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

Zone Leader Concilio

Sitting in on part of the Zone Leader's Concilio/ council meeting is humbling as we see the great strength of the leadership the Lord has placed in our mission from these wondeful zone leaders. They are like the Team Captains of the mission, and lead with love and concern for their missionaries in their own zones. They come from all different areas, backgrounds, histories, etc, but here they are united in the work, and one purpose here in the mission. They have taken the challenge to memorize in their native language, DyC 121:34--to end, which teaches about the Priesthood, but in detail, about leadership and their responsibilities. They are so faithful and eagerly want to talk to Hermana May, to have her listen, while they recite the scriptures they have learned, often in their 2nd language also. So impressive are these fine Elders of Israel. When Presidente May asked them for some insights and improvements they think we can use in the mission, these are some of their ideas:

-Be more reverent in appropriate times.
-Be punctual in every case, meeting, visit, appt., etc.
-Representing the Lord in EVERY MOMENT.
-Be efficient in our lunch appointments, sharing a message and leaving within the hour.
-Have pure motives and not aspire for assignment or another position.
-Being more humble, more obedient.
-Urgency in doing the work.
-Listening to the RIGHT types of music, only Hymns and Primary songs.
-Staying focused and not getting distracted with neighborhood balls, music, etc.
-Keeping confidentiality in our communications amongst missionaries.
-Maintaining 20 contact per day, MINIMO so we continue to work hard.
-More unity in each level, companionships, districts, zones.
