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.

We have a couple of banana trees in the back yard of the mission home. In August of our first year we harvested. Last year nothing happened. But in very early June of 2010, this is what started to happen.

A couple of days later the little flowers were a bunch of bananas all "stuck together" or not yet separated into individual bananas. This is a good picture to click on for a closer look.

After one full week, they looked like this.

And then this.

One morning, it was August 6th only two months from the beginning, we got up to go to work and both trees were bent to the ground. So, we harvested.
