We should never underestimate the value of a one-on-one visit. Just as women walked around Nauvoo gathering information about the conditions of individuals and families in that early era of the Church, so do sisters in Perth, Australia, and Papeete, Tahiti, walk to homes of their neighbors to visit and care for one another. I think itís exciting to be a part of a worldwide association of sisters who exercise this watchful care over each other. Sometimes when Iíve gone out visiting teaching Iíve thought about that, and wondered if maybe women in Manitoba, Canada, or in Mexico or in France or even in the Soviet Union were out doing their visiting teaching at the same time I was. Itís quite a concept, to be part of something that is so much bigger than ourselves.
