It Is Getting Real...

Goedemorgen Everyone!!

So I don´t have too much time today, we have some things to do and places to be for P day! This week was a good one, but also had it´s struggles. We didn´t see too much success, but we did still see some and we are getting excited for this next week, we have a lot of appointments planned and it is looking like we will be meeting with everyone and more!

This week we went on Exchanges with the Zone Leaders, Elder Stevenson wanted to go on one last exchange together. We ended up seeing a lot of success on that day, mainly on Elder Young and Sutherlands end. They ended up contacting some referrals and also finding some people that are pretty interested! We have plans to have some new investigators because of it! Funny story from Elder Stevensons and I Exchange. So we went to look up a referral in the north of Assen. We go there and the guy was in the back just enjoying the weather. SO I walked up to him and told him who we were and why we were there, and it was because that he ordered a Dvd. Well he explained to me that he wanted nothing to do with Jesus and that he didn´t even order the Dvd... So I told him sorry... haha!

On Thursday we had Zone Conference and we talked a lot about how we as missionaries need to have the Spirit more with us in Missionary Work and how we are only instruments in the Lord´s work, all he asks of us is to be there at the right time, in the right place. I know for sure the Lord blesses us through our efforts and that is all he asks of us to do. I also had to give my "dying" testimony, which is your last Zone Conference, so they make you share one! I cried and it was good. It just has made it feel even more real going home!

We unfortunately didn´t get to meet with our investigators this week, they all were busy and or cancelled on us. But next week is looking good and we will hopefully have more about the investigator end to talk about! I hope you all have a great week and I will talk to you soon! TOT ZIENS!!

The Lord Blesses His Servants Efforts..

I hope you all had a great week this week. Mine was good, no too much happened with us unfortunately, but hopefully next week will be better! We still had some good lessons and things happen to us, but nothing to exciting weet je?

Well this week we had the opportunity to meet with Grietje. She has been Investigating for some time now and has been struggling a little bit with the concept of God giving her trials and wondering why she has it so rough sometimes. On Tuesday we went over and shared a lesson with her about Peace. And how our Savior is there for us to offer Peace in our lives. We related this to the story of when Christ was asleep on the boat with the Apostles. You all know the story of how there was a huge storm and the Apostles knew that they were going to perish. So they turned to the Savior, Jesus Christ and he immediately woke up and calmed the storm. That is exactly how and what we need to do when we are in search of Peace in our lives, when we are in the boat(our lives) and we are getting tossed and turned by the waves of all these trials and hard times. But one thing we know for sure is, is that we always have the Savior in our boat. He will always be there for us in the time of need and Peace. All we have to do is turn to him and ask for his help and I know without a shadow of a doubt that he will embrace us with the Loving Peace he always has to offer.
It was a really good lesson with Grietje and she seemed to really take it and apply it, or at least think about it a little more how she can have that for herself!

We also had the chance to meet with Gaby again this week on Wednesday. We had a super good lesson about the Priesthood and how it is restored upon the Earth. We also answered some questions she had, which she has a lot of. I always feel the Spirit when we teach her, she always is intensive and always is willing to accept anything we teach her! She always shares her experiences with us as well and that is nice to know about! So things are going amazing with her, we have another lesson lined up on Wednesday!

It was super nice to talk to the family on Sunday and it is crazy to think that the next time I will see them is in 4 weeks! I hope and pray that I can continue to keep working hard and not getting too Trunky(Which is nearly impossible sometimes..) I love you all and will talk to you soon! Tot Ziens!

Love Elder Noah Morey

Last Transfer..

Goedemiddag everyone!! Well it is unbelieveable to think that I am on my last transfer.. I literally have about 5 weeks left of my mission.. I honestly feel like everyone is lying to me and that it is a joke that I am going home. But in all reality it is real haha!

This week was a really good one for us here in Assen! It was transfer week so it honestly just felt like a drag, but it still was very eventful and accomplishing.

First off I would like to tell you all a great story/experience we had with Gaby this week. So we had a lesson with her on Tuesday with Thies De Jonge. And when we got to her house, her boyfriend Felix was there and has sparked some interest as well. We taught them the Restoration and they took it very well and both were willing to pray about the Book of Mormon and to find out if this truly is Christ´s Church on Earth. Gaby ended up giving the closing prayer for the lesson and it was super sincere and I know that if they continue to investigate with a sincere heart that God will answer there prayers. Gaby ended up also coming to church, so she continues to follow up on our commitments and we have another appointment with them on Wednesday! OH and also She has saved up 2 years of Tithing. UNBELIEVABLE!! She has such a strong testimony of tithing which is mind blowing to me! SUPER COOL!!

We had the chance through the week to go and contact some referrals that we have gotten from the Easter Campaign. We ended up traveling to a place called Haulerwijk in Friesland. We had two referrals out there that we had to contact. We contacted the first one and he wasn't home, but his brother was, so maybe he will call us. But the second one was a very nice lady that was interested and said we could come back next week and share our message. So that was a nice miracle for us and hopefully she will be more interested going further!

Well I would like to also give a shoutout to my mother and mother figures in my life, I wish you all a happy mothers day and I love you all and am forever thankful for what you have done to make me who I am today and the influence you´ve had on me!

I hope you all have a great week and I will talk to you soon! TOT ZIENS!!

You believe in Tithing right? Yeah we do. Okay Amen.

Goedemiddag everyone!! Well this week was a super cool one. But first we got transfer calls on Saturday night, and I will be staying in Assen for my last Transfer with Elder Young, so I am pretty hyped to spend my last transfer here!

Well I believe I mentioned something about Kings day in my last email, that was on Thursday. It ended up being not what we expected it to be. We did not get up early enough to get a good enough spot.. SO all we ended up doing was walking around and trying to talk with people, but it was still a fun day!

On Saturday we had the chance to see someone get baptized here in the Groningen Ward, his name is Marcel and he is a super lovable guy! So that is always nice to be a part of!

Okay I don't have that much time left before we have to leave, but I want to tell you all about the miracle we saw this week. On sunday between all the 4 pairs of missionaries in the Ward, we had 8 investigators in Church! Now that is amazing. And one of the investigators happened to be a lady that a member knew and had invited to Church! (Shout out to Thies De Jonge) Her name is Gabby and she is from Suriname and she was super touched by Church. I ended up sitting next to her and after Sacrament Meeting was over, me and her had a good conversation about her realtionship with God and Religion. Turns out that the Spirit really touched her and she feels like she should join the church and be baptized. We at first were like okay slow down a bit! We ended up taking her aside at church(Br. Keuter and I) and Taught her a lesson on the Restoration and practically what the Gospel and the Church can mean to her! She is super positive and we have an appointment with her Tomorrow and it is super cool to see that the Lord is blessing the Groningen Ward!! 

I love how one member is actively being a missionary and taking courage to invite people and look what has happened!! I don't know if she will get baptized or not, but that is amazing! I hope you all continue to look for people around you to serve and be an example to! I love you all and hope you have a great rest of your week! Talk to you soon! TOT ZIENS!!

Love Elder Noah Morey

Kings Day!!
