Two Mormon missionaries performed an act of kindness in Washington, D.C., on Monday.
Matt Whitlock, the communications director for Sen. Orrin Hatch, captured footage of two missionaries for The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints having lunch at Union Station when an act of service caught his attention.
Missionary Brendan Bailey, son of Thurl “Big T” Bailey, who is a legendary former player for the Utah Jazz and a broadcaster for the team, offered a man money while in Washington, despite missionaries' limited budget.

Bailey, who attended American Fork High School, received offers from Connecticut, Gonzaga, Michigan and San Diego State, according to ESPN.
He originally committed to Arizona State, where his sister, BreElle Bailey, played volleyball last year but decommitted after the firing of ASU coach Herb Sendek. BreElle Bailey also had a change of plans, as she transferred to NC State, where she will spend her final season of eligibility playing for her father's alma mater.
