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

The Folletts on Easter Island

Elder Edson and Hermana Carolyn Follett have been serving on Easter Island as our 'matrimonio' couple, and have had incredible experiences. We enjoyed their knowledge of the area, their love of the members and faithful dedication to tend to the flock there on the island. Elder Follett has served as the Branch President in the tiny branch that exists there.

They greeted us at the airport with flower leis, and head crown of beautiful, sweet smelling jasmine. They met up with us again, after we checked into the simple hotel and we went to their apt to have dinner with them. We enjoyed their hospitality, and sweet sister Follett was so kind to cook up a delicious meal. We attended church in the small building that is simple and yet perfect for here. It was fast and testimony meeting. Hermana May played the organ, which they hadn't had anyone really play for the meetings for so long, they said that they never have such sweet sounds, as so many were not accostomed to sing on pitch/in tune without the piano! We also had 4 other visitors that day, which helped round out the numbers.
President stayed after the meeting to meet individually with many to renew temple recommends, visit and check on the members with their own concerns. We are so inspired by their faithfulness and determination to follow the Lord. The RS hermanas are designing their Christmas ward party, complete with simple stitched Christmas stockings for the children, with some types of basic candies to make them smile. It reminded me how very little it really takes to make others happy. These women were truly happy to help one another. The whole trip was inspiring!
