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

The incredible expandable mission home

We have just finished a crazy busy week and a half and I have renewed gratitude for living in such a perfect mission home. I did a blog post on it here. It is a nice spacious older home with plenty of room for gatherings.

Here is what has taken place here the past 11 days:

Oct 7-9 - Zone Leader Council with 23 missionaries (2 nights, unmeasureable quantities of food prepared and eaten)
From Oct 08 ZL Council

Oct 12 - Mission home fireside with about 50 in attendance

Oct 13-14 - New Elders - here for 2 days and nights - at least they were supposed to but they got delayed and missed a night

Oct 15 - Departing Elders devotional and sleep over

Oct 17-18 - District Presidents training - 9 men visiting for 2 nights from all over the mission
From Oct 08

I had a little pre-halloween fun while they were here and fed them pumpkin pie made from fresh pumpkin (the absolute best I have ever tasted)

Trinidad pumpkins are different than the ones I am used to - but the sure do taste good! I cook it all the time for a vegetable.

and occasionally, I have a little fun

You would not believe the quantity of food that has gone in and out of this house lately! The amazing Trinidad senior couple missionaries pitched in and made it all possible.

Tomorrow we leave on zone conference tour - so the mission home (and couples) will have a few days of well-deserved rest.
