8 Months in the Mission!

Dear familia and friends!
           Still loving it here in Acome! Yesterday, Mauricio, Victor, and Elizabeth were confirmed members of the church. I figure I should probably write a little about their conversions. Hna. Cruz and her previous comp contacted Victor before I got here and he was really positive from the start. He wanted to get baptized two weeks earlier, but we hadn't finished teaching him the lessons yet. His mom is a less active, but lives in Costa Rica. Victor is so pure-hearted and simple. He's like a happy little 5 year-old. He said he wants to serve a mission. Mauricio and Elizabeth are dance students of Kevin and Judith and we taught most of the lessons to them both at the same time. Mauricio lives with his mom and grandma, who aren't members. Elizabeth lives only with her grandma. They were both really positive from the start too. Elizabeth received her answer before Mauricio, but sure enough, as Mauricio kept praying and reading the Book of Mormon, he received his answer too. Elizabeth and Mauricio have also said they both want to serve missions. Awesome!! I love all three of them. Sorry this letter is so short. I'm out of time. But I'll get you all caught up when we do google hangout next week! :) Love you all!
