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.

This is an example of lower-level wisdom in action. Sometimes missionaries heat water in a bucket with a resistencia, the device on the left. The device on the right is called an iron. Sometimes the lower-level wisdom model is employed. When I saw the foto, which a missionary sent me, I called him and asked what the deal was. He said something like, "Oh, don't worry. A member gave the iron to me because it doesn't really work all the time. It is perfect for heating water." I get it. If an iron is shorting out, put it in water. Shocking!
