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

Experiences of the Inexperienced!

We enjoy our orientation trainings we have with our new missionaries, in sessions we call Phase 1, Phase 2, and Phase 3. We hold them the next week after the missionaries first arrive, and then Fase 2, during their 2nd change cycle, and 3rd during their 3rd cycle. It gives us an opportunity to see their growth, change, improvements, and also answer more of their questions as they are coming upon them. Today's 2 groups have really progressed in their language acquisition. We were so happily suprised to hear them talk about the work they are doing:

Some of their thoughts:
-"I loved the words to this song, "The Light of Truth" especially verse 3. (God has called us to serve, to all people we've been sent to go, we're going to teach with fervor in the Name of the Lord, --chorus-"The glorious light of Truth, will shine forthe eternidad, shining with the rays of sun, to all the world today!"
-"A man had a powerful spirit, we taught him of baptism. There was a lot of noise int he street and outside, kids playing, etc, and then the spirit inside the house was so powerful, the man was teachable and wanted to obey. He said, "I want to be baptized but what do I do?" Very humble to follow Christ."
-We were teaching a woman. We stopped in to visit her and another Jehovah's Witness was there in the kitchen trying to teach her before we got there. The other was trying to critizie our investigator for reading the Book of Mormon, but our investogator just got real bold and testified herself, "I know that the Libro de Mormon is the word of God." Then with that, the Jehovah's Witness left."
-"I was trying to talk to a bunch of jovenes/teenagers, and one started to put his hand in my slacks/pocket to take my cell phone. When I realized it and started to pull away, there were 3 hands in my pocket by then, and they took my phone and in the process, as I jerked away, they ripped my pants totally open in the front! I shouted to give back my phone, and they quickly did! That suprised me too."
-"We had been praying that morning where to go. We arrived to a corner and decided to pray again, because we couldn't decide where to go. The spirit told us to go across the street to the other corner house. The man had lots of problems but after we taught him, he asked that if he would feel the spirit strongly in attending our church meetings, like he does wiht us teaching him, then he wanted to go to church and feel that powerfully again!"

-"Banca Rota=bankrupt!"
