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.

Con amor,
Pdte. y Hna. Pete and JoElla Hansen

Our missionaries constantly help people get married. Elder Gil and Elder Robertson stand with this couple outside the Registro Civil in Teziutlán. We have heard of rates to marry ranging from 1900 pesos to 39 pesos. Why the difference? It may be that there are certain, uh, extra charges to expedite or overlook inaccuracies in records. I am not accusing or judging. That is what the locals say. This couple is holding their marriage certificate. Now they can get baptized.

So, she was.
