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.

January 4th marks the end of the annual Christmas celebration in Mexico. The drinking begins December 12th with the celebration of the Virgin of Guadalupe and ends on the traditional day of the arrival of the wisemen from the east who visited the Christchild. On this day there is also a celebratory cake called La Rosca. At their district class, these missionaries ate it up. They are Sisters Anguiano, Samaniego, and Garza and Elders Miskin, Johnson, Diaz, Haro, and Castro.
