Hi I'm Cody Haas

I grew up in Bellingham Washington. I'm currently a full time Missionary and hope to be a Radiologist after. Im a Mormon!

About Me

Hi my name is Cody. I've grown up in the church and am so grateful for the examples that I have in my life. I am the youngest of 5 boys, as a result I've learned to hold my own and never back down. That's helped me keep my standards strong and my vision clear. I played Baseball and football at my high school for Sehome High School (Go Mariners)! But I also played basketball through freshman year and enjoy that as well. I am interested in the medical field and will persue that one day. I have been called to serve in the Germany Berlin Mission reporting December 12, 2012. When I return I will go to school. I hope to be a Radiologist one day. I'm always staying positive, I don't want to waste a day thinking about what could be better but instead what the miracles are in my life.

Why I am a Mormon

The church has guided and directed me to be a hardworking, honest, and virtuous person. I guess you could say that I've had the stereotypical life in the church. Babtized at 8 ordained a deacon at 12, teacher at 14, priest at 16 and an elder just before leaving for my mission to Berlin Germany. But I too struggled and found my own way to the testimony I have today. I have 4 brothers and I am the youngest. But we too have endured struggles and had to find our own answers. By prayer and service we have all come to know the truth and the possibilities this life has to offer us. We have a father in heaven who loves us and cares about us. With the church and this knowledge I am a much happier person and the right choices are much easier to make because I know where I want to end up after this life. The joy I have felt while reading the scriptures, praying and feeling God's spirit each day is not comparable to worldly things. His gospel is about finding answers and happiness in this life. No matter what may come our way there is a reason for it all and as we come to him we can grow and become greater, become perfected through christ. The greatest blessing of all. I know anyone who seeks will find, that is our promise from the lord.

How I live my faith

Currently I am serving as a Full time missionary. (You know those guys in the suit who probably directed you to this page? Yep that's me!) Never in my life have I spent more then 5 minutes only thinking of other people. But now I get to devote 2 years of my life to helping others find the joy that I have found. That joy is only through Christ and it's those guys in the suits that know the way to him. As you come to him you will feel his love and a light come into your life that you have never felt before. That's called the Holy ghost. By way of his spirit god guides us to the happiness he sent us here to earth to find. And after this life we can return to him if we follow his spirit and his son Jesus Christ. The way to true happiness is by following Christ example and becoming more like him which is my constant struggle everyday.
