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

Couple Power

West Indies missionaries find, teach, and baptize.

We were reminded last weekend that West Indies couple missionaries do too!

Three couples had baptisms this weekend.

1. The Malmroses, who served in Guadeloupe, taught and baptized Sister Hubert - all in two weeks. It is a sweet story - Elder Malmrose received a blessing from President Gamiette, the French District President, saying that he would baptize someone on his mission. With two weeks to go, that hadn't happened until Sister Valet brought her friend, Sister Hubert to church. The Malmroses and their replacement couple, the Collings, taugth her the lessons. She quickly gained a testimony and was baptized on the Malmrose's last Sunday in Guadeloupe

2. Elder Collings baptized Brother Didier last Sunday in Guadeloupe

3. Elder and Sister Leavitt had a very special experience the last Sunday of their missionary service in Trinidad. Twice a week for 16 months, they visited with Sister Weeks, the non-member wife of the Couva Branch President. She came to church on the last Sunday of the Leavitt's mission and said, "I want to be baptized today."

So she was!

And one more blessing - an investigator attended Sister Weeks' baptism and was so touched that he asked, "Can I be baptized - today?!"

And he was!
