblog. This is what I wrote:

Thank you for providing the possibiliy to read a lot about the WIM. You missed a country in your list. The Netherlands! I follow your website daily to read about the WIM.

I am an acquaintance of ....I am an investigator here in Holland. I discussed a lot with... prior to his mission. So it's nice to be able to follow him.

I want to thank you for putting the homework for the missionaries on the internet. I will study the same in the meantime. I asked the Elders here for a copy of the Bookof Mormon and printed "Preach My Gospel" from the internet. So I can "join" your teaching. Thanks again for providing that possibility.

I wish you and your husband all the best.

I am so glad that many of you are enjoying the blog. My goal is to connect you with the mission and to share the gospel in any way I can. Please share any ideas you have on how to make this better - questions I can answer? information I can share?
