Recently, a Chick-fil-A in Virginia posted a picture on their Facebook page of six LDS missionaries ankle-deep in the snow. Some of these missionaries seem to be used to the cold weather and wintry conditions, being outside in a hoody and shorts. Proud mother Samantha Burila spoke up that her son was the one in the shorts and VCU sweatshirt. A Utah-native, this Elder apparently isn't deterred by the snow.
And neither were the rest. Apparently, the missionaries spent their P-day shoveling out and pushing stuck cars up an icy hill near the restaurant. In wonderful missionary fashion, they put everything on hold to help others. And it looks like they might have gotten some free refreshments out of it.
Share this!!! These guys are serving their church by giving back to the community for the next 2 years! They were Awsm today! In the 10 mins we were waiting they helped several cars get unstuck! #faithrestoredPosted by Colleen Murphy on Monday, January 25, 2016
A video of their service was posted to one of their beneficiaries', Facebook pages, and Chick-fil-A's shout out was reposted on LDS Missionaries' Facebook page.
