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.

Teziutlán is in the top of the mission, way north and west. It is the in state of Puebla. The town has a very unique feel to it, almost like Peru. I guess it feels like Peru. Í've never been there. Teziutlán is mountainous, cold, beautiful, rainy, and foggy except when the sun shines. Then the air is still nice, rarely hot and the skies are vey blue. Most of the people are short. They look and talk differently than in the coastal and lowland regions of the mission. They dress differently--much more "rural," serapes and ponchos, many women wear hats. We love to go there. So do the missionaries. The work is very good. This is a bauti-strito, kind of a fun word we invented which indicates that all companionships baptized in the same week. Here, then, is that district of missionaries with their baptismal candidates, family members, and ward members. The elders are Vazquez, Samayoa, Gardner (San Antonio), Chan, Muñoz, and Callaway (Big Foot, Montana).
