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

We want to thank YOU!

Dear Sisters, Elders and Leaders and Members,

Last week Sister May taught in our zone training meeting the importance of expressing gratitude and especially in written form in thank-you notes. I take this opportunity to express my appreciation to each of you, the missionaries of the Mission North, the leaders and members of the stakes and district, wards and branches with whom we have the great blessing of working together.

All are examples of great faith and dedication. I am so grateful for the service you as missionaries are giving in the wards and branches where you are serving. At the same time, I see the love and support the leaders and members are showing giving references, leaving to teach lessons with the missionaries, holding a family home evening with investigators, and also caring for the missionaries. I am so grateful to hear comments from the missionaries like, "President, I do not want to leave this area, the leaders and members support us so much, they are incredible! Recently I received a letter from a branch president saying the following:

"I am very grateful for the missionaries that we have in our branch, they are outstanding and radiate a special spirit. These missionaries have brought many blessings to the branch. They have left an imprint on my life that I will always carry in my heart. We appreciate everything they do, for the time and willingness to serve every time we need them. I would love to have them spend their whole mission in our branch, but I understand that it is necessary for them to serve in other parts of the mission.”

Again I would like to thank each of you for you love and service that you are giving to invite all to come unto Christ. It is a privilege to serve together with you in the work of the Lord.

With much love and appreciation,
Presidente May
