After leaving Denver, there were still blizzard-like conditions until we reached the Kansas border. Must be a Wyoming and Colorado thing! Bad weather is their specialty.
We drove to Hutchinson, Kansas where Bob served a mission about fifty years ago. He was excited to see the town and what had become of it.
He's kept in touch with some of his converts. Many of them moved to Utah, and some of them have passed away.
This is the home of Brother Blanchfield who died many years ago. The building is abandoned, but still standing.
Another convert family moved to Utah and has stayed strong in the faith. There are over a hundred members in the family now. One of the grandsons lives and works as a fire fighter in Hutchinson. We drove by his house. He was at work, but we met his wife and sons. His sweet grandmother that Bob baptized has passed away, but we met her great grandsons. One will be ordained a deacon next week. I'm sure she is watching from Heaven.
This is a chapel they meet in now.
