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.

We love the babies. That innocent, little smile. . . . They are just like kids, aren't they? Give them a little sand or dirt and a couple of old cans, and they are in heaven. Elder Norcross took this foto and the next at a beach baptism in Nautla, north of Veracruz about 2 hours. The second one is a bucket of little crabs they and the members caught. After the baptism they had a crab boil on the beach. These jaiva are really small, smaller than your hand, and are not worth the effort, unless you are hungry. (Click on the photo to enlarge it and really see the smile.)
