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

Missionaries have district class every Tuesday morning from 9 until 11 a.m. The first hour of district class in Veracruz is focused on principles from "Preach My Gospel" supported by doctrine from the scriptures. The second hour is dedicated to role plays of teaching situations. The office elders hold their class on Sunday afternoon from 4:30 until 6:30 because they are at work on Tuesday mornings. We returned from a run to the north of the mission and needed to leave some things at the office. Class was just ending. I talked with the assistants in the president's office and Hna. Hansen visited with a couple of the elders in the council room. After a few minutes she came into the president's office laughing and pulled me in to read what was on the whiteboard where class had been held.

Hna. Flores is a heckuva missionary. She is also a bit of a heartthrob for those who take off their blinders long enough to notice. That would be basically all the elders.

On the board the district leader has written a list of temptations which cause a missionary to lose focus. One of them copped out and admitted in front of everyone that Hna. Flores could be a source of personal unfocussment. We cracked up.

I know that unfocussment is not a word. I don't even know how to spell it. English is tricky sometimes.

I just reread this. I wrote "Hna. Hansen" instead of "Mom." Hopeless am I.
