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.

Sihuapan is a small branch of the Church in the Los Tuxtla District. There have been about 15 members attending with only one active male adult. The district president and I discussed reorganizing the branch presidency, as it were. On November 4th, we sent Elder Lopez B and Elder Bowen (Camarillo, CA) to preside, Elder Lopez as the president. They meet in a very nice casa de oración. The Sunday that they were installed Mom and I went down and attended there. The brethren are District Pres. Hernandez, Elder Bowen, former Branch President Cruz, and Elder Lopez. On December 13th there were 52 people in church including 8 adult males.
