WASHINGTON, DC — Two missionaries for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints were caught performing a random act of kindness Monday.
Matt Whitlock, Communications Director for Sen. Orrin Hatch, noticed the missionaries having lunch at Union Station.
He tweeted that he was impressed one of the missionaries gave a man some money even though they keep to a tight budget.
Whitlock later discovered the man’s name is Brendan Bailey.
His father is Thurl “Big T” Bailey, a legendary player for the Utah Jazz and a longtime broadcaster for the team.
Sindi Bailey, Thurl’s wife, told Fox 13 Brendan has been serving in the Washington DC North mission for 15 months. He plans to play basketball at Marquette University in Milwaukee after his mission. Sitting with Brendan is Elder Torgerson from Richfield, Utah.
