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,

We stopped at a homemade potato chip stand in Piedras Negras. These things are really good, if you dump some salt on them, and are a guarantee for instant heartburn.

I asked the man and his sons who run the stand for a picture. This was it. Mexicans do not naturally smile for the camera. It is a genetic imposibility unless you beg them.

I begged. This is what I got. Maybe I should have tipped them a little more.

(If you want to see bigger smiles, click on the photo.)

Bro and Sis Hansen -

My son, Michael Herron will be entering the MTC in a week and a half. I found your blog, and I've read quite a bit ot it. It is really going to help us get him ready! Oh, do I wish you both were still there! Fingers crossed that the new leadership will keep a blog like this! Congratulations on completing an honorable mission (presidency!). Take Care, Kara Herron, Highland Ut

I forgot to tell you that Michael will be serving in the Veracruz Mission - you probably figured that one out, though! ;-)
