I found it to be a useful tool and a great reminder of the importance of visitation. There are many ways one can visit and minister to others... this does a great job of breaking that down and explaining how to be our best at each one. This is a concept that all churches and individuals should be more aware of and put into practice. It's not just the job of a pastor or elders (or even someone else with this job description) to put these suggestions to use... we can all benefit from an education on this form of showing God's love to others! After all, "love" is not just implied as something we need to do... it's commanded.
