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.

Missionaries get excited to do things they don't do at home--especially the North American missionaries. Elder Watkins is from Arizona. This is a couple of days before Thanskgiving. Mexicans don't really celebrate Thanksgiving, but they have the general idea; kill and eat a turkey. They love to make the missionaries happy. Elder Watkins is happy. He gets to help prepare the meal. Get it?

A few minutes later the scrawny bird is progressing toward the festive feast. One of our missionaries actually butchered a cow for an investigator on preparation day. (He was a butcher before his mission.) Fortunately, he did not send us pictures.
