Week #85 – Find Real Joy

Clean up after floods in Farmerville branch. River overflowed!

Hey Mom, I am doing great, how can I complain about life when we have a wonderful savior Jesus Christ who loves me beyond comprehension? I do not think we can have anything to complain about. I am ecstatic that you saw Wyatt and Travis, that is awesome, I hope they are just on fire with life! I would love to live with them when I get back, that would so LEGIT. I just cant believe how awesome that would be. Sometimes we make plans, and God laughs. He has a sense of humor! We just need to have the mentality: Come what may, and love it!

Easter was awesome, we had a fast and testimony meeting. It was kind of weird because it did not feel like Easter fasting. But it was very spiritual and I am so thankful for the wonderful testimonies that were given! After church we took one of our recent converts in the branch with us to give several less-actives some candy and the sacrament. It was a great experience for all of us. Then later we went tracting and later we found this HUGE HOUSE. IT WAS HUGE I CANT BELIEVE HOW BIG IT WAS. As we drove by we were like we are knocking on that door, haha. So as we are walking up the huge driveway a ford truck is coming down. He roles down his window and talks to us for a short second. We gave him a hallelujah card and invited him to watch the two minute video.

The whole time I was thinking about the question Christ proposed, “What shall it profit a man if he should gain the whole world and lose his own soul? or what shall a man give in exchange for his soul?”

I was going to tell him if he wants to find real joy he needs to take seriously what we teach as missionaries. Later that evening we were talking to the Varners about it, we ate at there house for dinner, it was great. They told us that it was the CEO of Century Link. So we are going back there, and maybe we can teach him, I don’t know people like that are busy, so hopefully we can wake him up to reality. Haha

I can not believe March is gone! Haha lets goooo! Time is flying, I also can not believe that I get to skype home here soon! Wow, crazy! Life in the mission field is great. I wish we could all develop a deeper love for the savior and get our priorities straight… oh wait uhmm, WE CAN! YEHAW!

We need to develop a deep and abiding love for the savior! We do that by prayer, fasting, scripture study, and keeping his commandments.

It will bring true happiness into our life. We need to remember that life, is very, very fragile. Sometimes we think that nothing bad will happen, but each and everyday not only do new excitements await us, but so do problems. Who knows hopefully no tragedy will attend your life anytime soon, But i can testify that it will come, and how you act to that situation all depends on how you prepare for such events. You prepare by following the savior and finding new life in him.

May we all dream big, and think big, but start small, and change our lives and our lives will become a fountain of achievement, and we will look back on our lives and be able to say, I GAVE IT MY ALL, and there was not one more thing I could have done! That my friends is true joy, then may we all enter into the rest of Savior Jesus Christ.

May the Lord bless each and everyone of you this week.

*Remember*

“The object of prayer is not to change the will of God but to secure for ourselves and for others blessings that God is already willing to grant but that are made conditional on our asking for them. Blessings require some work or effort on our part before we can obtain them. Prayer is a form of work and is an appointed means for obtaining the highest of all blessings.”
-Bible Dictionary

Love for each and everyone one of you,

Elder Brenan Corbin
