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

New Missionary Training

These great new missionaries, 11 in total, who just arrived on Mar 31st, came back to the Mission Home for Phase 1 training. We thought this was for orientation and training, but these are thoughts we learned from THEM, as they discussed what they had learned and experienced in just their first week:

"We trust much in God, and He gives us what we need."

"We were really praying for this man, and his needs, and then the Lord blessed us
with the answers, through his wife!"

A fellow missionary went to the hospital and had surgery and yet told his zone he would still follow through with his 20 contacts daily. He did that and was a great example to his zone. This new missionary was touched by this valiant example of another in his zone. They are eager to learn and follow counsel.

"We had great success this week, and I was so impressed with my trainer, who just challenged someone to baptism right at the door. They accepted right then and there and I stood with my mouth open, so impressed with my companion!" (great missionary to praise and compliment his companion right in public and give him the credit)

"I went on exchanges/divisions with a missionary who went home this past week. He taught me how it would feel to be making my last day of contacts in the mission, and I really felt his urgency. I don't want to ever forget how that feels."

"We can't really judge our contacts or investigators' hearts. The Lord knows their hearts and He is preparing them."
