Chapter 8—Fully Prepared

Thorough Preparation—Very much more efficient work can be done in the canvassing field than has yet been done. The canvasser should not rest satisfied unless he is constantly improving. He should make thorough preparation, but should not be content with a set form of words; he should give the Lord a chance to work with his efforts and impress his mind. The love of Jesus abiding in his heart will enable him to devise means to gain access to individuals and families.—Testimonies for the Church 5:396 (1885).

Let a class of canvassers be fitted up, by thorough instruction and drill, to handle the publications that shall come forth from the press.—Letter 66, 1901.

Knowledge of God's Word—The minds of all should be stored with a knowledge of the truths of God's word, that they may be prepared, at any moment when required, to present from the storehouse things new and old.—Testimonies for the Church 4:415 (1880).

A Knowledge of the Book You Sell—Canvassers should thoroughly acquaint themselves with the book they are handling and be able readily to call attention to the important chapters.—Testimonies for the Church 6:338 (1900).
