Back in Arnhem!

Goedemorgen Everyone!!

Well this week was a good one for us! On Tuesday we left from Deventer and went back to Arnhem! It was really nice to get back there! We were super tired because it was after District Meeting, but we got out and visited some people that day! On Wednesday was probably the hottest day of my life in the mission.. We were dying.. but we carried on with our water bottles!

We had the opportunity to go and help an investigator with her daughter's birthday party, so we went and helped her move a couple of things and we had the opporutnity to teach her friend that was there about the Book of Mormon! It was super cool, she was super open about everything, we taught her the Restoration in a small amount of time, but it was super cool! She had to hurry and leave and we didn't get the chance to get her information, but hopefully Monica can give that to us to see if she has further interest! Well we ended up also teaching Monica about the Big 3(Prayer, Church, and Scriptures) she said she has been super stressed and hasn't been able to feel peace and rest and we explained to her that through these things we can become more happier, because we have recieved it ourselves! It was super cool! We then prayed with her and all the kids at the birthday party!

We had another lesson with Semmie this week, and it was a good lesson, she is super busy and stressed with all of her kids and she recently had to go to the hospital because she had kidney stones.. so that was hard and painful for her. So we went over saturday and read in the Book of Mormon with her and she was a lot more happier and less stressed! It was nice to see her be happier and give her a little boost for this week!

I hope you all had a great week, this next week should a good one for us! I am excited to see how the work will be here in Arnhem! I love you all and I will talk to you soon! 

Love Elder Morey!

Dutch Healthcare is terrible....

Goedemorgen everyone! Well unfortunately this weeks email is going to be short because of a couple things, one because I am emailing on an iPad, two I don't have too much to talk about, but I have some things good about this week! Well first off the Dutch healthcare is terrible.... We took elder Williams to the ER and they turned us away and told us we didn't qualify for the ER.. So I was furious! We then went to a doctor the next day and elder Williams apparently has a viral infection that is affecting his body in weird was such as inflammation in parts of his body and a rash around his body, so president told us to go stay with the Deventer senior couple for a couple days, so that is where we are. Elder Williams is doing a lot better and is almost ready to start working again.

I have had the chance to work with the Deventer elders for the past couple of days, we had a cool experience on Saturday, we taught one of our investigators in Arnhem named Sammie, she has 4 kids and is alone so she is going through a tough time with everything and we had a lesson with her and it was super cool to see how willing she is to follow what God wants for her, we talked about baptism and how she wants to prepare for it and make that promise with our Heavenly Father, it was a really spiritual lesson and really eye opener! 

And besides that we have been planning for our week and district meeting so it has been good! And that is about it for us for this week, we hope We will be back in Arnhem soon! I love you all, talk to you soon!

Transfer calls and year mark!

Goedemorgen everybody!! Well another solid week in the mission field! We had transfer calls this week, and I will unfortuantely be leaving Hengelo and going to the city of Arnhem. My new companion will be Elder Williams, he actually is in my MTC group! So I get another companion from my MTC group! We will also be serving as District Leaders together, and we will be over the same District I am in now! So yeah that will be really cool and a new thing to participate in! I am excited to Always go and serve somewhere else, so we will see what the Lord will have in hand for us! I also hit my year mark from home this past week! crazy how fast it flies by, like Elder Croft and I joked around and said "Okay this year we will take seriously!" haha that is joke!

Well Elder Miera and I had a couple of really cool little miracles this past week, on one day Elder Miera and I were going knocking doors and we came across a really nice lady, and we taught her the restoration on the door and gave her a Book of Mormon, we then later that day found another dude who let us up into his apartment and we shared the Restoration with him also, they both took it well, they weren't too interested in going further about learning more, but just the feeling of planting some seeds and showing people the joy we recieve from our belief, means a lot to some people to see that, so we had a really cool day that day! and the guy almost let us play his PS4, but of course we had to refuse..

So this Friday I had the opporutnity to go on exchanges with Elder Croft on our year mark, we both were talking and thought that it was no coincidence that we had the chance to spend it together and have a great time, a year ago we were companions in the MTC and we got the chance to see our growth and have a fun day! We had the opportunity to play some basketball with some Dutch kids that night, needless to say I am still sore and still a very rusty basketball player! but it is cool to see us making a difference being an example to these kids!

My time here in Hengelo has been great, I think it has been one of my most growing period cities so far, I have learned a whole lot and have had the opportunity to get close with the Ward and enjoying the little miracles here and there that I have seen! This next Transfer will be a cool one! I love you all and hope you have a great week! Love Elder Morey! "We are infinitely more than our limitations or our afflictions." - Jeffery R. Holland

Goedemiddag everyone! and especially Happy 4th of July to everyone back home!! I hope you eat a bunch of food and enjoy the fireworks! Well this week was a fun one for Elder Miera and I, we got the chance yesterday to get some water poured on us and almost get into a fight with a dutch man! So It gets exciting!

Okay so a little about our week, we had a little bit of a slower week, but we did ge the opportunity to teach some new people, one of which was Yolanda. We had found her at the first of the Transfer, the appointments just always seemed to fall through.. but one day she called us and we set up a new appointment, so we went and taught her about the Restoration. It went really great, she had many questions and was open to what we had to teach, we hopefully will get the chance to come back and see how she is progressing with the Book of Mormon!

We also taught our investigator Mathijs again, we went over the Plan of Salvation again with him and made sure that everything made sense with him, he is amazing at listening with the spirit, he just needs to recognize it. We have a return appointment with him, he did say that he thinks that this will be the last time we meet with him, but I hope not!

Well Friday was a great day for Elder Miera and I, we went to a certain area in Hengelo that we thought would be a good area to contact and find someone, well on the very first bell up we did, we met this super nice mom and her little daughter, we taught her about the Book of Mormon and we will get the opporutnity to return and tell her about the Restoration! I love how the Lord puts us in the right places at the right time, it blows my mind everytime! Later that night I had the chance to go play basketball with a less active and needless to say.. I am out of shape and not a good ball player anymore.. haha but we will play with him and his friends every Friday night!

On Saturday we had our Ward Party/ BBQ! It turned out being an amazing activity for the whole ward, we had the opportunity to talk with some  people and show them around the church and we ended up teaching some really cool guys that were syrian orthodox. Elder Miera got to use his spanish and talk to some spanish people! SO these ward activites work! They are great just to get to know more people and have a great time!
That was our week in a nutshell, I hope you all have a great week and I will talk to you all soon! Love you all!
