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.

Con amor,
Pdte. y Hna. Pete and JoElla Hansen

Meanwhile, Elder Ricks spent the last few days of his mission not in the office as an assistant, but happily serving in Cazones (that spider place) with Elders Hernandez Martinez y Roberts. I think it is the dream of the assistants to just go out and work after a couple of months in the office. That is what we do now, giving them a couple of months or more to go be a trainer or some other position in the field.

The Cazones missionary house may have been the worst in the mission. Elder Roberts seems not to be worried, however. But, we were. They are now in a much more waterproof, if not all-around nicer, place.

I'm glad they moved into a new house. That night I stayed there, a kitten snuck in the get out of the poring rain and we cuddled all night on the cement floor. I woke up when it used my face as a litter box!
