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.

The Mexico Area Presidency gifted us all with a wooden, hand-carved Olmec head. We love the Olmecs and their history. This is Elder Octaviano Tenorio, counselor to the area president and member of the First Quorum of the Seventy. He is orginally from Los Tuxtlas, one of the lands of the Olmec.

this is really cool.

Having seen the real Olmec heads...

is the wooden one as heavy?
