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

Mission Blessings

I try to keep this blog about the missionaries and not about my husband and I. But today I just have to share one of our mission blessings.

We left home in July 2006 with these ten sweet grandchildren - eight granddaughters and two grandsons

Here is what has happened in 2008 - and we only have four married children!

Baby boy Mason - born in March (on President Robison's birthday!)

Baby boy Jeremiah - born in May

Baby boy Jack - born in August

and yesterday IDENTICAL TWIN BABY BOYS Henry and James joined our family

I know - enough pictures! But I love this one with the orange hats

This army (basketball team?) of future missionaries is one of our precious mission blessings

We now have eight granddaughters and seven grandsons

The two hardest things are:

Not being home to help out

Getting a picture of all fifteen grandchildren (or at least of the five boys)!

Congratulations! It is tough being a long distance grandmother. Just think of the blessing your family is receiving with nice healthy grandsons. Thanks so much for sharing!
Fondest regards,
Sister Ross

What sweet little kids. I only can imagine how hard it is to be away for all of their births. However, because of your sacrifice as well as your childrens, our missionary sons are being so blessed by you, as well as the people of the West Indies. We will all be forever grateful. Thanks to you and your family. Those are some mighty beautiful grandchildren!
