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.
Â Ken was called to the Ozarks in 1983 and heralded the call.Â This material is reprinted, with great appreciation, from his website,Â ArkHaven.org, with his permission and blessing.Â I encourage all to visit his site.Â Ken is an excellent source of information and knowledge.Â
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.Â In Arkansas there is extensive agriculture, withÂ many apple orchards and grape vineyards, green bean and spinach fields and canneries to process them.Â 2.5 billion gallons of water surge from the earth daily in this Ozark aquifer system, ensuring thatÂ the springs and creeks that provide more that adequate water to grow these crops. Â ThisÂ off-grid, self sustaining lifestyleÂ has worked successfully for 6000 years of human history.
The OzarksÂ (also referred to asÂ Ozarks Mountain Country, and TheÂ Ozark Plateau) are aÂ physiographicÂ andÂ geologicÂ highland region of the centralÂ United States. It covers much of the southern half ofÂ MissouriÂ and an extensive portion of northwestern and north centralÂ Arkansas. The region also extends westward into northeasternÂ OklahomaÂ and extreme southeasternÂ 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.Â The biggest mountain in the Ozarks wouldnâ€™t make an noticeable bump in the Rocky Mountains or the Alps.Â But the Ozarks have huge advantages over those grand mountain ranges.Â Being in the south there is very little snow and it usually melts the next day.Â 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.Â Tornadoes are rare in the mountainous areas. I grew up in Colorado andÂ visitedÂ the Rockies a lot, but I would pick the Ozarks over the Rockies any day as the ideal place toÂ live.
Look at this map of the USA again and notice the orange spot that signifies the Ozarks.
â€‹Then notice how far away the gulf coast and pacific and atlantic costs and the Canadian boarder are.Â They are hundreds of miles away, isolating the Ozarks from any purported invasion of any sort that some predict.Â This gives the Ozarks a huge advantage over all the other safe areasâ€¦ in my estimation.Â (The orange spots on the map show three different plateaus in the USA.)
