Hi I'm Cody

I'm a missionary in Canada, I love all things spanish, and I'm a mormon!

About Me

I am from Utah. I am 19. My favorite sport is basketball. My team is the Utah Jazz. I'm planning on going to college to become a physical therapist. I really love being in the wilderness. I love to fish, hike, and camp with my buddys. I am a missionary in Canada. Right now i am learning spanish. When it comes to spanish I love the food, the culture, the language, and most of all the people.

Why I am a Mormon

There are many reasons why I am a Mormon. The most important reason is because of the true joy this religion brings me. Everyone in the world is looking for joy. This Church is the end result of my search for happiness, as well as the result of many others who have wanted to find true peace, joy and happiness in their lives. The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints is the path to a happy life. Happiness that will last more than a weekend or a couple of years. I bear my witness as a member of this great church, that when our lives are based upon the teachings of Jesus Christ and his doctrines found in the Bible and Book of Mormon that there is not one thing in life too hard. Not one thing that through his power and love that we can't get through. I know for myself that this church is the restored church of Jesus Christ upon the earth today. It has the same organization that christ established with prophets and apostles, the same doctrines Christ taught on the earth, and will bring the same result Christ promised, eternal happiness with our father in heaven.

How I live my faith

I live my faith every day all times of the day. Everything I do is devoted for my faith and for helping others find the joy of living it as well. That is live the commandments that God has given us. Some people think that these commandments are restricting, but actually they enable our freedoms because we are not restricted by the consequences of sin.

What is the Book of Mormon?

Cody
The Book of Mormon is what seperates The Chuch of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints from the rest. There are thirty thousand different Christian denominations, and they all have something in common, The Bible. Why is that when it clearly says in this same book, "One Lord, One Faith, One Baptism?" (Eph 4:5) This is why we have the Book of Mormon, two be a second witness to solidify and back up the teachings in The Bible. The bible has only recently been put together since after the death of Christ. It is 66 books written by prophets and apostles and their dealings with god and the people upon the earth. The Book of Mormon is simply another one of these books. Christ is the savior of all mankind and ministered to the ancient inhabitants of America when he was here on the earth after his resurection. That is what this book contains. The teachings of Jesus Chirst, and nothing more. Show more Show less

Why do Mormon missionaries proselyte?

Cody
Mormon missionaries proselyte for one reason. To invite others to come unto Christ by helping them receive the restored gospel through faith in Jesus Christ and His Atonement, repentance, baptism, receiving the gift of the Holy Ghost, and enduring to the end. To help others to come to Christ. Let them know of the good news that they can be happy and return to live with their Savior and Father in Heaven once again. If this means walking miles and miles and knocking on doors for 2 years of their life. They will do it. Because they want everyone to taste of this amazing gospel, to see how it will change lives for the better, and direct them in a way to be ready for this opportunity. Show more Show less
