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.

The first foto is of a multi-zone conference in a very typical LDS church in Mexico. The missionaries are all sitting in the chapel and back into the overflow. The cultural hall is behind them. The floors are tile. There are no pews. Chairs are set up in rows or moved to accomodate making the entire building multi-purpose. The second foto is a favorite and one which Mom took. One of our buildings, the Mocambo Stake Center adjacent to the temple, has carpet and pews. But, the pews are not attached to the floor and are moved around as needed. The foto shows us that zone conference is over. Suit coats have been removed. The missionaries are all in the cultural hall eating lunch provided by Hermana Costco and is shown in the third shot.
