A thought from the scriptures

And I give unto you a commandment that you shall teach one another the doctrine of the kingdom. - D&C 88:77

"I bear testimony to you that home teaching is the divinely inspired method by which we can best touch lives within this Church," said Elder Robert L. Simpson, Assistant to the Council of the Twelve, at the April 1976 general conference. "Right beside this tremendous priesthood process is Relief Society visiting teaching. Paul had the spirit of home teaching and visiting teaching when he wrote to Timothy: And the things that thou hast heard of me among many witnesses, the same commit them to faithful men, who shall be able to teach others also.' (2 Tim. 2:2.) . . ."I like the analogy I once heard about home teaching. The speaker held up a piece of Scottish plaid and suggested that in our minds we think of each color in the plaid as a separate program in the Church. Then he asked the question:Which color is home teaching?' The answer: `Home teaching is not a single color; it is the total fabric.' Home teaching, properly carried out, could well involve every facet of the Church according to the varying needs of each family."
