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.

Bauti-strito Tierra Blanca! The bautistrito is when every companionship in the district baptizes in the same week. Elders Poe, Gutierrez L, Hunt, Tovar, Nelson, and Resendez did it. The man in the back with the goatee stands by his wife. He went to church in Utah for a long time. Nobody invited him to be baptized.

Tierra Blanca means White Earth. It isn't. But the climate is white hot. They have nicknamed the area la novia del sol, or, girlfriend of the sun. The name is very well-deserved out there. The missionaries cool down by baptizing.
