Home Teachers at work, Carl and Clint. They seldom wear a white shirt and tie, but they will do anything for anyone at anytime. They know how to truly serve.
Our good friends, Butch and Linda.
This is the weather app on our phone. We have seen these storms coming right at us for a very long time now, say three weeks, with more on the way! We've had over 13 inches of rain in May already, with more on the way! Maybe we will float back to Mesa! (Seattle is looking pretty good right now)
The missionaries came over to play a rousing game of Wizard, along with eating homemade bread and ice cream.
Sister Lemmert is the winner of the game!
Every city has its name printed on a water tower. This is how you know through what city you travel.

The "Lamb of God" was a presentation of the All Saints Choir and orchestra from Oklahoma City. It is the musical presentation of the last year of Christ's life through music. We were so touched with the emotional and spiritual effect of this presentation at East Central University Concert Hall.Yesterday we attended a Mission Tour in Norman at our Stake Center. A mission tour is when a General Authority (a Seventy) tours different missions and teaches us how to be better missionaries. Our General Authority was Elder Lawrence E. Corbridge and his wife. He shook everyone's hand and what a wonderful man when you look into his eyes. His wife, and our mission president and his wife spoke also.

The most important thing for us to know is that through the Atonement of Jesus Christ, we can be forgiven of our sins and inherit eternal life by obedience to the laws and ordinances of the gospel; which include faith in the Lord Jesus Christ, repentance, baptism by immersion for the remission of sins, and the laying on of hands for the gift of the Holy Ghost, and enduring to the end. These ordinances are performed by priesthood authority restored to the earth through the prophet Joseph Smith. You can know this is true by reading and praying about the Book of Mormon.
Finally, Elder Lemmert broke his six month streak of "no golf." Elder Halls, the Zone Leader and master golfer himself, invited Elder Lemmert to play golf in Purcell with him, Elder Burdett, Elder Ott, and Elder Nibley. Sister Lemmert drove the golf cart and coached Elder Lemmert. Elder Halls was the best golfer, but guess who had the lowest score on the first nine? That's right.....Elder Lemmert! He earned his bragging rights. We enjoyed a great day!

|We took the Elders to do some calving, then went visiting members, then back to watch them. These are the bulls.|

|This was a beautiful home with a gorgeous harvest moon peeking over the trees. On evenings like this, Oklahoma is very beautiful!|
|The Elders are always a hit when they perform! They were performing a workout for girls, I think!|
