Book of Mormon Story
King Benjamin’s address
Read Words of Mormon 1:17-18, Mosiah 2:1-17.
- What was King Benjamin like?
King Benjamin was a righteous king and a holy man. (Sometimes the people in the Book of Mormon lived in a “theocracy,” when their leader served as both a king and a prophet.)
- When the people gathered together to hear King Benjamin speak, where did they pitch their tents?
Around the temple with their tent doors toward the temple
- What did King Benjamin stand on when he spoke? Why?
A tower, so the large multitude of people could hear him
- We are blessed to be able to gather together to hear the counsel of our church leaders.
- We can make preparations for shelter to protect our families in an emergency.
- We should store clothing as part of our emergency storage.
- Sleep out in a tent together. Set a goal to obtain a form of shelter for your 72-hour kits.
- Store essential clothing in your 72-hour kits.
- When possible, plan and store for future clothing needs.
- Fruit Roll-ups (fruit leather)
- Blanket Donuts
- Separate each biscuit from a can of biscuits.
- Smash each biscuit into a round, flat “blanket.”
- Place a chocolate Hershey’s Kiss in the center, pull the “blanket” up over it, and pinch the dough together as well as possible.
- Fry the donuts in warm oil until quite brown to avoid having raw dough in the middle.
- Roll the donuts in powdered sugar.
