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.

The first photo touches us because of one of the missionaries who are in it. Elder Merrill is flanked by Elder Alonso and Elder Jaime. Elder Merrill had to go home early because of illness. That is really hard for everyone when it happens. But, he left baptizing. The second is a wonderful family. She needed a special interview. He is rock solid. Mom wanted to take the baby home with us. I am pretty sure that is against mission rules. The missionaries are Elders Alonso and Parra. To get a closer look at the baby's curly hair, click on the foto to enlarge it.
