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.

The delivery was a new silk tie for all the elders. It is a cool Misión México Veracruz tie. We ordered them from an outfit in Mexico City. They were made in Korea and came to Mexico on boat. Then they were trucked to Mexico City, after which they were put on a bus for delivery to Veracruz. On the back they are labeled Mazzotti of Italy. So, for Christmas they got a genuine silk Italian tie made in Korea and purchased in Mexico. The smiling elders are Elders Kohlieber from Simi Valley, CA and Perez. The elders wear their mission ties in all zone and stake conferences.

The sisters received a scarf which was made locally and turned out really . . . ugly. The scarf, not the sisters. They are Hermanas Garza, Anguiano, y Samaniego. The sisters, to their credit, never wear their scarves.
