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.

So, our zone leader council went puro cholo for the unofficial photo. Cholo literally translates "dark-skinned" but the common use connotes a punk hanging out on a street corner looking and acting tough. Do we look pure tough? If I didn't know Elder Ávila, first on the left, I might think he was. But, he is one of the happiest, most kind and loving young men you will ever meet. Same for all those Mexican missionaries trying to look cholo. The Americans just look silly. Click on the picture.

The missionaries are Elders Ávila, Castillo, Redfern, Peralta, Selvas, Courtright, Espinoza, Haro, Lopez Pech, Cook, Melchor, Reidhead, Ahlstrom, Hyer, Dunn, Chase, Cano, Villalobos, and Amador.
