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.

I love this picture of Mom with Elders Blanco and Sanchez. We are in downtown Minatitlán only days before Christmas. Mom saw some clothes she wanted to buy for the granddaughters, so we stopped. The elders helped her negotiate a deal. She was so happy! The second foto is of street vendors selling plastic Santa Clauses climbing a ladder. Guess where they were made. The box said, "Made in China." Doesn't that lady look full of Christmas cheer?
