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.

Comes now the rainy season. You will notice that none of the missionaries are wearing raincoats or rainboots. Two reasons: 1) the rain comes down at 80 degrees plus (27 C o más) and 2) what good would they do? If you look closely you can see the current in the water.

Elders Chandler, Gardner, Linares, and Alvarez were in Carlos A. Carrillo this day, got soaked, and decided to enjoy it. You understand, don't you? Swimming is against mission rules

The flooding really does get this deep all over the mission, even in the chapel parking lot where Elders Gardner and Chandler stand.

Many hours and kilometers away in Xalapa, and three days difference in time, Elder Heinhold walked to an appointment with an umbrella. I guess he was trying to keep his powder dry.
