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

Recent Zone Conferences May 28 & 29th, 2009

All of our missionaries know that during each change cycle we have a theme of study, usually Characteristicas de Cristo, from Chpt 6 of PMG, or other type of Doctrine. This change we were studying Knowledge/Conocimiento. It was a wonderful to hear these fine missionaries in their preparation. Each know that anytime within the change, they may be called on to share a 3-5 minute talk that they have individually prepared themselves, in their personal study of the subject. They can be called upon to share at zone classes, zone training, and especially zone conferences, when we hear from 3-4 each day. This is some of what they shared....

We had a spiritual message from E. Baum, using DYC 28:21, reminding of Unity. Then Elder Bolentini, originally from Argentina, volunteered with permission from Presidente May, to give his talk in English. What a great example to all! He had put together his thoughts well, told of his personal impressions with Knowledge and learning about it, then share and read scriptures and spoke with power and authority, even in English. The spirit was their we were all touched with his humble and effective testimony.
We also heard from Hrma Marinos, which also was sweet to hear. The next day, E. Pollard shared a spiritual message to start, which is good for our new missionaries to hear from a great, seasoned missionary, speaking powerfully and with conviction. Then we heard from E. Melancon and H. Sears, but really touching again, was Hrma Mendoza, who is actually from Argentina, and as she ended her talk on Conocimiento, she began sharing her testimony in English too! Slowly, deliberately pronouncing each word as she had practiced, so that she could saw what was really in her heart. It is amazing how the spirit has touched her, helped her blossom and given her courage. Months ago she would not have ever wanted to talk in English, and now here she is doing it with the spirit. The Lord works miracles in the lives of these great missionaries, and they are all being converted to Him.
