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

"Master, We have toiled all the night, and have taken nothing; neverless at they word I will let down the net."

In Luke 5:1-11 we read that Jesus was in the ship of Simon Peter teaching the people who were on the shore. When he concluded teaching He asked Simon Peter to go out farther into the deep and throw in his nets. Simon responded, “Master, we have toiled all the night and have taken nothing; neverless at thy word I will let down the net.” Peter demonstrated some rebelliousness and lack of faith by expressing doubt and complaint in regards to doing the Lord´s will immediately and without complaining.

We may be like Peter in the fact that sometimes we think that we have already knocked this neighborhood or we have already asked this member for a reference. But we can learn from Peter and quickly let down our nets without complaint or doubt knowing that the Lord will show us through the Spirit where we need to labor. He knows where the people are waiting to hear the Gosple in your area just like He knew where Peter should put down his net.

After they let down their nets, they caught such a “great multitude of fishes that their net brake.” They called their partners in another ship to help them and they filled both ships so much that they began to sink.

This is an example of what can happen here in Chile if we are worthy to have the Spírit and we follow its promptings to find those whom the Lord has prepared to bring to the waters of baptism for a remission of their sins.

We love you and pray for your success,
President May
