Let the Chirstmas Season Begin!!!

Goedemorgen Everyone!! SO I don't have too much time today, because we are having a Turkey bowl in Tilburg! SO I will try to get everything in I can! I hope everyone had a great Thanksgiving and ate a bunch of Food!! We did too just to let you know!

SO this week was super good!! We had the chance to teach all of our progressing investigators and get in contact with other formers! First I would like to talk about Diana, she has been investigating for a while now and she has stopped drinking alcohol and is almost done with smoking. And we had a lesson on Tuesday and she pops the question, Elders when can I be baptized. (slight pause as the elders look at each other than back at the investigator) Elder Morey answers, yeah we can set a date with you and strive for that if you would like? Diana answers, yeah I would like that. SO Diana has a bap date for Feb 4 and will start coming to church and wanting to be baptized!! SO that was a miracle!

Gino is doing well, we still meet with him twice a week and he is making good progress, he just needs to come to church still and accept/ gain a testimony of certain things! But we are still working with him, to get him to baptism!  All of our other investigators are doing well and we hope to continue to meet with them and get them progressing as well! 

Now I have something to share with everyone, there is a huge Christmas initiative that the church is doing and it is called #LIGHTtheWORLD. You all need to look at this video and see what the church is wanting to accomplish. It is super cool!! It has a great way to follow the Savior and put Christ in Christmas!!! SO please go check it out and also share it with others!! I love you all and will talk to you soon! Tot Ziens!

Goedemorgen Everyone!! Well this week was a good one, Transfers went by pretty smoothly and everything went good! I went to Den Bosch to pick up Elder Finley and take him back to Heerlen, so it was successful! Elder Finley and I are doing great and decorating for Chirstmas already!

I have a pretty cool story to tell about Transfer Day, so as Elder Bringhurst and I were on the Train late to Den Bosch, so we were kinda worried that our Zone Leaders would be a little upset at us, because we went out for breakfast with some members. Well to say the least we were meant to be late. When we got to a city called Sittard, the Conductor saw that Elder Bringhurst and I were reading in the Book of Mormon, and he asked how the story was going? So I said have you ever heard of the Book of Mormon? He returned with no I do not. So I began to teach him about it and told him about the Restoration a little bit, well he was super interessted and I ended up giving him a Book of Mormon and he was super pumped to read it, he doesn't live in our area, but it goes to show that even though Elder Morey thought he was gonna be in trouble for being late to pick up his companion, but it turned out that it was meant to be!

Well our Investigators are doing well, Our baptismal date is doing okay, he recently has been having a hard time with his family, but he is still progressing towards baptism, we just need to get his butt to church! We will get him going though! We meet with Diana this week and she was doing okay also, she was pretty sad to see Elder Bringhurst leave, which broke my heart also to see how much she loved him and connected with him. But we read in the Book of Mormon with her and hopefully we can find a way for her to come to church, since she isn't too physically able. But further this week has been good and I am excited for this next week!

I hope you all have a great Thanksgiving with your families and enjoy the heaps of Food! I can't wait to hear how it all went! If you ever have time, you should listen to the song "Thankful" by Josh Groban, it is a good Thanksgiving/Christmas song! I hope you all have a great week and I love you all! TOT ZIENS!!

"There is always something to be Thankful for...."

"Yeah, Mexico beat Trump this week..."

Goedemorgen everyone!!! I would first like to give a shoutout to my Grandpa, who is having a BIRTHDAY this Friday! HAPPY BIRTHDAY GRANDPA!🎊🎉 Hope it is a great one!! Love ya! This week was a super good one for us here in Heerlen! The weather was super cold, but we were inside mainly teaching the whole week! So we recieved Transfer Calls on Saturday and I will be staying in Heerlen, while Elder Bringhurst will be leaving to Ijmuiden, which is by the Haarlem area! I am super sad to be losing Bringhurst, he is an absolute stud and I love the guy very much, I enjoyed the one transfer we got to spend with each other! My new companion is going to be Elder Finley, he is younger than I am and is about 6 months or longer out on his mission, so we will see how it will all go! But I am excited to say the least about staying in Heerlen for Thanksgiving and Christmas!!

Well a little about the week, first off we met with all of our progressing investigators this week! Our first one is our guy from Aruba! He is doing well and has been working really hard with us to reach the goal of baptism! We meet about two to three times a week, which is really good for him and for us, so he is making good progress still, we meet with him Tomorrow!

We then had a day in Maastricht with our Investigators M & D. We first went to M and read out of the Book of Mormon together in 1 nephi 21 about Isaiah, and we helped her understand what it was saying and talking about, and she loved it and she recently got super excited to look up movies about the Early church days to see what it was like, so we are excited to see what she thinks about them, I love when Investigators are truly invested!!! We then got on a bus over to D and chatted with her, she has been working on quiting smoking, which she has done miracously! She is almost off cigarettes!! She never really smiles too much with us, so our goal always going in is to read out of the Book Of Mormon with her and making her smile, and when she does laugh or smile, man that makes my day as a missionary!

We had a talent show this week for a ward activity and it went really well, I will have to send you the video of Elder Bringhursts and I! I am super excited to stay another transfer her in Heerlen, The work has been great and even though its cold as I will get out, I still find joy seeing the Lord's investigators progress! I hope you all have a great week and I will talk to you soon! Tot ziens!

We do our Best!

Goedemiddag Everyone!!

Well this week was a pretty solid one for us in Heerlen, it was a simple week but a good one! Well I had the chance to go Golfing on P day, I unfortunately don't have an pictures, but I will get some that Br. Wilde took of us! Needless to say after a while of not touching a club, it took a little while to get the swing back a little! But it felt great!!

The most big Highlight of our week is probably our Baptismal Date, we met with him this week twice and the second time we came over this week, we were talking about Joesph Smith and how the Restoration came to be, and we ended up watching the full movie of the Restoration. And the Spirit was super strong during the whole movie, at the end Gino ended up saying that he is slowly gaining a testimony of the Prophet Joesph Smith! We meet with him about 3x a week now so that is super nice for preparing him for Baptism!!

We ended up getting new cabinets in the apartment the other day, they look nice and modern, it gives some nice fungshoui to the apartment! haha for the rest of the week, we taught some other lessons and they all went well, we are mainly focusing hardcore on Gino and getting him on the right track! So hopefully we will have a better week next week! Winter is coming here in the Netherlands, and its getting cold! Hope you all stay warm and have a great week! Talk to you soon! Love you all!!

Love Elder Noah Morey
