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.

We have another branch of the district in the pueblito, Baxcaxpaltepec, a Mayan word meaning Cerro de las Iguanas of Hill of the Iguanas. This is a very beautiful hilly area, heavily forested with huge mango trees. The branch had just dismissed from services as we drove into town, so we stopped to take their picture. It seems that an unusually high percentage of the population of the people in this country have experienced an amputation. We are not sure why. Nonetheless, you can see that this is a happy group. We all are happy to get out of three hours of church, true? We saw no iguanas that day. Click on the photo to enlarge.
