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.

Con amor,

On August 8, 2009 the Veracruz South Zone hosted a "bauti-zona" at a beach near Anton Lizardo about 20 minutes downcoast from Veracruz. A bauti-zona is when every companionship in a zone baptizes on the same day. That was the plan. A couple of people cancelled at the last minute, but the service went on. People changed clothes in tents. There were lots of preliminary pictures taken including this one of Mom flanked by Sisters Vergara, Cua, Lopez, Narciso, Arciniega, and Martinez.

When everyone had changed, we gathered them together for a group foto. We call this todos en blanco, all in white.

We have a short service on the beach. Elders Bullock from Virginia, Edgington from Utah and Rojo from Mexico City are signing the opening song.

Then, everybody lined up to go into the Gulf of Mexico receive their baptisms.
