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

Canje and Berbice, Guyana

We traveled to Canje zone conference Tuesday over the brand new Berbice River bridge (after flying to Guyana from Suriname) .

So no more of ferry! (like this - can you find us? we are there)

When we arrived we found wonderful elders

and a cow

Our overall theme was teaching by the spirit. We talked about establishing the church, evaluating teaching, light, and the School of the Prophets.

It was a great conference.

Christopher Jordan has been serving a full-time 'mini' mission for five months. He enters the Dominican Republic MTC in a few weeks and will be the most experienced missionary to ever walk through those doors! Today, President Robison, assisted by Elder Jordan's missionary district, set him apart as a full time missionary.


One the way home we drove through

Sister Robison,
The pictures are great as always. My son looks very happy. Thank you. Palmyra Village in Guyana looks very different from the one in New York.

We just love to see pictures of our missionary, as well as the other missionaries. Elder Averett looks fantastic, happy, peaceful, and still loving every minute of his mission. Thank you for all you do for them and for us back home.
Thank you,
Neina Orrillo (almost Averett!)

We love seeing all the pictures of where our Elder Lauritzen is serving. He looks great, you must be taking good care of him. I can't believe he is coming home in less than a month. I'm sure he is not excited about that! :)

I"ll have to admit - Elder Lauritzen seemed a bit stressed. It is hard to leave such a sweet work and most elders have a hard time anticipating the end of their missions even though they love home.
