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.

Elder Espinosa and his companion helped a couple get married a couple of days before the bauti-zona. Their 15 year old daughter was baptized the week before. In this picture, Elder Espinosa (a convert of 18 months before he came to the mission) is instructing the sister on how he will perform the ordinance. Most of our wards don't have baptismal jumpsuits so the missionaries ask the investigators to bring white clothing. They all have some.

After her baptism, the sister was kissed on the head by her husband who was then baptized. The other missionaries, Elders Contreras and Hernandez are the witnesses.
