I must clarify that the following are only my ideas or the ideas of others and do not represent anything with regard to LDS Church Policy. These are just some tips, and ideas to assist you in getting it done!
- My Sisters Hands by Sally DeFord
- My sister's hands are fair and white; my sister's hands are dark My sister's hands are touched with age, or by the years unmarked And often when I pray for strength to live as He commands The Father sends me sustenance in my sister's hands My sister's hands are lined and worn with burdens of their own And yet I know that should I mourn, I need not weep alone For often as I seek His grace to lighten life's demands The Father sends me solace borne in my sister's hands My sister's hands: compassion's tools that teach my own their art Witnesses of charity within the human heart Bearers of the Savior's love and mercy unto man I have felt the Master's touch in my sister's hands
You could also use "The Errand of Angels, or Earthly Ministering Angels" as Visiting Teaching interviewing or Conference themes. The term, "Errand of Angels" is found in the song..."As Sisters In Zion." Video found at http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CNNoOuMKuKg
Hymns, As Sisters in Zion, no. 309
The blessings of God on our labors we’ll seek.
We’ll build up his kingdom with earnest endeavor;
We’ll comfort the weary and strengthen the weak.
And this is a gift that, as sisters, we claim:
To do whatsoever is gentle and human,
To cheer and to bless in humanity’s name.
If we but fulfill it in spirit and deed.
Oh, naught but the Spirit’s divinest tuition
Can give us the wisdom to truly succeed.
Galatians 6:2, 9–10
Here are some nicely done Visiting Teaching Videos that could be shown at a Conference, or even playing while the sisters are waiting for their turn to interview.
