Elder Lemmert's Birthday! WooHoo
For Ralph's birthday, we went to Oklahoma City on Monday, our Prep Day and visited the OKC Memorial commemorating the bombing of the Federal Building 20 years ago. I didn't really know if I wanted to see it, but the experience was humbling, emotional, and uplifting in the fact that so many wonderful people came to the aid of others. The memorial is presented in a very respectful fashion.
We stayed in OKC and the next attended the Oklahoma City Temple in Yukon, OK. We enjoyed the experience and travelled home on Tuesday, of course stopping along the way to eat lunch, and then later to Braum's to eat ice cream. We really enjoyed our two days rejuvenating ourselves to continue our missionary work in Ada.
All I want for my birthday is an Oklahoma State University Cowboys shirt! (OSU)

The time that everything changed
Overlooking the lawn where there are memorial chairs for every person that died in the bombing. The area is where the Federal building once stood.
The "survivor tree" by the area where the survivors were brought out of the buiding to the lawn to receive help.
