Hi I'm Kalvin

I was born in Philippines. I grew up in California. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I played American Football in high school. I like lifting weights, eating, and making art.

Why I am a Mormon

During my senior year in high school, I tore my ACL while playing football. All my dreams of hoping to play college ball disintigrated and the thought of it was more painful than the actual injury. I only had a borrowed testimony of the church at this point of my life. I hear people bear their testimony and how the Holy Ghost comforted them during their trials, so I decided to know if this church really is true. I prayed and studied the scriptures everyday to really find out for myself. The moment that I was reading Jesus' visititation in the American continent in 3 Nephi, I felt this peacefulness feeling that I have never felt before. It was the spirit and he gave me the answer to my question. The Book of Mormon really is true. That means that Joseph Smith really was called of God and that this church is the same church that Jesus Christ himself has created. Then the scripture 3 Nephi 5:13 popped in my head. "Behold I am a disciple of Jesus Christ, the Son of God. I have been called of him to declare his word among his people, that they might have everlasting life". God knows who I am and He knows that college ball was not for me. God chastens whom he loves because He sees us in an eternal point of view. That's when I decided to go on a mission. I know that God knows and loves each and everyone of us. I was not needed as a football player but as a missionary teaching and serving people who wants to hear of God's word. I believe that this church is true and that President Thomas S. Monson is a true prophet of God in these latter days. I leave these things in the name of Jesus Christ. Amen.

How I live my faith

I'm serving a mission in Fiji Suva.
