We all need to build a personal ark, to fortify ourselves against this rising tide of evil, to protect ourselves and our families against the floodwaters of iniquity around us. And we shouldn’t wait until it starts raining, but prepare in advance..(but).Unfortunately we don’t always heed the clear warnings of our prophets. We coast complacently along until calamity .. We need to calmly continue to move ahead and to prepare for what will surely come. We need not panic or fear, for if we are prepared, spiritually and temporally, we and our families will survive any flood. … W. Don Ladd, “‘Make Thee an Ark’,” Ensign, Nov 1994, 28

President Henry B. Eyring, speaking of 2004 Indian Ocean Tsunami
“The giant earthquake, and the tsunamis it sent crashing into the coasts around the Indian Ocean, is just the beginning and a part of what is to come, terrible as it was. You remember the words from the Doctrine and Covenants which now seems so accurate:

…For after your testimony cometh the testimony of earthquakes…And also cometh the testimony of the voice of thunderings, and the voice of lightnings, and the voice of tempests, and the voice of the waves of the sea heaving themselves beyond their bounds.

“…the Lord has prepared places of safety to which He is eager to guide us.
President Eyring, “Raise the Bar” BYU–Idaho Devotional, January 25, 2005
With the end times “just beginning”, how can we be a blessing to our families and others in these adventurous days ahead?

We hold fast to each other in this great Relief Society. We warn our neighbors in the spirit of love and show them our preparedness skills!
