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.

Look at this!

In Tihuatlán they had a service set for 6 pm. There is no font there because there is no chapel and they use a member's swimming pool--that would be the above ground variety. There is no river or ocean nearby. At 2, the member called and said that they were leaving town and the pool was not available. The elders panicked for a second and then went to work. They found out that the branch has a portable font. They set it up but there is never water in the church. Bucket at a time? Missionaries have filled fonts in churches that way. No, they called for a water truck. Mexico has water trucks that drive around and pump large quantities of water into the large containers. This fill-up cost 70 pesos. Good job. Worth the 5 bucks. The missionaries are Elders Petersen and Hernandez Nieva.
