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 received a request from some sister missionaries to see if the Book of Mormon might be available in Spanish Braille. We found that is is available, the newest edition being 1992 with selections originally in 1875. We bought three copies, knowing that we had two blind investigators at the time. They cost, are you ready for this?---42 pesos a copy. On today's exchange rate that is $3.15 American. The Book of Mormon comes in four binders. Amazing.

This is one of the brethren who received the Braille (Spanish) Book of Mormon. That baptism, in a place called Tres Valles, included an alcoholic, a blind man, and a young boy. The missionaries are Elder Decker from Pleasant View, UT and Elder Estrada.
