As some of you heard in conference, home teaching numbers are down quite a bit. When I first heard this about our ward, I was reminded of a story my grandmother told. I'm not sure if it was something she or a friend did, but it is quite a brilliant idea.
At the beginning of the month they would make a cake. When the Home Teachers came, they would serve the cake. It didn't matter if it was the beginning of the month or the end. If they didn't come, the cake was delivered to them. Not sure if it was a piece or what.
We tried this in August, with the support of his wife. It worked. After not having Home Teachers but a handful of times since moving in 11 years ago, they came. Hoping this will continue to be a good motivation in the coming months.
