Presenting: Elder Penman!

Um hello my name is Cody Penman and i like to party. I Grew up in Roy, UT which is in the Ogden, UT area. I have been on a mission for a short time now, like a month, and i am LOVING it! Its the best thing i have done!! I love to play basketball and football and whatever sport looks fun. I love to hunt, fish and just be in the great outdoors. I come from a family of 9 kids. I am number 6. I love to spread the gospel with people so a mission is the thing for me! I love having fun and meeting new people. :)

I know that Jesus Christ came to this earth to die for me and for everyone that has lived on this earth and anyone that will live. I am so glad that he did that for me because I know that through him and his atoning sacrifice, i can become clean so i can live with my Heavenly Father after this life. I know that while He was here on earth, he preached the gospel of God and taught many good things. I came on a mission so i can teach those same teachings that Jesus Christ taught. I know that he had to power to heal the sick, I know that same power is restored upon the earth again. I know that Joseph Smith was a prophet called of God to restore the correct teachings of Jesus Christ and to bring the priesthood power back to the earth. I know Joseph Smith translated the Book of Mormon so we can read it today and feel that good feeling when we read it. I know that we have a living prophet today that is the one who talks to God on how to make our lives better. That to me is a great feeling, I love the fact that we have a prophet to help us and guide us in these days. I am on a mission so that i can share these things with people who dont know the truth. I am out here in California teaching people the correct teachings of Jesus Christ and helping them find true joy in their lives again. I am out here cause i know that the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints is the true chuch of Christ! I know that I am doing what the Lord wants me to do. Two years of serving God is nothing compared to what Jesus Christ did. I know that my life would not be the same if it wasn't for Him. I am out here because i want people to return to Heavenly Father again and i know they can only do that if they have faith in Christ and be baptized in His name and I am here to have peoples faith grow and to baptize those who accept our happy message.


  1. Thanx for sharing your great testimony! The Mission is a great thing!! Keep up the good and hard work!!

  2. Seriously- so much jealousy right now surrounding the artwork. It's probably not very Christ-like of me but I just can't seem to help jealous. Loved the blog post! Loved the analogy. I love analogies...
    And I LOVE LOVE LOVE that painting by Carl Bloch- I got to go see the exhibit BYU put on. AMAZING!
