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,

Our missionaries do not have cars. They walk. Sometimes they ride buses, but mostly they walk. There are not bicycle missionaries in Mexico. It is too dangerous and we can't afford to replace "missing" bikes. These are the shoes, and pant cuffs, of Elder Sanchez Urban who was serving at the time in Tierra Blanca. Our best missionaries want to wear out their shoes in the service of the Lord.
