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

Elder Steven May, returns from Brazil Rio de Janeiro Mission

President and Hermana May's 3rd missionary son has now returned from his 2 yr mission to Brazil Rio de Janeiro Mission. He arrived in the Chile Santiago North Mission, Oct 23, 2008 and stayed for exactly 3 weeks. He spoke at both of our two zone conferences, in Portugease and all were edified. Many told us they totally understood all that he said, and whether it was by the gift of tongues or the similarity that this language has with Spanish, it didn't matter, because we all loved to hear his wonderful testimony, along with the wisdom and knowledge of the scriptures and doctrine that he shared with us.

I will just try to list some of it, but we recorded the whole talk and sent the copy of it to our 4th missionary son, Gregory, who is also serving presently, but in Chile Concepcion. He spoke about unity in Companionships. Alma 48:11,12,17, recognizing the wonderful Christlike attributes that Moroni had, and that we need to develop individually. Also D&C 38:27, that if we are not one, we are not His. Also, Alma 53:2, that Lehi was a companion to Moroni, and was similar in character, and shared the same love and dedication to the work as did Moroni. How wonderful to hear him speak with power and conviction! He was a fabulous missionary.
