Uchtdorf returns to Big Spring

February 28, 2011

Big Spring is one of those places that seems to hold memories for a lot of people; even those who live a world away.

Dieter F. Uchtdorf, Second Counselor in the First Presidency of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints, made a special visit to Big Spring last weekend. Uchtdorf came back for his visit almost 50 years to the day that he first arrived in Big Spring.

“I was in the cockpit as we landed, on runway 17, and it was like a coming home,” Uchtdorf said. “I had taxied down that runway and taken off numerous times, learning how to do it better.”
