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.

Con amor,
Pdte. y Hna. Pete and JoElla Hansen

Elders Erickson and Gonzalez are teaching the Xocua Family in the Ciudad Mendoza Ward. Xocua is a Mayan name. Johnny, the dad, had been heavily involved in a local gang. He was really touched by the power of the Book of Mormon and did a complete turnaround. After a special interview, he and his family were baptized. We saw them about six weeks later at the temple doing baptisms. True converts.

The second foto was taken inside the home of the fellowshipping family. The man of the house is second row, second from left and is first counselor in the Ciudad Mendoza Ward. To his left is his daughter who is now serving a mission.
