August 28, 2012

Hello everyone!

This last week has been a little hard.  I got a little depressed last week.  This week is going to be different.  Thank you all for your letters and packages.  Many of them came when I was at the lowest of my low last week.  I have rededicated myself to be more obedient and more diligent in all that I do.

Cool stories of the week:

- Gave a pass along card to a guy packing heat! (He had a gun)

- I was riding my bike (whose name is Teancum, a warrior from the Book of Mormon) really fast trying to get to an appointment when a car few past us. Then, someone threw a handful of change at me as hard as he could while passing us at a pretty fast speed.  All of the change flew around me as if there was a force field surrounding me.  Pretty cool!  None of the speeding change hit me and I kept pedaling without missing a beat.

- I gave 2 blessings this last weekend, my first ones ever.  One was for a man who is really stressed because he is going be homeless.  He used to be in prison and his record is hurting his ability to find a job.  The other blessing was for a preemie baby.  That was interesting.

Investigators: (please pray for these people)
A part member family who we are reactivating.  I love this family, true southerners. They remind me of the Claytons.  I love Sister . . .  and she is so close to accepting the Gospel.

My companions name is Elder Christensen, from Washington.  He is a lot like me but a little more reserved.

I know that my Heavenly Father loves me and answers my prayers. Jesus Christ is my Savior and Redeemer, as a representative of Jesus Christ I testify that He loves us all and He wants us to use the gift of the atonement that He has given us.  I know because I am a witness of His love for other people, because I feel that love for all I meet and for all of you back home.  I testify of the words which I have said, that they are true for as long as I live and as long as the Lord lives, for all eternity.  In the name of Jesus Christ, Amen.

Love always,
Elder Gomm
