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.

Outside the museuem at Tres Zapotes is this beautiful flowering tree. Inside is a magnificent Olmec head which is 3000-4000 years old. It was found about 2 kilometers away. Note the old photograph above the artifact. It is a picture of the crew excavating the dig site many years ago. There are still a number of small pyramidal hills and other monticulos, mounds surrounded by cane and corn fields. Tres Zapotes is on the "backside" or the west side of the Hill Vigía. On the frontside is the town, Santiago Tuxtlas. At this moment in time we had three assistants, Elders Yebra, Ricks, and Amador. Elder Yebra was being schooled to go to the Villahermosa Mission as an assistant.

I love the red tree and the pink and blue houses and the green grass. Mexico is so colorful.
