Vrolijk Kerstfeest (Merry Christmas) 2016

Hope everyone had a wonderful Christmas!!!!  We had a wonderful time Skyping with Noah!!  He wasn't able to email because of the Library being closed for the holiday on Monday but is doing well and excited to work hard for the remaining 5 1/2 months he has left!  Hard to believe he will be coming home soon.  He is transferring to the city of Assen on Wednesday to be a District Leader there with Elder Groesbeck so we are looking forward to some exciting news next week!

Merry Christmas!!!!

GOEDEMIDDAG everyone!! I hope you all are getting really excited for Christmas!! I know I am! We had our Ward Christmas Party on Friday and it was great!! Lots of Food, visitors and of course Santa!! Dutch Santa came and it was great! This week has been a solid one! We had a lot of miracles transpire and it was great! Let me tell you a little about it!

Okay so first off we had another great week of teaching and meeting with our investigators! The ones that we have progressing are doing super well and continue to make steps toward their Savior! One miracle was with our boy Gino! We have been reading in the Book of Mormon with him in 3 Nephi and we recently shared a talk with him called Be Not Deceived by Dallin H. Oaks! and it hit him super hard! and it is times like that where you know that the Spirit will touch our investigators and put them on the right path! I love meeting with all our investigators here in the Heerlen/Maastricht area, they all have something unique about them and where they are in life. and I love seeing them making connections and having the Spirit touch them, it is cool to see!

We have recently as a mission started a Campaign called Joy to the World and people here in the Mission can order a free DVD and we get to go give this DVD to them and ask them what they thought about it and etc. well, Elder Finley and I have received 40 of them and we have no idea how we are going to contact them all soon.. so The work continues to go forward here and we are keeping super busy!

Now about Christmas. I hope you all are having a great season. I love this time of year, I recently talked with an investigator about this time of year and why she thought it was great. and it always comes back to families and togetherness. I am grateful for my Savior Jesus Christ. He has provided everything for us, so that we may have joy. Especially with those around us. I am grateful for Christmas, but also for Easter. I know that HE LIVES!! He came for one purpose and that was for us. I hope you all enjoy being with each other this week and enjoy Christmas Day and please think of your Savior and what he means to you! Because I know he loves you. I love you and will see you all soon!! have a great week and a very MERRY CHRISTMAS!!!!🎄⛄❄🎆🎁🎄

Gotta Love the Festivities!!!

Goedemiddag everyone! I hope you all are having a wonderful Monday so far! We are going with a member today for a P day and he hasn't told us what it is because it is a surprise, so we will see what happens... pictures will follow.. So I don't have too much time, but I will summarize quickly!

This week was really awesome, it went by to fast!! Our week was literally planned full this week, which is super nice, and we had some really cool experiences and miracles this week! First off to update you on all of our progressing investigators. They are all doing well, Gino is doing good. He promised to come to church, but didn't come. So I was a little upset, but I still love the guy and have faith that he will come sometime! Diana is doing well, we had to cancel our appointment on Saturday, but we are going over tomorrow to teach her the Plan of Salvation! Then M, and T and doing well also and are making positive steps. T surprised us coming to church and that was a huge miracle, she was super happy and had a great time at Church!
We ended up teaching a Syrian Family this week, that was really nice to us and let us in and we taught them a run down Restoration through a translator, I feel like I should learn Arabic.. 

We had Christmas Conference on Thursday and a Seventy Elder Johnson and his wife came and spoke to us. It was probably one of the best Conferences I have had on my mission, the presentation he gave was exactly what the mission and all of our missionaries needed. He talked about how we have been called by a prophet to be a good missionary and that we have the advantage to accomplish that on our missions. So that was really cool to be apart of. I also sang a song in Swedish for the Conference, so that was cool! We spent the whole day in Rotterdam, and it was great!

I hope you all have a great week and enjoy the Christmas Season and don't forgot to keep putting Christ in Christmas! I love you all and will talk to you soon! Tot Ziens!!

Love Elder Noah Morey

Happy Sinterklaas!!!

Goedemmiddag everyone!! This week was really great! We did a lot of Teaching which was super nice! It is also a Nederland Holiday today!! I hope everyone got some Pepernoten(gingersnaps) in their shoes! and yes that is what the Dutch do here! I wish I could explain more on the Holiday! 

Now about the week a little bit, we had some pretty good lessons throughout the week with Gino, he is progressing well, he just needs to come to Church and also accept some other things but besides that he is looking good and I really love teaching this man, he is the funniest Aruban I have ever met! 

Diana has been doing okay, all we did this week with her was talk with her, she has had some recent events happen in her life and is having a hard time. But we continue to go through the lessons with her to prepare her for Baptism, we just have to figure a way to get her to Church! Our last lesson with her, her father was there and we had a fun time. You all know of the Virtual Reality Goggle things. Diana has one and it is mind blowing! So she had her father try it out by putting him in a Virtual Reality Roller Coaster.. well he nearly had a Heart Attack to say the least and I and Diana were dying of laughter!! Super funny!

We also had Two Investigators come to Church on Sunday unexpected, which was cool! They both didn't stay for the full block,but it was good they were there! This week was full of learning experiences also, I love how the Lord works with his children! I know our Identity as Children of God is a huge meaning in this life. I know everytime an investigator prays or anyone, that our Heavenly Father or God hears our prayers and has a unbelieveable love for us! I hope you all have a great week and continue to follow the Church's Advent Calendar! #LIGHTtheWORLD! I will talk to you all soon and I hope you have a great week! Tot Ziens!!
