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.

Another zone activity, same week. We control our zone activities. They are all held on the fifth week of the 6-week transfer cycle and are approved by the mission president. We want them to enjoy themselves, but we don't want them to get into trouble, get hurt, or leave the boundaries of the zone or mission. The Veracruz South Zone played paintball. Here, they call that "Gotcha." You can get hurt doing that when they getcha. Bruising happens once in awhile. Sister missionaries are very competitive and deadly. Sisters Arciniega and Narciso, in the front, look sweet and they are. But, don't mess with them! I´ll try to list the names of the missionaries, left to right. First, the other sisters who opted out are Sisters Martinez, Anguiano, and Perez. Sister Martinez could getcha if she wanted to. The elders are Elder Garcia Gonzalez, Ramos, Ramirez Arambula, Bullock, Amador, Collins, Garcia O., Ramirez M., Parra, Castro, LeDosquet, Rodriguez Salinas, Johnson, Edgington, DeGroff, Cruz, and Campos Castillo.
