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

Future of this Blog

I thought I'd do a little blog housekeeping and summarizing these last few days before going home. The new elders are out converting the island of Trinidad right now. I'll post pictures of them tonight.

Here's what I think will happen with West Indies mission blogging.

This blog is staying with me and will shift to a returned missionary focus and perhaps a look back at some fun pictures I never had time to organize and post. I would also love to take note of and record the ongoing impact of the West Indies mission in the lives of members, senior couples and young elders.

The last time I checked, President Gamiette said he wants to keep a West Indies Mission blog going. Sister Palmer, serving with her husband here in Trinidad, is prepared to help keep it up to date. So we set up a new blog at:

thewestindiesmission@blogspot.com

I will add plenty of information and links to the new blog before we leave.

I will certainly miss taking and sharing pictures of the amazing West Indies Missionaries. There is a special spirit (and look) about missionaries who are obedient and fully engaged in the work of the Lord. As Oliver Cowdery said, "These are days never to be forgotten."

Sister Robison,

Our family thanks you from the bottom of our hearts for all the work you have done. While it is wonderful to follow our son and the other missionaries, more importantly this blog has inspired hundreds to do more in gathering Israel. We send you hearty "Hurrah for Iasrael".

Thank you, thank you, thank you with many hugs for this wonderful blog. It has made the transition for a new missionary mom so much eaiser. I know you and Pres Robison have made a huge impact on my son, and he will always remember your teachings. I'm sure your family is ready for you to come home and be the local grandma and grandpa! Have a safe trip home!
