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.

September 27 was a big day. The Veracruz South zone determined to have a "Bautizona" in the waters of the Gulf of Mexico. The idea was to prepare their converts for that day, gather at the Veracruz Temple and bus out to a secluded beach area about 45 minutes south of the city near the pueblo Antón Lizardo at an even more remote spot Mata de Uva. That translates grape tree or grape bush. Both of the buses contracted are owned by members of the Church. Elders Martinez, Reyes M., and Gonzales B. are ready to roll as soon as they get out from in front of the Mormon Bus.
