All of us will, at some point, know people who are sick or injured. Many times a personal visit could be a great encouragement or even a turning point in that person's healing journey. Even Jesus modeled this behavior when he visited the sick and infirm to lend a personal touch and presence.
Visits to hospitals, care facilities, and even homes can seem awkward and difficult to carry out. This resource gives some important suggestions to help us engage in this important ministry of the church. Disclaimer: One important suggestion that isn't mentioned here is to know your own culture. Maybe there are some health professionals in your church community that can help you know and understand the health care culture in your city.
