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.

One night we came home very late and found that the tile floor in the living room of the mission home had "exploded." For some reason, it just pushed up from beneath. The mission home is built on sand. I think that they forgot the construction fundamental that "the wise man built his house upon the rock" and also forgot to anchor the foundation on the bedrock below the sand. So, the house shifts. A couple of weeks later the same thing happened upstairs in the master bedroom. This happened on November 11. After Christmas, FM showed up to fix it. In the meantime, we had one complete change of missionaries who did not come to the mission home for food. We went to restaurants with the new and the old. There was nowhere to put them in the house! And Christmas came and went. The bonus was that nobody had to put up the plastic Christmas Tree that someone else bought years ago. That was good.
