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.

Oh man, we hate to see our missionaries go home. But, it is part of the plan of happiness, I suppose. Why, then, are we not so very happy? You have heard about missionaries riding their suitcases, right? Here is evidence. The missionaries who flew out that morning into the great beyond were Elders Godfrey, Bada (Peru), Chamorro(Argentina), Page, Ramirez, Valdez, De la Cruz, Eduardo, García García, Perez Segóvia, and Sisters Martinez and Narciso.

Great posts about your family's visit and the things you were able to go and see. I am sure Mason will have wonderful memories of visiting Grandma and Grandpa in Mexico and seeing first hand what mission life is like. Looks like you had the same challenge we did, trying to balance family time with the on-going beat of missionary responsibilities. Sorry about your tile explosion, but yeah for eating out with all those out-going missionaries instead of cooking. We just finished sending 10 home with honorable releases - with office staff and assistants that added up to 19 total for dinner. We just found out that our first transfer after the missions combine in July will have 20 new missionaries arriving on the same day! Yikes, I am DEFINITELY calling in for back-ups in kitchen duty and bed-changing!
