"The revelation to store food may be as essential to our temporal salvation today as boarding the ark was to the people in the days of Noah."

"When will all these calamities stirke?  We do not know the exact time, but it appears it may be in the not-too-distant future.Those who are prepared NOW have the continuing blessings of early obedience, and they are ready. Noah built his ark BEFORE the flood came, and he and his family survived. Those who waited to act until after the flood began were too late. "

President Ezra Taft Benson "Prepare Ye"


"What were the most valuable items in the days of starvation in Germany?"
#1 - Vegetable Oil  ... as for what we needed, the food item we relied on most was vegetable oil. With a bottle of vegetable oil, one could acquire nearly every other desirable item."
#2 - Grains
#3 - Honey
#4 - Powered Milk
- We need to take into consideration that in difficult times, so long as there survives more than one family, there will be trading of valuable items. "

Elder F. Enzio Busche - "How Beautiful to Live in These Times and Be Prepared!"


"I cannot forget the great lesson of Pharaoh's dream of the fat and lean kine and of the full and withered stalks of corn. I cannot dismiss from my mind the grim warnings of the Lord as set forth in the 24th chapter of Matthew.I am familiar, as are you, with the declarations of modern revelation that the time will come when the earth will be cleansed and there will be indescribable distress, with weeping and mourning and lamentation (see D&C 112:24)."

"Are these perilous times? They are but there is no need to fear. We can have peace in our hears and peace in our homes. We can be an influence for good in this world, everyone of us."

 President Gordon B. Hinckley - "The Times in Which We Live"


"The hearts of men have turned to their fathers in fulfillment of the words of Malachi.

The vision of Joel has been fulfilled wherein he declared:

"And it shall come to pass afterward, that I will pour out my spirit upon all flesh; and your sons and your daughters shall prophesy, your old men shall dream dreams, your young men shall see visions:

"And also upon the servants and upon the handmaids in those days will I pour out my spirit.
"And I will shew wonders in the heavens and in the earth, blood, and fire, and pillars of smoke.
"The sun shall be turned into darkness, and the moon into blood, before the great and the terrible day of the Lord come.
"And it shall come to pass, that whosoever shall call on the name of the Lord shall be delivered: for in mount Zion and in Jerusalem shall be deliverance, as the Lord hath said, and in the remnant whom the Lord shall call" (Joel 2:28–32)."

 President Gordon B. Hinckley - "Living in the Fulness of Times"


"Maintain a year's supply. The Lord has urged that his people save for the rainy days, prepare for the difficult times, and put away for emergencies, a year's supply or more of bare necessities so that when comes the flood, the earthquake, the famine, the hurricane, the storms of life, our families can be sustained through the dark days.

How many of us have complied with this?
We strive with the Lord, finding many excuses:
·         We do not have room for storage.
·         The food spoils.
·         We do not have the funds to do it.
·         We do not like these common foods.
·         It is not needed –
·         there will always be someone to help in trouble.
·         The government will come to the rescue.
·         And some intend to obey but procrastinate.

We encourage families to have on hand this year's supply;
and we say it over
and over
and over
and repeat over
and over the scripture of the Lord where he says,
"Why call ye me, Lord, Lord, and do not the things which I say?"
(Luke 6:46.)

President Spencer W. Kimball
 - "Why Call Me Lord, Lord, and Do Not the Things Which I Say?"


"As long as I can remember, we have been taught to prepare for the future and to obtain a year's supply of necessities ...I believe the time to disregard this counsel is over. With the events in the world today, it must be considered with all seriousness ...

Create a plan if you don't already have one, or update your present plan ... We are not in a situation that requires panic buying but we do need to be careful in purchasing and rotating the storage that w're putting away."
