Currently, I have two Study Guides available. May they help your growth and study. Below the topics are brief summaries of the material.
Visitation: An Open Door
Visitation is a duty of every Christian. Yet, for some it is a scary endeavor. Who do you visit? What do you say? How long do you stay? What is your purpose in visiting? Do you have to be a walking Bible? The material presented is in this manual is in large part that of a deceased brother, Bob D. Smith. It has been updated and expanded since its original creation. Its aim and purpose is to give answers to the above questions and more. The manual is free to any who desire to download and use it. Click here to download it.
