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.

Mom's nephew, Talmage Haines, was called to serve his mission in Monterrey East. His mission president is Alan Walker, the fellow on the left. He is a native Argentine who served his mission in Tennessee Knoxville Spanish. Then, he graduated from BYU, got married somewhere in there, and worked as the controller for the Mexico Area Office. Now, he has been in Monterrey since July 1. In 2 1/2 years he will look like the fellow on the right.

You're looking great! We were at the MTC with the Walker's, young! We've only been out 6 months and already want to extend as long as we can, wishful thinking! We love our mission! As you told us, it is the greatest thing. Thanks for your example. We think of you often - when we're not playing nurse, mother, wife, secretary, maid, teacher, confident, advisor, etc, etc.. Keep up the good work.
