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.

On Sunday, November 7th, we were in Tuxtepec, Oaxaca at a stake conference. En route, I got a phone call from a stake president in Guadalajara who said that a missionary from Aguascalientes was arriving in our mission the next morning. You figure it out. I couldn't. These cities are hundreds of miles apart. So, that night I called Elder Butler from Tucson who was a district leader and working with Elder Ricks from Texas to give them the good news that they would be training starting the next morning. They were thrilled at the chance! We met Elder Hernandez who is from Aguascalientes but who came in from Guadalajara, not the
MTC-Mexico, at the Veracruz Airport. We put him right to work. He is a really good missionary who is working hard and having success. His Spanish is better than mine and so is his English.

Oh dear. I wonder if I am in trouble for posting this photo.
