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,

San Cristobal is a humble place. They don't use much money because they raise their own chickens and turkeys and some vegetables. Horses walk around town. There are no paved roads. There are one or two street lights. We hear that there is a telephone in town somewhere. There is no internet service. Most people draw water from wells to cook, wash, and flush toilets. Some have outhouses. There is cell phone service in one or two higher points in town, but you can't move your head or you will lose the signal. We sent missionaries on December 30th. The first meeting was January 4th. The missionaries, Elders Hunter and Edgington, had worked hard all week. They invited lots of people. 38 members were there. 9 investigators were there. They have 19 new investigators. First week. The Principle of Proximity . . .
