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.

One of the daily goals our missionaries have accepted is to contact every "matrimonio" or married couple in their camino, or path. Here, just outside the Ojo de Agua chapel in Orizaba, Elder Israel Castillo and Elder Miguel Angel Rodriguez are doing just that. Not all matrimonios are married, but our missionaries are happy to help them get married and then baptize them. Ojo de Agua literally translates "Water Eye" but the phrase is used for "spring" as in "spring of water." There is a beautiful park with pools and springs of water just below the church property.
