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 Taufa and Cabacungan work in the hurricane-hit pueblo, Cardel. They found a girl named Diana Elibeth Montes Landa who wanted to be taught the gospel. She is a deaf/mute. But, as so many missionaries here have done, they set out to teach her my drawing pictures and making up hand signals. Elder Taufa claims to know a little sign language, but she doesn't speak English. Time progressed and she received a spiritual witness that the Church is true. It was time for her baptismal interview. I told them that I would love to do it. Mom took these pictures of us during the interview. Diana is a sweet girl with a great smile.

I don't know what was do dang funny, but I guess we were having a good time.

Here is Diana with her missonaries, Elders Cabacungan (Carlsbad, CA) and Taufa (Mesa, AZ), after the interview--all smiles.
