His name is Matt Relei. You could never find him without a smile on his face, a protien bar and at least one bottle of Gatorade. He's famous for his kindness, portrayed here (amid my moaning and groaning--skip all that). He's showed up at my house with all kinds of fun things at the most random times: Sombraros, fake flowers, kites, peeps (Most people hate them, but he knew they were my favorite) and even flowers for me on our first date. Who would expect this from a big, bad BYU football player? Definitely not me.
"It is amazing to see the hand of the Lord in the work. He has truly laid the path and we are following. The mission is great. It really is. I am so glad that I decided to serve. It is amazing what the world does to people. Their thoughts and ideas only focus on things of the world and not anything more. What the world doesn’t know is that we have a potential that is celestial. We are of a divine lineage. We one day can be divine. I hope all this doesn’t sound just weird or like sci-fi because before the mission I probably would have just let this go in one ear and out the other but hopefully for whoever reads this meditates for a minute on this. Keep the future in mind. Don’t just get lost in the day-to-day rat race. Be the cat and be one step ahead."
His silly analogy next to heartfelt concern for the world represent him perfectly.
Boys, this is the kind of missionary you should be.
Girls, this is the kind of man you deserve to marry.
