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,
Pdte. y Hna. Pete and JoElla Hansen

We have talked a lot in our letters about the district, Los Tuxtla. One of our favorite places there is the priesthood group, Santiago Tuxtla. It is not yet a branch but we have applied with Salt Lake to create the branch and are awaiting word. These photos are of the group inside the rented casa de oración. One shows the rostrum and group leadership. The other is of most of the members and a couple of non-members (now baptized) who were there that day. The Spirit is wonderful and strong in these little gatherings. The work is progressing. They have had as many as 40 people in attendance recently.

Thanks President Hansen for your great blog! It's so wonderful to pop on it and see my missionary.(Elder Tyler Page). He really loves his mission, and is so grateful to you and Sister Hansen. He writes and expresses his appreciation for you both. Thanks for being such good examples to him. He is precious!
