Too often we bask in our comfortable complacency and rationalize that the ravages of war, economic disaster, famine, and earthquake cannot happen here. Those who believe this are either not acquainted with the revelations of the Lord, or they do not believe them. Those who smugly think these calamities will not happen, that they somehow will be set aside because of the righteousness of the Saints, are deceived and will rue the day they harbored such a delusion. - Ezra Taft Benson

I am Concerned About People Not Preparing


I am concerned about those who are not seeing or feeling the need to prepare and to follow Prophetic Counsel. 

In 1975 Bishop H. Burke Peterson reported on a study made by Utah State University regarding the Saint's response to storing food as counseled.  The study revealed that only about 5% of church members had a year's supply of meat products, 3% a year's supply of dried or canned fruits or vegetables, approx. 18% had a year's supply of grains.  In the milk group, only three families in a hundred had a year's supply of canned or powdered milk.  On the average, about 30 percent of Church had a 2-month supply of food.  And...this, after years of being counseled to attain it.
