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.

Our very first night in Veracruz, 27Jun2008, was spent in a Holiday Inn. The local Church FM group had been remodeling the mission home for months. They were not ready for us. But, we showed up anyhow. Pres. Johnson told FM that they were paying for our hotel and magically, they were finished the next day. This is a view from our hotel window. Not bad, huh? The bed would have made the Flintstones really happy; like solid rock. . . bedrock, maybe?
