I understand your faith in this thing, Heidi. But-- I don't necessarily
think the Lord will "protect" us just because we are doing work in the
temple. We LDS people are always getting sick just as other people do. It
seems the Lord doesn't stop this from happening but actually deems that
we get sick-- you know-- those wonderful little trials that we get stuck
with? I want to avoid those trials if I can.

It isn't the temple workers hands that I am so concerned with but all the
hands he has been shaking. Germs get carried that way. It's just not
sanitary if you ask me. Something should be done about it.
