Hi I'm Corey

I'm a Mormon.

About Me

Hi! I am a Missionary of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints. I was called to serve in Brazil, and have spent the last eight weeks learning Portuguese at the Provo MTC. My biggest hobby is learning new things. I'm constantly reading something or learning something. I find that constantly learning keeps my life interesting. I am 20 years old. In my life so far I have: -Worked 4 years at a Pizza Restaurant (two as a shift manager) -Worked 1 year for Sprint (cell phones) -Worked 1 year for the University of Oklahoma as a Recruiter for Engineering -Worked a total of 7 months w/ various construction companies -worked on C-130 stands, aluminum fencing, and general remodeling -Built a Tesla Coil -Co-Built a Submersible Robot -Captained the Hardware IEEE Robotics team for OU -Did Landscape design and re-landscaped my parent's backyard -Helped customize android phones and start sdx-developers.com -Worked on a team to create a satirical copy of my.mit.edu that made the front page of the MIT newspaper -Spent long nights discussing the theoretical physics that holds the universe together -Learned Spanish and Portuguese I'm not done yet. I'm a firm believer in Alma 26:12. Alone I am capable of next to nothing. With God on my side and guiding my steps, there is nothing that I cannot do. I will never stop doing what needs to be done.

Why I am a Mormon

Why I'm a Mormon. Hmm. You're probably wanting some grand experience or something. Truth is, I could list numerous times from my life where miraculous events have happened. However, if you don't understand the basics, none of the miracles will ever matter to you. Christ raised people from the dead in public yet they still killed Him. I am a Mormon, plain and simply, because it's true. It's all true. Anyone who says otherwise isn't paying attention, much like those there when Christ raised the dead and healed the sick. Throughout all time, whenever people get lost and confused, God reveals the full truth again to a prophet. I don't intend to argue about the logic of whether or not Christ's church got lost after His death. Look around!! He created one church and one church only. Today the world is confused. That's obvious. There are countless people everywhere screaming "Here's the truth" or "They're wrong". That's not my idea of calm and under control. In these situations, throughout all time, God calls a prophet. It happened. Joseph Smith was called of God to be a prophet. The best part? God doesn't expect you to believe this only because I'm telling you it. James 1:5 says He's willing to answer anyone who asks Him. So if you're confused; If you know, like I know, that the world is getting more and more lost every day; don't you want to know if there's truly a prophet on the earth? ASK GOD. I love learning. I love reading science books, magazines, and attending college classes. However, no secular knowledge can ever bring you the peace of mind I've found from the knowledge that my Redeemer LIVES. Not only does He live, but He continues to be an active part of our lives. This is HIS church on the earth again. You can find all the answers to every question you've ever had if you start learning about this church and His gospel and following His plan for you. Only thing is, He will never force you to do it. You have to take the time to learn.

How I live my faith

As I mentioned above, I'm currently a missionary. This is the absolute best way to show our faith. "Greater love hath no man than this, that a man lay down his life for his friends." I'm not dying, but I am choosing to spend two years of my life devoted to teaching others about this gospel. For the next two years, I will spend all of my time teaching and helping others. Why? I teach because I love you. I teach because I love this gospel. I teach because, in reality, there is no message more important for you to hear than the one I (or someone like me) will bring to your door. I teach because, if Christ was here today, that's what He would be doing. What would He teach? Exactly what I will teach. That HE LIVES. That His church exists again on the earth. That YOU can know for YOURSELF if it's true. That you can follow His example by having faith, repenting, being baptized and receiving the gift of the Holy Ghost. If you do that, you can inherit the highest glories of heaven and live forever with God the Father, His Son Jesus Christ, your family, and your friends. Really, who wouldn't want that? That is Christ's message. My job is to share it. So please, when a missionary knocks on your door, let them in. Why? Because they are, in very truth, a representative of Christ. Their message is one that Christ wants you to hear. If Christ was at your door, wouldn't you let Him in? Well this is your chance. We're knocking. Now open the door ;-)
