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

2 Baptisms on the Day of the Earthquake!

We haven't had time to tell all of the missionaries yet, that YES, we had two baptims on Saturday, the day of the Earthquake!!! Felicitaciones! What joy for all, as we share in the Lord's joy bringing souls to Him.
Here is what we heard happened...

We had one baptism in San Pablo, and one in Los Andes. The zone leaders told us the details that a Father (his wife and children are ALL members, menos him) had been taking the lessons, had his baptismal date set for Saturday, Feb 27th, and as soon as the earthquake hit, he must have contacted the missionaries right away, told them he was determined to still be baptised and didn't want to wait, so a member of the ward went right down to the chapel and started filling the baptismal font about 4am, to ensure there would be water for this blessed event. The Lord has many people, faithful, repentant, and eager to be baptized. Now is the time, more than ever!
