"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 that day they harbored such a delusion". --- Pres. Ezra Taft Benson, Prepare for the Days of Tribulation

Food Co-ops

From a WONDERFUL ward member: Thank you!!!
I was just thinking here are two more links you could put on the ward prepardness blog.  The first is a co-op through Crossroads Urban Center.  They have a pick up once a month down at the food bank, so it's really close. It is not donated food, so it's a little deceiving when people see the address as the food bank. They list their produce suppliers on their web site.  I like that they buy as much local in Utah as they can, bread comes from Stone Ground in Salt Lake, Nutty Guys has assortment packs every month, etc.  https://foodco-op.net/

A more frequent place for produce is: http://www.bountifulbaskets.org/
Right now the demand is extremely high in Utah with Bountiful Baskets and we need more locations, so you have to order on Mondays to make sure you can get a basket. They just opened a site at the Food and Care coalition this week, but it still went pretty quickly. They are looking for more locations.

My Note:  Bountiful Baskets is a wonderful way to get fresh produce at a very low price.  We have several ward members who do it and....who really like it.  It's also posted on the Sunday program each week!

Thanks for any of you who read this and......are preparing!  Bless you for that!!!  You're dear to my heart!!!!

Utah Valley SUPER Preparedness FAIR June 3-4

Utah Valley SUPER PREPAREDNESS FAIR...June 3-4

This fair will kick off around 12:00 AM and end about 9:00 PM Friday June 3. It will continue Saturday morning around 9:00 AM till approximately 9:00 PM. Free Food 2 Go is sponsoring the largest Preparedness Fair “ever held in Utah” at the Orem, UT Valley University Events Center (UVU).

So far there are 12 quest speakers and the number is rapidly growing, including Roger K Young, with booths, lectures, demonstrations, samples, etc. on every imaginable preparedness topic. To help recover the cost for the meeting center there will be a small entrance free. I am working closely with the fair sponsor to obtain discount tickets at a bulk price. If you are “interested and committed to go” please let me know ASAP so I can order your tickets at a discount rate. The door price will be $7.50 and I am “hoping” to get a bundle of discount tickets for my people at $4.00 each or no more than $6.00 apiece. 

As soon as I get a copy of the Preparedness Fair schedule with all the seminar speakers I will e-mail it to everybody on my e-mail list. If you’re not already on my e-mail list please send a request so I can add you to it at miracle2ofutah@hotmail.com .

Please contact Bob Vance for more info at 801-489-3471 or Verizon 801-358-6682.
 
After viewing this - I hope all of us have more of a desire to become temporally prepared and more spiritually in tune. If things like this were to happen here we could be caught unprepared.

These are the most graphic pictures of the Japan tsunami yet.  I was expecting to see water flowing in, instead it shows a mass of building flowing in.

Hold Back the World

President Hinckley in Conference (173rd) told church members to "Hold back the world" by resisting the everyday evil embodied in popular entertainment and the Internet.  While many of our faith will not support our values...."We cannot be arrogant. We cannot be self-righteous".    Pres. Hinckley

Flooding of Southern Farms - Havoc on Economy, Crops Destroyed

Just another indication that it would be wise to prepare for times ahead.

How to feed a BABY during times of Crisis:

If a nursing mother becomes sick or injured during a crisis situation, this information on how to feed an infant from our basic food supply may prove to be very useful;  or, if a family runs out of formula during an emergency situation.

Our basic food supply of unprocessed foods, whole grains and beans, would not be suitable for the very young.  They need foods that are more concentrated and less rough.  To make a formula adequate for a 24-hour period, you will need to make this recipe three times. 

Baby Formula:
This formula can be prepared for the whole day in cool weather or when a refrigerator is available.  In warm or hot weather, or under unsanitary conditions, it is safer to make a formula 3 times a day.  To do so, add 1/3 cup plus 2 teaspoons of  instant non-fat milk powder to 1-1/3 cups (2/3 pint) of boiled (safe) water, and stir thoroughly.  Then add 1 tablespoon of vegetable oil and 2 teaspoons of sugar, and stir.  If regular dry  milk powder is used, ¼ cup is enough when making one-third of the daily formula, 3 times a day.  If baby bottles are not at hand, milk can be spoon-fed to an infant.

See:  http://www.foodstoragenow.blogspot.com/ for more information. (these are a group of preparedness friends in Cache Valley - so...we can't really order through them. But, could do our own if any of you are interested.)  So far, no one seems to be.  :)  But, I'll keep posting.  :)

Vengance Cometh Speedily

"Behold, vengance cometh speedily upon the inhabitants of the earth, a day of wrath, a day of burning, a day of desolation, of weeping, of mourning, and of lamentation; and as a whirlwind it shall come upon all the face of the earth, saith the Lord." D&C 112:24
