This has been a season of challenges and trials, and we have all learned alot about who we are and what we are capable of. In his October 2020 General Conference address, Elder Bednar said,
The year 2020 has been marked, in part, by a global pandemic that has proved, examined, and tried us in many ways. I pray that we as individuals and families are learning the valuable lessons that only challenging experiences can teach us. I also hope that all of us will more fully acknowledge the “greatness of God” and the truth that “he shall consecrate [our] afflictions for [our] gain.”4
Two basic principles can guide and strengthen us as we face proving and trying circumstances in our lives, whatever they may be: (1) the principle of preparation and (2) the principle of pressing forward with a steadfastness in Christ." Elder Bednar
As a Mount Mahogany Stake Self-Reliance Committee, we would like to support and guide you in the principle of preparation. Elder Bednar goes on to say,
Some Church members opine that emergency plans and supplies, food storage, and 72-hour kits must not be important anymore because the Brethren have not spoken recently and extensively about these and related topics in general conference. But repeated admonitions to prepare have been proclaimed by leaders of the Church for decades. The consistency of prophetic counsel over time creates a powerful concert of clarity and a warning volume far louder than solo performances can ever produce.
We are going to work to get prepared in 12 Steps in 2022.
Please join us in the efforts.
