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 continued going south to visit missionaries and inspect apartments, replacing bad mattresses and bedframes so that the new mission president would not have to fuss with all that.

Elder Castro and Elder Preston from Santa Rosa, CA worked together in the Coatzacoalcos Ward.

Elders Decker from Utah, Chan, Kohlieber from Simi Valley CA, and Luna de Leon live in the same house in Minatitlán.

On the other side of Minatitlán are Elder Fast from Lancaster, CA and Elder Gil Salamanca. They are holding open the bathroom door of their apartment.

In San Andres Tuxtla, Elder Elrey from Tucson, Elder Gumeta, Elder Bowen of Draper, UT, Elder Moeller, Tucson, and Elder Rosales. They are all about the same height as you will note.

Elder Sierra, Elder Watts from Sandy UT, and Elder Sifuentes were zone leaders in Coatzacoalcos.

Elder Robinson from Hooper, UT and Elder Weaver from Odgen which is near Hooper, were companions in Acayucan. They live above a lady who collects puppies from ranchos and sells them. There must have been 20 of them in the enclosed cement-floored entry area to the apartment. Were it not for the incessant barking and odor, you would hardly know the dogs were there.

We are going to miss these missionaries.
