What was the most threatening situation you witnessed or were involved in?

nn

There was a huge problem for the Argentine street gangs harassing us: The mission president brought in a BYU football player to serve with us. This guy was so big he drank three gallons of milk a day. As he and his companion were walking, a car came speeding towards them with the intention of running them down. The big guy shoved his companion, moved to the side and, as the car came beside him, he laid the strong arm of the Lord upon the roof of the Fiat, crushing it. Interestingly, we no longer encountered problems from the gangs.
