May 2014 Visiting Teaching Changes

In May 2014, new VF 1 visiting teaching assignments were distributed. In an effort to make important information available in as many places as possible, we are posting the new VT assignments on the blog so that anyone who is unsure can check who they visit teach ("Visiting Teaching Sisters") and track down their own visiting teachers, who are listed next to your name, ex. “Marie Tiller: Sarah Kinghorn & Tobe Adewole”

At the end of each month you need to get in touch with your district leader to let them know who you contacted, and any special needs or situations that may exist.

Some Basic Tips for Visiting Teaching:

Please remember that developing relationships is very important. Texting and email are good ways to keep in touch with your sisters, but only AFTER you’ve established a relationship with them. Don’t let the pendulum swing too far in the other direction.

Please consider each other’s needs. Group visiting teaching lunches or get-togethers have their place, but using them each month for convenience is not appropriate. Each sister needs the nourishment that individual attention provides. Likewise, visiting teachers need latitude in getting their teaching accomplished, and the occasional group visiting teaching may be accommodated.

Encourage each other! If you haven’t seen your visiting teachers, tell them you miss them. Make yourself available to your visiting teachers. I hear a lot of frustrated comments like “She never has time for me to visit.” "I can't get in touch with her. She never answers the phone (or texts, or emails, etc.)" or “I don’t know who my visiting teachers are. I get a text from So-and-So once in a while. I don’t know why.”

Sisters, the most common heart-ache I hear expressed is a feeling of disconnect and loneliness. Visiting teaching isn’t the balm that heals all wounds – the Savior is – but it can go a long way towards relieving the aches and pains of every day. It is not a program - it is a principle, one where we uphold our covenant to "comfort those who stand in need of comforting." Please make it a priority.
