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.

Silverio and his family were found by Elder Reidhead for Taylor, AZ and Elder Gutierrez from New Mexico in the Santiago Tuxtla. They came to church every week and loved the teachings. They were baptized as a family, but Silverio could not be. He will have to wait for some time because he killed some people many years ago. He remains active in the Church as a non-member and looks ahead to the day when we can apply for a waiver of his status and be baptized. Actually, the tall man on the right is not related to Silverio and his family but was baptize the same day.
