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

(here's a link to an online version - http://www.trinidadexpress.com/index.pl/article_news?id=161441342)

Elders Palmer and Neilson, who are serving in San Fernando, Trinidad were just getting off a mini-bus ride (maxis in Trinidad) and saw smoke coming out of a home. Next to the home was a women that appeared a bit disoriented, but was safely out of the house. They first asked if the fire department had been contacted and then escorted the lady across the street to keep her safely out of the way. Soon the home was engulfed in flames and a crowd of 300 had gathered. One of the members of the crowd was a photographer, who seeing two missionaries, escorting a woman away from the house, thought he had a great story. Although the facts in the article are embellished, none the less, it is nice see the positive comments in the newspaper.

I do believe angels go before them.
