As a christian you should forgive, however it would be good stewardship to visit, call and/or send a note asking if they will be fulfilling their obligation.

The key is to do it in love, and if they do not plan on fulfilling it to make note of it for tracking.

Pray for them and forgive and forget. It is truthfully between them and God.
