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.

When it rains here, it does rain. Las Choapas is way south in the mission and sits on the border of the state of Chiapas. Last year the town seriously flooded in October. This year it waited until November. The missionaries were isolated there for awhile because all the bridges were flooded over. There were able to walk in most parts of the town, but sometimes a lancha was the only option.

You can see that the water in the streets is not very deep, only up to the knees, but it still flooded many homes. The elders live in a second floor apartment (by mandate) and were never in danger. All was well. The elders baptized four people in November--in the font in the chapel. The missionaries are Elders Medina and Curiel.
