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

What great Example in Jacob from the Book of Mormon

What a great example we can learn from Jacob in regards to the importance of magnifying our calling and of being fruitful in our efforts:

For I, Jacob, and my brother Joseph had been consecrated priests and teachers of this people, by the hand of Nephi.And we did magnify our office unto the Lord, taking upon us the responsibility, answering the sins of the people upon our own heads if we did not teach them the word of God with all diligence; wherefore, by laboring with our might their blood might not come upon our garments; otherwise their blood would come upon our garments, and we would not be found spotless at the last day” (Jacob 1:18-19)

Are we accomplishing what the Lord has sent us here to accomplish as missionaries? Are we asking ourselves, “What more can I do?”

In our prayers at the end of the day, do we give an accounting of our work to the Lord? Do we feel personal responsibility for the sacred trust the Lord has given us?

“Your faith will be manifest through diligence and work.” (Preach My Gospel pg. 116)

What is our work?

“Go ye therefore, and teach all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost.” (Matthew 28:19)

It is my prayer that we will be fruitful servants of the Lord in bringing souls to Him through faith in Jesus Christ and His Atonement, repentance, baptism, receiving the Holy Ghost and enduring to the end.

We love you and we know that you have been called of God,
President May
