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.

Stake conference in Minatitlán. We were met at the door by these handsome little guys. They were all ready to sing in the choir. Lots of things here are like performances. Exactly like performances--very fancy and dramatic. The choir was seated. The stake presidency and guests were seated on the stand. The presiding Seventy was seated. The congregation was visiting loudly. Suddenly, the door were flung open and in marched the children's choir, including these future missionaries.

The choirs here always dress up for conference. Elder David Brown of the Fourth Quorum of the Seventy was the visitor. He is from Colonia Juarez. He didn't sing in the choir, but he surely loved them.
