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.

This is the generation of new missionaries, 21 February 2010, and their trainers. We received 2 Mexican sisters, 10 Mexican elders, and 1 Honduran elder in the morning. In the evening we received 5 gringos--well, five from America. One is Tongan-American and one is Samoan who doesn´t really speak English well. He has lived in Sacramento for 2 years. Before that, he was in the islands. So, he translates from Spanish to English to Samoan and back. What a fine missionary. If he can grasp the language, any of them, he will be among the very best. He is back row, left near the palm tree in between a little white Utahn and a big Mexican with his eyes closed.

Don't get out the calculator. That totals 18 new missionaries.

You look tall in this one, too, Dad. And, Mom, you look beautiful, as always. Looks like a great group!
