Actually, it is not for 1000 days. It is just that 3 years times 365 days plus June 27 through June 30, 2008 equals 1098 days, and that is way too cumbersome to convert into a blog headline. Futhermore, our release date will not be determined until May or June of 2011. Therefore, 1000 Days sounded just about right, more or less. Having noted all that, we are humbled and thrilled (Pres. Uchtdorf would refer to the feeling as "joyfully overwhelmed") about having this marvelous opportunity to serve in La Mision Mexico Veracruz.

Ahhhhh.....Henry´s Restaurante in Tierra Blanca. This was our first real dining experience in real Mexico. Tierra Blanca has a nickname, La Novia del Sol. That translates the Girlfriend of the Sun. It is so hot there! We had been to a Meet the Mew President Conference and were ready for food. The assistants, Elders Anaya and Castillo spotted a little restaurant. We went in and ordered the best food we had tasted in a long time. The elders both ordered pollo asado, chicken cooked on a flat plate grill. I ordered fried mojarra. We had heard about mojarra from many people. It is very common, lives in rivers, lakes, and the sea. You can see that they scale it, clean it, and fry it. Mom won. She took a chance and ordered enchildadas suiza. They are the best. This total meal including a large pitcher of jamaica drink and a bottle of water cost $240 pesos or about $20.80 American. We make excuses to eat at Henry´s whenever we can.
