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.

Luz del Carmen Aguirre Vergara was taught by missionaries a year ago in Coatzacoalcos. Not having a testimony, she declined baptism. A year later Acayucan Elders Tovar and Castro were walking in their area when a man hollered at them to come teach his wife who was ready to be baptized. The man was inactive but still wanted his wife to join the Church. So, they taught her. This time it took. On December 19, 2008, the couple was married. On the 20th in her special interview, she told me that she wanted to be sealed in the temple the next day! She wept with joy all the way through the interview. She was baptized that afternoon. Click on the foto to see her wonderful smile.
