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,

One of the great blessings of this calling is the occasional blessing of getting up close and personal with some of the fine people on the earth. Elder and Sister Bednar are two of those. On 25 June we had dinner with them and six other mission president couples headed to Mexico. Elder Bednar shared some thoughts and then turned to us to say a few brief words if we chose to. This was a once in a lifetime experience for us.
