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

Newest of 2009

Here are the four newest West Indies missionaries:

They arrived quite late (around 2:00 AM) minus luggage but they held up well. On their first day they attended a baptism, got oriented at the office and then went out to find and teach.

At the end of their busy day we caught a beautiful sunset...

Elders Kempenaers, Nielson, West and Thomas

...and had a nice dinner and discussion on the best way to begin a mission

A few of the older elders slept in the mission home before early morning transfer flights - so there was lots visiting going on after dinner

Here are two Englishmen - Elder Guy (old) getting ribbed by Elder West (new) for his lost British accent

Relaxing after dinner and the devotional
