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.

We left Paraíso and headed back to Veracruz which is a solid 3.5 hours away. On the dirt road leading from Paraíso to the hard road, we passed this cement house. Electricity is very hard to come by. A very few people have generators when they are so far away from even a small town. Many just rely on sunlight. But this man, whom you can see sitting on his hammock, has solar panels! Now he can watch soccer all day long.
