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 finally had to go home on July 21st. It was a difficult moment. He went home two days ahead of others of his generation, Elders Brandt, Larsen, Watts, Moyar, Moeller, Minetto, and Menet. They would all haved stayed for another 2 years if it had it been possible. They already extended for four weeks, as long as we could stretch it.

Elder Carter and Elder Minetto had a friendly competition. They were both zone leaders in Veracruz. Each had one side of town. When monthly stats were compiled, he who lost had to put on this dress for a photo op. Don't worry. Putting on a dress was all good, clean fun . . . I am almost sure of that.
