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.

Driving along the highway we saw in the distance a town, Cuetzalan. It is a pretty good-sized community compared to tiny Yohualichan. We found our way over there primarily because we wanted to see the huge church you can see in the picture. It seemed so odd that such a large and ornate church would exist in such a very remote area. The town center is the church.

In front is a tall and ancient tree which was brought in for the voladores to climb up and swing from upside down, suspended from the top by ropes. It is a crazy event to watch on a metal pole, but on this dead old pine? No thanks!
