On the bright side

We took our son, David, to the Missionary Training Center in Provo, Utah, on April 20. After dropping him and his mother off, my daughter and I were walking across the parking lot when I heard someone call my name. I didn't know who it was and didn't recognize him for a moment.

As we stopped to greet him, we found it was Steven K. Bullock, the missionary who had baptized me about 32 years ago in the New England States Mission. We we thrilled to see each other.Upon inquiring why he was at the Missionary Training Center, he told me that he was sending his son, Jonathan, on a mission. Further conversation revealed that his son and mine were both going to the Argentina Buenos Aires South Mission.

About four days later, we received a letter from our son telling us that Elder Jonathan Bullock and he were assigned as companions, some 32 years after Elder Bullock's father had baptized me. It was a remarkable and wonderful thing to have happen.
