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.

The August 9, 2010 generation of Mexcian missionaries arrived right on time. Elder Matadama helps them with their luggage as they leave the airport. They are Elders Gil, Flores, Gonzalez Pescador (which means Gonzalez Fisherman, unless you leave out the "s" and then is means Sinner), and Jáugeri. Elder Flores' dad and mom are friends who were released in July having served for three years presiding over the Chihuahua Mission.

The next day they were trained, met their trainers, and went off to their new areas of assignment.
