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.

It is a great privilege to set apart a young man for full time missionary service. Both of these are from the Jardín Branch in the Los Tuxtlas District. The first is Elder Mario Alberto Moreno Gonzalez. He was called to serve in Monterey, Mexico. The second is Elder Helaman Cruz Gonzalez who was set apart to serve in the Guadalajara East Mission. They are outstanding young men. With their departure we have grown the number of young men from the district serving missions from one to twelve in the space of about 15 months.
