Hey everybody, hope you all had an amazing fourth of July because mine was pretty good. We actually celebrated the fourth of July on the third because there's always a ton of people going to the temple on Saturdays. But they went all out, they decorated like crazy and we had turkey, mashed potatoes, stuffing, and stuff like that because that's what the Dominican chefs think American food is, haha.Proselyting with the actual missionaries for like eight hours was amazing!!! The time went by so fast. I was the only one who went with a missionary who only knew Spanish. The only English he knew was "what the freak." His name is Elder Sanchez and he was awesome. We taught a whole bunch of people. There's a bunch of really sketchy allyways that are really tiny. There's also really small winding stairways, I never could've imagined one that small. But I understood some of what was happening, but a couple times I thought I knew what was going on and then all of a sudden everybody was looking at me, and I was like "Well I guess it's my time to talk." So usually I just testified on what I thought was going on, haha. One really good experience that happened during proselyting. We were teaching this lady and I was almost falling asleep. Then I opened my mouth to say something and I was wide awake. This really told me that you can not convert someone without opening your mouth! The spirit works through your words. Lecture Sixth in Lectures on Faith says "When a man works by faith, he works by words." You can not convert somebody without faith, and you can not use your faith unless you open your mouth. But I'm way excited to do that again tomorrow, and then get out of here on Tuesday!!!
