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,

These are two brothers that the elders found in the first week in Sihuapan. They are members, aged 14 and 15. They have never been active but came to church when the missionaries "went after them." Within a couple of weeks, both were ordained to the Aaronic Priesthood.

Mom is standing with some of the very active sisters of the Sihuapan Branch. The younger one to her right, Margarita, is not a member but goes to church every week with her little boy and mother-in-law who is on the right. She and her husband will be baptized after they are married which will hopefully be in a few weeks.
