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

Memorizing Moroni's Promise this Change

President May has encouraged our Missionaries to memorize Moroni 10:3-5, which is fondly referred to as "Moroni's Promise." These great missionaries in the CSNM have been diligent and many are memorizing this great passage in BOTH languages. They come to Hermana May to 'pass it off,' but with the intention of knowing this to help them teach with conviction what these scriptures really mean. This same promise is powerful when we also recognize that it is not to just have a confirmation about the truthfulness of the Book of Mormon, but as we study and ask God to know about any and all of the doctrine and truths of the gospel, our investigators and we as missionaries are able to know with assurity. I testify that the Holy Ghost WILL convey the truth of all things to us if we ask sincerely as stated in verse 4. We would encourage and invite parents and family memebers to study and memorize these verses also, to feel the power in Moroni's words. They are true! See also Spanish below:

3 Behold, I would exhort you that when ye shall read these things, if it be wisdom in God that ye should read them, that ye would remember how merciful the Lord hath been unto the children of men, from the creation of Adam even down until the time that ye shall receive these things, and ponder it in your hearts.
4 And when ye shall receive these things, I would exhort you that ye would ask God, the Eternal Father, in the name of Christ, if these things are not true; and if ye shall ask with a sincere heart, with real intent, having faith in Christ, he will manifest the truth of it unto you, by the power of the Holy Ghost.
5 And by the power of the Holy Ghost ye may know the truth of all things.
3 He aquí, quisiera exhortaros a que, cuando leáis estas cosas, si Dios juzga prudente que las leáis, recordéis cuán misericordioso ha sido el Señor con los hijos de los hombres, desde la creación de Adán hasta el tiempo en que recibáis estas cosas, y que lo ameditéis en vuestros bcorazones.
4 Y cuando recibáis estas cosas, quisiera exhortaros a que preguntéis a Dios el Eterno Padre, en el nombre de Cristo, si no son verdaderas estas cosas; y si pedís con un corazón sincero, con verdadera intención, teniendo fe en Cristo, él os manifestará la verdad de ellas por el poder del Espíritu Santo;
5 y por el poder del Espíritu Santo podréis conocer la verdad de todas las cosas....-----------------
