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 man at the museum told us that we could go up onto the mesa but that it was not signed or marked. So, we did. We found, laying right on top of the ground, a piece of acqueduct just like those in the museum. Elder Hernandez is holding a stone which was cut to fit into the channel, possibly to serve as a dam or diversion for the water flow.

We also found this huge cut stone altar which Elder Collins tried on for size. The ground above it had been removed. It would have been located 2-3 feet underground when it was uncovered.
