FHE: Earthquakes & Demijohns


The August 2016 Ensign is full of inspiring stories and great articles about self-reliance. "Emergency Preparedness: Earthquakes and Demijohns," is one of those stories, about following the prophet and reaping the blessings of being prepared. For family home evening tonight, read the story and discuss how Ricardo's family was blessed because his grandmother listened. Click here for the full story.
"A few months before the earthquake, President Spencer W. Kimball (1895–1985) had instructed the Saints throughout the world to store food and water. My grandmother, a recent convert, had listened. From those two demijohns, we were able to supply our family’s needs for a couple of days until emergency assistance arrived. 
"This example of my grandmother’s obedience was a testimony to my father, who later converted to the gospel. Our family has since been sealed in the temple. I am so grateful for my grandmother’s faith and obedience to the call to be prepared."
