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.

Elders Gil, Taufa, and Cabacungan had an investigator in Cardel. Mom and I went with them to visit. This is the town hit hardest by the front of Hurricane Karl. The flooding after the hurricane was incredible. You can see the "bathtub ring," the high water mark, on the wall. Elder Gil, the tallest of the missionaries is about six feet tall. The amazing thing is that this house sits three full blocks from a now dry riverbed and it at least fifteen feet higher than the riverbank. The cement house was not damaged. The people knew what might be coming and evacuated in time. Just say "no" to post-hurricane flooding.

This post marks the last one for the month of October, 2010.

Looks like Lake Powell.
