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

New Elders of June

These new elders had quite a day today. (Left to right: Elders Evans, Beeson, Ence, Houchens, Morris, and Babbel)

It started with a hearty breakfast

After study, interviews and training in the office, they headed up to Fort George in Port of Spain where there is a fabulous view over the island of Trinidad.

The assistants along with Elder Barton and Elder Westover, shared a little about the history of the mission - they called it a mission of miracles. And they are right.

Don't they look ready to conquer the world?

Of course, they needed to eat again - this time doubles, a Trinidad favorite.

They handled the hot pepper sauce quite well.

Then off they went to find the elect of Trinidad. They did great work and then returned to the mission home in time for a stroll in the back yard, pictures, dinner and a devotional.

Can you tell which school this group loves? (hint - there's a 'Y' in the picture somewhere)

They are certainly not in Utah any more!

This is an impressive group of elders. I think they will have an tremendous impact on the mission for the next two years - starting tomorrow!
