1- you see someone you VT in the grocery store and have to introduce yourself.
2- you have to precede every phone conversation with, "Remember me? I'm your visiting teacher".
3-you arrive at her home to find that the week before she needed help and two other sisters came to her aid.
4- you consider waving to them at a traffic light a visit.
5- when the vt-ing supervisor calls to find out if you visited your sisters, you have to ask who they are.
6- you duck into another room (any room - even the men's restroom) to avoid contact with them in the church hall because you're too embarrassed to even make an excuse why you haven't been by to see them anymore.
7- you have to call them on the way to their house because you forgot where they live.
8- they're allergic to nuts, wheat and citrus and you bring them walnut whole wheat muffins with an orange glaze.
9- they get a 'Happy Birthday' card 3 months after their birthday.
(fill in the blank - I'm sure you must have something to add...OH, and only a few of these do or have applied to me. One from an experience I had today where I realized it's time to step up my VTing up a notch or two)
The purposes of Relief Society are accomplished through visiting teaching when sisters are given the opportunities to watch over, strengthen, and teach one another.
