Hemisphere posted a topic in PreparednessThe church recommends to be prepared in case of disaster or anything likely that would come close to civil unrest or any situation where the civil order is disturbed and interrupted for undetermined periods of time. While having a 72 hour kit recommended, we often sometimes find ourselves caught far away from it, either at work or in traffic or some other circumstances. Some us have one and some us are in the process of establishing it. Some may find it hard due to financial strain to get there. What I would love to suggest to those who haven´t heard of it or who want to make first steps to get acquainted with the topic, would be an every day carry kit. Something you carry on your personage that gets you home to your 72 hour kit or at least provides you with a means of not being completely helpless. It will cost significantly less then a full 72 hour kit but could still range in cost depending on your personal preferences towards material. I do recommend that you get a pouch or a small case that you can carry on your belt or in your bag ( if you are a lady) Usually I would recommend Tasmanian Tiger as it is a solid brand that is durable and of high quality. Within you can store medicine you need or should have in case something happens ( aspirin, diarrhea medication, salt tablets etc.) What I also recommend is a thermal blanket. small enough to fit in there it can keep you either from heat or cold when you get stuck and cant light a fire. Some gauze you will find in mine for minor injuries, along with a fire steel to light fires. Not to forget would be a small flash light. Very important however would still be a knife. You can obtain decent knives for as little as 30$ already ( look into Mora of Sweden) which you can carry, if you have to means and do live in a very urban environment then you would be best served with a multitool, though leatherman is a very good tool, you will find that it will cost accordingly. A middle way here would be the all known Swiss army knife, as it has for a good price decent appliances that will come in handy in the different situations. There is more to add of course however what you will it with depends on your personal need and attitude. Some kits differ from other. While EDC's can contain fire arms some are more geared towards bugging out with maximum evasion in mind for that matter ( shout out to Lehi for pointing out I was using a wrong vocabulary before my edit) , Especially if you live outside the US where laws for guns and weapons are more restrictive. If this interests you and have questions. I will be happy to assist you or provide you with the lead to follow up on your own. Naturally I will adhere to the forums rules and not post pictures that would be akin to commercial, however I am willing to snap a picture or to and upload to a place of your choosing.
eastonellsworth posted a topic in LDS Web LinksHi, I hope it is appropriate to mention my new non-profit organization here - Sweep The Earth. The mission of Sweep The Earth is to help members of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints to fulfill the promise of the Lord to the ancient prophet Enoch regarding our present day: And righteousness will I send down out of heaven; and truth will I send forth out of the earth, to bear testimony of mine Only Begotten … and righteousness and truth will I cause to sweep the earth as with a flood, to gather out mine elect from the four quarters of the earth … – Moses 7:62 We strive to aid in the fulfillment of this divine promise by helping enthusiastic Church members to: 1. Learn about missionary work (D&C 11:21); 2. Share ideas arising from doctrinal study, thoughtful consideration and prayer; 3. Take actions that spread the knowledge of a Savior (Mosiah 3:20) and of the Restoration of the Gospel (2 Ne. 3:12); and 4. Share experiences that they have while taking part in the activities of this community. Our vision is that through our work, LDS Church members will be able to do better, more creative, more effective missionary work by obtaining the word (D&C 11:21), teaching one another good tactics and strategies, sharing creative ideas, and working together with the Lord of the vineyard (Jacob 5:72-73). We hope that Church members will feel great joy as they use our resources to become better at sharing the Gospel with their families, friends and communities. While we focus on serving Church members, we warmly invite anyone who is not a member of the Church to visit our website, take part in discussions and work with us to defend and promote wholesome values on the Web and around the world. We are not an official Church organization, but we support the mission and teachings of the Church in every way. In contrast to the marvelous More Good Foundation, which has always placed special emphasis on the Internet as a missionary tool and seeks to use the Web to inform Church members as well as those who are not, Sweep The Earth gives equal attention to offline and online means of sharing the Gospel, and we have only one target audience - Church members with a passion for missionary work. I invite you to sign up for free at SweepTheEarth.org and participate actively in our member missionary community!
