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,

This is the pizzarón or white board. This is where some of the most important work in mission administration gets done--transfers. Every missionary is on the board by foto with a record of where each has served and with whom. They are divided by zone and district. Some of the pictures are upside down because the missionary is being transferred. There are two indentical pizzarones--one in the president's office at the mission home and another in his office at the mission office. Most of the transfer pondering and praying is done at the mission home where there are less distractions.

President and Sister Hansen, the cutest missionary and I am SURE the sweetest on this board is Elder Tyler Page(I am his mother!). My husband and I love your blog, that I happened to stumble across. We are so very appreciative of your love and support of our son. He is precious!
