Week #16- I Truly know…Christ lives!

DSC_0405EVERYTHING IS GOING GOOOD WOOOOO CHURCH IS TRUE THERE IS NO REASON TO BE SAD< CHURCH IS ALWAYS TRUE AND JESUS CHRIST LIVES! WOO fired up! and ready to roll out. We are going to the Dabbs at 230 on thanksgiving and then for dinner that night we are going to the Clarks our old ward mission leader. Then that morning we are going to a turkey bowl, soo fun dominate football. I love the church and the mission. I am so thankful for all the things the have been given to me. I cannot express in words, some of the feelings I have felt of Jesus Christ’s deep love and compassion for me. I know that he truly lives. I know these things for myself now. This is not just something to say for fun. I truly know that Jesus Christ lives, and that his church has been restored. I truly now through some experiences that are small and some that are big, but i know it. I wish that everyone in the world could truly feel the love that there Savior has for them. What a better place the world would be if we truly acted out in faith, towards the Savior and followed him how great would be your joy! I want everyone to know, who ever is reading this, that God is real, that Great spirit who is Our Heavenly Father, loves you, with a perfect love, and there is nothing you can do that will change that. You can not rationalize out of existence the law of gravity and expect to fly when you jump off a cliff it does not work like that. God and Jesus Christ absolutely are, and they love you, they know everything. So listen to them, they want to take you by the hand and guide you through the darkness, to there arms of love, love that never ends, a happiness that is a “everlasting burning” no words of mortal men can describe the feelings you can get by following the savior and knowing that you are doing what he wants you to do. It is the pure love of celestial beings, of whose glory, we cannot even begin to understand. I want you all to know that I care for you, I might not even know some of you very well or maybe I know you very well, but I want you to know that when I look at you, I see you clothed in a perfect white robe, with a countenance of lightning. I want you to know that you can look past the imperfections of this life, and see who you truly are a wonderful daughter, or son of God. Love, peace, joy, happiness, that is what life is all about, so appreciate the things you have, because everything you have was given to you. The more you appreciate the more you can love. I testify that the Savior lives, I know it more than i know that 2+3 is 5. I have felt the Atonement in my life, I have experienced his love. So trust in him and move forward, that is the joy of this life. No matter what your circumstances may be, you can know for yourself that the savior lives, but you have to pray, and fast, show that you care, and want to be happy. I cannot understand and you cannot understand the Happiness that comes from living the gospel. It is more powerful than any trash that the world has to offer. Charity, Humility, Diligence, Virtue, Faith, Mercy, are the things that bring that love, remember, the harder life gets the more love you can feel of the Savior, in good times and in bad. There are alot of voices in the world, trying to pull you in different ways. Listen to that still small voice, it will lead you to peace and happiness, I promise you with my life.

Love Elder B. Corbin

Ps. Church is so true I cant even believe how freaking true it is. I love you all. Have a great thanksgiving, remember, the Savior died for you, and me. I have a new comp who is chill, Elder Garrison. He is from Idaho, Weiser. He is smart, legit guy, this transfer is gonna be fun. Love you all!!!!!

Week #15- Just Go Hard

Hey yeah the Church is true wooooo get fired up wooo!!!!!!!!!!! We can actually live forever in the presence of God, wow blows my mind every time i think about the gospel it is the ONLy thing that makes us happy! So ELDER ADAMS IS BYE BYE, no more training. Now my new companion is Elder Garrison, he is super chill and relaxed I know I am gonna get along with him easy! Our District just went from tiny to massive, we have 9. Everything is going well, so i probably wont have to buy a jacket because i already bought a twenty dollar lsu pull over jacket then my trainer left me a wind breaker that is black so ill just wear that over it, an i’m super warm and looks pro. Anyways for Christmas i though about the things i want, Since we are getting mini ipads before the year ends i NEED to get a LIFEPROOF CASE so it does not get broken. That would be really nice, so i can keep it in excellent condition. I am leading this area now of Monroe, La. Its not to bad, Its gonna be good, i think i will stay here for a total of 4 transfers, so six months so i would not mind that! Doing what we can, I am going to try to set the record for tracting this next week of 30 hours, 6 hours each day from tuesday-sat. It would be the highest in the mission, just go hard, it’s what the Lord would do, I was able to get my hands on a book called the infinite atonement. i read like 100 pages in one night but then i had to give it back, it was soo good i could not put it down. For thanksgiving and Christmas I think just in members homes and what not probably nothing too crazy. Im glad to hear that everything is going good back home. Church is going good, working hard! Tracting and what not, this transfer is gonna be legit! So stoked to move foward in life and just keep going! The Lord blesses us for diligence and loves it when we listen in faith and obedience. Listen to the spirit and read the scriptures, it keeps you safe from the advisory. THe church truly has been restored, there are 15 million members and 7000 million people on the earth, thats 0.00214 %. Truly that Satan “which decievieth the whole world” fufills that revelation of John. Love you all
Love

Week #14 – Bring Salvation

Hey mom so it looks like we are able to email tonight because we are bike elders and we can go tract or anything right now because it is dark! So we get to finish emailing yeah!!! So this week went by fast, last week of training woo! I’m most likely going to be leading the area of Monroe now, and My companion Elder Adams, will be transferred, so we will get a new district leader!

I want to be as brief and is powerful as I can. I pray that the Spirit will touch the hearts of all those who read this. Our Heavenly Father, the creator of all things, both in heaven and in earth, all powerful and all merciful, loves us more than we can even begin to comprehend. He called one who is more intelligent then them all, one who could break the bands of death, and unleash the power of the Almighty God. That maybe, just maybe, a handful of his children may be saved from the endless pit of torment. A perfect soul, one with infinite love, virtue, temperance, meekness, humility, diligence, and mercy. That he may succor his people unto him. Jesus Christ our older brother, who is perfect in all things, LAID, DOWN, HIS, LIFE. No greater act of significance than this, in all of the eternities. It is the most important thing the world will ever know. Christ suffered all manner of affliction, pain and sin, that he bleed from every poor. Someone who has never committed one sin, died for you, that if ye so choose to follow him that ye may be happy. I want to share an experience that I have had so far on the mission, August 13th, 2014. I remember hugging all the ones that I care about and leaving them behind for two years. Right after I had walked through the security gates in the John Wayne Airport in Orange County, California. I waved my final good bye, and as I walked toward my gate, I sat down. I felt that I could not do this. I thought, what have I done? I just traded away a beach home, surfing everyday, family, friends, a job, for what, to be persecuted for my beliefs, to have people tell me that what I believe is wrong, to be spit at, cursed at, to get doors slammed in my face? But as I was shaking in the Airport, wondering if I have made the right choice. I NEVER PRAYED SO HARD IN MY LIFE…. I tell you that I have never felt the pure love of Christ more fervently in my life. As I barely fought back tears, I felt that Christ was there, comforting me in a time that seemed to never end. Helping me to get through that of which, is the hardest thing I have ever done in my life. I knew that Christ loved me, even in the simplest of things, and I was sitting down, I was brought to the remembrance about what I left everything for. The purpose was all around me. Beloved Brothers and Sisters sitting and walking all around me, some of which, are focused on the things of the world, how much money they are gonna make on this next deal, rather than how they are going to fight the most important battle of all, that of life eternal and endless misery. I testify with all the fervor of my soul that Jesus Christ lives, he is the Son of the Only Begotten, and he in all his glory is there. He will comfort you in your times of need, in moments when you believe all is lost. “And behold, this is the whole meaning of the law…. (that) he shall bring salvation to all those who shall believe on his name; this being the intent of this last sacrifice, to bring about the bowels of mercy, which over -powereth justice, and bringeth about means unto men that they may have faith unto repentance. Yea, cry unto him for mercy; for he is mighty to save.” (Alma 34: 14,15,18) In the sacred name of our Beloved Savior and Redeemer, even Jesus Christ, amen. Love you all and miss you!

Week #13- A Wonderful University

Hey mom, its good to hear. I’m glad everything is going well.  I love the care package, the del taco sauce is so good, i have bought some microwavable burritos from Walmart which are a steal, i can get like 3 full meals out of a big bag that is only $3.43 its nice , i miss del taco haha. But its good, Insanity is working, i have noticed a big difference, we do a fit test every two weeks, in the program and my numbers are improving fast. Its good, I have set a new goal, that by the beginning of summer of next year I want to be able to dunk a basketball on a ten foot rim, my hops have gotten a lot better. Its legit, the mission truly is a wonderful university, its more powerful than any other university i know of, “Seek ye first the kingdom of god,.. then shall these things be added unto you”. I know that to be true, that if we seek first God, and knowledge of him, he will bless us in all things that we do. We must realize our dependence on the savior and the inadequacies that we all have, the power of the atonement not only forgives sins, but gives us the strength to overcome trials, that we ourselves could never overcome unless we call upon the Savior and put faith in him. Divine Potential, we must realize who we are, and not forget it. If we truly understood who we are, and who we can become, we would do everything we could until we were absolutely exhausted, and then fight like “lions” for our eternity. We are all enlisted, we must study the scriptures daily, to realize our divine potential, and not forget it, it takes daily effort, daily remembrance of the savior and his atonement. We must realize that eternal life is at stake, we must see the battle that is at hand. We must realize that there are things we must do to change for the better of what we are now doing. No matter what we have done, we can leave behind any transgression, it is the miracle of the Atonement of Christ, but we cannot do it unless we have an active commitment to the church. In Mosiah, the Lord called Abinidai to preach his word to King Noah who did everything contrary to that of the gospel, and he did with the power and authority of god. The lord even delivered him out of the hands of the evil priests who tried to lay there hands upon him. He fulfilled the word of the lord, and until he fulfilled the commandment the lord gave him, God did not and would not suffer his death until after he had accomplished the thing which he hath commanded him. The lord will deliver us out of hard times, trials, and hardships, but we must be as job “having a perfect faith in Christ” meaning that we will face these hardships, but we must not forget who we are. And if you have fallen short, made a mistake, you can be forgiven. soften your heart to the possibilities, and change yourselves for the better. Jesus Christ knows who you are and he will help you, if you call upon him steadfastly, and continually. Take advantage of the scriptures. I love you all , and miss you.
In the name of Jesus Christ, amen.

Ps. On thanksgiving, idk exactly what we are aloud to do, but Halloween, was fun we played some settlers, and some board games. Transfer day is coming up soon, in two weeks. I might stay in monroe, i think i will but idk. The del taco sauce was great and the steak strips, everything was good. Love you mom and dad.

Stay schemin,
Love Elder B. Corbin
