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.

Elder Chacacanta is a Peruvian missionary. He is the only member in his family, 26 years old, youngest of 17 (I think), and a great little missionary. He got a lot done in his two years. In the photo is a baptismal service on February 6th. Actually, two of the people in white were baptized. The little handicapped girl was not baptized--no need. But, the family dressed her in white so that she could feel that she was part of the deal. Elder Chacacanta is the missionary on the right. Elder Davis from Cedar City is the tall blond missionary in the back. On Feb 13th, three more of the people in the picture were baptized. This week or next, a family of three, also in the picture (the man in the back with glasses, his wife to his left and their daughter in front of them) will also take their baptism. They just have to work through that annoying "We need to get married first" problem. Rules, huh?
The other missionaries are Elder Meza and Lázaro.
