Hi I'm Cody

I grew up in Georgia. I'm a full time missionary serving in the Tahiti, Papeete mission. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am currently serving as a full time missionary for the Church in the Papeete, Tahiti mission. I am a huge soccer fan. I have been playing since I could walk. I enjoy spending time with friends and family. I like meeting new people and making friends. I love paintball, trail riding, and being out on the lake. I am roller coaster enthusiast and have ridden more rides than I can count. I just finished my first year of college. I'm working toward a degree in biology. At college, I played for an intramural futsal (indoor soccer). I enjoy all sports and I find joy in exercising and staying fit.

Why I am a Mormon

I was born into this church but I continue to be active because of the continual blessings I receive in my life and the wonderful spirit that I feel through this gospel. I know that when I am making good choices and working to be the best person I can be, I will be blessed with the spirit of the lord and continue to receive guidance in my life necessary to return to him in heaven. I know that through this gospel I can spend the rest of my life, on this earth and in the life after, with my future spouse and be able to see family members and loved ones. This church provides a way to return to live with my Heavenly Father in peace and I am willing to do whatever it takes to achieve that happiness.

How I live my faith

I now have the opportunity to share my testimony of the Gospel with those around me because I'm currently serving a mission. I have had a few leadership callings in the church. During college I taught a Sunday school class and was often blessed by the spirit and guidance I felt when preparing to teach lessons. I now hold a leadership calling in my ward. In this calling I look for ways to help and serve other members. I have been home teaching members with a companion since I was twelve. I try to offer service to others as often as I can.
