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 Teisina came here from Salt Lake and was assigned to work with Elder Gil Jimenez in Teziutlán. Part of their area includes the San Juan Xuitetelco Ward. This young man, aged 14, was baptized on a Friday evening after zone conference. He is of a part member family. It is always a little nervous when our missionaries sing, but they love to do it and most of the members don't seem to know the difference. These four, Elders Collins, Ricks, Gil, and Teisina did a very nice job of "I Know that My Redeemer Lives," unaccompanied. After the baptismal service the members had a big feast of real Mexican food. We left.
