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

Island Zone Conference - March 26

We flew from St Martin to St Lucia yesterday (the famous Piton mountains are at the far right)

President Robison interviewed all the island missionaries last night

This morning we had zone conference (actually most of the day - from 8:30 to 1:30)

Tonight we fly back to Trinidad.

So - relaxing on the gorgeous beaches of St Lucia is (unfortunately) not part of the program

But I did get to peak at one this morning out my window

However, we enjoyed an even more glorious sight - the missionaries of the islands

Here they are island by island


Elders Macintosh and Tycksen, Elder and Sister Wood (who finish their mission next month), Elders Owens and Youngyen

St Vincent

Elders Muse, Fox, Sarager and Biver (the Hattons could not make it)

St Lucia

Elder and Sister Collings (newly arrived from Trinidad), Elders Fox, Garrett, Proctor, and West, Elder and Sister Faux (brand new) and (in front) Elders Rosales and Nestegard

Elder and Sister Faux will do a wonderful work in Vieux Fort St Lucia

We had two St Lucian prospective missionaries with us

Janiel (Lily) Aimable (baptized last November) and Davey Goddard (baptized about a month ago on Valentines day)

After I took that picture, they said - "We need one with OUR missionaries!"

We had fabulous musical number by Elders Youngyen, Young and Biver

We finished with a nice lunch after (I forgot to take pictures)

The missionaries are healthy and happy and working hard!
