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.

On March 22nd, we went to San Andres in Los Tuxtlas and organized the Santiago Tuxtlas Branch by dividing it off of the San Andres Primero de Mayo Branch. This has been a long time coming. It was work well worth it. Pictured are the members of the new branch who made the trek to San Andres for the division. Pictured are the new branch president, on the left, and other leaders and missioanries. There are also 5 investigators in the picture, all of whom have now been baptized. The missionaries are Elders Page (Kernersville,NC, who served in Stgo Tuxtlas for 9 months) Castro, Collins (from Centerville, UT), and Rangel (who served in San Andres for many months).

Presidente, fue una experiencia tan bonita, ir a San Andrés en mi último domingo como misionero. Sólamente puedo agradecer a usted, por darme esa oportunidad tan valiosa. Gracias!
