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.

This is Elder Ricks from San Antonio, Texas and Elder Gutierrez Cadena from San Luis Potosí. It was Elder Ricks' first baptismal service. He arrived a couple of days before the hurricane and we are now three weeks later. Poor Elder Ricks! He was so ill he could hardly leave the bathroom. But, he loaded up on Pepto-Bismol and held together long enough to get into the water and perform ordinances, a mom and her two children. These are two fine missionaries. Just look at those smiles!
