Hi I'm Antony den Dulk

I am a computer programmer who grew up in South Africa. I am married and have 3 children. I am Mormon.

About Me

I love to read Fantasy and Science Fiction books. As a child in South Africa I found Doctor Who through books since it was not on television and it remains my favourite TV-show of all time. Most memorable books from my youth outside of Doctor Who are David Eddings - The Belgariad series and Susan Cooper's - The Dark is Rising series. I have worked in a job as a programmer and am now expanding out into the Business and Investment world. I remain an avid reader though I currently tend to read a lot more religious books than I did in my youth.

Why I am a Mormon

I joined the Church after an experience with reading the Scriptures and Prayer. I was asked to read and pray as an experiment for a week and during that process I felt a feeling I had never felt before that ran from my head and down through my whole body, accompanying that feeling was the assurance that Joseph Smith was a prophet of God and the knowledge that I needed to be baptized. On the day of my baptism I had a further experience where I felt the love of God, it is impossible to describe how vast His love for us is - I found a text in the Book of Mormon where Nephi tries to describe it that I think is the best way I have found to date, it can be found in 2 Nephi 4:21 and reads as follows: "He hath filled me with his love, even unto the consuming of my flesh." My testimony remains strong that God exists and is mindful of us. He blesses me with encouragement and peace as I seek Him. As the psalmist says, "God is my strength and refuge."

How I live my faith

I joined the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints in 1994 and served a mission from 1995 to 1997. I have served as: - Teacher of the 14-16 year old - Teacher of the Elder's Quorum - a councillor for the Young Men Quorum - a councillor in the Elder's Quorum - President of the Elder's Quorum Currently I am the first councillor in the Elder's Quorum as well as a teacher in the Elder's Quorum.
