Helps for Visiting Teachers
"It is clearer to me, on a daily basis, that if we are to become a Zion people, we must go to our brothers and sisters and serve them. We are to be a tool in the hands of the Lord; for His purposes, not ours. Losing yourself in the quiet service of others is what home (visiting) teaching is! We go to the homes (this does not mean specific houses) and hearts of the people and serve them. We become so busy in heaven's teaching process that we all come together as a Zion people." -Jon Fish
To Keep in Mind...
1) Seek the Spirit; Remember this is the Lord's work;
2) Seek answers from the Scriptures.
3) Discuss stewardship and encourage the Visiting teacher to do this also.
4) Stress confidentiality, friendship and sisterhood.;
5) Challenge each in the spirit of love, to commit to a specific area of Improvement.;
6) Let each know of your love and concern.
You Have Been Called...
We do not apologize for giving you this Job. You have been offered a blessing. Work with all your heart. A Half-hearted job will not do. The Lord requires quality workmanship. Satan only encourages shoddy performance.Success is achieved when we do our best job with a strong heart, without reservation. You can do anything you set your mind and heart to do. Carry forward this assignment as though your life depended on it. Really it does! Because you are a child of God you are more powerful than you realize.
You are set apart because you believe in the greatest business on earth -- 'Our Father's Business" Keep God's work in your hand so that everyone you touch will be uplifted. List the things that are holding you back in your work; then eliminate them. Overcome the "BUTS" in your life. (" I could have don it well, BUT... I was busy") It takes time and energy to alibi and find fault. Spend your energies in positiveness. Don't worry about the Lord being on your side; you just be on His.
Get good ideas; then present them effectively. Use your personality -- your eyes, your smile, the handshake, and high motives.
An important part of persuasion is personal testimony. Use it often.
~Remember, mind your "Ps and Q's" -- Prayer, promptness, persuasion, push, praise, promise, perfection, practice, power and purity, -- Quiet, Quick, Quality, Quest.
Meet your sisters in church on the "Lord's Day." But learn that "he who doeth the works of righteousness shall recieve his reward, even peace in this world, and eternal life in the world to come."
"But unto him that keepeth my commandments I will give the mysteries of my kingdom, and the same shall be in him a well of living water, springing up unto everlasting life." (D&C 63:23)
God does not begin by asking us about our ability, but only about our availability, and if we then prove our dependability, he will increase our capability. ~Author Unknown
