Visiting Teaching is a program directed by the Lord to ensure that every sister's needs are met. As visiting teachers, we are the Lord's hands, mouth, and ears as we serve, speak, and listen to those under our stewardship with love. I know that as we fill our callings as visiting teachers, we will bless our own lives as well as those of people around us, there will be increased unity among the sisters and in the ward, and many miracles will be performed.
