12 For even aas the body is one and yet has many members, and all the members of the body, though they are many, are one body, bso also is Christ.13 For 1aby one Spirit we were all baptized into one body, whether bJews or Greeks, whether slaves or free, and we were all made to cdrink of one Spirit.14 For athe body is not one member, but many.
I Corinthians 12 :12-14
Who Needs to Be Visited:
Anyone needing encouragement, comfort, or a sense of belonging would profit from a visit. While that could include everyone, there are certain individuals who especially need to be reminded that they aren't forgotten. These are people who can feel rather lonely at times.
elderly people still living independently especially if they are shut-ins
elderly or disabled people living in nursing homes
people who are sick for a prolonged period of time
people who are hospitalized
people in shelters
people in crisis
We could add to the list those who are unsaved who may be reached through door-to-door visitation or bus ministry visitation. We could add visitors who may be encouraged to return by our hospitality outreach. Because this training section deals with helping ministries, we will primarily be dealing with the aforementioned list. Visitation to the unsaved and to visitors would fall more under outreach and assimilation ministries.
