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 ruins, as you can see, were impressive. They were built by the Totonaca in about 400 A.D. The Totonaca were there between 400 and 800 A.D. This same people built El Tajín and the world famous Pyramids of the Sun and the Moon of Teotihuacán at Mexico City. The Toltecs attacked Yohualichan in 800 and ruled there until about 1200 A.D. Then the Nahua overthrew the Toltec at this site. They still live there. Everyone in the town speaks Nahua and many also speak Spanish, especially the younger people.
