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,

Christmas is now over and it is back to work. On Saturday, December 27 we went up to Misantla to enjoy the baptism of two sisters. Elders Rodriguez from Coahuila, Mexico and Elder Carter from Bakersfield, California got into the Misantla River to move rocks around. They needed to establish a solid base for the converts to stand on. I guess this is okay if the president is watching. There is no baptismal font in the casa de oración in Misantla. The nearest font is an hour away, so we find a secluded spot on the river and use it. Yes, Sis. Carter, your son wore his suit pants into the river. Do they look happy?
