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.

Christmas zone conferences came. The Veracruz North Zone scripted a Luke 2 presentation. In the first picture, Elder Gonzalez Poot (pronounced Pote) arrived representing some of the shepherds. They had good glasses in those days. Mom, playing Mary and holding a real live plastic doll, had a very difficult time being reverent. That is a consistent and recurring problem with her.

The producer of the skit selected a choir and had those missionaries who could not sing in the play, and those who theoretically could in the choir. Good in theory, but it really didn't work very well. They were sufficiently loud, though.

Elder De Los Santos (translated, Elder Of the Saints)is a non-Mormon angel as evidenced by the wings.

The visiting kings are Elders Davis (Cedar City), Chacacanta (Peru), and Bowen (Draper, UT) all hailing from points east of somewhere.

That looks like it was a lot of fun. I would have a hard time being reverent, too.
