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.   There are 12 types of visitations discussed to aid in the role of the Christian.
