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.

Sometimes it really rains here. This was on Saturday morning, the 24th of July. We had a breakfast meeting with the zone leaders, Elders Selvas y Courtright, in our hotel in Poza Rica. Afterwards, we gave them a ride to their area. We stopped on the road. The rain was coming down like buckets emptying all at once. We commented that they needed to be careful not to drown. All of a sudden one of them yelled, "That doesn't matter! We have an appointment to go and invite a family to get baptized"--and away they went.
