Hi I'm Denish Selvan

I'm half Indian and Pinoy. I was born and raised in Malaysia. I love singing and the playing guitar and I'm a Mormon

About Me

I live with both my parents with four siblings with me being third.I love sports especially soccer. I watch the English Premier League every once in awhile. I like to keep myself fit and healthy. I'm a gym enthusias and also a gamer I spend my free time gaming on my playstation. I love photography because it defines beauty all around us. I have a desire to travel around the world with the love of my life while capturing special moments.

Why I am a Mormon

I remember when growing up I would follow my relatives to worship idols. I want to do good in this life and I have a strong belief in God. But I don't know who he was neither was the purpose of this life. My mom was Catholic so I followed her and we went to different churches. I was raised in a good way knowing good from bad. My mom made a friend with a mormon while a friend invited her for a gathering. They met and became friends after that. She taught her the gospel and she was baptized into the LDS Church. She brought me and my siblings and we grew up in the LDS faith. Were weren't so active, I still believed in the Church and know it to be true. I prayed sometimes and study the book of mormon. But I couldn't get baptize because my dad wouldn't allow.Asking for his approval throught the years and his answer was always no.Eventually we all fell away I remember then hearing awful things about the Church and it shocked me to the core.I was exposed to anti-mormon material. The feeling was terrible knowing that everything you belived in was a lie. I was invited by this girl at church. Actually I developed feelings for her and she would always ask me to come church every sunday and she'll be waiting. Well I din't want to let her down so I came. But as always everyone urge me to get baptize it wast'n my fault it's just that I couldn't get my dad permission and I din't have a testimony. Yes, a testimony I wanted it so bad. I put aside all negativity and dedicated myself to find the truth. I prayed to God and asked him if this Church is true help me find my testimony and soften my father's heart so he would let me get baptize. One by one I was able to disprove all the false notions about the Church and my faith build. I read the Book of Mormon again and the spirit testify to me that it was true. I finally had a testimony. Then when I asked my Dad again he finally said yes and his heart was soften and I knew that God answered my prayer and that this church was true.

How I live my faith

I go to church every sunday. I attend worship in the Ipoh Malaysia District . I dedicate myselfy to daily prayer and scripture study. I love to help those in need and give meaningful service. I constantly strive to live the gospel standards and I love my savior Jesus Christ. Even when my whole family is not mormon I hope that one day we could all be sealed in temple and dwell in the presence of our Heavenly Father. I graduated from four years of seminary and currently enrolling in institute. I belive that increasing our knowledge in the gospel helps us better prepare to meet with God again.
