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

It's not goodbye

One of the elders just called all sad to say goodbye. I told him - "We are not leaving the earth, we are just leaving the mission!" We laughed. But it's true. We look forward to great times ahead with the WIRMs and their families. Please stay in touch.

I was going to post details about our 'homecoming' talks today, but I still need to figure out how to get a map to our house and church from google earth - I'll do that with my good sons' coaching in a day or two. I also have some fun missionary pictures that I still plan to post so you might want to check back on this blog every once and a while. I will put good links to the new mission blog in a few days.

So - here is one last slideshow of favorite images from our three years in the West Indies Mission. It's inspired by Oliver Cowdery's words on p 58 of the Pearl of Great Price,

"These were days never to be forgotten..."

Thank you for sharing all of these amazing stories, pictures and video clips of the missionaries and members on this blog. The West Indies Mission is just awesome!!! We are so glad that our son is serving in this mission. He loves it and he wrote us several time how much he loves you. Thanks again for all the hard work, leadership and example.

Thank you for this touching video. My brother just arrived in the mission (Elder Beeson). I also realized that President Robison was our Stake President in my BYU married ward when my husband and I were newlyweds. Small world. Thanks for doing this blog - it is so neat to see what is going on and invites the Spirit so strongly.

We love all of your videos. Who is the artist of the song, God Be With You, on the "These were days never to be forgotten" video?
