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.

Erick Francisco Maza Aguirre is a young man from Isla in the Los Tuxtlas District. He was an interview back in July, 2008. He needed a little work to prepare for his missionary service and he really got serious about it. He finally received his call to serve in the Mexico Guadalajara South Mission. I set him apart for his missionary service in the president's office. An hour or so later he flew to the MTC in Mexico City. I learned an interesting story later. Around 1993 a missionary in Isla was attacked by a man with a machete. He was very severely wounded. A member named Bro. Maza saved his life. Ten days later, the missionary was back on the job. Bro. Maza's grandson is Elder Maza.
