There used to be a little
newspaper put out, called "The Corner Gathering" that was made up of the
testimonies of others who knew God sent them here. One of those
testimonies is Bill Gothard's telling about
Corrie's vision she
had when a passenger in his airplane. At least three people have
written to me to say they have heard him tell of this incident at one of
That is why I am here, and
that is why so many people come to let me show them this divinely
protected island of survival. As a caution or disclaimer it needs to
be pointed out that there are many Bible passages that speak of divine
covering. But we have to understand them in context. That does
not mean no harm will come to any area within the Ozarks. Relatively
speaking there will be less harm in a major part of the Ozarks. If
you feel led to move to the Ozarks, be sure you know the specific area you
are being called to, and the specific people you are to go into community
with. There are several kinds of communities, but whichever one you
feel led to, be sure you are also led to the people.
Then Elisha prayed and said, "O LORD, I pray, open his eyes that he may
see " And the LORD opened the servant's eyes and he saw; and behold, the
mountain was full of horses and chariots of fire all around Elisha.
~2 Kings 6:17
One more point that rounds
out this testimony. In 1974 the Lord told me that my life's commission was
to prepare His people for a coming total
crash of the economy and society. No one believed
me in 74, 84, or 94. Just a few did in 2004, but now they do ... in
All of these testimonials
were greatly abbreviated so as to make the poignant point. If you want the
full version, I can provide it. We are very blessed to be in a
divinely protected place that was prepared for such a time as this.
Of course there are other safe places around the world. I am just saying
that this is the one I was sent to and was give all this confirmation for.
In 1986 while living on a
blueberry farm, the Lord gave me the name and logo for my ministry.
ArkHaven (in reference to Noah's Ark and the Ark of the covenant) is God's
place of provision, protection, and promise.
In 1999 the Holy Spirit told me that Y2K was
going to be a non-event,
but it would blind people to the REAL event to prepare for.
In eschatological terms,
the times leading into the Tribulation period (from 1948 when Israel
became a nation until the first day of the Tribulation period). The
time is short to adequately prepare for that day, physically, mentally,
and especially spiritually. By preparation I refer to a self sufficient
community of like minded Christians adopting an agrarian lifestyle that
has proven itself to work the best of all lifestyles over the past 6,000
years. And since I am an Acts model (the whole book) Christian, I wish to
go into community with other Acts model Christians.
I would rather be one year too early than 10 minutes too late in moving
where God told me to go.

The above map shows the
purported location of three of the five divinely protected areas in the
USA, North West Arkansas being one of them. The next map shows the
other two areas.
Here is the story behind
this map: A friend of mine gave me a copy of this map around 1990.
A friend of his says five prophetic men (who did not know each other and
had never met) where directed by the Holy Spirit to meet with each other
hotel in Chicago.
After they arrived and discerned who the others were, they rented a room
and began to discuss the things the Holy Spirit had directed them to share
with each other.
One of the things they
purportedly discussed was divinely protected areas where Christians
would go to not just survive when national disaster struck, but to save a
lot of lives and to
Christ to the refugees that would gather there at that time.
They turned to the page on
an Atlas map that shows the continental United States and each in turn
drew a circle around an area the Holy Spirit had shown them to be a
The map is like prophecy and
needs to be judged as such. In fact, it was generated by purportedly
prophetic brothers at the meeting in Chicago. Even if I had the
source, it would make no difference. It’s either supported by the
Holy Spirit, or it isn’t.
Keep in mind that this does
not mean there are not more divinely protected areas in the USA, or that
these circled areas are entirely accurate. I can only attest to the
one area I personally was shown, and that is the North West corner of
Arkansas, an area much smaller that the area shown on the above map.
The Holy Spirit called this divinely protected area "A Green Island of
It can be a matter of
semantics as to what terms we use to define these relatively safe areas.
Here are some terms I have heard: safe spots spotted across the globe.
Safe areas, locations, divinely protected areas, places of refuge, Goshen,
Arks, angel covering or covered, hidden from danger, etc. But the
most descriptive term of all is ... Green Island of Survival!

be far less affected than others. So there will be safer places within

Corrie ten Boom Prophecies over North West Arkansas
Here are some
prophecies over north west Arkansas that you will find interesting.
I (Ken) have known Julie Turner for around 25 years, and my testimony
is also in her Corner Gathering newspaper. I also knew Joseph
Heath. He interviewed me and wrote an article on my testimony,
and he published a number of my articles around 20 years ago.
The Lord told me to move to north west Arkansas in 1983 (from
Illinois), and I finally made the move in 85. But I had made
several trips here before that time and met a man who told me about
Corrie ten Boom, etc. There are several versions of the Corrie
ten Boom vision (that have become ledgend) out there, so as a
disclaimer let me say that the account I was told was told to me
face-to-face by the man who was a ghost writer for Corrie.
He told me he was present with Corrie when she had this vision.
Yet, just to be cautious and fair, the lady who was Corrie's care take
for the last 7 years of her life said Corrie never was in Arkansas.

DESCRIPTION OF THE OZARK MOUNTAINS
The Ozarks (also
referred to as Ozarks Mountain Country, the Ozark Mountains, and the
Ozark Plateau) are a
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 wooded
Shawnee Hills of southwest
Illinois, though commonly called the "Illinois Ozarks," are
generally not considered part of the true Ozarks.
Although referred to
as the Ozark Mountains, the region is actually a high and deeply
dissected plateau. Geologically, the area is a broad
dome around the
Saint Francois Mountains.
The Ozark Highlands
area, covering nearly 47,000 square miles (122,000 km2), is by far the
most extensive mountainous region between the
Appalachians and the
Together, the Ozarks
Ouachita Mountains form an area known as the
U.S. Interior Highlands, and are sometimes referred to collectively.
For example, the
Ozark Mountain Forests includes the Ouachita Mountains, although the
Arkansas River valley and the Ouachitas, both south of the
Boston Mountains, are not usually considered part of the Ozarks.
Ozark also refers to
a region of people with a distinct culture,
dialect shared by the people who live on the plateau. Early settlers
American pioneers who came West from the
Southern Appalachians at the beginning of the 19th century,
followed in the 1840s and 1850s by
German immigrants. Much of the Ozark original population is of English,
Scots-Irish, and German descent, often including some
Native American ancestry, and the Ozark families from which the
regional culture derived
tend to have lived in the area since the 19th century.

BEST PLACES TO DRILL FOR A
WATER WELL IN THE OZARKS
Where to Research
A lot can be determined by some good old-fashioned research. There’s
actually a fair amount of information about groundwater available
online. The first source to try is the
U.S. Geological Survey (USGS).
groundwater map can be seen at:
They publish quite a bit of data
about groundwater, including a groundwater atlas of the country which
shows all the aquifers. There also are a number of
can be useful.
The USGS also has a network of several thousand test wells that they
monitor on a constant basis. These wells provide data on water table
levels and aquifer levels. They can provide you with information about
what the exact water level is at the time of drilling and whether it is
In addition to federal information, many states also have information
about groundwater availability. What exact information is available will
depend on the state you live in. But many states require a permit for
well drilling, which means they have a database of all wells, their
depths, the water quality and the amount of water flow they produce.
This information can be useful in determining what the average depth is
in your area. Simply look for several wells that are nearby.
One way this data may be presented is a “water availability map”
which shows how much groundwater availability there is for any one area,
as well as the depth of that water. This is the type of information that
a hydrologist would use in creating a study of your land.
Of course, well drilling contractors have a pretty good idea about
the water conditions in your area, where water can be found, the
underground geology, and how deep of a well you’ll need to reach good
water. While they would rather drill the well for you, most will act as
consultants for a fee.
There is an incredible amount of controversy over the subject of
dowsing, often referred to in the negative sense as water witching.
This ancient practice is seen by many to be just to the left of
witchcraft. But the practice has been in use for hundreds, if not
thousands, of years.
Water dousers use a
forked stick, a pair of bent wires, or a plumb bob to find where to
drill a well. When using the forked stick, the stick bends towards the
ground when they pass over water. With the wires, the wires cross. So
there is a clear indication of where water can be found.
The idea has been
studied scientifically, with surprising results. A lot depends on how
the actual test was conducted. In tests where they are expected to find
water in underground pipes, water dousers are unsuccessful. But when
they are asked to find naturally-occurring water in the ground, their
success rate is much too high to be
There is a
nationwide organization of water dowsers, called the
American Society of
Dowsers (ASD). The society has more than 4,200 members and may be

descriptive characteristic of this passage, you will see for your self

Nobody has the time, or the resources to make a really bad
mistake on this issue. Please study it carefully, before proceeding.
The extremely late-in-the-game idea of Montana, Wyoming, etc suddenly
being advertised as "The Redoubt States," is not a good one. Think about
it like this: With the Super Bowl coming up...you pick the year & the
winning team, i.e. the 1985 Bears, the Steelers in 75, 78, or 79, 76
Raiders, 72 Dolphins, 66 Packers, you get the idea...the week before the
Super Bowl of that year, the head coach of the challenging team decides
to change all their plays, change quarterbacks for a rookie, and not
bother to require practice all week before the game. What would be their
chances of success? The same exact scenario is playing out right now,
except that instead of a fat ring on their left hand (or not) and a few
grand, people are risking their life fortune as well as the lives of
Even a superficial study of geography, military strategy, and history
would readily prove that. People are planning to move to the border of
this country; a border which will prove to be far more dangerous than
the Southern border. Study the Canadian Highways; what is there to
prevent Russia from traversing Canada in force? NOTHING. What is the
next force they will encounter? Flathead Valley, with a few ill-prepared
preppers to man the Redoubt which they have been suckered into? How long
would they last?
2. Consider all of
these diverse factors that also line up with water supplies: rainfall,
streams, ponds, wells, an aquifer system that guarantees that anywhere
you drill, you will get water, and over 20 springs over a million
gallons an hour:
ONLY the 1st, 2nd, & 3rd magnitude springs, there is 2.5 BILLION
GALLONS OF WATER PER DAY COMING OUT OF THE GROUND -CREATING RIVERS,
fishing? Just live near one of the many trout hatcheries....
3. Consider all of these
diverse factors that also line up with reality of the situation: i.e.,
the only thing in reality which can happen for millions of families, to
flee by car, and on foot (I put it like this: You Can Drive Now Or Walk
Later) to a common region which is capable of supporting huge numbers of
4. Consider all of these
diverse factors that also line up with what Jesus said to do: >...when
you see these things, flee to the mountains...<
Then...try to apply ALL OF THOSE criteria to ANY OTHER
REGION, OR COUNTRY, OR LAND MASS, OR ANY LOCATION OF ANY KIND ANYWHERE
ON THIS PLANET...AND COMPARE THE RESULTS OF BOTH >SCORES< IF YOU WILL.
You will find that there is no comparison whatever.
There is no region, nor has there ever existed on this planet a region
like this one at this most crucial juncture point in time and space...
In FACT; there is no other place on this planet where there is a valley
which is so huge that it can be seen from space, which runs east and
west, and which was caused by a huge mountain mass being split, one side
to the north, and one to the south. Interesting, utterly unique, and
most singular peculiarity, that... indeed, it
can be called an anomaly, even a singularity!!!
In summary, this is from the Ozarks’
first online magazine!
"These old hills are home to a people...."
Succinct, actually, short, sweet, hard to beat.
I like the conclusion, especially the last passage;
Life in these hills was hard.
Out of that hardness was bred a people —
a people defined as stalwart,
A people self-reliant.
To define the Ozark region by its culture?
Some would say these peoples are a microcosm of all that makes the
United States what it is.
This State of the Ozarks.<
I have heard it said, in regard to Missouri, but specifically the
Plateau, "we could close the borders and be just fine." Geographically,
demographically, etc, SW MO, along with a chunk of NW AR, some of NE OK,
and SE KS, and you have an extremely cohesive region, with borders
defined by the terrain, water, ranches, farms, forests, and people who
OCCUPY that region.
We need to localize food, industry, energy and currency. If we do that,
we may someday see a people, and a region, with a vast difference in its
"survival quotient" from the rest of the nation. This area has
traditionally been considered one of the poorest and roughest areas of
the country to make a living.
I hold that is perhaps the wealthiest, and
certainly safest place to ride out the storms headed our way.

the meaning of the word "refugium" is refuge or hideaway; in some
cases known as wellness area for relaxation and recovering. (Refugias:

The Ozark mountains are in fact hills and wouldn't make a noticeable
bump on the mountains of
Afghanistan, or the Rock Mountains. The elevation of the Ozark
mountains is around 1,000 to 2,000 feet, well above flooding levels, but
a four wheeler can drive to the top of most of them. And being in
a southern state we have very little snow, and what we do get will melt
the next day. So from the
perspective of being defensible physically, as those great mountain
ranges are, that is a little far fetched. Physically no!

variations on the theme of
Futurist flooded areas on the North American continent. Quite
frankly I am very skeptical of all of them. But since this is
believed or anticipated as a possibility by so many, it seemed helpful
to offer these maps.

B. Geologists Tell Us That The Ozark Plateau
Was Indeed Once An Island
An Interesting bit of Ozark Plateaus History:

complexes occur in the sedimentary layers surrounding this ancient
in the region attests that the Ozark Plateau was above sea level for
several hundred million years....
The seas encroached during the late Cambrian producing the LaMotte
sandstone, 200 to 300 feet (61 to 91 m) thick, followed by
formed around the granite and rhyolite islands in this Cambrian sea.
Arkansas is notable for the karstic features. Many of these features
include sinkholes, conduit springs, and large caves. A sinkhole can be
defined as an oval shaped depression that is formed from the dissolution
of carbonate bedrock. The Ozark aquifer has generally less sinkholes
than the Springfield aquifer. These sinkholes are important because this
is where recharge enters the aquifer directly. Springs are also a major
aspect of the aquifer system. Springs are where discharge from the
aquifer flow to the surface and emerge out onto the surface of the land.
Many of these springs are located on the sides of steep valleys. Mammoth
Spring is the largest spring in Arkansas. It's discharge is around 100
cubic feet per second or more. Another feature of this area are the
caves. There are more than 1,000 caves in northern Arkansas. Some of
these caves have been said to reach about 1,000 feet below the land
surface. Recharge through these sinkholes can reach extreme volumes (Renken,
1998). In Missouri, karst can be noticed in the southern section of the
state. Missouri is more susceptible to contamination through karst
features because there are more mature karst features in the state
compared with Arkansas (Davis and Witt, 2005)
In high population areas in the Ozark
Plateau the water level is going down due to overuse, so it is advisable
to buy land in low and/or stable population areas where a lot of
population growth is not expected. It might be wise to call a well
drilling company in the area you are interested in to see where they
have found the best wells.

2. INFORMATION ON THE OZARK PLATEAU & US
Introduction: the Ozark Plateaus are part of what is called
The U.S. Interior Highlands:
"The U.S. Interior Highlands is a mountainous region spanning eastern
Oklahoma, western and northern Arkansas, southern Missouri, and the
extreme southeast corner of Kansas. The name is designated by the United
States Geological Survey to refer to the combined mountainous region of
the Ozarks and Ouachita Mountains, which form a distinct physiographic
division. It is the only major highland region between the Rocky
Mountains and the Appalachian Mountains in the United States.
The Ozarks (also referred to as Ozarks Mountain Country, the Ozark
Mountains, 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.
Although referred to as the Ozark Mountains, the region is actually a
high and deeply dissected plateau (IE, IT IS A SINGLE MOUNTAIN WHICH HAS
BEEN SPLIT IN TWO, ONE PART TO THE NORTH, AND ONE PART TO THE SOUTH.
THIS IS A MOST STRANGE AND PECULIAR THING; AS IT IS THE ONLY MOUNTAIN
(RANGE) ON THE ENTIRE PLANET WITH A VALLEY RUNNING EAST AND WEST. IT IS
LARGE ENOUGH TO BE VISIBLE FROM SPACE).
Geologically, the area is a broad dome around the Saint Francois
Mountains. The Ozark Highlands area, covering nearly 47,000 square miles
(122,000 km2), is by far the most extensive mountainous region between
the Appalachians and the Rocky Mountains. Together, the Ozarks and
Ouachita Mountains form an area known as the U.S. Interior Highlands,
and are sometimes referred to collectively. For example, the ecoregion
called Ozark Mountain Forests includes the Ouachita Mountains, although
the Arkansas River valley and the Ouachitas, both south of the Boston
Mountains, are not usually considered part of the Ozarks.
The Ozark Highlands region comprises the southern half of Missouri,
northern third of Arkansas, and a small fraction of northeastern
Oklahoma, and southeaster Kansas, which geographers generally delimit by
the Missouri on the north, the Mississippi on the east, the Grand on the
Geographic characteristics that distinguish the Ozarks as a region
include the general ruggedness and vertical topography, and the relative
age of surface rocks being older than those in adjoining areas.
3. PEOPLE OF THE OZARKS HISTORICALLY
UNAFFECTED BY NATIONAL DISASTER
here tale begins in the summer of that year... whatever year it was...
The year don't matter....
The national situation don't even matter, because even though we were
smack dab in the middle of what we’ve been told was the Depression,
folks in the Ozarks was so poor to begin with that they scarcely
No, that's not right, because poverty’s so relative. A better way to
put it is that folks in the Ozarks still had everything they needed to
subsist and endure, and they didn't want for nothing. So they didn’t
even know that people elsewhere all over the country was suffering
Harington’s “Vance Randolph” character in Butterfly Weed1
After supper Uncle Greene . . . began speaking of the Ozarks. ‘Used to
be a real happy land for us outlaws,’ he recalled. ‘But for us
reformed sons of bitches no country ain’t no great sight better than
no other country . . . But I still say . . . that whichever the
country, hit’s the backhills that stay interestin’ and closest to
everlastin’ . . .’
Morrow Wilson in The Bodacious Ozarks2
The other factor, of utmost importance, is the population base of
similar mind set people with similar values. The people that settled
these ancient mountains were from races of people known throughout all
of mans history as having the mindset of liberty and the resources,
and the wherewithal, read courage, to confront and resist, the one
world order, Imperial Roman Mindset.
THAT point, is where the typical survivalist is DEAD
wrong. The great survivalist leader who lives in Wyoming, brags about
the fact that there are only FIVE PEOPLE PER SQUARE MILE (PPSM) AROUND
HIM!!! Similar is the big push to move to Montana. These men show maps
of satellite pics at night, and say: go where there are no lights. My
son said, hey dad, they could go to North Korea using that logic. So
you see the Problem here??? The problem is that these people see other
people, in essence, their neighbors as the enemy. They will pay in
blood, unfortunately, not all their own, for basing their entire
approach to survival, on nothing based on history, nothing based on geography, nothing based on military strategy or tactics, nothing based on
common sense, and possibly most telling, nothing based on counsel from any sacred writings.
OZARKS THE GREATEST PLACE ON THE PLANET FOR SURVIVAL AGRICULTURE
While the region has advanced technologically, the Ozarks remain a haven
for agrobiodiverse farmers and gardeners. (SURVIVAL AGRICULTURE)
Five years of applied agricultural anthropology research in different
locales of the Arkansas and Missouri Ozarks reveals three clearly
interconnected characteristics integral to traditional subsistence in
the region: agroecological knowledge, diversity, and frugality. These
values allowed Ozarkers of historical times to survive, and they permit
contemporary hill dwellers an alternative to the industrial food system.
WOULD YOU WANT TO LIVE IN THE INTERIOR HIGHLANDS?
For anyone who reads a modicum of history, both parts of this question
are rhetorical. Why highlands, and why the interior?
As to Highlands: "Montani Semper Liberi" is
the state motto of W Virginia:
Jesus said to flee to the mountains when you see these things begin to
come on the earth. Should we need a better reference than that? Do we
always need to understand everything, or do we need to just obey?

"Why can't you just buy your milk at the store
like everyone else?" the woman said. It utterly amazes me how many
preppers and survivalists really do not take food, or water into
consideration at all. Hey, food does not come from the grocery store,
folks. And water does not come from a faucet.
When the trucks stop rolling, and power goes
off, you will have neither. Live where you can provide both for your
The Ozarks sit on aquifer systems, almost
exactly the same size and shape as the Plateau itself. The geology of
the region is such that 2.5 Billion Gallons of water surge from the
earth daily. Do you seriously think that is an accident? A coincidence
of fate? I think not. When the breadbasket of this nation turns into a
gigantic dust bowl / desert as the Ogallala Aquifer keeps going dry,
water, and the ability to provide food for consumption and trade will
become a new measure of wealth. I see Providence at work from before the
foundations of the earth being laid.

GOING INTO A MINI ICE AGE"
For years scientists and government
officials have told us the earth is warming, and the mainstream media
has fallen in line, castigating and even laughing at anyone who suggests
But there's a growing body of thought
that the general wisdom is not only wrong, but embarrassingly so – and
that the earth is getting colder.
In fact, one prominent scientist says
Earth is on the front edge of a 30-year cold trend that could have a
major impact on our food supply and survival,
making summers cooler and winters almost unbearable.
His name is John L. Casey. His
new book, "Dark Winter: How The Sun Is Causing A 30-Year Cold Spell,”
flips everything you've heard about global warming on its head.
A former NASA consultant and White
House advisor, Casey tells us:
How 30 years of colder weather could
devastate America's crops.
Why weather patterns from 200 years
ago can help predict weather for the coming decades.
Whether he believes we're on the
verge of a small ice age.
How the 1645 freezing of the London
Thames River could give us hints of what is to come.
Why severe earthquakes and volcanoes
could follow the cold trend.
This is just one more good
reason to move to the Ozarks where the winters and summers are mild and
the growing season is long. I have sensed in my spirit that there
were more reasons than the ones discussed on this page why God moved me
here in 1985, and this could be one of them.
