a new area for Tali - new challenge :)

Yolk of the Week: Why do seagulls live by the sea?? CAuse if they lived by the bay they'd be bagels!!!
Quote of the Week: "l know that not all people who talk about God are from God. But something just told me to let you in."
Looks like you had a great Easter bash! l haven't seen the "Because of Him" Video! l was actually told to watch it by my leaders, but my headphones broke in Hurst, and we hardly ever have time to do time, so l haven't.... but l need to soon!
 Sadly, l had to leave what was left of the lovely Easter package in Arlington. But down here in Killeen we had SO much fun! Hijole, this has been a crazy change. But l love it! The little branch is so close and united! My companion and l get along so well!!! Haha we're pretty much the only Mexicans in the branch. (SHe's from Reynosa) And l don't even really count. But all of the El Salvador, Ecuador, Nicauragua, and Puerto Rican people give us a hard time about it :)
lt's just Hna. Lopez and l covering the whole stake of Killeen. lt's by far my hugest area! l'm pretty sure we border the San Antonio, Houston, and Lubbuck missions. There is so much potential in this area. 
l'm going to learn a lot about the military here! Almost every one here is military. l've never heard so many foreign acronyms in my life!!!!
We are switching apartments this week... maybe. We're moving into the elders old apartment in Killeen. l'll just say.... young men should learn how to clean their houses and do dishes BEFORE their missions :P
l'm so ready to serve the Lord! lt's tempting to get "homesick" for my old areas up north, but then l remember that the Lord puts us exactly where ne needs us. l found myself complaining a lot in my head about the apartment, the isolation, and stupid things. ln my morning personal study, me toco leer in 1 Nefi when the family of Lehi left EVERYTHING and dwelt in a tent. l was humbled and reminded that l have nothing to complain about. Nothing at all. l'm so happy to be here :) l know that our Savior loves us! Yesterday we celebrated the crazy amazing blessing of His resurrection! Through him, all of the unfairness and hardships of life are made right. There's no other knowledge that can sustain us through our toughest trials. l know it cause l have read the Libro de Mormon ( Just finished it again!)
l hope you have all had a great Easter!
-Hna. Gomez
