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 Veracruz missionaries who went home early in the morning of 25 Feb 2010. They are Elders Parra, Garcia Gonzalez, Perkins (Boise), Estrada, Hnas. Sanchez y Guzman, Elders Gaytan, Hernandez Contreras, Johnson (Canada), Martinez Haro, Wray (Rigby, ID), Olvera, Rusk (Fla), Castro, and Davis (Cedar City, UT). As of this writing (23May10) Elder Estrada is engaged to a sister from our mission who went home in April, Elder Wray is engaged to a recent find. His old flame Dear Johned him when he had about 3 or 4 weeks left. Several have "friends," and two in this picture are dating seriously. I don't want to jinx them so they will remain unnamed.

Elders Ficiur, Wray, and Perkins sport their sombreros. I have a couple of really embarrassing pictures of Elder Ficuir bawling his eyes out. He did not want to leave his mission. But, he called Veracruz on Mother's Day and all is well.
