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

Can two walk together, except they be agreed?

Dear Sisters and Elders,

In Amos 3:3 the Lord asked, “Can two walk together, except they be agreed?” Unity and teamwork in missionary work is powerful in bringing salvation to many souls. It can be applied to a companionship, district, zone, and a mission. It is also essential in the relationship between full-time missionaries and stakes, districts, wards and branches.

When two missionaries work as two individuals, the results will never equal what two missionaries can achieve working in unity as one. A basketball teams that plays as five separate individuals will never accomplish what five players can achieve playing as one. A missionary companionship will never achieve what they can if they work with a ward or branch as united team. When they do work together it is no longer a team of two but rather a much larger team that can accomplish so much more working together.

When a group of individuals work together as a team, their results will be multiplied and the end result will be greater than the total results of each individual working separately. This is called synergy. When companionships, districts, and zones work together in cooperation with wards, branches, districts, and stakes, the results will be greater in bringing many souls unto Christ. In Philippians 1:27 it says, “Only let your conversation be as it becometh the gospel of Christ that whether I come and see you, or else be absent, I may hear of your affairs, that they stand fast in one spirit, with one mind striving together for the faith in the gospel.

May we as missionaries work together in unity with our great and faithful leaders and members here in the Chile Santiago North mission that we may truly multiply our efforts in bringing many souls to the waters of baptism, that they may receive and enjoy the precious Gift of the Holy Ghost in their lives so that they may walk in His path, even Jesus Christ.

We love you,
Presidente May

  1. Dear President and Sister May, I am ever so blessed by your words. With Tyrell in the MTC I have been able to pass some of the wise and wonderful council that you share with him. He has been asked to be a district leader and says he feels the extra pressure of serving his fellow Elders. Me and Lynda are using some of your blog for our FHE and loved to share with our family. We are still planning on a visit. We love you and pray for the success of you and the rest of the missionaries in the world. May God bless you and your efforts. Love the Riley's
