Thurl Bailey was converted by missionaries in Italy?
True / and it wasn’t easy finding a font to fit him
Big T was drafted by the Utah Jazz in 1983 as the 7th pick in the draft. That is when he first learned more about Mormons. When he first showed up in Utah, he was like most other outsiders – he liked the beauty of the mountains and found the predominate religion a little odd. During his time in Utah he received 57 copies of the Book of Mormon from friends and fans, but he was never that interested until he met and married Sindi; She’s a member. He was then in Italy playing basketball in Europe and away from his family. He told his wife that he was interested in learning more about the church and the ward mission leader quickly sent the missionaries to his house. The rest, you could say, is history. He was baptized by his father-in-law in Milan in 1995 and he says it was one of the best moments in his life.
