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

A Stake in Trinidad!

This was the perfect finish to a great zone leader council.

As we were preparing for our final testimony meeting, President Robison received an important message:

The first stake in the West Indies was approved and will be formed in Trinidad on the weekend of February 28th!

Does he look happy, or what?





And how about those elders?









The amazing thing was - the entire conference was focused on establishing the church in the West Indies through baptism for enduring conversion and the elders set a goal to baptize the equivalent of a good strong stake in 2009.

So again...it was the prefect finish to a great council
