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 not that we dislike girlfriends of missionaries personally. But we surely do dislike the distraction and the heartbreak, the tears and worry when a missionary gets a Dear John or a wedding announcement. Some girls go about a ton overboard. For example: Suppose we had a missionary named Elder Fulano, which we don't. Some girls, more than one, have sent packages and/or letters with the name on the return address "Sister Fulano, address, SLC, etc." Sister Fulano??? Like they are married or something? Good grief! So, when a missionary receives a Dear John, we salve the wound with a brownie. If he determines to write a Dear Jane, we acknowledge that exceptionally bold act with two brownies at zone conference.

Elder Yebra not only wrote the Dear Jane, but basically insisted on reading it to the entire zone, much to their delight.

Then, Mom gave him his brownies.
