Be Prepared - not the Lion King song.

In light of the recent events here in NZ, re: disasters, we've heeded the forewarning and started to get things together incase the worst happens unexpectedly, as it did February 22nd down south.
Understandably, it's something everyone procrastinates about until it's at your doorstep.

We've been warned in our church to be prepared for as long as I can remember and for as long as I can remember my family have always had a store cupboard.

We have 2 first aid kits. One for everyday use and the other is a incase-we-need-to-flee kit. (above)

I started on our 72 hour kits. They basically have the same things in them.
There should be one per person in every house hold.

Food. First Aid. Personal hygiene products. Matches etc. There are a few more things to add, but you get the general idea.

I think I'm fortunate to be living rurally with family close by. My parents have things we don't have like a tent, gas cookers, 1000 gallon water tank and space in their yard to set up camp in a hurry.

Gerard N Lund wrote the book The Coming of the Lord. We've been reading it for the last week and it's pretty interesting to read what prophets and apostles foresaw back in the 1800s that we see panning out today by way of the news.

Of course, believing it is an individual choice .. my choice being that I don't want to say " I should have ...".
