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 mission continues to progress. Two new branches of the Church were formally organized on Sept 12, 2010 by the Veracruz Mocambo Stake. They are both about 15 minutes away from the Verzcruz Temple, but are different directions at a "Y" in the road. If you want to go to church in a building which is not a chapel, Yogi Berra's axiom would work perfectly here, "When you come to a fork in the road, take it." The first missionaries to officially serve in the Anton Lizardo Branch are Elders Ramos, Lozano, and Salas.

The first missionaries to serve in the Paso del Toro Branch are Elders De Jesus and Dominguez.
