The Savior’s Example of Ministering

When Christ visited the Americas, many people came to see and listen to Him. His “bowels [were] filled with compassion towards [them]” (3 Nephi 17:6), and He ministered to the large crowd by healing the sick and blessing the children. How can we follow Christ’s example of ministering to all?
