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 friend and assistant to the president, Elder Anaya, was running out of time and needed to return to his family and future in Jalisco, Guadalajara. We decided to have a going away dinner one Sunday evening. Elder Anaya knows how to make tortillas by hand and is instructing Mom and the other missionaries. After they are pounded out by hand, they are cooked on a flat plate grill. Very tasty. The third photo is Team Tortilla holding their handmade tortillas which are ready to cook-- Elders Bangerter (Hawaii, but his family moved to Mt. Pleasant, Utah since he came to Mexico), Anaya, Badillo, Castillo, Eduardo, and Reyes R. We had hot tortillas, homemade soup which was cooked by Elder Reyes, potatoes a la Amy Hansen, salad, and Costco steaks estilo abuelito Hansen, Grandpa Hansen style. Isn't Mom cute?
