The Provo Tabernacle Analogy



Joke of the Week: Why do seaguls live by the sea?? CAuse if they lived by the bay they'd be bagels!!!
Quote of the Week:  "Satan don't kick no dead dog." -Some talk l can't remember
l am officially two weeks from twenty. Watch out folks....l'm about to be old.
Well Hermana REALLY se fue this time. She headed up to Gainesville on thursday and left us all alone in a normal companionship! lt's been a little bit of an adjustment, but Hermana Blood and l are rocking it. THe best part is that the signiature on our phone now reads "Hna's Blood y Gomez" Hahahaha Bloody Gomez.
Well if l didn't know that this work is a work of peace, l'd have been stressed out this week. l gave the 3rd training in 3 weeks for my zone! Haha l think my leaders are trying to make me be better at giving them :)  We recieved about 75 refferals in one day that we had to contact! And with the crazy rainstorms driving has been nuts. But who can complain about a full planner?? No yo.
Tambien, Brenda and Alberto were interviewed.... Alberto isn't quite ready. But we're praying that their work schedules allow them to watch conference this weekend. The power that comes from listening to the prophet is real. l'm SO excited for all of my people to hear President Monson talk!
Speaking of the prophet, the General Relief Society meeting was SO GOOD! l loved the analogy that Sister Somebody shared about the Provo Tabernacle. lt's in those times when we are burned down that the bad is stripped away. That's how we become changed by the Atonement! When God called his disciples to be "fishers of men" he meant that they would NEVER go back to their past lives. l know that although l might someday return to good ole Lake Point, l can never go back to who l was before. When we decide to be disciples of Christ, we recieve a responsiblity to change our hearts! We have to leave our nets and boats and follow Him.
All in all... a crazy week. l prayed like crazy for my investigators, my lovely friends Danelle and Bronwyn who are heading out soon, and of course, for my companions. l know that this work is the best work in the world!
l've been picking up on a little Portugues! Sometimes we turn on the Testaments or the Joseph Movie in Portugues and the GPS is always in Portugues :) Tambien gracias to the BLakeS! y'all are the best!
l'm stinking excited for conference. Although l'm gonna miss bingo with M&M's :)
Sincerely,
Eldera Gomez
