Week #6- Faith In Jesus Christ

DSC_0345

Elder Kulu with Brenan, one of his buddies from the MTC

Faith in Jesus Christ is the first principle of the gospel of Jesus Christ and is the most important. Faith is hoping for things that are evident but are not seen. Faith is the point of why we are on the earth. Earth is a trial period, the Lord wants to see if we will choose to follow him, which will show are love for him. Do you love the Lord? That’s why the Lord gave us a new commandment in John 13: 34-35. This is what the whole purpose of our life is, to exercise FAITH IN JESUS CHRIST! All the blessing we can receive, are from this principle. If we have faith in Christ, it will lead to action. If you don’t believe in the church, your faith will lead you to SEARCH. If you don’t SEARCH you DONT HAVE FAITH. The Seventeen points of the true church, are found all over the bible, they are the blue print of the Church of Christ, from the BIBLE ITSELF.
1. Christ organized the Church (Ephesians 4:11-14)
2. The true church must bear the name of Jesus Christ (Ephesians 5:23)
3. The true church must have a foundation of Apostles and Prophets (Ephesians 2:19-20)
4. The true church must have the same organization as Christ’s Church (Ephesians 4:11-14)
5. The true church must claim divine authority (Hebrews 4:4-10)
6. The true church must have no paid ministry (Acts 20:33-34; John 10:11-13)
7. The true church must baptize by immersion (Matthew 3:13-16)
8. The true church must bestow the gift of the Holy Ghost by the laying on of hands (Acts 8:14-17)
9. The true church must practice divine healing (Mark 3:14-15)
10. The true church must teach that God and Jesus are separate and distinct individuals (John 17:11; 20:17)
11. The true church must teach that God and Jesus have bodies of flesh and bone (Luke 23:36-39; Acts 1:9-11; Hebrews 1:1-3)
12. The officers must be called by God (Hebrews 4:4; Exodus 28:1; 40:13-16)
13. The true church must claim revelation from God (Amos 3:7)
14. The true church must be a missionary church (Matthew 28:19-20)
15. The true church must be a restored church (Acts 3:19-20)
16. The true church must practice baptism for the dead (1 Corinthians 15:16&29)
17. “By their fruits ye shall know them.” (Matthews 7:20)

WE HAVE ALL OF THESE THINGS! It cant be more obvious, the Lord talks a lot about missionaries going and finding the ELECT in the D&C. Are you apart of that?

Elder Tad R. Callister talk on “What is the Blueprint of Christ Church?” spells it out.

Brothers and Sisters, SATAN IS REAL, HE IS OUT TO BRING YOU DOWN TO THE DEPTHS OF HELL. BE NOT PRIDEFUL! ETERNAL LIFE IS AT STAKE! (Eternal life is living with god eternally happy with our families forever)(immortality is just living for ever, which will happen to everyone, but does not mean u will be happy, in FACT I KNOW YOU WON’T BE HAPPY). FAMILY ALL OF YOU, whether you are a friend of mine, an acquaintance, or maybe I do not even know you, if you are reading this, I want you to know that God has restored his church to the Earth. God is the same today, yesterday, and forever! THEREFORE, he STILL gives REVELATION, through MODERN DAY PROPHETS. “By their fruits ye shall know them”. I Testify that faith in Jesus Christ will lead to sincere repentance, baptism, receiving the gift the Holy Ghost and enduring to the end. Go listen to Elder Tad R. Callister’s talk. If you are a member or not, it is for all to see, if they have the faith to look. In the name of Jesus Christ, Amen.

Love Elder B. Corbin

P.S. Mom I love you all is well, i’m glad things are going well back home, I have been eating healthy, chicken rice and beans with cheese buttered tortillas, burritos all is good, ramen with chicken, Im getting more creative.

Week #5- Church is True

IMG_4980Happy 19th Birthday Brenan!!!

(Thanks to all of you who sent him good wishes, he loved it!)

This week went by pretty fast, I did a lot of praying. In Monroe, our area is split into south side and north side. Our bike area is the biggest bike area in the mission. We just got our area split so we only have the north side now. Our area is probably the hardest area in the mission because north Monroe is one of the more wealthy area’s. We as a companionship had done a lot of praying for investigators. On our second to last day in south side, we started tracting three consecutive houses in a row. We were let in and one of them is a golden investigator, Brother Brady. He is learning to read the Book of Mormon. He has acknowledged that the Book of Mormon sheds a lot of light on different doctrines taught in the Bible. I have been studying the Bible a little bit along side the Book of Mormon. The Bible, you can tell has so many little corruptions in it since it has been translated so many times. The plainness of the King James version, which is the bible that has been translated the least amount of times(only three times), contains most of the correct and plain doctrine. Even then there are different verses and misunderstandings of the scholars who translated them. Which is why I’m starting to love the JST in the back by the TG. That is why I love the Book of Mormon so much, it contains the everlasting gospel like no other book. “It is the most correct book out of any book”. And that is evident to those who have faith to read it. If you are reading this and you are not LDS, ask yourself this. If god was the same today, yesterday, and forever; Why would God being perfect, all of a sudden stop calling prophets, and stop giving man revelation? The Bible is a record of prophets being called and taken away in different dispensations, (which are periods of times when prophets were on the earth) and apostasy (which are periods of times when the people do not have prophets). Why would God, after letting Jesus Christ die, and all of his apostles who had the priesthood authority, through the laying on of hands, to act in the name of Christ, let no other prophet be called to the earth for this the last days? It just would not happen, The Church of Jesus Christ has been restored through a prophet Joseph Smith. For all those who think we worship Joseph Smith, I just have to tell you that you are completely wrong. Anyways, through Joseph Smith the Lord led him to a hill, where ancient golden plates were buried, (which is not strange because that is what people wrote on back then). It is a record of the people in the America’s, and if you would even try to desire to want to know what the Book of Mormon is, and acted upon the little faith that you can muster, you would learn exactly how people got over to that side of the world before Columbus. The fact that we claim that we have modern day prophets and that we have the priesthood authority of god, and you are not even in a mood to even try to care to learn about it: means that you don’t care about Jesus Christ. Your faith in Jesus Christ is weak, and that is evident in your action of not reading and acting upon. If you think that The Gospel of Jesus Christ as taught by THE MORMONS does not pertain to you, and if you think that you can be a church of your own and that your not a fan of organized religion, well let’s just say that means that you have not searched the scriptures enough. There is evidence all over that organization and order is of god, not mans wisdom of interpreting different scriptures. Don’t get me wrong we all make mistakes. I used to struggle with the facts about the Church, how can we claim that we are correct and every other church is wrong? How can we claim that we have a prophet today? How can we claim that Heavenly Father and Jesus Christ are separate but have the same will? How can we claim that the FULLNESS OF THE EVERLASTING GOSPEL OF JESUS CHRIST HAS BEEN RESTORED? Well the answer is in the Book of Mormon. So why don’t you quit being so lazy, and skeptical, and pick the Book up, and start reading on verse 1 page 1. I testify to you that if you do so, and if you are a true follower of Christ, if you read with real intent and a desire to know, you will receive an answer the power of the Holy Ghost! It worked for me, it worked for my family members, it worked for millions of other people who had the faith to act! If you are not willing to even act to read? Well, I’m sorry. The Lord still loves you, but until you have the faith to act, well you can’t be on the Lords team. If your not on the Lords team, your on Lucifer’s team. So buckle your seat belt gents, and read the Book of Mormon. Church is true, prayer is powerful, pray always, in times of happiness, and in times of sorrow! Through prayer we can receive guidance and wisdom. Through prayer we can know the truth of all things. Through prayer can can be comforted. Through prayer our testimonies can be strengthened. Brothers and Sisters, life is short, it is shorter than a blink of an eye! Eternity is long, in fact it never ends. I was not sure if you knew what eternity meant, so I’ll spelt it out for you. FOREVER, NEVER ENDING, ETERNAL, NEVER STOPS, ALWAYS GOING, haha, so don’t spent the time down here that we have wasted. Serve others, help them in times of need and trial. We can all use help, we can all use a testimony strengthener. Like a dam stops a rivers flow and progress, when we are damned and our spiritual progress is stopped. That is the true hell knowing what potential you had and then knowing that you could have chosen better. Knowing that you could become like the Father, and be perfectly happy! Realizing that you traded it away for pure filth and absolute trash that has no worth. The worth there of is none existent, (the dirt we stand on has more worth than transgressions), that my friends is true hell. Stone me, burn me all you want but that is not worth it. The Lord loves us brethren, everything he does for us is out of love, you just have to realize it. He sent his only perfect son to die for the sins of the world, satisfying both the law of justice and the law of mercy, and for what, us? We do not deserve what the Lord has given us. It is a blessing! Our bodies are not out bodies, our spirits are not ours, the Lord has created us! He gave us our bodies, and then he bought them with his suffering. So treat yourself virtuously, let thy thoughts be clean and worthy, so that you may always be able to enter into the Lords house. For all the sacrifices we make are far less then the blessing we receive when we make them. The Lord thy God is waiting to poor out blessings unto you. I know that the Church is true! I know that The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints is true! I know that Jesus Christ lives, and stands at the head of this church! I know that he is the only begotten son, and through him, we can endure all things. I know that Joseph Smith has done more for mankind than any other person save Jesus Christ himself. I know that Joseph Smith indeed saw Heavenly Father and Jesus Christ, face to face, and received an answer to his humble prayer. I know through the power of the Holy Ghost which is more powerful than any drug, and pleasure, any feeling of pain or sorrow, has testified through the pure love of Christ that the Book of Mormon is true. I know that families can be together forever, and that it is not some fairy tale, that this is real, as real as you see the earth, for all things denote that there is a god. Have faith and stand strong in the storm for “Good timber does not grow with ease,
The stronger wind, the stronger trees.
The further sky, the greater length.
The more the storm, the more the strength.
By sun and cold, by rain and snow,
In trees and men good timbers grow.”
-Thomas S. Monson
I testify that I know these things are true and if you will take the time to find these things out for yourself, the lord will bless you for your diligence in seeking him out, In the sacred name of our lord and savior, Jesus Christ, Amen.

Love Elder B. Corbin

Week #4- Satanic bugs, seriously Millions

IMG_4723Pic at the airport I sent Brenan for his photo album he is referring too in this letter.

Mom so this week went by fast, wow time is starting to pick up crazy! i got my lock, and the package was great!!! i cried looking at all the photos of all of you, i love you all so much and i’m thankful for your examples!!!! I got the card for tb thanks mom, i’m glad i got Bake’s old wallet its legit! ill keep it and the coin with me always, i got a couple more bug bites, stupid satan bugs, there are so many of them, every bug, we have no idea what these stupid little bugs are there are seriously millions of different kinds and they’re all satanic, i hate them , ahhahah but anyways monroe is great! it’s the biggest biking area in the mission.  The people down here are hard headed, but you will get occasionally the nice southern hospitality. Most people thank us for spreading the word of our LORD Savior JESUS Christ, hallelujah, praise  him Lord and Savior, oh yeah i know him Lord and Savior, it is funny sometimes! i try not to laugh but its 50% nice 50% mean. Everyone needs the gospel, i can’t imagine living without it. The knowledge that we have brings so much peace and understanding about who we are and where we are from, why we are here, and where are we going? Most people don/t understand these things, and don/t really care to learn or hear about it ’cause they don’t know what they are missing. The everlasting gospel of Jesus Christ has been restored, and all of the blessing there of are available if we choose to follow him and be baptized by someone holding the proper priesthood authority of  God, enter into the temple, and are married and sealed to a partner. But without that authority and those ordinances it just doesn’t allow us to walk past the angels who stand as sentinels. I’m so thankful for all the wonderful people in my life, for wishing me a happy birthday! I hope that all of you have a fantastic week, and that all goes well, i’m so thankful for my family, mom, dad and everyone for setting such a wonderful example and loving environment for me to learn and grow in. This is my last year as a teenager weird, where did time go! I’m glad you are finally moved in to the new house. it finally got done, realize that you live in absolute paradise, i never knew how blessed we were to live there. i truly understand that now, everyone know that the church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints is true, and that it will continue to move on with or with out you. May you live the gospel, to always be ready to stand in holy places worthily, to partake of the blessings that unfold from on high, and he will “open … the windows of heaven, and pour … out a blessing, that there shall not be room enough to receive it” (Malachi 3:10). Thanks for all the birthday wishes!! I love and miss you all but there is no greater work than that of the Lords. Mom did u get my letter with the usb card in it, it should be arriving soon at Poinsettia. Anyways, i love you all and hope things go well this week, Stay true to the gospel and the Lord will always be there for you, pains and trials are a  small moment, D&C 121;7-8. Have fun in Big Bear, i wish i could be there, i used to love the Pirate Ship and the sled things those are so fun! Have a great time! Always remember the Lord, and look at people with an eternal perspective, what great happiness comes from that!!!! WE can live forever in happiness with the Lord, so awesome, i’m so thankful for all of you and the gospel, it just brings so much happiness, pray to Heavenly father and truly thank him and Jesus Christ our older brother for all they have done for it is truly great. It is a marvelous work and a wonder. Love you all

Love Elder B. Corbin

So I’m trapped in the Library

DSC_0223

President and Sister McDonough

So we were gonna leave but we can because it’s raining crazy down here right now and we can’t bike in the rain so we are trapped in the library haha!

Let me know when u sent the package and when u sent insanity so i know that u sent it and that i can expect them. The mission is hard and it’s a good thing because i’m learning a lot, i’m thankful that i have the opportunity to serve the lord, i know he will bless us. I believe that he is making my mind smarter, as i memorize a scripture each day i can tell the difference, the church is true, my mind is being enlightened, we only use like what is it 10% of our brains as we excersise faith in the lord and study hard and memorize scripture, i bet he allows us to use more fully our brains, and allows us to gain a photo graphic memory if we do what he asks, which is to memorize a scripture everysingle day for a year. anyways i love you all and miss you and i can’t wait to see you all again, tell you how much i really love you and aspire to be like each one of you, all my family and friends have such great qualities and unique abilities about them, i love you all and miss you more than you know, continue to email me every week and write me if u want. i have not recieved any hand written letters but that’s okay becuase i know how busy everyone is, but if u are ever having a bad day, sit down and pray to lord, write me a letter i would love to talk to you and hear about you and your day, there is nothing more important than the relationships we have with those around us, for knowledge and relationships are the only thing we will take with us into the next life. I love you all and i know that the lord loves you more, and that he is always there, remember that “this too shall pass” 😉 aubs, so just “keep your head up yeaahh” (dads favorite song by andy grammer) What an absolute firecracker (riley) “Just call it a day elder” @ tucker corbin, i miss all of you and i hope your week goes great, remember the lord in all that you do and don’t be quick to iniquity, remember the sacrement prayer. And dont scress, which is stress because in the south tr is cr don’t run down the scrate, and quit scressin, haha anyways loves and keep it on going, life continues.

Love

Week #3- Day at a time

Sooo a lot of things happened this week, it rained for a whole day on sat, so it was a ggpd. which was nice (godgivenpday haha) and since we are on bikes we cant go outside because first people won’t let you in there house if you are soaking wet and then all their stuff will get drenched. Thanks for getting insanity for me, its allowed in the mission, we are allowed to go to bed at 9:15 at night depending on how much planning and prep for bed we have to do, the mission president encourages us to not waste anytime getting to bed as long as we are getting everything done, and we are aloud to get up early and work out. Everyday is like a battery charge he says, we must not use too much energy because then we won’t have any energy for the rest of the day. So yah, i won’t go to hard on the insanity but i do need it so thanks for getting that. Im still trying to figure out how i can get these videos off my camera and sent to you, the library does not have a computer that allows you to put anything in it, so i probably have to do it at the church. So you sent a package today for my birthday, thanks mom!!! That will be great ill look for it everyday, you said that you will send insanity separate so ill look for that too. Anyways, we had interviews with the mission president today and he is so cool and nice, he is one of the nicest person i have ever met. He gets everyone feeling calm and collected every time we meet with him. Day at a time he always says. Mom, i miss your cooking. i didn’t realize how good all the food we ate was, some of the people that give us food are alright cooks but dang i miss that. Anyways food doesn’t taste that good in general so haha jk. We went to this place today called Canes. it’s really good, they have some really good fried chicken fingers. Its tradition to go to a place like that after a District meeting. It rains a lot here and the thunder storms are loud and they’re often. It’s crazy how different it is from back home. I’m still memorizing a scripture every single day. I can tell the lord is enlightening my mind to be able to perceive and remember things easier. It’s definitely a testimony of being in the service of the Lord. Heavenly Father is so awesome and loving, if you think about it heavenly father loves us and he gave his only son who was PERFECT. Who sacrificed and felt all the pains of the world that hopefully a fraction of them would follow him. Talk about love, can you imagine having to even try to go through a part of what the Savior did? Amazing. As missionaries we try to develop Christlike attributes that we may be more guided by the Spirit, and be more of an example to our investigators. And Christ is perfect, if you look at his life he did everything for others. every act he preformed was for someone else. when he fasted for forty days and forty nights, he was tempted by the advisary. And if you remember he was tempted to make stones into food, now the real temptation of the advisary was not to eat food, because the lord can bear the pains of hunger and thirst but the real temptation was to use the power of the lord to fulfill an act of selfishness. If Jesus would have made those stones into food it would have shown that he was thinking of himself and not others. Christ always turns outwards when we would want to to turn inwards. When christ came out of the garden of Gethsemane, he had asked the apostle to stay awake with him. They didn’t, then when he was done with part of the worst suffering that you could possibly feel, he was betrayed by an apostle. What was the first act Christ did after that? He HEALED THE guards ear!!!!! If i was the Savior i would have been so mad with the apostles and at the world, amazing the Lord turns outwards when we would turn inward. We must learn to develop this Christlike attribute. In Monroe. it is a difficult area. We have one investigator, most places have like 3 or 4. Monroe people, like most people of this world, think that they don’t need the gospel. WHAT could possibly be of more worth than salvation? What could be of more worth in life than happiness? What could be of more worth than family? What can be of more worth than peace? We sin and make mistakes for what money? Power? Pleasure? Why are we so stupid? Why do we constantly fall short of the Lords example? Why do we create pain and sorrow for ourselves? Why do we lack faith when all things denote that their is a god? Why do we believe in the science and fictions of men when the scriptures are laid before us? Why do we strive to fufill our own desires of selfishness? Why do we not seek to allows keep the commandments of god? Why do we choose to make mistakes even tho we have our own testimonies of truth? Because we are all embryos of our Father in heaven, learning and growing to become better, even though more than half of the world believes that we blew up from an atom that we can’t even see, and now we are here talking to each other, yeah that makes so much sense haha, (and how we used to believe that the earth was the center of the Universe.) Alma Chapter 32 is a great chapter. i encourage you to read it. The point is that we are all weak, but Christ can make us strong if we choose to follow him. As missionaries we must invite those to build faith in Christ and to help them have the desire to believe, the desire to change. To all that are reading this letter of me ranting on… I want you to ponder in your hearts what you really want in life and really picture in your minds what that is, and think about where you came from, why you are here, and where you are going. And if you don’t believe in the church and you believe that i am an idiot, then let me ask you this. What happiness comes from the things of the world? Let me tell you that nothing on the earth will bring more happiness to you than the gospel, in 100 years time, guess what? you will be dead, then what chiefy? we just die? What is the point of life, for you i guess there is none, for you i guess you think that life is just a giant party, and if that brings peace to you, which it doesn’t. You always feel sad, and miserable, what a sad program that is. If you think that there might be a chance that the scriptures are something of importance or, that they are a record of OUR ancestors, that lived on the earth, you should act on that and find out and be rescued by Jesus Christ from the endless pit of woe. I thinks it’s funny people forget that it is 2014. And what i mean by that is, the fact that we tell time by 2014 years after Christ is hilarious. WE TELL TIME BY HOW MANY YEARS IT HAS BEEN SINCE CHRIST WAS ON THE EARTH!!!!!! HOW MORE OBVIOUS CAN IT GET THAN THAT< DID WE JUST MAKE UP 2014 or somethings idk, there are so many little things that denote that the church is true! it is amazing, and the fact that we only have 16 million members amazes me, i mean i guess it doesn’t because 1/3 of the world decided to follow Lucifer right out of the gate, so i guess it’s to be expected. Anyways get on your knees and pray to thank Heavenly Father for the knowledge and testimony that you have of the Book of Mormon, and ask for a chance to share that knowledge with someone who is looking for it. If you don’t have that knowledge, read the book of mormon and pray about it to know if it is true. the Lord will answer your prayer. We have a modern day prophet who receives revelation for the whole world. The battle between sin and righteousness is real. I testify that as you desire to do the right things in your life the Lord will grant the desires of your heart, Matthew 16:19 states, “And i will give unto you the keys of the kingdom of heaven, and whatsoever thou shalt bind on earth shall be bound in heaven and whatsoever thou shalt loose on earth shall be loosed in heaven”. What you do on this earth will be restored unto you in heaven. It is so important for us to take advantage of the life we have to serve the lord, and to show to him that we truly love him, and that we have faith in him, that is what life is all about, there is qoute i forget how it goes but i think it goes something like this, D&C 121 vs 7-8, “your afflictions will be a small moment, and if you endure it well he will exalt you on high”.  I testify that the church is true, that any other way other than the church is foolishness. There is no other church on the face of the planet that is correct, every other church, is apart of the great abominable church that the lord speaks of. Does not mean the people are bad but that they don’t know where to find the truth and i testify that this is the true church and the book of mormon is the most correct book of any book. I say this in the name of jesus christ amen.

Love

Week #2- 21 New Missionaries

IMG_4906

So yeah i got my bike. I didn’t get a lock tho>? I have a helmet did u buy a lock for me>? And im going to buy insanity the work out program at Walmart, our mission president encourages us to work out and get in good shape, he wants everyone to be in really good shape to bring forth the work. The mission home and the mission president and his wife are amazing. They are so loving and kind they have like 26 grandkids its cool. So the first day in the field is today, and yesterday i was able to participate in a lesson on chastity with Frank who is our real!!!!! progressing investigator and he will be getting baptized on sept 27. What my trainer told me was that everyone has a problem with dipping in the south… which is tobacco, they love it for some reason, i told frank everything that you and dad and blake have taught and i told him that it wasn’t going to be easy but if he does everything that he can he can accomplish this. Dipping is what everyone does, when ever and where ever they want its sad. OH and everyone here is a mozy, they just walk right out into the street and make cars dodge them its insane, people here just absolutely amazing, and my companion told me that everyone just reads the new testament and don’t even look at the old testament, its so funny!!!!! Elder Adams is good he is from Utah and his last companion was apostate just a piece of work, so im getting him back into the swing of things but he is glad that we are able to get things going again, he is a great missionary. So yeah today or tomorrow im going to Walmart again to buy somethings, i went to Walmart yesterday and bought some food for a few days, then i bought some bedding and some sheets, then i bought some lights for my bike and a small backpack, in our mission we are aloud backpacks because it is a biking area and mission. So what im going to buy is insanity work out program, a water bottle container, and maybe a few other things that i cant think about right now until i get there, so yesterday i emailed from the church which is at 909 north 18th street Monroe Louisiana if u want to kind of see where im situated and how the area of my mission looks i know dad loves to go on google earth and check things out, i live int he apartment homes behind the brookeshires you know the address. MONROE crazy right the lord knows, it isn’t where duck dynasty is there on the other side of the river Ouachita, that splits Monroe and west Monroe, but my comp says we can go to there warehouse and check it out ill get pictures if we go. But it still is really close, the lord knows the desires of our hearts… side note get riley and tucker and chads email for me so i can email them, i want to hear from them, emailing is like a great thing on the mission haha, oh and just listened to the voice memos on the ipod that was really nice thanks everyone. DUCK COMMANDER is a big thing down here, duck dynasty are like apostles, for some people, i personally think my mind has changed about them because they have there own church and someone said that they have met with the missionaries once before, so if they claim to be followers of christ lets see if they really are,. But yeh the city of Monroe is pretty big and we have not done too much biking yet but i know we will, we are going tracking today and it will be great. Elder Adams is going to baptize the Frank guy, it will be his first baptism. People love jesus oh lord the jesus he’s my savior…. people are absolutely aaaaaaaamaaaaaaazing… the people down here surprise me everyday. its seriously ridiculousness the kind of things people say and do, they think that the book of mormon is a study guide
??????? with… and the people think that some of the old testament is incorrect and is not worth looking at its absolutely hilarious they also have a different church on every corner of the block. One church will be like the life church and the other will be like the red corners or like some sort of made up ridiculousness and people woo work to be done let me tell ya,. and the shower that i have has like no water pressure so its like is the water even hitting me its funny. but the life of the mission is awesome and i’m glad that i have the opportunity to serve. THe zls are awesome the members pay for a gym membership for them and they get to go to a really nice gym. THe bike missionaries like me don’t get as many things but idc its better that way, i feel more like a missionary.
