Good Morning everybody. I have just woken up after a sound three hours sleep. Yesterday you know was the Full Moon, and I went to the temple to pray for peace and prosperity worldwide. I also visited the Latter Day Saints chapel in Exhibition Road, SW7. I was carrying an open heart and mind, praying for inspiration to pour in.
The first thing I thought about on waking up was this : Europe is providing a few billion Euros to countries like Turkey and Jordan and Syria to look after the displaced people from the war torn regions who have taken temporary shelter in their lands and are likely to be there for some time, until a solution is found for them to rehabilitate them. With the winter approaching in a short two months in Europe, and which weather the migrants and refugees already find cold compared to their normal towns and villages, they will need better shelter than the tents, and certainly clothing and bedding to keep warm and sleep warm, and gas and petrol burners to use for cooking, as well as plentiful supply of food and drinks. Of course they should also be encouraged to arrange ad hoc teaching of their people, and this will provide continuation of education as well as a sense of community. I feel sure all these sensible people would have already started such initiatives, but government funding will help enormously. In this regard, I have heard that the E.U. is considering providing about Three Billion Euros for the refugee/migrant crisis. I would suggest to them to consider providing perhaps Ten Billion Euros for the purpose in the first year. Perhaps the three billion could be paid in part directly to the displaced people, some to the service providers who have provided the camps and tents, food, drinks, clothing, and perhaps long chairs with mattresses instead of mattresses on the floor, which would be cold and may contribute to hypothermia or T.B. Those people could also do with portable toilets, and toilet rolls, and water and jugs, and baby wipes for purposes of hygiene. Also, some of the money could be put into bank accounts for each individual migrant/refugee, and a bank book issued to each, so it may provide them something for the future. The Ten Billion for the first year could be a Gift from the people of the European Union. Needless to say, such gifts will be necessary in the future, but a start should be made to help those people in their time of need, which is now. On behalf of Europe, chocolates, cakes, biscuits, savouries, tea, coffee, milk, breads, cheese, vegetables, meats, cooking pots, burners for cooking, thermos flasks, portable toilets, warm clothes, tracking shoes, knapsacks, writing books, pencils, textbooks to teach them French, German, Spanish, English, and the dialects of their hosts.....that would do great good (and of course, it will create added activity in those sectors, and that shall use the continual replenishment and prosperity that God and Nature bless the earth with.
I pray for Heavenly Father's and Mother Nature's unbound and limitless beneficience and mercy to continue.
As for the proposed enhancement of the E.C.B. Stimulus, it is evident that perhaps One Hundred and Ten Billion per month would be more up to the task. In this regard, the shortfall of the Stimulus so far could perhaps be issued as a n Extraordinary Stimulus, and used for the economies who are at the moment having to face the huge Migrant/Refugee crisis, with countless people arriving at their doorsteps each day. The policing and administrative burdens are certainly enormous, not to mention the transportation, temporary accommodation, feeding and welfare of the displaced people. If some money from the E.C.B. Stimulus is allocated for these purposes, it can only help to relieve the distress all the people are going through. May God's blessing be upon Europe and her people, as she offers to help those displaced people for the meantime. Also I pray for God's loving kindness and care be also for the displaced people.
I am sure this is only a part of the solution, but I have a belief that this will add to the goodwill of Europe and her people, and hopefully add to the continuation of the economic Recovery, and in course of time leading us all to Prosperity.
Bringing a halt to the mad civil war in Syria and hopefully rehabilitation of the displaced people there, back in their homelands, may prove another part of the solution. By grace of God (who some of us address as Allah, also as our Maker) people will help find a solution for the justice to all these displaced people, which has caused this great exodus of Biblical proportions in these modern times.
I pray for God's guidance to the leaders in Europe, Syria, Russia, and United States to bring this mad war to a close, without further loss of life and destruction of infrastructure.
In the name of our Saviour and Redeemer, Jesus the Christ.
