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.

Con amor,

Sis Flores and Sis Carrillo were working in their area, Jardín Branch, San Andrá Tuxtla. They had been in the area only a couple of weeks. They were each contacting people in the street. Sis Flores said that they were about a meter apart. Someone yelled at her, "Hey are you the elders?" She said that she said, "No, we are elderas!"-- but she was joking . . . I think. The man said that a few weeks ago that "boy elders" had been teaching him but that the had not seen them for a while. He said that he needed to be baptized and so did his three grandsons. So, the "elderas" taught them. They were all baptized together. The older young man is preparing to serve a mission and he was the desiganted baptizer.
