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

We need our "Spiritual Tanks" to be FULL

In these challenging times that we are facing now, I want to put great emphasis in the importance to stand fast in doing the basic spiritual things. These can be times of instability and commotion where we have to maintain the calm and the focus in whom we are we and what is our purpose. We need to maintain even greater spiritually. We cannot leave the house with a spiritual empty tank neither a half-full tank. We should pray more fervently and with greater faith, study the scriptures and particularly the Atonement, with greater focus, and to be obedient with exactness to enjoy the company of the Spirit. In times of crisis the tendency can be to stop doing the basic spiritual things and become distracted. To inspire, to bless, to encourage, and to elevate others, we have to have our own spiritual strength. This spiritual strength comes for the consistency in our prayers, study of the scriptures, and obedience. Also, I want to invite you to record any spiritual experiences, impressions, and thoughts in your personal journals to recall for the future. We have seen the Lord´s hand in protecting and blessing us.

As a result of this earthquake, people´s hearts will be receptive to the Gospel of Jesus Christ. We now have a great opportunity to step up our efforts to find these people who have been prepared. Please continue to prepare your investigators for baptism and work closely with your local leaders to coordinate baptismal services. We also have a great opportunity to render service to those in need.
