BEING A GOOD SHEPHERD

I felt that it was my calling to teach every child in my class whether they attended Primary that week or not. My sheep will only follow me if they know my voice, so I visit every child who misses Primary class, every week. I take them the things we did or made in class, and I very briefly teach them the lesson concept. This has increased attendance, reverence, and love in my class. They know I love them, because I make the effort to go to them when they can't come to Primary. One child only came twice the entire year, but she often called me in the afternoons just to talk. I felt that perhaps I had failed because she had only come 2 times to my class, but I later found out that she had papered her room with all of the little notes, and lesson handouts I had given her. I was told that she called me when her mother was gone in the afternoons because she knew I cared about her and she felt I was her friend. When we go out and find our sheep, they get the message. It can be tiring caring for so many sheep, but it is always worth it."
