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.

Every few months, like every three or four, we have a meeting called the Coordinating Council. It is a killer meeting, meaning it kills your body to sit there for 8 to 10 hours. No kidding, the meeting is always that long. The Area Seventy is in charge. The mission president must also be there. All the stake presidents in the mission are supposed to attend and the temple president usually comes for awhile. I had this picture taken thinking that it might be the last one of us together in this mission. All 14 stake presidents and the Los Tuxtlas District president were there. I would name them all but you might be bored with that. Okay here they are, if you insist. Back row: Pres. Hernandez, Tuxtepec Stake; Romay, Acayucan; Hurtado, Teziutlán; Temple President Bickmore; Solana, Veracruz Mocambo; Velasquez, Xalapa; su servidor; Hernandez, Los Tuxtlas; Gallegos, Tierra Blanca. Front row: Pres. Flores, Coatzacoalcos Puerto; Rojas, Minatitlán México; Hernandez, Coatza México; Mata, Mina Tecnológico; Area Seventy Raymundo Morales; Canaan, Orizaba; Ramos, VC Villa Rica; Meza, VC México (son-in-law of Pres. Ramos to his right); Bravo, VC Reforma.

I like Mexicans. They make me feel tall.
