Please give home teaching and visiting teaching an increased emphasis. Our prayers today must be of the same intensity and concern as were the prayers of Alma as he sought to reclaim the wandering Zoramites who had strayed from the Lord:.
Our clerk had brought a list of all the elders of that quorum, and on the list was the name of a man whom I had known for some years. If the bishop made a call to do some work on the chapel, he would usually respond, and if the elders wanted to play softball, you would sometimes find him out playing with them. He did have leadership ability; he was president of a service club and was doing a fine job.
I know there is some hazard in it, but he has the ability.
He hesitantly invited me in; his wife was preparing dinner, and I could smell the aroma of coffee coming from the kitchen. I asked him to have his wife join us, and when we were seated, I told him why I had come. The next Sunday, as soon as he opened the door I saw there had been a change. He was glad to see me, and he quickly invited me in and called to his wife to join us.

May we all seek the blessings of the Lord to strengthen us and give us the necessary power and influence we will need as we work together in this great labor of love. Some Points of Emphasis. You may wish to make these points in your home teaching discussion: Members of the Church are asked to extend their love to less-active members and nonattenders—members who at present are not fully living Church teachings and feeling the influence of the gospel.
The solution to successfully helping less-active members return to Church activity is found in prayerful and heartfelt concern for them as children of our Father in Heaven. Relate your personal feelings about the influence of the gospel in your life. Encourage family members to participate fully in Church activity and help others receive the blessings of the gospel.
