I'm a Mormon, and I never heard any such letter last Sunday, but I wouldn't be surprised if they do it next week. Maybe the mail was late :p I'm
also in Canada, so if it was a local or American thing, that could also explain why we didn't hear it here.
And yeah, the Mormon leaders have advised keeping 72-hour kits and a supply of food, just in case you need it. You never know when you might lose
your job and need a cache of food or something like that. I am a little surprised at the specific date though, that isn't typical.
My guess for the announcement is one of the following:
1) They suspect something is coming, for instance, that the rising food prices/shortages in some places might get much worse.
2) They think that not enough people have these kits and want to drive the point home for people to get them, and not be caught with their pants down
in a crisis.
