IMG_6647

The BOYS ARE BACK IN TOWN!!!

I love it! TRAVIS AND WYATT ARE HOME! YEHHHHH that is soo awesome, things are going fast. Shreveport is going good. It is the biggest city in the mission with 250,000 i believe so we are doing what we can to serve them. I got my package from aubree, and mom, i never got a package from amber yet. IDk what is going on with ambers package. Blakes wedding is soon soooo awesome! Aaron procuniar is getting married? what that was fast.!! I saw pics of ezra he is a cute baby! The Statums are awesome they are one of my favorite families. That was nice of her, I hope everything is going well for them! This week we have been working hard to find new investigators and maintain the ones we have. We are teaching a lady named Elizabeth, she is moving forward we just hope she can overcome a few of her obstacles. We got a referral this week, we are trying to contact it but every time we go over there no one is home, so we are gonna go at night and see if they are there. Not much new for me, we are just moving along. Im so humbled by this opportunity to serve the lord. I hope I can serve him well, and be able to fulfill my purpose as a missionary. The church is true, and I know it to be true by the power of the holy ghost. If you want to confirm your testimony or gain a witness fromt he spirit you have to want it more than anything else in the world and work for it through prayer, living the commandments, and studing the scriptures if you do that you can know the Book of Mormon to be true, and it will be the greatest blessing in your life!

Love Elder Brenan Corbin

Ps. Wyatt and Travis my homies, give me your email and send me some pics,,,, YOUR BACK!

Brenan with his new companion Elder Powell at the Shreveport Stake Center.

Hey mom so Yes I am in Shreveport with Elder Powell! I got Aubree’s ties she bought, I got the package you sent me, I have not gotten Amber’s package yet.  IDC about leadership its so much more fun being a normal missionary, don’t have to worry about numbers or nothing. I love the change, Shreveport is the biggest city in the mission! I saw ezra he is so cute !hahaha Zoe is awesome so glad to hear that! That’s good grandma is doing better! Marcus is back dang that is fast! Mission goes by sooo sloww…. jk its going fast. Im at 13 months wow. Things are going good here. Everything is okay and we are working hard. Pearl is all the way in jackson ms, so i drove with some elders like 4 hours accross the mission, our mission is pretty doggon big. WE have an investigator named Elizabeth she is awesome, we are teaching her parts of the commandments, she will be getting baptized soon she just has to find a place to live with her family (she is in her 40s and she is living with a male who is in his 20s, he owns the house, she is just staying there for now, there is no intimate relationship there, but according to the guidelines she has to move out). So that is what we are waiting for, she is awesome she knows the church is true! We have a great member in our area, we have the hard area, its mostly ghetto, but we live in the nice part. THe member is Bro Chandler he is awesome he  is a redneck but he is sooo nice and funny. He understands the gospel very well. One of our crazy potential investigators is Popeye. yes Popeye is her nickname, the cops called her that bcus her eyes pop really far out of her head. she has been diagnosed to be insane basically. We were doing service for her and she saw a dead worm on the ground and like ran away screaming and i was laughing soooo hard haha. SHe took us to the candy lady down the street. We go into her house and there is a little shop inside this house in the middle of the ghetto and she buys a “cupsicle”

….. its a Styrofoam cup with frozen Kool aid!!!!! so funny… it was pretty good. they were 75c.

That is the south for ya. She always tells us not to tract down the otherside of the street cus it is super sketchy, but the lord is on our side, and we have faith in every footstep so we dont play around nickaaaaa . That is the motto.

FAITH IN EVERY FOOTSTEP to follow Christ! With faith we can move mountains if need be. Jesus Christ delights in his people when they have great faith. If we had faith like the brother of Jacob we could pierce the veil! Let us work foward in faith apply the atonement of Christ everyday, praying and feasting upon the words of Christ daily ! I know that by so doing we can draw closer to Jesus Christ and learn what he wants us to do. The holy ghost is just like the Liahona was for lehi and his family. We can if worthy, and by being faithful and having diligence we can follow the holy ghost and be a better servant, I know that to be true,

GOd bless america,

 In the name of Jesus Christ.

Love Elder B. Corbin

Week #56- HAPPY BIRTHDAY BRENAN, THE BIG 20!!!

brenan_2

THINKING OF YOU ON YOUR BIRTHDAY! ONE OF YOUR FAVORITE THINGS TO DO!

Hey Mom life is good! I got transferred on my birthday! I am now in Shreveport. My area is the Shreveport west area. I am companions with Elder Powell he is awesome! I’m excited to work with him and baptize. Our district is really good, and I love my district leader he is Elder Ah Ching he came out with me, we are homiez! I have turned 20!!! Transfer day was my bday! wooooh that is crazy…. time is going fast. I’m glad to move foward and enjoy the rest of my mission.. i hope all is well with Elder Kittrell he got an awesome companion, Elder Hainsworth, he will really bless Elder Kittrell it will be awesome! We had an awesome investigator in Pearl, his name is Milton, I’m gonna miss him, he is really awesome and came to church, I hope he gets baptized and becomes and active member of the church! So my gifts and presents will be like a week late or something. I am going to miss the people in pearl Ms, that was one of my favorite wards i ever served in! The only sad thing about being transferred is missing the people that you meet! Change is good, that is what God wants us to do, is to change and become what he wants us to become! But we must rely upon the atonement of Jesus Christ to accomplish this, through hard work and the grace of Jesus Christ we can become what God wants us to become! I know that we can only apply the atonement of Jesus Christ by being obedient to the LAWS and ORDINANCES of the gospel. Those have to be given through PRIESTHOOD AUTHORITY! Then we can apply the atonement and through the gifts of the spirit change and be endowed with Godly Attributes. Jesus Christ’s Church has been restored through the Prophet Joseph Smith, this is Gods church and this is his work. “For Behold, I am a disciple of Jesus Christ, the Son of God, I have been called of him, to declare his word among his people, that they might have eternal life” 3 nephi 5 :13

Love Elder b. Corbin

Hope all is well!
