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.

The missionaries' last evening in the field is spent at the mission home for dinner and then they go to a temple session. The temple is only 5 minutes from the mission home. This time, however, the temple was closed for cleaning. So, Pres. and Sis. Bickmore did us a huge favor. They allowed this generation to put on their white clothing and go into an endowment room where they were allowed to ask questions and receive some thoughts from the Bickmore's. After that, we were ushered into an endowment room where more instuction was given. Finally, we went into the Celestial Room where the missionaries were invited to ponder and reflect for a few minutes. It was very unique and highly spiritual. The elders are Ricks, Rodriguez T., Lopez F., Martinez, Medina, Díaz, Esquer, Norcross, and Collins.
