Courtney and Giovanna recently delivered a meal to a family in our church.  On the way, they had the following conversation:

“What street look for?”  asks Giovanna

“We are looking for Little Street.”

“No, you joke me!”

“No I am not joking.  The street is really called ‘Little'”.

“I don’t believe you.  You joke me.”

This went on for some time and then they came to the street where Courtney pointed out the street sign and said, “See Little Street.  L-I-T-T-L-E  spells Little.”

“Oh, you no joke me.”

Praise the Lord – 6 months ago this conversation couldn’t have happened.  Her English was not good enough to have a conversation of this length without one or both parties getting frustrated!
