Patrick and Nancy Latta were called to Medjugorje in 1993. Patrick was a highly successful car dealership owner in Canada, who started at the bottom washing cars and worked his way up to be a top car salesman who â€œnobody could outsell,â€ in his own words. Nancy was a highly successful lawyer in Canada.
According to their testimony, Patrick’s life of godlessness changed when Nancy’s brother gave them a book on the messages of Medjugorje. Patrick was not interested in the book, so he handed the book to Nancy and she returned it to him saying, â€œHere, my pagan husband, you throw them away and it’s on your conscience.â€ The word â€œconscienceâ€ would not let him throw the book away. He opened it and looked for the shortest message in the book. It said, â€œI call you to conversion for the last time.â€ Then something â€œhappenedâ€ and their lives changed forever.
Nancy, was Fr. Jozo Zovko’s translator for many years, and she to this day, translates the Medjugorje messages given through the visionaries from Croatian to English.
