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.

The little lady in the second picture is Juana Luna, Jane Moon. Hermana Juanita, as everyone calls her, was imprisoned over 25 years ago for killing her abusive husband with a pipe. She got out in 1980 and is now 78 years old. She has the prettiest smile, one tooth on top, one on the bottom. When asked why she wanted to be baptized she said that when she goes to church, "I am filled." The first picture is the day of her baptismal interview after which I asked SLC for permission to baptize her. The second is her baptismal day a few weeks later, pictured with Hermanas Flores y Carrillo.

It's so neat to see the changes that come into people's lives as the let the Savior influence them.
