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.

Elder Chase from Plain City, UT and Elder Lopez Pech from Mexico City served as zone leaders in Tuxpam, the northernmost zone of the mission. They are standing on the bridge which crosses the wide and beautiful Tuxpam River a couple miles before it dumps into the Gulf of Mexico.

Elder Lopez stands in the road, ankle deep in water after a summer rainstorm. He really isn't posing. That is how our missionaries have to get around in the colonias after heavy rains. Why isn't he wearing rain boots? Fungus grows in steamy, humidity filled boots and flourishes on missionary skin.
