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 - April 28

Scriptures, planners, and the teaching record - essential tools for successful missionaries

We had a little break in our zone conference tour while President Robison attended some training meetings.

Now we are back at work

The Island zone conference in St Lucia yesterday was fabulous. Those elders were ready to learn!

I love it when the missionaries ask lots of questions - especially hard ones that I can't answer.

I also love it when I am the one that does the most learning.

That happened yesterday thanks to the questions and comments of the missionaries and Marlon - a wonderful prospective missionary.

Here are those great elders at work:
