Hello! Melted snow!

I think this week was actually pretty interesting! Hahaha. I took off my giant coat and watched some snow melt. But it is still pretty cold.
I talked to a man for about 7 minutes without him saying a single word for like 7 minutes. He only did hand gestures and smiled and stuff. He was doing it on purpose. Ha. I would ask him a question that required more than a yes or no answer and then he would stare at me like "You think you got me, eh," and them he would figure out some way to answer with a hand gesture. It was kind of silly and weird. And interesting. But hey. I gotta talk to everyone! He left and I gave him a card. Ha. I guess you had to be there.... Haha.
Guess what! The investigator we thought was going to leave --- He didn't! So, we are probably going to baptize him this week. Wooo! He's great! Woo! But I was a little sad that we had to give another investigator to another area because they are moving. But! The missionaries we gave him to gave us an investigator in return.
Is that how you spell investigator? It kinda looks like a detective alligator. Anyways.
So, we have these people that work in the bus stop we frequently attend. The grandma loves us! She gave us some candy the other day. Now.... This lady is very Korean. And probably grew up in the days when there was no sugar in Korea.... Who knows... The name of this candy, which she assured us was in fact candy is Doshima. It ended up being a piece of dried kelp! It was.... terrible. I didn't finish it. Hahaha. If you don't like seafood, try one of these. Ugh..
The Sisters in my area have a very special investigator. She is 22 in Korean age and just... is really special.... Haha. She talks like a doll. It is one of the weirder things I have heard in my life. I don't know how she does it! But she is in love with me. And texted me the other day. I am obviously under strict orders not to respond!!! But she asked the Sisters when I go home to know when she can marry me. Wooo!
Something I learned this week!
Hope. Trust. So hard. But so valuable. Trust has seemed really interesting to me this week. Because if we really did trust God with all of our hearts and minds... What would we do? We would have no fear. We would have plenty of hope. We would be so happy. So, I think it is something I should work on. He has all of the characteristics that enable us, as His children to trust Him without reservation, we simply have to know that, and feel it. And do some other things to get ourselves out of the way. Make ourselves not become a road block to that.
I gotta go soon! I love you all so much! Keep me in your prayers!!!
