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

The Gift of Tongues in the Chile Santiago North Mission

Topic or theme for this time period/change, is HOPE, or Esperanza. We have the assignment each change to study and prepare 3-5 minute talks on the subject that Pdte. May gives each missionary. We may be called on to speak in any meeting, anytime on that subject, so all are preparing and studying this during part of their personal scripture/PMG study. Today we had one of our Latin Missionaries, Elder Millaquelo stand up and proceeded to give his whole talk in ENGLISH!

Our missionaries are working during their Language study time to help learn and teach English to our great Latin missionaries. We are so thrilled with the progress that many of our missionaries are doing to this regard. Their companions are practicing with them, they use it openly and without as much hesitation, and we are thrilled that they realize that the Lord promises all of His missionaries in PMG, chpt 7, that this is the time, as a missionary, where He can help them learn a language. Elder Millaqueo was a great example and strong influence for good in our conference, which again will set the tone for future missionaries to speak up and try to converse in English.
