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.

Sis. Ramos was one of our most successful sister missionaries. At the end of her mission, someone gave her a turtle. They are illegal to possess without a license--protected species. She returned from the temple the last night of her mission. She stayed in the mission home. Sheepishly, she came out of her room and said,"I can't find my turtle." Turtle??? We didn't know she had it. Thankful we are that she found it.

She packed it in damp toilet paper, put it in her purse, and carried it onto the airplane. Yes, her purse went through the X-ray machine. Either security didn't notice it or they are used to seeing bones in purses.
