52 Weeks to Family Preparedness for Two
President Benson, “Wood, coal, gas, oil, kerosene, and even candles are among these items which could be reserved as fuel for warmth, cooking, and light or power. It would also be well to have on hand some basic medical supplies to last for at least a year. I have seen a hungry woman turn down food for a spool of thread. I have seen grown men weep as they ran their hands through the wheat and beans sent to them from Zion America. (Conference Oct, 1973)
Food Storage and Preparedness Challenge Of The Week:
Food Storage Purchase 8 Cans of Meat
