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 got a surprise email, not phone call, from Perú. It said that an Elder Salas was coming in on Saturday night, September 4th. Elder Salas was a visa-waiter. He was scheduled to come in at 6 p.m. I had another important event scheduled at that exact time--the kickoff of the BYU football season which I intended to catch on KSL Radio via the internet. Plans ruined, but the game wasn't. We beat Washington.

In the photo, Elder Holman sits by me while I try to find the score and updates on the Blackberry.

The plane was delayed--good grief--until I-don't-remember-when o'clock. Elders Amador, Canseco, Holman, Redfern, and De Jesus passed out. Just kidding! They posed for the shot, but everyone got drowsy and mosquito-bitten.
