“Every First Wednesday,” New Era, May 1975, 11
The call to be a home teacher is very important to Bart Hales. And in fulfilling this duty Bart tries to follow the counsel of President Romney:
“The duty to perform the service of a home teacher is inherent in the acceptance of ordination to the Melchizedek Priesthood and to the office of Priest and Teacher in the Aaronic Priesthood. … Home teaching is one of the services by which priesthood bearers magnify their calling and qualify for the great promise that ‘… whoso is faithful unto the … magnifying their calling, are sanctified by the Spirit unto the renewing of their bodies,’ and bearers [who] magnify their calling … qualify for the great promise that [they will] become members of ‘the church and kingdom, and the elect of God.’” (Church News, Apr. 19, 1969, p. 16.)
Bart Hales has magnified his calling, and because he has, he has grown greatly himself. What is a good home teacher, and what qualities make him that way? Let’s go home teaching with Bart and his companion and see.
