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.

Elder Carter and baseball again . . . He took his Veracruz zone to a baseball field and played volley/baseball for a zone activity. They used a volleyball for the baseball. Everyone could hit it and no one got hurt. We went and watched for awhile. It was really fun. The quote on the wall is from Ty Cobb, famous old-time outfielder for the Detroit Tigers (1905-1928) and it says, "I have to be first, everytime, in everything." That is kind of how Elder Carter is.

The missionaries are Elders Lozano, Camacho, Petersen, Stewart, García Flores, Montelón, Teisina, Butler, Lopez Pech, Ruiz, Quintanar, Gutierrez Cadena, Villalobos, Heinhold and Sisters Garza, Cueto, Frausto, Pech, and Flores.

Maybe if I played baseball with a volleyball, I'd have better luck.
