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.

These pictures of missionaries working give you a small insight into daily activity. In this one Elderes Gutierrez L., Orozco, Kohlieber (from Simi Valley, CA), and Rosales R. are walking to a baptismal interview in the very dusty town, José Cardel, which is about 20 minutes north of Veracruz. When it is not dusty, it is muddy. Not many options in Cardel. The missionaries stopped along the way for an ice cream. The temperature was over 90 this May afternoon.

Later that day we were in Veracruz and came upon Elders Hernandez Loyola and Yebra contacting a lady on the street. Missionaries are supposed to contact 140 people a week just like they are doing here. When they do that, they are blessed. Good things just seem to happen when missionaries are obedient.

Thank you for your blog. How fun it is to find this and get on and see what is going on in the mission and see pictures of the area. It is neat to get to know a little more of you and Pres. Hansen. We are so blessed to have our son Elder Braden Berrett serving there. He is in Poza Rica right now but tells us he will probably be up for a transfer soon. He is loving his mission and is feeling much success. We are looking forward to seeing more news. Helen Berrett
