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.

The missionaries went into Los Tuxtlas on November 17th. On November 20th was the first baptismal service. These sisters had been going to church for awhile and just needed to be invited to baptism. When invited, they gladly accepted. Elder Butterfield is a new missionary, now 6 days into his mission. He is from Wisconsin. The other two are the zone leaders who trained him, Elders Amador from Querétaro and Schilhabel from Bakersfield.
