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

Christlike Attribute of Charity

True charity means truly desiring the salvation of others. In Chapter 6 of Preach My Gospel, the Christlike attribute of charity states that, “you will come to feel a sincere concern for the eternal welfare and happiness of other people.” Helping people make and keep commitments is one of the highest forms of charity and love we can extend to a person.

We are not only helping them prepare to return to their Heavenly Father after this life but also received the many blessings that come from repentance throught the Atonement of Jesus Christ. In the Saturday afternoon session of General Conference, Elder Rusell T. Osgulthorpe taught asked the following question in regards to helping people repent:

Do I invite people to do the work that God has for them to do?

In other words, do I invite people to make and keep commitments so that they can receive the promised blessings associated with each of these commitments(D&C 130:20,21)? True love for those we teach involves inviting them to repent and change by making and keeping comitmments with the Lord. As we do so, they will begin to “feel the Spirit confirm that what they are doing is pleasing to their Father in Heaven.” Preach My Gospel p 196

Let us show our true love for all of those whom we teach by inviting them to come unto Christ and be perfected in Him is my prayer in the name of Jesus Christ. Amen.
We love you always,
Presidente May
