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

Baptism in the sea

Last week we spent a few days on Tobago with some of our children and grandchildren. They loved the beauty of the island and the sweetness and strong testimonies of the members.

I remember going over to Tobago about a year and a half ago and visiting the only member we knew of on the island.

Now there is a nice thriving branch.

We had over 40 people at a fun night last week. Here is a picture of just the children (along with a few of ours)

While we were in Tobago, President Robison baptized Linda Quashie in the sea (no fonts in Tobago - yet).

Here is what the waves looked like that morning

What to do?

Find a nice sheltered rock to block the waves

and carry on

Hurrah for Israel

Priesthood at work

Happy Elders

It was a beautiful morning
