Week 23- Letter #24

Mon, Jul 23, 2012 at 1:37 PM Hola, ¿Como estan? Im glad this week went well for you all. Im glad that camp went well and that Eliza was able to have a friend with her for the camp. Im glad Brett and Conner are having some learning experiences and that Dad was able to find another job. Thats awesome. I have not received a letter from Jacob but it might be at the offices. I'm not sure. I asked one of my leaders if Grandma and Grandpa could write me from email and he said that that is fine. A couple questions for you all. When does Brett return from California? Have you guys recieved the Birthday cards (those are really usefull by the way. Thanks Mom and Aunt Shell!)? This week went pretty good. On Tuesday we went with V and she told us that M says that he is not sure if he wants to get married, and that it is a huge responsibility. We are trying to find a time when we can go and talk with him but they werent there this week when we went to the appointments later in the week. We also found a man last week who we challenged to read the Book of Mormon last week. He told us on Tuesday that he read a little bit of the Book of Mormon and went to bed one night and that in the early morning he woke up and was walking in the dark and tripped over a toy and hurt his elbow and was left with a scab there. He told us that it happened because he read the Book of Mormon the night before. We were able to explain to him about how Satan works and that he will do all he can to make people believe contrary to what is true. We challenged him to read again and he accepted. On Wednesday we went with a less active family and read a chapter in the Book of Mormon (Moroni 10), and then talked about what was said in the chapter to help them understand better. We also helped a sister paint her house. On Thursday we contacted a lot. We were able to find a couple people who are willing to listen about the Gospel. We shared with them the plan of salvation and they both accepted it pretty good. On Friday we helped the Sister finish painting her room that we helped her start. It is a bright yellow on 2 walls and the other 2 are solid orange. Quite the choice of colors, huh? On Saturday we talked to the Bishop about the plan that we have for the missionary work in the ward. We were able to talk a little bit about who we could focus on to bring them back to the church. On Sunday we went to church and we saw V there but not M. Overall a pretty good week. I am so grateful to be a missionary and I know that this is the true church and that Thomas S. Monson is the Prophet of God on the earth. I hope all continues to go well for you all. Les amo, Elder Corbin
