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.

Tuesday of Thanksgiving week, we held our Zone Leaders Council. Mom decided that she wanted to serve all 20 of them turkey dinner at the mission home. So she did, 24 people in all. Turkey, rolls, potatoes and gravy, punkin pie, very traditional. The biggest hit of all was stuffing. Most of the missionaries had never tasted it before. The literally licked the plate clean. The older couple on the left are Dr. and Sis. Scott. He is our Mexican Area missonary doctor. Elder Page (North Carolina), back of the table on the right, noted that he is the only güerro, white guy, in mission leadership at this level. I reminded him that Sis. Hansen and I are still güerros. We agreed that this is kind of neat and probably fairly unique.
