I am so grateful that, after I encouraged a certain companionship to visit a specific sister (because I felt she had some immediate needs) this week, they did it. And they called me with a report and some very timely information. And, not only did they explain some challenges/problems that the sister was having, but they gave me the run-down on what they were already doing to help her work through those problems.
That, my dear readers, is what visiting teaching is about. It's Christ-like love and service in action.
