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,

Over two months before this picture was taken, the mom in this family contacted the missionaries on the street. She was looking for religion and help and knew that true religion would save her and her family. The missionaries responded quickly. The entire family received the teachings very well. A month later, I interviewed her husband. He and his children were baptized. She refused baptism even though she was the one who was originally looking for it. Finally, a month later, she was ready and I interviewed Hna. Fernandez in one of the craziest interviews ever in the history of the world, I'll bet. I can't write it. You wouldn't believe it. But, I'll tell you about it sometime. The very patient and persistent missonaries are Elder Castro and Collins. Complete family baptized, marriage saved, now working toward the temple.
