The Problem With Thinking…

…in English while speaking in Spanish, is that it’s easy to say something that does not translate well or that the translation is not a good one.

For example, in a house church meeting a person might be thinking in English to say that we once lived on the same street as some friends being mentioned in a prayer request, but what comes out in Spanish is that our friends and we lived on the street…together.

Of course, that’s just an example. I’m not saying that I said that…and I’m not saying that I didn’t either. 😉
