72 hour kit assembly

Our first offer of the 72 hour kits was a BIG success.  
We had over 230 kits ordered.  
We had a great turn out for the assembly on Friday, 
September 27th.  Husbands joined 
wives and the missionaries showed up and did 
they ever help!! Sister Baird and Sister Neilson spent 
about 1 1/2 hours in the morning repacking the kit to get 
everything in it.  We decided we had to do an assembly 
line to get them each packed in the exact same way.  
It worked and everyone pitched in and we couldn't have 
been successful with out each and every one who showed 
up and worked their little hearts out.  

Thank you, each and every one you!!!

The items set up waiting for assembly.

Let the assembly begin

And they worked,

and worked,

and worked.

We even had fun!!

And laughed thru out the night!!

We ran out of a few items. Many stuck around till more 
were delivered. And we got back to work.

All along, the bags were being sealed.

All 230 plus!!

We didn't go home till they were all fill and sealed!!

And then we were done.  They were handed out to those who purchased.  
We cleaned up.  And we went home.  Some a little more beat than others.  
But we were very happy with a very successful Provident Living Activity.

Again, a very heartfelt sincere thank you to all who purchased them
and helped to fill them and make this a success.  

I believe it is time, and perhaps with some urgency, to review the counsel we have received in dealing with our personal and family preparedness. We want to be found with oil in our lamps sufficient to endure to the end. President Spencer W. Kimball admonished us:
“In reviewing the Lord’s counsel to us on the importance of preparedness, I am impressed with the plainness of the message. The Savior made it clear that we cannot place sufficient oil in our preparedness lamps by simply avoiding evil. We must also be anxiously engaged in a positive program of preparation.”      L.Tom Perry October 1995
