Missionary Experiences

*This cute couple, Santa and Sister Clause did not come from the North Pole but they live in Florida--and have visited many gatherings in their Santa attire for years. (Right now they are wearing missionary badges--serving a humanitarian mission.) Their slogan is, "Keeping Christ in Christmas". Notice the Red Silverado--a bright eye catching advertisement to call for bookings. They share the gospel wherever they are with a message about the restored gospel and a reminder to visit I love their unique approach.

*Elder and Sister Bean were walking out of Home Depot in a bit of a hurry when a clean cut well dressed gentleman approached them and said to Elder Bean, "You look like you are a man of God. I have been praying that the Lord would send someone to help me." He gave his sad story which boiled down to needing money for gasoline for his car. We were in too big of a hurry to actually take him to the pump so we gave him a pass along card, some money, an took down his telephone information so the missionaries give him a call.

*Wednesday evening we took the Kissimmee Ward Spanish and English Sister missionaries to dinner at a Mexican Restaurant "Suzon Latino". The owners are very friendly and know the missionaries and has even come to church. We had a great dinner together--then we asked them if we could leave a message about Jesus Christ, which they agreed. One of the Sisters who has a beautiful voice suggested we sing, "Nearer My God To Thee" in Spanish. We had been the only ones eating but in the mean time two other tables had filled up so we had more of an audience. There were six of us singing and it sounded beautiful even though two of us were singing in English. When we were finished everyone clapped. The owners wife being the cook thanked us so much--she said it gave her chills. I told her that feeling was the Holy Spirit. We left so elated--true happiness only the gospel can bring.
