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.

On July 30th we bid farewell to some outstanding missionaries. Here they are standing in line trying to get through the red tape of getting on the plane. They are Elder Carmack, Sis Ramos, Elders Garza, Lopez Balderas, Sierra, Bangerter, Ling, and Hernandez.

In the second picture you can see that Elders Ling and Carmack are searching. Elder Carmack's family was in Veracruz and he could not keep his eyes of the doors just in case they showed up at the airport. They didn't, but it was a joyful reunion later at the mission office. Elder Carmack´s dad serves as his stake president. He released Elder Carmack from missionary service in the mission president's office and then they toured for a few days.
