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

Wednesday in Canje Guyana

Canje is sort of the 'frontier' of the mission. It's two hours away from Georgetown, the capitol of Guyana, and in a separate district. Living conditions are often challenging but the missionaries love it because they can always find wonderful people to teach and many are joining the church.

It takes great planning expertise to manage the rapid pace of the work

So here are the Canje elders - upping their planning skills in zone conference

Take a close look at the Canje and Berbice 'band of brothers'

Elders Duncan, Palmer, Risenmay and Manwill (brand new)

Elders Sorber, Lundberg, Huntsman and Peterson (brand new)

Elders Bowens, Jordan, Warhurst and Jestice

Elders Gaddy (brand new), Ritchey, Coronado and Scott

Elders Palmer and a prospective missionary plus Elders Welch, Willams, and Falatau
