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.

After our meeting with the local leadership, we took the missionaries to our favorite memela restauarante, La Encantada.

A memela is a large quesadilla. The best part is the huge corn tortilla, handmade. It is filled with stretchy white cheese, probably Oaxacan, and your choice of meats--carne asada, alhambra which is also beef, cochinita pibíl which is pulled pork Mexican style and really delicious and messy, or chicharrones which are slimy pig skin/fat. The food is excellent and very economical.

The missionaries were are starving, as always, and very happy, as almost always.

Elder Moa from Hawai'i had been in the mission for two days. This was his first of many memelas.
