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,

Remember the Bravo Family from earlier in the blog? This is the baptism day of the mom. I had the chance to confirm her a member of the Church. She speaks Mazateco, so I did it in Spanish and phrase by phrase, the Relief Society President translated it into Mazateco. It was quite an experience. We need to start teaching our baptismal candidates to smile for the camera. The missionaries are Elders Martinez J and Davis (Cedar City, UT).
