Pacita was baptized!

Elder Coletti's Letter 4/30//17:

This week was so much fun!  Shout out to my little brother on getting his mission call to Cambodia! Is that in Africa?;)  haha
We had a sweet Phillipina lady named Pacita Hung get baptized this week!  She was found 3 transfers ago.  Her brother was contacted on the street by missionaries, and he was willing to listen to them and bring them to his house.  The missionaries went over to his house and rang the doorbell.  Eventually Pacita answered the door and wasn't too interested in the message.  The missionaries got in contact with the other Phillipinos in the English ward, and had them make a nice Phillipino meal, and then they brought it to her house!  After that, Pacita was very moved by that act of kindness and she was willing to listen to the message.  It was pretty cool.  It started out with Pacita's brother, but as the lessons went on, Pacita progressed a lot faster than her brother.  Pacita is one of the nicest ladies in the world.  She is so much fun to be around.  She takes care of her mom, who only speaks Taiwanese (they have been in Taiwan for a while;)).  Pacita speaks English, Taiwanese, Tagolog, and Chinese.  Conversion is so real.  She started off having no interest.  Absolutely none.  But through a simple act of kindness her heart was opened, and she eventually was converted.  Serve others.  Open their hearts.  Open their life to the gospel.  Love you!

Elder Coletti
