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 is something interesting about the West Indies Mission:

Most young elders go home planning to serve a couple mission


They see the blessings (and fun) that comes into the lives of senior couples as the serve missions.

We have wonderful senior missionaries in the West Indies Mission. They find, teach, and baptize just like the young elders and also do so much more - like mentor young elders, spoil young elders (appropriately), welcome new members, find those who are lost, train branch leaders and teachers, love the little children and on and on and on...

They elders call senior missionaries 'magic' or the 'secret weapon' because of the way their life experiences and deep testimonies help investigators progress in testimony and conversion.

We had a couples conference this week and I made this slideshow to honor the tremendous work they do.

To see this video full screen just click on the little square screen in the lower right hand corner of the video window

Please forward this to anyone who is 'on the fence' about serving a couple mission.

The couples here would say, "Get going! It is the greatest thing you can do for yourselves and your families!"
