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

Message from Angels

Zone Conference this change was on Aug 27th & 28th, in Alberdi/Huelen and then in Colina. The theme that Presidente May wanted to emphasize was the plan and purpose of the Chile Area Presidency's invitation, "PERMANECED" meaning Abide or Stay. It is inspired to help us find, teach, baptize while we are helping to invite back to the fold, some of the Lord's lost sheep who have not been on the path recently. Hermana May also spoke about Opposition, and then we had workshops throughout the morning and early afternoon where the missionaries were able to have hands-on practice with ideas for using and implementing Permanaced, as being directed throughout all of Chile.
Another highlight today was our music....Those parents of our musical missionaries would have been in tears to hear your sweet sons/daughters singing today.....

The first day we had Elders Stout, Ashby, Quintero and Simmons joined by Hermanas Ccanto, Spielman, Bowen and Padilla. They were truly singing like angels and we felt the Spirit in our meeting so strongly as they sang a beautiful, familiar medley of "As Sisters in Zion," and "Army of Helaman." The words are wonderful in Spanish, and the harmony and combination was perfect for the day. On Friday we had another sweet duet by Hermanas Mayhugh and Bair, who sang, "I'll go where you want me to go,"
which also brought tears. They originally had asked for accompaniment, but as they stood to the pulpit, with the microphone, they decided to do it simply, acapella with just their clear, sweet voices. It was very impactful, changing parts, harmony, counterpoint, beautifully blending and humbly singing to remind us all about our desires and reason to serve whereever we are called. We just know we are blessed to be in the best mission in the world; Chile Santiago North Mission! We have one Elder who is going home soon, and he had recently been serving on our Juan Fernandez Island, and as they sang, "I'll go where you want me to go dear Lord, over mountain or sea...."islas del mar"....this great Elder also had tears in his eyes.Thank you, thank you to these great missionaries for sharing their talents and developing them in the mission, where the Lord can make them much more. We love you!
