I’ll be a missionary, and you be the person I’m teaching, OK?


I know that Joseph Smith was a prophet of God.

So do I.

No, you don’t get a testimony until after you’ve prayed about it.

I’ve already prayed about it.

But pretend you haven’t, so I can practice.

I won’t pretend I don’t have a testimony!

It’s just make-believe!

I’m not going to make-believe that I don’t believe what I believe, and you’d better believe that you can’t make me!

No success today, Elder?

Too much.
