Week 5- Letter #6

Fri, Mar 16, 2012 at 10:11 AM Hola,
How are things going for everyone?? It was good to hear from you. So Brett and Conner will both have their licenses by the end of the month huh? That's pretty cool. That's pretty awesome that Brett has almost completed his Eagle. I can't send pictures because they have the computers highly secured, but if you want me to send you guys the memory card, I would be glad to do that.
That's crazy that Grandma and Grandpa are leaving that soon. So whats the plan for Jeff and Shell? Sounds like you had some pretty fun birthday celebrations. So the Geo battery died? Have they tried to tighten the bolt on top of the battery? Yeah that would be pretty cool if I could get the feedback from Thomas and the loss of his dad. That would be really hard. It sounds like he is placed in a good spot though with his companion being in the same boat with the loss of his dad. But it was Grandma Corbin's birthday? how did that go? Well that's pretty cool mom that you are picking up the piano. That should be awesome. As far as the fasting weekly thing, we were told to not have our family fast more that necessary. So no need to fast every week. Thank you though.
I just wanted to share an experience that we had with teaching a "Progressing Investigator" named Ariel. We taught him a little about prayer and how to pray and then at the end of the lesson we asked him to pray a couple lessons ago and he wouldn't do it. We tried a couple more times asking if he would pray but he kept coming up with excuses of why he couldn't pray. Ending the lesson we just decided to say the prayer. Astonished we thought of what we could do to get him to pray next lesson. We thought the next lesson we would just teach him only about prayer. Cringing, at the end of the lesson we asked him to pray, and with a little bit of hesitation he began to pray. It was an awesome experience.
I would just like to bear my testimony that I know that this is the true gospel and that we are so blessed to have it in our lives. I know that Joseph Smith was a true prophet and that he did restore the gospel to the earth. I love you guys, I pray for you and hope you all are doing well.
Elder Corbin
