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

Christmas Football

The couples and elders around the mission are organizing a variety of Christmas activities. President Robison emphasized making it a special time focused on service. Of course, the highlight for every missionary will be his phone call home. They also get to watch one (approved) movie on Christmas day.

We are home in Trinidad for the holidays (family visiting) so we get to take part in the fun here. Today the zones challenged each other to a big football (soccer) match. I had my son's nice camera to catch the wild action

Elder Cotton's feet?

So - this is what Christmas looks like in Trinidad - a bit different from the snowstorm I hear they are having right now in Utah, eh?
