Visiting people

Let’s talk

I have only been here a little over a week and already people have been wanting to meet me.  This is great!  I want to talk to the members and get to know them.  I want to communicate better with them.  What goes through your mind when it is someone who has been inactive?  Last week I called to set up a home-visit with someone who is unable to come to church.  Little did I know that the rest of the family that lives with them is inactive.  When I talked to another member of the family trying to reach the home-bound member, she told me that she would like to talk to me as well.  What a great surprise and joy! Yet at the same time fear.
