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

Sisters Cook

When we were in Guyana earlier this month, we stopped at the Rosignal branch for President Robison to interview the missionaries from that side of the river

Some of the beautiful sisters were gathered to prepare for the Relief Society birthday celebration

Doing what they do so well

Making delicious things to eat!

They were preparing seven curry - one of my favorite meals

Here is how the website GuyaneseCooking.com describes seven curry:

Seven curry are seven different vegetable curries served at the end of a religious hindu ceremony called a jhandi. They are traditionally pumpkin, bagee (spinach), catahar, potato/ channa (chick peas), balange (eggplant) and edoe, dahl and mango.

If you want to make West Indies returned missionaries happy - learn to cook curry

Rice is grown in guyana and eaten with most meals

Bagee (like spinach)

Balange (eggplant)

Fresh grated coconut

And of course - a big birthday cake!

Cute little helper

Priesthood at work
