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.

Elder Badillo is one of our office elders. His is in charge of recording baptism records, creating memberships, bar-coding temple recommends for all the members in the Los Tuxtla Mission District, and a million other things. He is a really energetic missionary. Here we see him with his pants rolled up because he had to wade into a baptismal font to get it ready to baptize a dad, mom, and daughter. He looks pretty good in the sombrero, huh? His English is very good and his desire is to attend BYU...probably without the sombrero.
