Kathy was baptized!

Elder Coletti's Letter 2/5/17:

This week we had a baptism!  Her name is 胡佩君 (Hu Pei Jun) or Kathy. Her story is a little interesting.  Her family is already members.  They've all been baptized before, even Kathy.  However, her baptismal records were lost.  This was her proof that she was baptized at 8.  Her family has been LA most her life.  Our Bishop asked missionaries to work on getting her and her family reactivated and to baptize Kathy again. Missionaries have been trying to get into contact with Kathy since July, but it hasn't worked out.  She usually doesn't answer her phone, or won't show up to appointments, etc.  One day, Elder Lin and I decided to just go to their home.  We went to the home and we called the home phone.  The mom answered and said they can't meet right now, but they could meet the next day.  We met Kathy the next day, and she started her journey back to church.  She always believed in our church, and she knew it was right, but she said she was just to lazy to come to church, read scriptures, etc.  We helped her regain her faith to act, and we helped bring her back to church.  We have also helped the mom come back.  We are still working with the dad and Kathy's other family members.  Kathy said that she is so grateful God has given her a second chance to be baptized and to rekindle her fire.  She is super fun.  We are so happy for her and for her conversion.

People all need second chances.  We need to help them Rekindle their Fire and Relight their Faith.  Love you all!  Transfers are this week.......We will see what is going on in TaoYuan!
