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

Church in Grenada

We were in Grenada last weekend and I just now found time to upload some photos.

The church building there is in the most beautiful location in the entire mission.

It looks over gorgeous Grand Anse Beach

Here's a little tour:

Just outside the entrance - a nice big wrap around porch

In front - a basketball hoop of course - with an informative 'grass sculpture' underneath

Around the side, a view of the couple's and elders' apartment building (also looking over the gorgeous beach)

Now, around back

to the gate to the baptismal 'font'

and just a few steps down the hill and over some rocks, to the perfect spot to enter the waters of baptism

While we were there (actually the purpose for going), a new branch presidency was sustained:

Branch President - Angus Bonard Francis
First Counselor Matthew Noel Gellizeau
Second Counselor Mathew Charles Hatler

After church we had dinner at Elder and Sister Rasmussen's apartment next door along with new President Francis

and Elders Sarager and Owens

Showing they are the kind of missionaries their moms hoped they would be

Two fine missionaries
