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 CANDY CANE/ Baston de Pastores

Does the Candy Cane have some signifigant meaning that we should remember at Christmas time?

The Meaning of the Candy Cane

Hard Candy-Reminds us that Jesus is like a “Rock,” dependable.

Peppermint Flavor- Is like the gift of spices that the Wise Men brought.

White Candy- Stands for Jesus as the holy, sinless, pure Son of God.

Letter “J”- Is for the name of Jesus Christ, our Savior.

Cane-Is like a staff used by shepherds in caring for sheep. Jesus is our “Good
Shepherd.” He wants us to feed His sheep.

Red color-Is for God’s love that sent Jesus to give his life and spill his blood for us on the cross.

The stripes-Reminds us of Jesus’ suffering—his crown of thorns, the wounds in his
hands and feet; and the cross on which he died.
