Week #40 – Having too much Fun Fishing

IMG_5972

Still the Jokester!!!

Sorry i have not emailed in like two weeks, last week i was having to much fun fishing so i was too lazy to email haha, sorry you will have to forgive me. haha. Life is fantastic, i did not get transfered yet i am still in hattiesburg Ms. life is great hear, so last week we got dropped like a mile stone in the depths of the sea with out best investigator. i think she was greedy and wanted bishop store house and the bishop was not gonna help her unless she progresses. Which im glad that he held firm because i think she had some wrong motives. We often think that getting baptisms determine success not true. Its our first covenant. We want be to be ready to make that covenant. there is no point in making it if you are not ready, let alone you are doing it for money. Missionary work is tough, but it is rewarding, the lord has rewarded us in many ways, no doubt, i have seen it in my life and in yours. Aubree is getting married, tucker is dominating life, dad is getting the device going, Blake might be getting married soon, the house is fantastic. James and mandy are having another kid. Our life’s are being blessed in many unseen ways. I know my life will be forever blessed for this service. and it will effect the rest of my life tremendously. Jordan is home from his mission, did he even leave, i mean that was soooo fast haha! Brett my man, he is home tooo that is soooo awesome of them, fantastic. Life is awesome. nothing new, My companion is feeling a lot better we have been working for like the last month. It has been good. i developed a new love for the work while i was out for the count! It was good to talk to yall on mothers day! eyyy hahah so fast, time is flying i will be hitting my year mark soon wHAT? sooo awesome the mission is fantastic.! i got ambers package with the jacket in it. and i got the clark little calendar! We have been doing our best to serve the lord and be examples to the peeps here. Love you all and Keep dominating, My thing this week was, there is no reason why you cant be your best self all the time, if there is anything that you need to change in life, whether it be physical or spiritual do it, don’t sell your life short, you are a child of god dont volunteer your life that way, don’t sentence yourself to a lifetime of being unhappy, a lifetime of being broke, a lifetime of being in a relationship that is no longer fulfilling to you, you matter, so give it all you got, and trust in the lord proverbs 3:5 he will lead you and guide you and walk beside you!

Love yall

it was the best Mother’s Day seeing all of my children. Special moments in life! Happy Mom! Brenan is doing great, loves the work, having joy in the journey!

Thanks mom, it was good to see yall Happy Mothers day!

It is crazy how fast things are going in the mission field! I dont have any too crazy experiences but it is fun being a missionary, we get to talk to so many different people. I’m not going to lie, it is hard to love the people of the south, but there are a lot of great people out here. It is definitely the bible belt! That is for sure. I know this church is true. Joseph Smith was prepared from the foundation of the world to be the prophet to restore Christs church to the earth! I really like the scripture in Matthew 24: 14. That is what we are doing right now! Preaching is gospel, and i like the last scripture in the last chapter of Matthew, Matthew 28 :20. It is so awesome how many blessings the lord has promised us, it is absolutely incredible. We know that it is truly by grace that we can change, and after all we can do, we are forgiven. Not because all we can do, but because of grace. Its after. The lord loves each one of us so much! California is awesome, but I know Mississippi is where i am supposed to be, there are people out here prepared for me to teach! I know that the Lord has prepared his sons and daughters to here his gospel, we just need to find them. We are working with three investigators right now that are decent. Jeanette Lawton is progressing, she came to church and has a baptismal date of May 30th. The only problem is she has to get married first, thankfully the bishop can do it for free. Haha. Then we have Gloria and Katlyn, Gloria is the mom, and Katyln i think is the adopted daughter but i am not sure, haha, but they also have a baptismal date of May 30th and we just need to get them to church these next two sundays, so they can be baptized. WE are hoping they can act upon the answers they have recieved, it takes alot of faith, but i know they can do it. Other than that, there is nothing new, just going along, working hard on trying to find the elect of God. That is what it is all about. I have found, and have had alot of hard times, and alot of fun times, I am finding joy in the journey! I am thankful for my heavenly father for blessing me with the opportunity! Love yall

Love Elder B. Corbin

That is so awesome congrats aubree! and chase! That is gonna be so awesome! Have chase send me the video i want to see it! That would be awesome, i want to watch it the 15 min video! I got the wallet! hahah! Have blake send all the photos i have sent home to him, All my videos i sent to blake and you and tucker, on google drive! blake has all my stuff! This week was fun, slow, and fast!
My companion is doing really, good, doesn’t look like its gonna be 6 weeks under. More like 2, he is walking around, we have been going to appointments, he just gets dizzy if he walks around a lot, so he is recovering fast! I read and finished a book called, “Life’s Lessons Learned” by Dallin H. Oaks, it was really, good, i started another book called “TO the Rescue” which is Thomas S. Monson’s biography. it has a lot of uplifting stories in it! Life is great, keeping up the work, and doing what we can. I recently put in not to bad of work on my lifts, right now i’m repping about 175-180 on the bench, and i’m curling 35’s, both exercises at 4 sets of 8, im getting a lot stronger. The lord is blessing me physically, and spiritually, It has been rough sometimes, on the mission, as it is for everyone, but at those hard times, even more joyous moments role on! That is what mortality is about. But we have to always have a attitude for gratitude, it is the parent virtue of all others! I know that as we are thankful unto our God, he will bless us, “And he who receiveth all things with thankfulness shall be made glorious; and the things of this earth shall be added unto him, even an hundred fold, yea, more.”

I know this to be true, let us be thankful, and rejoice, for the lord god liveth. Our Savior Lives!

Love yall, let me know mom if there is any thing i need to send for chase or for aubreee, i know i still got to send that full picture of me in a suit! Ill get that done and send it next week!

Love from ELDER B. Corbin
have a good week!
