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 little lady is the pillar of the Baxcaxbaltepec Branch in the Los Tuxtlas Distrct. That is a dialect word for Cerro de las Iguanas which means Iguana Hill. Her name is Pilar which translates pillar. Maria del Pilar Meso Atono is 80 years old. She was baptized 2 years ago. She walks 3 kilometers each way to church and never misses. She is marvelous. My privilege was to interview her to enter the temple and receive the endowment which she did right after this picture was taken. Marvelous.

The missionaries are Elders Gutierrez Cadena and Hernandez Contreras.

No wonder she looks so well! Walking to church is good exercise in more ways than one. What a wonderful day for this good sister.
