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.

Elder Wray from Rigby, Idaho got into it with a monkey and lost. There is a man in Catemaco who has a couple of pet monkeys in cages. The missionaries like to stop by and check them out. Elder Wray had a pen in his pocket. The monkey took a liking to it and stole it from Elder Wray. The monkey started chewing on the pen. The missionary was not happy about that and reached into the cage to retrieve it. A tug-of-war ensued. The monkey knew a rule Elder Wray didn't--the bite-the-opponent-if-you-must-to-win rule. He bit Elder Wray on the pinkie as you can see. He went to a member's house. She heated up a clove of garlic in a frying pan of hot oil. Then, with tongs, she placed the hot garlic on the open wound. Bitemarks cauterized, the scar is now guaranteed. He also got his 25 cent pen back.
