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.

Pico Orizaba is an extinct volcano which marks the border between the Veracruz and Puebla Missions. It is the highest point in all of Mexico at over 19,000 feet. 70 miles due east lies the Gulf of Mexico--sea level. On his homeward flight, Elder Blanco was able to shoot this photo of Pico Orizaba as he left his mission. Click on the foto to really see the crater.
