Hey Family!!! This week was awesome! It was really spiritually rewarding and it was really fun also! The missionary work in Farmerville, LA is going great! I love the mission, just making the best of it these last few months! it is crazy to think I have such a short time left! I think I will get transferred to my last area soon, but I am uncertain if it will be this transfer on April 12 or the next one. General Conference was awesome, my favorite talks were from President Dieter F. Uchtdorf, Bonnie L. Oscarson, and Jeffrey R. Holland. They were fantastic I loved it so much!
This week was awesome. On Wednesday we had exchanges, I went with Elder Rawi he is from Vanuatu around Fiji. He is funny. We did a lot of fun things. We ran into a alligator turtle on the side of the road so we got out and took a picture of it, it was crazy looking. Some members gave us root beer floats, we had some lessons with some investigators. It was awesome. We also found some people in the ghetto and we played basketball with them. Elder Rawi has never played bball so it was basically me verses them. WE WON! 😉 16-14 we were going to 15 it was wayyy fun, a good way to do missionary work.
In Life we sometimes think that we cant do something, or that greatness is out of our reach. That the Atonement of Jesus Christ is for everyone but us, that we are just simply to far out of its reach, that just maybe we can change or maybe out of luck we can be forgiven. Maybe one day I will find the strength to change or be happy. Just maybe one day it will change. THAT IS SATAN, don’t let him sell you such negative thinking. Maybe you have doubt in your life, you don’t know what is going to happen in the future and it scares you, maybe you are worried about what people say about you.
Let me give you some advice. GET THE LOSERS OUT OF YOUR LIFE. THE PERSON WHO YOU SHOULD BE CONCERNED WITH IS YOUR HEAVENLY FATHER, HIS THOUGHTS are the only ones that matter about you.
Don’t think down on yourself, you are your own enemy! YOU NEED TO REALIZE that we need to be positive, life is amazing we can make it amazing if WE CHOOSE to succeed, if we choose have a POSITIVE ATTITUDE! What do you really have to complain about! YOU HAVE NOTHING TO COMPLAIN ABOUT COME ON are you kidding me!!! ARE YOU KIDDING ME! REMEMBER THE SAVIOR HE DIED FOR YOU!
He suffered for you! HE loves you! WE HAVE the greatest opportunity anyone could ask for! But this opportunity means absolutely nothing if we don’t take advantage of it in the lifetime of this opportunity!
COWARDS GIVE UP, WEAKLINGS SAY ITS TOO HARD!
ITS NOT TO HARD!
The secret is this, its not the system, its not your weakness its not your trials, its not your problems, it is your attitude towards those problems. If you are not happy if you are not successful if you have doubts, it is because you are not making the sacrifice for obedience to God.
Anyone can be a loser and anyone can give up, BUT YOU GOT TO HARNESS YOUR WILL TO SUCCEED!
THE BIGGEST ENEMY YOU HAVE IS YOURSELF!
YOU CAN SUCCEED YOU CAN HAVE THAT BUSINESS YOU WANT, YOU CAN BE THE PERSON GOD WANTS YOU TO BE, BUT YOU HAVE TO WANT IT, YOU HAVE TO PRAY FOR IT, YOU HAVE TO STUDY, YOU HAVE TO DO THE THINGS YOU KNOW YOU SHOULD DO!
BROTHERS AND SISTERS FRIENDS AND FAMILY! YOU CAN DO ALL THINGS THROUGH CHRIST WHO STRENGTHENS US!!!!!!
NEVER GIVE UP, WE ARE ALREADY HURT, WE ALREADY SUFFER, SO GET A REWARD FOR IT, THE DOTS WILL CONNECT DOWN THE ROAD!
NEVER GIVE UP!
IT WILL MAKE ALL THE DIFFERENCE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Keep your covenants, have a positive attitude and do what is hard, and have hope!
Love each and everyone of you!
Elder Brenan Corbin
