Elder Coletti's Letter 2/26/17:
Somebody call 119, Taoyuan's fire burning with that 洗禮! ooowhoaaa! Hahaha Elder Welker and I just made up a song;) Sorry to everyone that doesn't read Chinese!:) 洗禮 means XiLi, which means baptism! Elder Welker, Elder Lin, and I had another baptism this week. His name is Sam (葉劭涵)! He is honestly one of the most prepared individuals I have ever met. Back in November, a missionary gave him an English Track, and he decided to go to English Class and check it out! He really likes English and wanted to learn more. After that, he met with missionaries and started to change. When he first heard a prayer in English Class, he decided from that day on, he was going to say a prayer every night. He did. Sam is one of the most humble men I have ever met. He is so loyal and loving to his friends. Before he was baptized, he was saving money to go on a mission himself. He just absolutely loves missionaries! He has a bunch of friends in the ward now. All of the members LOVE Sam. They always ask about him. I am honestly so grateful to have met Sam. He is one of my best friends.
Counts Your Many Blessings. God makes up the difference for our weaknesses. He always does. Regardless of what you have done in the past, regardless of where you have done wrong, God is not giving up on you. As long as we have the desire and the intent to change, God will shower the sky with blessings. God is good.....so, so good!
