I had this dream two weeks before the July
Convention in Mahomet, Illinois. The dream starts out with me sweeping. We were cleaning.
The people that were helping me were brethren. I did not recognize the faces but I knew
that they were brethren. While we were cleaning, tornado sirens began to go off. I said to
the people, "We must go to the basement. When we arrived there, I looked out and saw
the tornado. It was small and weak, so weak that you could see through it. It hit a
portion of the house but did not have enough strength to do any damage. After the tornado
was gone we went back upstairs and continued cleaning. Again the sirens began to sound and
again I said to the people, "We must go to the basement." Some were hesitant, so
I pulled on one of them by the arm and felt a great urgency as I said, "Lets
go!" I felt that everyone needed to take cover. I am not sure if everyone went down
When I got to the basement, I saw the basement
doors were open. So I went to close them. When I got to the doors I saw that they had
released the children from school to watch the tornado. The children along with other
people were all over the hillsides watching the tornado with no fear, expecting it to be
weak as the first one had been. I then turned and faced the direction they were looking
and I saw an enormous black
tornado. I could not believe the people
were just standing there.
I began to shut the basement doors. There were two
doors and as I was pulling the doors together, two little blond haired children quickly
came in. After I closed the doors, I latched a hook and eye latch and bolted the doors
with a dead bolt. I turned around and saw that I was in a storage area. I went in further,
there was another set of doors and I latched and bolted them as I had the other doors. The
people there in the basement were at peace because they were in a place of safety. Then
the dream was over.
When I awoke, the first thing that came into my
mind was this whole situation with Y2K. I felt that the Y2K problem is the first weak
tornado, and the second big black tornado is something far greater than Y2K.
