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

We are Grateful and Thankful for YOU!

This Thursday we celebrate Thanksgiving Day in the United States. It is a time where we reflect on all that we have to be thankful for in our lives. We want to express to you some of the things we are grateful for about you as servants of the Lord here in the North mission:

We thank you for…
*Being prepared and worthy to be called as one of the Lord´s elect to serve in the North Mission.

*Developing greater charity in your lives.

*You desire for the salvation of your brothers and sisters here in Chile.

*Loving and serving your companions.

*Your love for the Lord by obeying His commandments.

*The desire you have to continually improve, be better and practice well in training opportunities.

*Sharing your talents gifts and abilities to bless the lives of others.

*Your happiness in being unselfish and focusing on the needs of others.

*Supporting your leaders.

*Being valiant and hardworking under all circumstances.

*Being great leaders who show concern for your missionaries by calling them on birthdays, giving blessings, encouraging and motivating.

*Your dedication in not just completing your mission but rather magnifying your calling.

President Thomas S. Monson in his recent general conference address entitled “The Divine Gift of Gratitude” expressed the following:

“Sincerely giving thanks not only helps us recognize our blessings, but it also unlocks the doors of heaven and helps us feel God’s love.”

I would like to invite each of you in your letter that you write home today to express gratitude for your blessings. As we do so I testify that we will unlock the doors of heaven and feel God´s love in our lives which will ultimately bless the lives of our investigators, members and all with whom we come in contact with each and every day in this great work of the Lord.
We love you and are eternally grateful for each of you,
President May
