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 came home one afternoon to find Veracruz' finest rounding up some young dope-smokers in the park across the street from the mission home. Good job boys!

When people get arrested here they toss them in the back of a peekup. The police trucks normally have two officers in the cab and four in the back, all carrying M-16's, fully automatic, or shotguns. You can see one of those in the hands of a couple of the officers. When there is a police action, lots of backup shows up. One does not want to mess with these guys. The guns are loaded.
