Hope through the Atonement of Jesus Christ

“Moroni confirmed: “What is it that ye shall hope for? Behold I say unto you that ye shall have hope through the atonement of Christ” (Moro. 7:40–41; see also Alma 27:28). Real hope, therefore, is not associated with things mercurial, but rather with things immortal and eternal!”
—Elder Neal A. Maxwell, “Hope through the Atonement of Jesus Christ”
Hello Family and Friends! Life has been great this last week. One TRANSFER LEFT! WHAT! Time is going quick and soon Ill be home! I hope all of you enjoyed your independence day! We sure did! We went to Bro. Webb’s and fished in his pond. It was fun. WE did not get anything big but it was a blast. Then later that evening we ate at the Britt’s house, it was fun. We had hambugas. We also went on exchanges this last week and that was fun. I went with Elder Singoma! Also we went out a lot with a elder preparing to go on his mission. His name is Mason Falvey, he is legit. He has been going out with us a ton, and is leaving on his mission to Logan UT soon. He will do great. this past week was really hot, the high was 106……….. death
SO with transfers today! Elder Mcdougal and I will be staying together in Brookhaven. we figured as much, it will be a blast. We are working hard to find and teach. Hopefully by the time I leave here this area will be booming. We are getting this place lit. It is amazing to see the Lords hand in it all.
Sometimes we think we are not doing enough or that we are failures because we don’t always see the impact we have. Satan is the one that tries to discourage and tell us we are failures, we impact others more than we know. Even if that does not result in baptisms or people coming back to church.
President Thomas S. Monson said, “Just over a year ago, I was interviewed by the Church News prior to my birthday. At the conclusion of the interview, the reporter asked what I would consider the ideal gift that members worldwide could give to me. I replied, “Find someone who is having a hard time or is ill or lonely, and do something for him or her.””
This weeks theme is to stay happy, and share the light of the gospel just by being there for someone. The lord wants us to be happy and we can be as we live his gospel!
I pray for each and everyone of you, stay strong, healthy, and energetic this week
Elder Brenan Corbin
