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

Happy New Year, 2010!

The Mision Chile Santiago Norte had a 3 hour 'Exercise Sports Activity" morning. This was held on Dec 31, 2009, as surprise to the mission, and Hermana May's birthday, to arrange the mission into three separate sections (combining 2-3 zones in each area) from 9am-12noon. The zone leaders helped orchestrate the events.

The zones leaders were given a little money to buy drinks, treats and plan for the sports they all wanted to play. Pdte May, Hermana May, and Sarah traveled from the field in Colina, to the community park in Zapadores, to the Stake Center in San Pablo. The missionaries were so happy as they played soccer, football Americano/touch, Basketball, frisbie, volleyball, ping pong, water balloons, etc. It was a delight in so many ways, and besides a bit of sunburned necks and upper arms, all were in good form and spirits. Many said that they hadn't run, jumped, leaped, etc so much in all their mission, as their typical exercise is much more confined to their rooms, usually. We saw that they were happy, enthusiastic and encouraged to have a great new year ahead of them.
