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

EX-Elderes y Hermanas hold special Fast for Chile

We rec'd a wonderful email on Saturday, Feb 27th, from one of our previous Assistants to the President, Elder Brandon Stewart. He told us that he had rec'd many messages from other returned missionaries on Facebook. They were building a chain, contacting each other, for Sunday, to have a special fast for their great family in Chile. They said many had Chilean flags on their profile! Spanish/English:

"Mi corazón se alegró mucho al ver los mensajes de todos los ex-misioneros en Facebook. También recibí un mensaje de text de una ex-misionera en Utah reexpidiendo una cadena a todos los ex-Elderes y Hermanas para que mañana hagamos un ayuno especial por nuestra gran familia Chilena. Una cosa es cierta: hay muchas banderas Chilenas en nuestras fotos de perfil!" Thinking of all of our wonderful missionaries who have returned home praying and fasting for the work and missionaries here brought us again to tears. How blessed we are that these powerful missionaries are part of lives forever. He shared a great scripture we all recognize and love,
Alma 37:6-7
Tal vez pienses que esto es locura de mi parte; mas he aquí, te digo que por medio de cosas pequeñas y sencillas se realizan grandes cosas; y en muchos casos, los pequeños medios confunden a los sabios. Y el Señor Dios se vale de medios para realizar sus grandes y eternos designios; y por medios muy pequeños el Señor… realiza la salvación de muchas almas.
"Now ye may suppose that this is foolishness in me; but behold I say unto you, that by small and simple things are great things brought to pass; and small means in many instances doth confound the wise. And the Lord God doth work by means to bring about his great and eternal purposes; and by very small means the Lord doth confound the wise and bringeth about the salvation of many souls."

Thank you, Elder Stewart and all of you loving Elders and Hermanas who love Chile, for your love, faith and encouragement! Les amamos muchisimo!

    Actually, it was the next verse I was thinking of:

    "And the Lord God doth work by means to bring about his great and eternal purposes; and by very small means the Lord doth confound the wise and bringeth about the salvation of many souls."

    (Alma 37:7)

    I believe this earthquake will be the means of softening hearts, possibly many, and preparing them to hear and receive the gospel message. This has the potential to be a very good month for missionary work. Time to reap the harvest. :)
