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.

Fifteen days after the hurricane the Veracruz Mexico Stake organized a service project in Cardel, the hardest hit area. The destruction and the lack of recovery, after two weeks, was hard to understand. We have never seen anything like it.

The sign says, "Hands that Help. Lattér-day Saints. Here"

We transported about 40 missionaries from Veracruz to Cardel. Some had been in the mission for only 5 days; others arrived 4 days before the hurricane hit. Welcome to your mission!
