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

Sight and Sound

My husband and I are putting up a flurry of blog posts today. You'd think we don't have anything to do! Actually our suitcases are packed and we are just looking at each other saying, "now what???"

Did you know that missionary companions are to stay within 'sight and sound' of each other all the times?

The Missionary Handbook says:

"Never be alone. It is extremely important that you stay with your companion at all times. Staying together means staying within sight and hearing of each other. The only times you should be separated from your assigned companion are when you are in an interview with the mission president, on a companion exchange, or in the bathroom."

That is a lot of together time!

How do they cope? I honestly don't know - but they do it.

I expect there are fun times and also a few challenges

Just like this:
