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 mission home was torn up because the tile floor "exploded." So, we had no room to feed all these missionaries. The next best option was to take them to a nice seafood restuarant at Boca del Rio where the Jamapa River empties into the Gulf of Mexico.

These shrimp that Sisters Narciso and Martinez are enjoying are wrapped in a piece of bacon, breaded and deep-fried. The beverage is horchata, rice milk with cinnamon sprinkled on top. Very good!
