Email from MEGAN 12/12/11

How's things?  That's not a rhetorical question. 
     Things here are pretty awesome!  Last week when we were teaching Rebeca she really opened up to us and told us that she thinks this is where the Lord is leading her and where she's supposed to be.  So we invited her to be baptized and she said YES!!  She couldn't pick a date though, and when we saw her again later in the week, she still had not picked a date.  So last night she texted us and said she finally picked a date-May 26, 2012.  That's so far away!!  We are so so excited about the fact that she was able to pick a date, but we're afraid of all the things that could happen in the next six months.  Either way, she is so awesome.  She studies the Book of Mormon every single day for at least an hour.  Not just read, she studies.  It's so cool!  I hope that she has the desire to be baptized sooner, but if not, I am still way excited for her!
     We also had a lesson with Adriana.  She is so interesting.  She is very knowledgeable, and it's very obvious she grew up around the church.  You can tell she has a testimony and that she knows the message we share is true.  But for some reason she is still looking for excuses and reasons to not believe.  I think she's waiting for 'perfect knowledge' of the gospel.  This will never happen.  At least not in this life.  I told her to study Alma 32: 26-end.  She prays for an answer to her questions, and every time the answer is still the same-don't doubt what you know.  She's progressing though.  I think she'll recognize that she's getting the answer she needs.  She is a really good person and even thought she may not recognize it in herself, she has a great testimony and great faith.  I just can't wait for her to know this.
     We've had some really great lessons this week, but also during our lunch hours, we've had some fun.  We built a fort on Thursday.  That was so fun.  When we all got home at the end of the night, we planned for the next day then played games in the fort.  We left it up until Friday, when we do our weekly planning, so that we could say we did our weekly planning in a fort.  I love doing things like that.  It relieves some of the tension of missionary work.  I think that's important in order to stay focused on the work.  
     Anyway, that's really all I have time for today.  Being a missionary is the best thing ever!  I love you all!  Merry Christmas!
