Called To Serve: West Indies Mission

Dustin's mission call came this morning while he was at work. The time finally came where Family and Friends gathered to hear where Dustin would be serving.
Dustin handed the letter to my sister to open and get it all arranged so that Dustin could read it line by line.
Dear Elder Peterson:
You are hereby called to serve as a missionary of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. You are assigned to labor in the West Indies Mission. In addition to your calling to share the gospel, you will be assigned to serve in the Guadeloupe Mission Region.
His Mission Call!!
So the West Indies huh? Where the heck is that? Though no one seemed to know where the West Indies were located, we were all very excited! When we found out that it was in the Caribbean we were INCREDIBLY EXCITED—especially Dustin. Yes we had to pull out the globe and find it.

Congratulations Dustin!!
The West Indies is a large group of islands that separate the Caribbean Sea from the Atlantic Ocean Today the West Indies, better know as the Caribbean, is comprised of many island countries, dependencies and territories, and (as a group) remain one of the premier tourist destinations on the planet.
