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 went to Mexico City on business. While there, we stayed at the Mexico East Mission Home with our friends, Pres. Russ Bulloch and Ellen. I served as Pres. Bulloch's counselor in the Cedar City University Third Stake Presidency, and Mom served as president of the stake Relief Society. Now, we are together in Mexico. Pretty fun for us. Their son, Ryan, was about to head off to his mission in Uruguay Montevideo in a couple of weeks. He is not yet 19, but mission president's sons are permitted to go at 18 if they desire. Ryan had a semester of BYU under his belt and now he was on the way. While in Mexico City we went to WalMart and Costco to buy some things we can't buy in Veracruz. We can't buy Frosted Mini Wheats here nor can we buy Caffiene Free Diet Coke. So, we filled up the back of the minivan with essential supplies before we came back to Veracruz.
