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

Picture of the Day

We are away from the missionaries for few days, so my camera has been idle. But I am starting to go through the photos they gave me for the next slideshow. I thought it might be fun to share a 'picture of the day' occasionally when I come across something fun.

Here is my first Picture of the Day (taken by Elder Mundy):

Doesn't Elder Guy look determined as he and Elder Barton perform this baptism in Tobago? You see, there is no font in Tobago so baptisms are done in the sea. Occasionally, the water doesn't calm down and cooperate. But dedicated Elders always find a way to get the job done. They told me that the water looked somewhat calm when they walked out but just as they finished the baptism a big wave rolled in. They quickly moved to shield and steady the young lady and took the hit themselves.

Here are a few more pictures of the baptism:



Missionary work is the best! (Elders Barton, Mundy, and Guy)

I'm sorry, but I just had to giggle a little bit when I saw the picture of the elders being tossed around by the wave. I guess I was picturing my brother in that situation. Oh the memories these boys will bring home. Maybe next time they should try just body surfing the wave in. :)
