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.

Missionaries have traditions. Most are harmless. Some, at six months burn a tie. Others, at 12 months, burn a shirt. Not a bad idea. They tend to turn off-white here, kind of a very weak yellow. This one we hadn't heard of. Elder Bada of Lima, Perus is teaching his new missionary Elder LeDosquet from Kent, Washington his personal tradition of burning a pair of slacks at the 18 month mark.
