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

New Georgetown Guyana District Presidency

On Thurday, March 19th a new District Presidency was called for the Georgetown Guyana District.

President Barrow has served tirelessly for the past six years as either a district president or counselor in the mission presidency. Prior to that he had only been a member of the church for three years.

The new presidency will build upon this great foundation as together they prepare Georgetown, Guyana to qualify for a stake later this year.

Here they are

Left to Right: President Yohann Pooran, First Counselor; President Colin Goodluck, District President; and President Dellon Murray, Second Counselor.

Yes they look young

They are!

But they are all returned missionaries - a first in a West Indies district presidency

President Goodluck, served in the West Indies as a missionary. He is married, has completed college, and he and his wife have one child
President Pooran also served in the West Indies, but with us until the mission was divided and he finished in the Puerto Rico, San Juan East Mission.
President Murray served in the Jamaica Mission, also in the Caribbean Area.

The presidency along with Brother Cardon McKenzie, the executive secretary, and also a returned Missionary from the West Indies, gathered for training with President Robison and President Hymas (counselor in the mission presidency living in Guyana)

Of course, behind every good man is an even better woman

Here is President Goodluck's beautiful wife and son. Sister Goodluck is from St. Lucia.
