And the adventures continue

We got rear-ended on Thursday.  We were driving along, when the car in front of us decided to stop quickly so that they could turn right.  So I slowed quickly too.  Unfortunately the man behind us was not able to stop.  He started to slow, but hit a patch of water, and just kept going.  We were a little shooken up, but we are fine. 
However, our car needs a lot of help.  The trunk won't close, and the back bumper has popped out.  I am sure that we are going to be spending a lot of time getting to know car mechanics.  {we already have, the people at pep boys recognize us by sight, and have our car number memorized}.
And then I ate a habanero pepper.  It was the hottest thing that I have ever eaten.  I knew it was hot, when I ate it, I just didn't expect it to be that hot.  It burned going down, and then my whole face started to burn.  It worked it's way in a circular motion out from my mouth.  I was sweating, and my sweat would burn.  It felt like my skin was literally on fire.  When it reached my eyes, I was just dying.  The tears that would come out (I couldn't control them they just came) would burn as they left.  I would take napkins and try to soak up all the sweat and tears before it could spend any time on my face, because it hurt so bad.  NEVER EAT HABANEROS!

We also taught Yubiri, the mother of a member. She will be going back to Venezuelaon Tuesday, but we are going to be lifelong friends.  I love her so much.  Hopefully she will get baptized soon in Venezuela.
Hurrah for Israel,

One of my favorite ways to teach the apostasy is to take a temple picture, and say that it represents the church that Jesus built, and then as the apostles are rejected and killed, and the doctrine is lost, I start to rip up the temple picture.
Then the ripped up picture becomes a puzzle, and we encourage the children to put it back together.  But even if they get the picture pieces in the right order, it is still not perfect.  There are rips and tears in the picture. 
So then we talk about the need for a restoration, or that God reestablished his church in its perfect and proper form and we pull out a new temple picture and talk about Joseph Smith.
We gave one of our investigator's children the temple picture pieces and told her to put it back together.  She took a gluestick and went into her room and put it together.  When she came back, this was the result.
I think that we can clearly see the need for a restoration! :)
