WELCOME HOME ELDER HUTCHINGS

SWEET ANTICIPATION, BITTER DISAPPOINTMENT. We were so eager to meet Elder Ryan during his layover in Atlanta, coming home from Switzerland. Jake had quit work a day early to travel the 4 hours home in time to see Ryan. We had set aside the whole day in order to be there in time after an hour drive to the airport. We waited for a good hour when the phone rang---could it be Ryan? YES!!!! It was and it was so, so good to hear his voice. Then, he delivered the bad news. It had taken so long to go through customs that he didn't have time to come out to see his 2 nephews that he's never met and chat with his brother and sister-in-law. Were we disappointed? Absolutely. Will we survive? Not until we get to see him next Friday. We love you, Ryan, and are so proud of you!! We are SOOOOO excited to see you next Friday!!!!
