Hi I'm Cody Polvado-Jakubczak

I am from Las Vegas, Nevada. I am serving in the Iowa Des Moines mission. I'm a mormon.

About Me

I am 19 years old and have lived in Las Vegas for the majority of my life. I have an amazing family which consists of 6. I attended Legacy highschool and I participated in sports for all four years. I played football from freshman year to senior year and ran track my junior and senior year. I have a passion for sports and went on to Utah Valley University to run track my freshman year. I lived in glenhood in provo with some friends (I recommend it because less rules). After one year of college I decided to go on a mission which is where I am not. I'm serving in the Iowa des moines mission and I'm loving it. Just started and won't return until June 2017!

Why I am a Mormon

I'm a mormon because I see how it blesses my family and my life. Being a mormon comes with a lot of sacrifices and commitments but it is all to be closer to our heavenly father. I'm grateful for the principles it instills and how great of a life you can live if you live it.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by being that example to others. Having the morals and principles of this belief definitely stands out to the world and it's great! I have a lot of friends that aren't mormon and they are my best friends and I still do all the same things as them and go out to all things with them, but having that mutual respect for eachother is awesome. I haven't really had many callings due to my little participation in church I'd assume but I've definitely grown closer and been more active in recent years. I'm out serving a mission and loving it and it's definitely been the best decision I have made!

Why do Mormons believe in the Bible?

Cody Polvado-Jakubczak
The bible is a record of gods dealings with the people in basically the middle east. Why the middle east you ask? Because only in Jerusalem would they crucify Christ and that was the only way that he could fulfill his purpose. The bible is records of god just as the book of mormon is. The bible all though it's not perfect still contains records that are valuable to our salvation. With the book of mormon working hand in hand it complements it and strengthens it! Show more Show less
