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.

In La Venta there is a small convenience store where they sell abarrotes, which are groceries and hardware but mostly groceries. The store is called El Mormón. So, we stopped into El Mormón with Mormon missionaries Minetto (Tigard, OR) and Sanchez U. They knew the owners who are active members of the branch. A young man greeted us, about 17 years old. I asked him where the beer was. He exclaimed, "Oh no! We don't sell beer here!" So we bought soft drinks and cookies. Click on the photo to enlarge it.
