Hi I'm Corben Brown

I'm a Mormon

About Me

My name is Corben Brown, I'm a New Zealander and am a missionary serving in the Australia Sydney North mission. Probably one of the most quiet Maoris you will meet, but love talking about things that are spiritual or uplifting with others. Before my mission I was a high school student and studied Music, Photography, Dance, Chemistry, Biology, Physics, English and Calculus. I taught Dance and found a love for Hip Hop and Piano. After my mission I intend on going to University to study either "Medicine" or "Music and Dance teaching". I love music and learning about it, but feel that I can help people more through medicine. I have a great love for the Gospel and love sharing and teaching what I know to be true.

Why I am a Mormon

I grew up in the Church, my parents are very strong members in the Church and they taught me the gospel my whole life. Growing up I always wanted to do whats right and I trusted my parents a lot.I was taught by my parents to always turn to the Lord at all times, because some difficulties weren't that easy to overcome, I was able to exercise my faith very young and receive a witness by the Holy Ghost that Heavenly Father was there. As I applied the principles of the scriptures in my life and saw that I was receiving answers to my prayer, that strengthened my testimony. I have a love for the message of eternal families and have found joy as I have learned more about my faith. There is too many things that have happened in my life that make it difficult to ever deny my faith. The Lord has blessed me growing up with many spiritual experiences that have helped me to know that the Church was true very young. And now all I want to do is keep strengthening my testimony of this gospel and becoming stronger as I increase my relationship with God. I have no doubts that the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints is the true restored gospel of Jesus Christ.

How I live my faith

As of now I am currently serving my mission and I am trying to get better at teaching people and developing the skills needed to be an effective missionary. I have had a couple of callings more surrounded to music such as Ward pianist and stake Priesthood pianist, also being a ward missionary. Everyday I strive to better myself as a member and serving the Lord has definitely helped me develop those Christ like attributes we all need. I always want to be obedient to the commandments that the Lord has given me and sometimes it can be difficult, but I always remember that when I put my faith in the Lord, everything will be ok. I live my faith by trusting our Lord, than he can direct us to the places we need to be. As my testimony continues to grow stronger and deeper, I develop more love to serve my Heavenly Father.
