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

Capacitacion/ Mission Training

This past week our mission enjoyed a Mission Training, we call Capacitacion de Zona. This differs from our zone conferences. We are fortunate in this mission to live relatively close to each other, as far as mileage, which enables us to meet more often for trainings, classes, workshops, interviews, and conferences. Our farthest distances are about 1.5 hours drive in car for us to be with any or all of our missionaries. That is a blessing. This week we divided the mission into three sections. As we have close to 175 missionaries and having 3 groups with smaller numbers, this helps us to have more interaction and participation from the missionaries. Our trainings are much more 'hands on' with workshops, classes where they move from room to room, share ideas, practice, learn teaching skills, etc. This week we:

President May taught the missionaries an important format of teaching doctrine, principles and applications. He gave great examples of the differences, and why we need to learn by faith to implement these in our own lives and then to our investigators. The missionaries made thoughtful questions and comments which helped us all be edified. These fine missionaries are eager to learn, want to be obedient, really are able to work hard, endure hardships and challenges, and usually are healthy and happy. This is a tremendous help in this marvelous work, as they are usually so much happier when they are doing the work well, having success by bringing people to baptism for the salvation of their souls. We are learning how to truly be converted, and helping our investigators too.
