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.

On Halloween night a lady knocked at the door. She had a large bag of candy in her hand. She asked us to give it to a group of children who would be coming by to Trick or Treat. We told her that we had candy. She exclaimed that she had such fond memories of her childhood, knocking on doors and receiving lots of candy. We repeated that we were well prepared and had candy. She again said that she didn't want the children to be disappointed. We told her that we were Americans and that we understood. She said, "Oh!" turned on her heel, took her candy and left. About five minutes later we were invaded by about 30 kids all in their costumes, all happy to receive American candy from Costco.
