A longing of the soul

 

Editor,
Prayer is not asking. It is a longing of the soul. It is daily admission of one’s weaknesses. It is better in prayer to have a heart without words than words without a heart. -- Mahatma Ghandi

I thought that you would like to know

 

Dear Editor,
At the beginning of the year 2014, Dr. and Mrs. Gregory O. Gomez, bought a mobile home to live in while serving Primera Baptist Church in Yorktown. They have the mobile home parked next to the church, 541 N. West St. They were given a permit of six months. Dr. Gomez went back to renew the permit, and was given one more month, until August 22. I thought you would like to know.
 
Dr. Gomez was born in Yorktown in the year 1929. Dr. and Mrs. Gomez have spent 60 years in the ministry. Dr. Gomez wants to spend his last days serving the church and the community. It seems that it won’t happen. I thought you might like to know.
