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

Couples Success Story

I regularly post success stories on the mission website. This one was so fun, I thought I would put it here. It's from Elder Dayton and Moala:

We had a lady who was thinking about baptism this past week. she is quite a sharp lady and was thinking very hard about the decision to be baptized. We took the Myers teaching with us to visit this lady. At the beginning of the second lesson with them there, she had adamantly decided that she would not be baptized that coming weekend. (It was Friday when we were teaching her). By the end of the lesson, she out of no where said, "Elder Myers, will you baptize me tomorrow?" Elder myers did in fact baptize this woman and she will have a lifetime fellowshipper because of it...a pretty solid one too! I was reminded of a great lesson-the huge role that senior couples can play when teaching.

Here is a picture of the baptism from Sister Myers' blog
