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.

This is one of our favorite baptismal pictures. Elder Moeller, who is from Tucson, and his companion, Elder Villanueva who used to work in the mission office, found this young man in a part-member family. They taught him the gospel and reactivated the family in the process in the pueblo, San Pedro. The little boy is looking up into the eyes of Elder Moeller, who is about 6'3", with trust and love. (Note: There are alligators in this lake.)
