Why the ozarks
Let the Holy Spirit direct you.
Our journey to the Ozarks led us to Ken Uptegrove, a Godly Christian Prophet, that has become a friend and source of council.
Ken was called to the Ozarks in 1983 and heralded the call. This material is reprinted, with great appreciation, from his website, ArkHaven.org, with his permission and blessing. I encourage all to visit his site. Ken is an excellent source of information and knowledge.
We knew when reading his material and visiting the area that we were being spoken to.
The Ozarks are far enough south in the continental USA to allow for two growing seasons and very mild winters. In Arkansas there is extensive agriculture, with many apple orchards and grape vineyards, green bean and spinach fields and canneries to process them. 2.5 billion gallons of water surge from the earth daily in this Ozark aquifer system, ensuring that the springs and creeks that provide more that adequate water to grow these crops. This off-grid, self sustaining lifestyle has worked successfully for 6000 years of human history.
The Ozarks (also referred to as Ozarks Mountain Country, and The Ozark Plateau) are a physiographic and geologic highland region of the central United States. It covers much of the southern half of Missouri and an extensive portion of northwestern and north central Arkansas. The region also extends westward into northeastern Oklahoma and extreme southeastern Kansas.
The Ozarks are called a mountain range, but keep in mind that the average elevation is from 1,000 to 2,000 feet above sea level. The biggest mountain in the Ozarks wouldn’t make an noticeable bump in the Rocky Mountains or the Alps. But the Ozarks have huge advantages over those grand mountain ranges. Being in the south there is very little snow and it usually melts the next day. There are no noticeable earth quakes, never any hurricanes, no forest fires, no flooding except in low areas, long growing season, and lots of rain. Tornadoes are rare in the mountainous areas. I grew up in Colorado and visited the Rockies a lot, but I would pick the Ozarks over the Rockies any day as the ideal place to live.
Look at this map of the USA again and notice the orange spot that signifies the Ozarks.
