Bienvenidos a la Mision Chile Santiago Norte! We love the Savior, and are blessed to be part of this great work, to share His gospel, and invite others to come unto Him. We are grateful to have this incredible opportunity to associate with such fine young men and women and other couples who are serving in this wonderful part of the vineyard. We decided to share this mission through a blog, with any who would like to know more.... All of the lessons, talks, training, conferences, and meetings are obviously done totally in Spanish, but for the sake of this writer, the notes are here in English, for speed in typing, and therefore, mixed with a bit of both worlds. We hope all of our missionaries, families, and loved ones can enjoy this blog, in spite of the writing, grammar, language, errors, etc. This will be a miraculous journey, and we invite you to share and enjoy it with us.

Lovingly, con cariño,
Presidente Michael May
Hermana Carol May

Advice from Missionaries going home

As the missionaries come to the mission home and have a last, 'Final Supper,' testimony meeting, etc, I've asked them to share some words of advice or counsel to share with other missionaries to help them use their time wisely, or what they would like to say to our new missionaries arriving the same time here. The following are some of their thoughts and ideas:
  • "Perservera'. Just "DO IT," like the Nike logo."
  • "Listen to the Spirit. Go forward with faith to accomplish what the Spirit instructs."
  • "This is God's plan, so work towards the goals to fulfull his plan."
  • "Talk with the people when you are walking, or riding the metro to the next appointment, so you don't waste time."
  • "Do the carpeta de area/area book. We hadn't done it for a long time and we lost people."
  • "I just read Alma 5 today, and Ether 12:27 is really important for me."
