Tea Any One!!
This Friday my Visiting Teachers came to visit. For those of you who may not know what this is I have included a run down of the program.
Visiting teaching is much more than a visit or sharing a thought with a sister. It is how we connect with one another. We share hearts and souls and extend charity, Visiting teaching brings the love of the Lord to every home and to every sister.
Why do sisters do visiting teaching?
Mosiah describes it this way: "To bear one another's burdens, . . . to mourn with those that mourn; yea, and comfort those that stand in need of comfort" (Mosiah 18:8–9).
The purposes of visiting teaching are to build caring relationships with each sister and to offer support, comfort, and friendship.
Well I have two of the BEST Visiting Teachers. Jesse gave the most wonderful thought from a talk in general Conference by Jeffery R Holland. You can read it in the photo above. She also hand made the cutest tea cups to go with it. Now for those of you who know Jesse this is almost boarder lined crafty, creative, object lesson overdrive. This girl is incredibly beautiful & smart but this sort of thing is way out of her comfort zone. Her mum Kim is my VT companion and if we want a cute thing to go with it, like I did fridge magnets this month, I will need to do it. But check these little tea cups out!!! I love them. Ticktock biscuit, marshmallow, musk lifesaver and freckle on top. They tasted so good too & you all know what we are doing for Family Home Evening on Monday don't you! Thanks Jesse & Cynthia, you are fantastic VT's.
