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

Wednesday in Georgetown Guyana

We had zone conference this morning with half the Guyana missionaries. They are a big impressive group!

The gate to the church was locked so I got to watch them arrive in the rain one by one and wait in their bright white shirts.

The group was quiet but thoughtful today and many told me they had 'ah ha' moments as they took their questions to the scriptures.

We had a fine musical number from Elders Young, Clark, Richardson, and Vernes and led by the talented Elder Ritchey

Here is our group shot. We couldn't find a nice tree of life to stand by as in Suriname. If fact, we couldn't even find a single tree on the church property - so sad.

They are far away so here is a closer look

Aren't they sharp?

And here are the wonderful couples (plus a couple of Trinis in the middle)

Langfords (CES), Larsons (proselyting, Diamond), Robisons, Tanners (humanitarian, sadly going home very soon), Evans (proselyting and management, Georgetown)

The elders reviewed area books after conference

Elders Fisher, Carlson, Williams, and Brenkmann

Elders McDaniel, Sarager, Ritchey, and Harris

Elders Tupou, Falatau, Richardson, Nestegard, Williamson, Vaia (back) and ? (back)

This activity always seems to disintegrate into manly push up contests

Elder Nestegard dazzling the group with a long series of one armed push ups

Elder Findlay assisted by Elder Vaia managed one of these

Packages arrived. So fun!

These new boots?

They're 'made for walkin' - in Guyana as the rainy season begins

Elder Carlson and Fisher
