Now is the time to Prepare!!

 

A prudent person foresees danger and takes precautions. The simpleton goes blindly on and suffers the consequences.  
Proverbs 22:3

Are  you prepared?  Do you have an emergency plan?  Fuel prices rising, inflation bearing down on us, food shortages predicted to get worse - meat shortages, food distribution plants everywhere catch fire?  You don't have to look far to see the writing on the wall.  

The bible is clear.  God gives us ample notice and warnings if we are listening.  He shows us things to come so we can prepare.   

Matthew 25: “At that time the kingdom of heaven will be like ten virgins who took their lamps and went out to meet the bridegroom.Five of them were foolish and five were wise. The foolish ones took their lamps but did not take any oil with them. The wise ones, however, took oil in jars along with their lamps.The bridegroom was a long time in coming, and they all became drowsy and fell asleep.“At midnight the cry rang out: ‘Here’s the bridegroom! Come out to meet him“Then all the virgins woke up and trimmed their lamps. The foolish ones said to the wise, ‘Give us some of your oil; our lamps are going out.’“‘No,’ they replied, ‘there may not be enough for both us and you. Instead, go to those who sell oil and buy some for yourselves.’10 “But while they were on their way to buy the oil, the bridegroom arrived. The virgins who were ready went in with him to the wedding banquet. And the door was shut. 11 “Later the others also came. ‘Lord, Lord,’ they said, ‘open the door for us!’ 12 “But he replied, ‘Truly I tell you, I don’t know you.’ 13 “Therefore keep watch, because you do not know the day or the hour

This isn't a sales pitch!  In 2007, the Lord showed me that we would see famine.  He was and has been preparing Ken and I to be Josephs's.  To be a place of refuge.  To have a property that we can potentially house upwards of 200 families.  To be self sustaining and be able to feed the masses.  It seemed pretty far off and never did I imagine that I would begin to see the beginning of birth pangs towards that vision this soon.   

Since moving to Montana, I cannot tell you the number of people God has sent to our little valley who have a similar call and vision.  I know this number is exponential across the country because God is connecting many of us.  God has been preparing His people to be light in the darkness, to be refuge to those in need.  He is our source of provision!   We have to be able to hear and heed His voice! 

That has been a lesson the Lord has been teaching us since we first accepted His invitation to know Him.  I've shared before but briefly God immediately connected me to different financial ministries (The Signatry (formerly Servant Christian), Generous Giving, Crown Ministries and more.  All of which deepened our understanding of biblical principles and greater measure of stewardship of the resources He provides.  He has taken us from pretty well off to having nothing.  No income, no resources and yet we came through with no debt.  Moving us to Montana has been a little change, some income and a little debt due to increasing costs.  It has made us to be more appreciative of His goodness and care for us.  Having a little debt right now, though not comfortable with it, has given me a fresh appreciation for others who are in bondage to their circumstances.   It's not our place to judge but to show mercy and kindness! 

We, the Church need to be the Church once again.  We have slacked off in our responsibilities  to help those in need.  I'm not saying we don't at all, but we have failed.  I heard or read somewhere years ago, if the people who call themselves Christians would tithe even 2% of their income, we could end world hunger, poverty and homelessness.  That's a sobering thought.  How many of us don't tithe at all?  Yikes!    I remember when I first got saved.  We didn't know what the word tithe meant.  We were watching a Joyce Meyer's teaching and she started talking about the tithe.  My older brother then asked if were tithing and we asked him what that meant. He told us 10% of our gross income.   Well, back then I was pretty legalistic - not knowing God's grace yet.... and I calculated how much that would be and gave a back tithe to my church from the day I got saved until that day.  LOL!!    I don't look at the 10% number now, I give what the Lord asks of me.  If that is 10% or 50% or even more at times, that's what I do.  It's ALL His.  He is faithful.    

Last month the Lord had me give away almost all I made with Thrive Life.  And the money I make for Facebook Marketing is used to pay the self employment tax.  Needless to say, I didn't get to bank much for our upcoming trip.   He had also told me that my Facebook jobs would be coming to an end.  I'm not trying to end them, and I'm always looking for new work.... but recently one of my largest accounts told me that she couldn't continue to keep me on.  I wasn't surprised.   Right before vacation Lord? Really?  We also got hit with an emergency $600 car repair.   So here we are trusting God to provide not only for everyday bills but for the trip that we've committed too. It's probably going to be the last time we see family and friends in that area.  Ssssh surprise for Ken's folks.  They don't know we are coming for the family reunion.  

So what's all this got to do with preparing.  First and foremost, we need to prepare our hearts - prepare by reading God's word more and getting fresh revelation on what He wants us to do. What's our part?  What role do we play?  What will we do to be the body of Christ when things hit the fan? Will be a light in the darkness or will be frantic and panicking too?

Saw this on Facebook... good word picture
Secondly, we need to prepare for food shortages for our immediate family and those that may refuge with us.  Thrive Life is a mormon based company and they are very much forward thinkers.  Whether they hear and know the Holy Spirit or not, I do not know but they seem to.  They are anticipating exponential growth in the next 3 years.  That's good for those of us working for them, but it's also more eye opening because that means they are foreseeing something others may not be.  They are getting ready to launch worldwide and have food supply for 2  years out.  This tells me that we should also be prepared and have 1-2 years food supply and other supplies such as medicines, money, water and first aid.  

Third, we need to be part of a community of like-minded believers who have each other's backs.  Things could get rough. Desperation leads people to do things they wouldn't otherwise.  I am so thankful we have a home group that is continuously growing deeper with each other. We come alongside each other and help wherever there is a need.  We also help others in the valley.  We recently had a work day where we gathered to help this couple who recently moved here with much "cleanup" around the property, painting a barn and building fences for the livestock.  We need to push up our sleeves and get our hands dirty.  If you're not connected to something like this, I urge you to start.  We will need each other if things get bad as they are forecasting.  

Here are a few articles that show of things to come:

Would you please pray for our timeshares to sell (see below) and for a greater income stream. We are feeling the pinch!!! And please, how can we pray for YOU? I am so blessed when you email me or reach out for prayer. Thank YOU

   Email me at michele@wantinsight.com or call me 913 980 4440.

1.  Facebook Marketing - which I have room for one or two more accounts - this is where I help market your business or ministry on Facebook.  I have had 30+ years sales and marketing and the last 8 years doing Facebook. I took over 40 hours of training and am still actively pursuing further knowledge on how to increase traffic to your page and build a customer base.  I have had huge success with several companies over the years.  I am really geared towards small business.   So if you know of anyone who might want my services, I'd love to chat.

2.  Thrive Life - long term food storage.   This is great for people who don't like the preparation to cook meals everyday, great for singles & families - no waste, fresh food.  25 year shelf life unopened & 1 year opened (with just a few exceptions).   Kids even love this - they'll eat vegetables right out of the can.   This food is amazing!  You can buy other products in the big box stores or online, but if you were to compare side by side - you would find this is far superior in quality and nutrition.  Thrive Life is the leading company out there.  They are proactive -and offer non-gmo foods.  They are a great company to work for.  For those that know me, know I am a foodie.   I've tried many other companies brands before I found this and this is the product I believe in and KNOW is good!   

 You can check out my website at https://michelecole.thrivelife.com.   There are 3 ways that help me.        You can have a tasting party - and I can do it even long distance - over zoom! 

     a.  Be a customer - start a monthly delivery (can skip months) with a budget you can afford and prepare for what's here and coming.    If you bought from me before but went inactive, we can reactivate your account under my name.    By choosing monthly delivery  over $99 you get free shipping & a 15% discount.  They offer monthly sales that are worth looking at too!   Even the news channels are reporting to expect food shortages!!!!!  

     b.  Refer people to my website who may want to store food.  If you are a customer, you get a referral link.  When you share that link -you get discounts and free food when they order.  (a lady here had earned $1000+ in free food) 

     c.  Become a consultant - hear me out - you don't have to sell unless you want too.  People become consultants for several reasons.  One - they get paid 5% on everything they spend over $50. Did you hear that - you get paid on your own orders.  Two - if you share with friends and family you can build a residual income & earn free food.  Especially in the first 100 days.  Three - some (me) are wanting this to be a way to earn serious cash.  Yes, this is a MLM company - but there compensation plan can be quite lucrative.  I'm still learning all about this... there are some consultants who are "inactive" and still making 6 figures off residual sales  That would be my goal - not to be inactive -but to make a nice living so we can really step into full time ministry when God opens that door.  This would fund that!  

3.  We are trying to sell our timeshares.  We have two.  We have moved away from the area and there is no chance we will get back to use them.  

     Branson - http://rocklane.com/branson-yacht-club/

     2 bedroom, 2 full bath - sleeps 6, full amenities, kitchen, wifi - on the lake - beautiful views.  Down the street from Silver Dollar City.  Quite, peaceful location.   You get to use it 1 week every ODD year for life (but they are flexible on that).  You can also break it up to 3 nights and 4 nights in any given year.  Annual dues $330.  We are asking $5000 (includes closing costs).  Will consider other offers.  You can rent it out when not using yourself and get $500-$750 a week.  We've done that often throughout the years.  This is something you own and can pass down through inheritance.  You can also subscribe to RCI and trade this week for anywhere else.  We did that a couple of times. Branson has great trading ability.  

    Lake of the Ozarks -       http://www.lakeview-resort.com

    This is a studio condo- sleeps 4 - but more comfortable for just 2.  Kitchen & bath.  On the lake - full amenities.  Great out of the way location.  Annual dues $230.  We are asking $3500 (includes closing costs).  This is 1 week a year anytime for life.  

 

Please let me know how I can pray for you - and how I can celebrate God's goodness with you! 

Hugs, love and prayers.

Vision

God has given us a vision to build a retreat property along with ministry equipping center.  

The retreat portion of our ministry is to provide a safe place for pastors, lay leaders & other ministry folks to come and be refreshed & encouraged through prophetic ministry (if wanted).  We will offer private cabins with kitchens & full bathrooms, and plenty of places to roam on the property to get quiet with the Lord. 

We will offer other specialty retreats - marriage, healing, prophetic teaching & activating people into the world & health and wellness retreats and more.  

The Lord has graced us with the desire to come alongside the Church - to bring healing, deliverance & freedom to new/newer believers.  We are not wanting to replace their church, but better help them be ready to serve in their church. 

In our community building - we will eventually have a 24/7 prayer room, healing & prophetic rooms and a place for community worship services for those on the property.  

Our passion is to minister to a lost & hurting world.   To equip the saints to do the same and to be a blessing to our community and surrounding areas.  Our hopes are that we can pour out God's love in a mighty way to bring more and more souls into the Kingdom, get them discipled, called into their purpose & destiny and released to do God's business!!!!  We also have a passion to give generously to help those in need and to help others launch into their God given destinies.

Exceedingly Abundantly More!!

Now to him who is able to do immeasurably more than all we ask or imagine, according to his power that is at work within us... Ephesians 3:20 


I don't want to beat you over the head with my Thrive Life business... but I do want to share a huge testimony.   Last month started off as normal.  And then my sales got to $8600.  I prayed that God would help me hit $10,000 as that's the next level and would earn me some additional points towards Cancun (and of course some additional pay).   A day or two after I prayed that, I noticed my sales hit $18,000.   I was like wow!! God did exceedingly abundantly more than the $1400 I asked for.   Well, the next level was at $25,000 and I thought - is it possible God, 2 weeks out and needing that much?  Well, anything is possible with God! Matthew 19:26.   God sent total strangers to my website with orders.  And on the last day of the month, I hit the goal.  Nothing like nail biting leaving it to the last hours.   Well, actually it was not until today before the "official" numbers computed in my virtual office.  God is always the God of the 11th hour isn't he.   I am so thankful for Him and for all of you! 

Safety News Alert and other new sources are urging people to get prepared!  https://www.safetynewsalert.com/news/whats-really-behind-spate-of-food-facilities-burning-to-the-ground-fbi-warns-of-trouble-to-come/.    Recently one of my mentors with this company attended a Corporate Event... and she said that Thrive Life is anticipating a HUGE surge of production and sales due to what's going on in the world.  They are bracing themselves and preparing for US!    If you would like more information - please email me at michele@wantinsight.com - and more info at the bottom of this post. 

Switching Gears!!!  Just a little testimony of God's healing touch! 

Several months ago, I met this lady who was diagnosed with cancer last year and sent home on hospice.  Her husband quit his job to be with her.   We have been building a relationship and she is most delightful.   A year ago as I said, she was told she had days to live.  It's been a year !  God has been sustaining her and healing her little by little.  Us and some other folks are visiting her and praying for her and each time, she gets stronger.  Not long ago, she broke her arm.  She didn't get any treatment or surgery for it due to hospice care.  I felt the Lord told me to share with her some of this Comfrey salve I had.  I did.  A friend of ours in Clinton Mo makes it. https://www.papatownscomfreyproducts.com/shop/comfrey-salve-4-oz   -   Her arm and hand was swollen and extremely painful.  She used the product and within a day all the swelling went down and now using it for a few weeks, she can tell her bones are healing and she is able to do more with her arm.  Wow!!!   I love when God gives a word of wisdom and it has impact! (of course it does, if it's from Him).   

I love to pray for people.  I love to hear God's voice to bring encouragement, healing or a touch to those in need.   

There is a lady in our home fellowship that had the Covid vaccine because she worked in a hospital. She was so concerned about the side effects.  I felt the Lord told me to pray for her that the injection she got would be a placebo effect. That there would be no side effects or any issues from it.   A month or so later she happened to look up the "lot number" and found that this lot number had NO side effects, no reported cases of any issues whatsoever.   She was so amazed and gave credit to the prayers and to the Lord of course!  

If you are wanting prayer, please let me know.  I am happy to pray for you!   Reach out and let me know.   Some of you have and some have seen some answered prayers!  Praise God. 

We are in precarious times....and many are feeling stressed or fearful over the unknown future..  Let's be the body of Christ and lift each other up to the throne room!   


And pray in the Spirit on all occasions with all kinds of prayers and requests. With this in mind, be alert and always keep on praying for all the Lord’s people. Ephesians 6:18


I feel led to ask again... here are a few ways you can help us = we still have credit card debt that we are trying hard to pay off - this is because of unexpected expenses & just the cost of living.  It's expensive here in MT.   We are also trying to get to KC in June... surprise Ken's folks for a family reunion, see the many friends we did NOT get to see or say goodbye too.   With Ken not having vacation pay and gas prices, we have a big need.

The Goodness of God!

 I would have lost heart, unless I had believed that I would see the goodness of the Lord in the land of the living. Psalm 27:13 

God is good, isn't He.  I want to thank you for those that responded to my previous blog (part of listed again below).  

This past week, the Lord has been speaking to me that He will bless the work of my hands.   At first, I was like, but what do I do with my hands that you can bless.  I'm kind of a literal person.  Well, duh.  He said when you write, when you blog, when you type, when you post to social media, when you cook for others, when you lay hands and pray for others, I will bless that.   This morning, He said, blog again and let others know what I am doing for you.  He wants you to know that the prayers you have been praying are being answered.  He is a good God.

1.  Back to Thrive Life - when the Lord told me to start doing this again in October, I agreed. I knew in my gut it was time.   I really am amazed at how many people are getting prepared for what may be pretty bad food shortages and hyper inflation on food, gas and other things.  I just read this - large food distributor burns down https://www.columbiagorgenews.com/fire-destroys-azure-standard-headquarter-facility/article_7df4657c-c03e-11ec-a8c2-5f88e266c6db.html

This past month or so, the Lord has brought me a few customers/consultants that are stocking up big time... by that I mean, one has spent $23,000 already.  Freeze dried food companies are barely keeping up.  So much product going in and out of stock.   That should concern you some and also encourage you to prepare.   Because of the increase in sales,  I have moved up the ranks 4 levels this month alone and am soooooo close to the next level.  (That happened literally overnight and I was so in awe of what God did, I cried tears of JOY - experiencing His goodness.    Totally unexpected!!!  And if that wasn't enough, one of the corporate employees messaged me this week and said that I was on target for the annual getaway trip.   I've heard of it, but definitely it wasn't in view or a goal.   So I checked into the trip.  It is 5 days and 4 nights in Cancun at https://www.barcelo.com/en-us/    - It includes hotel, flights, 3 meals a day at six 5 star restaurants and incredible sandy beaches.   Ken and I have been praying for a vacation for some time.  The last one we had was in 2010!!!    This would be amazing!    I feel like the Lord is telling me He will bless my hands and help us to get there!  We will see.   I only need $4500 in sales in April to reach the next goal.... 

My heart is not to beat people over the heads to buy, but to educate and help them make good choices for themselves and their family.  If the blessings come, all credit to God.   Let me give you an example this week.  A consultant of mine ordered around $9300 in food.  When I saw her order, it showed Retail and she paid over $600 in shipping.   So I called her and long story short, we called customer service together, changed it over to Monthly Delivery so she was able to save 15% and got FREE shipping.  God blessed me by helping her -she increased her food order to over $10,000.      

2.  Thank you to those who felt led to sow into us.  Your support helped us with a chunk of our tax bill.  It brought me to tears again.   I am so emotional lately with God's love and goodness.  Even know things aren't completely where I want them to be, I am seeing His hand and heart!

3.  And for those that have been praying for my healing.... it's coming.   I am seeing some improvement in the pain I've had in my back for almost 3 years now.  It seems like morning to late afternoon, the pain is quite tolerable... and then by early evening until bed, the pain creeps up.   I am thankful for any and all reprieve.  I've dealt with pain and health issues for 38 years now and I am extra worn out.   Sleep is better than 2-4 hours and yet still asking God for more consistent and continuous sleep.  It takes a while to fall asleep and I wake up often leaving me exhausted.  But the good news - there is improvement and God is working hard to bring me into healing!  I feel it!   I have also been using red light therapy - which I feel the Lord led me to - it can actually heal at a cellular level.  I've been doing this 3-5x a week for a few months - that may be the improvements I am seeing.  I think so! 

The Lord will open to you His good treasure, the heavens, to give the rain to your land in its season, and to bless all the work of your hand. You shall lend to many nations, but you shall not borrow. Deuteronomy 28:12 


I feel led to ask again... here are a few ways you can help us = we still have credit card debt that we are trying hard to pay off - this is because of unexpected expenses & just the cost of living.  It's expensive here in MT.   We are also trying to get to KC in June... surprise Ken's folks for a family reunion, see the many friends we did NOT get to see or say goodbye too.   With Ken not having vacation pay and gas prices, we have a big need.

   Email me at michele@wantinsight.com or call me 913 980 4440.

1.  Facebook Marketing - which I have room for one or two more accounts - this is where I help market your business or ministry on Facebook.  I have had 30+ years sales and marketing and the last 8 years doing Facebook. I took over 40 hours of training and am still actively pursuing further knowledge on how to increase traffic to your page and build a customer base.  I have had huge success with several companies over the years.  I am really geared towards small business.   So if you know of anyone who might want my services, I'd love to chat.

2.  I am also actively doing Thrive Life - long term food storage.   This is great for people who don't like the preparation to cook meals everyday, great for singles & families - no waste, fresh food.  25 year shelf life unopened & 1 year opened (with just a few exceptions).   Kids even love this - they'll eat vegetables right out of the can.   This food is amazing!  You can buy other products in the big box stores or online, but if you were to compare side by side - you would find this is far superior in quality and nutrition.  Thrive Life is the leading company out there.  They are proactive -and offer non-gmo, organic and mostly organic (some items they haven't paid for that label as to keep prices down).   They are a great company to work for.  For those that know me, know I am a foodie.   I've tried many other companies brands before I found this and this is the product I believe in and KNOW is good!   

With the ever increasing need to be prepared, food shortages, inflation, this is something I feel the Lord has asked me to be committed to.  You can check out my website at https://michelecole.thrivelife.com.   There are 3 ways that help me.        You can have a tasting party - and I can do it even long distance - over zoom! 

     a.  Be a customer - start a monthly delivery (can skip months) with a budget you can afford and prepare for what's here and coming.    If you bought from me before but went inactive, we can reactivate your account under my name.    By choosing monthly delivery  over $99 you get free shipping & a 15% discount.  They offer monthly sales that are worth looking at too!   Even the news channels are reporting to expect food shortages!!!!!  


     b.  Refer people to my website who may want to store food.  If you are a customer, you get a referral link.  When you share that link -you get discounts and free food when they order. 

     c.  Become a consultant - hear me out - you don't have to sell unless you want too.  People become consultants for several reasons.  One - they get paid 5% on everything they spend over $50. Did you hear that - you get paid on your own orders.  Two - if you share with friends and family you can build a residual income & earn free food.  Especially in the first 100 days.  Three - some (me) are wanting this to be a way to earn serious cash.  Yes, this is a MLM company - but there compensation plan can be quite lucrative.  I'm still learning all about this... there are some consultants who are "inactive" and still making 6 figures off residual sales  That would be my goal - not to be inactive -but to make a nice living so we can really step into full time ministry when God opens that door.  This would fund that!  

3.  We are trying to sell our timeshares.  We have two.  We have moved away from the area and there is no chance we will get back to use them.  

     Branson - http://rocklane.com/branson-yacht-club/

     2 bedroom, 2 full bath - sleeps 6, full amenities, kitchen, wifi - on the lake - beautiful views.  Down the street from Silver Dollar City.  Quite, peaceful location.   You get to use it 1 week every ODD year for life (but they are flexible on that).  You can also break it up to 3 nights and 4 nights in any given year.  Annual dues $330.  We are asking $5000 (includes closing costs).  Will consider other offers.  You can rent it out when not using yourself and get $500-$750 a week.  We've done that often throughout the years.  This is something you own and can pass down through inheritance.  You can also subscribe to RCI and trade this week for anywhere else.  We did that a couple of times. Branson has great trading ability.  

    Lake of the Ozarks -       http://www.lakeview-resort.com

    This is a studio condo- sleeps 4 - but more comfortable for just 2.  Kitchen & bath.  On the lake - full amenities.  Great out of the way location.  Annual dues $230.  We are asking $3500 (includes closing costs).  This is 1 week a year anytime for life.  

Oh... and great news, I am finally finally finally beginning to write books!  The Lord has put three books on my heart to get written - years ago, He actually put them on my heart.  With my health, lack of sleep it's been challenging to even consider writing.  I began this week and I am encouraged!   

Please let me know how I can pray for you - and how I can celebrate God's goodness with you! 

Hugs, love and prayers.

Vision

God has given us a vision to build a retreat property along with ministry equipping center.  

The retreat portion of our ministry is to provide a safe place for pastors, lay leaders & other ministry folks to come and be refreshed & encouraged through prophetic ministry (if wanted).  We will offer private cabins with kitchens & full bathrooms, and plenty of places to roam on the property to get quiet with the Lord. 

We will offer other specialty retreats - marriage, healing, prophetic teaching & activating people into the world & health and wellness retreats and more.  


The Lord has graced us with the desire to come alongside the Church - to bring healing, deliverance & freedom to new/newer believers.  We are not wanting to replace their church, but better help them be ready to serve in their church. 

In our community building - we will eventually have a 24/7 prayer room, healing & prophetic rooms and a place for community worship services for those on the property.  


Our passion is to minister to a lost & hurting world.   To equip the saints to do the same and to be a blessing to our community and surrounding areas.  Our hopes are that we can pour out God's love in a mighty way to bring more and more souls into the Kingdom, get them discipled, called into their purpose & destiny and released to do God's business!!!!  We also have a passion to give generously to help those in need and to help others launch into their God given destinies.

It's Only Sprinkling.... but some Breakthrough!

I will give thanks to you, Lord, with all of my heart; I will tell of ALL your wonderful deeds.  Psalm 9:1

Isn't it wonderful when God answers prayer?  

The last 2 months have been one financial hit after another.   Tax bill that was unexpected!  Car repairs, cell phone died & had to be replaced, rising costs of food, gas and necessities.  I think many of us are feeling the pinch.   The Lord has had me pretty transparent and it's quite humbling.  I never look forward to sharing the difficulties we experience but God must have a plan through it and His grace is evident.   It's still sprinkling but God is bringing us what we need, little by little, for which we are thankful.  God is a good provider! 

Ken got a side painting job that is keeping him busy every Saturday for 5 weekends (beyond his Monday through Friday job).  This job fortunately will cover 1/2 of the tax bill.  One of you sent us a gift and that helped a bit too. THANK YOU!  God gave me a new Facebook Marketing account and that will help pay the balance of what we owe to the IRS.  We had to put everything on a credit card which has been quite uncomfortable.  We haven't had debt (besides a mortgage) since the 1980's.     

Ken's family is having a family reunion in Kansas City in June.  Sssh it's a surprise.   Since his parents are up there in age, Ken felt we needed to go back.  It may be the last time we see them and/or other family.  We have some friends who have blessed us with the use of their home (they will be out of the country) for the entire duration.  What a gift. Not that we won't see them, but that we have a nice place to stay.  We are hoping to be able to save money for us to travel.  Oh my gosh, please tell gas prices to go down.  We only get 14 mpg in our vehicle.  We checked into rental cars and using other's points - but the cost are outrageous!  Ken does not get paid time off. I'm praying that his boss will reward his 4 employees with paid vacation time.  We know God is faithful and He will open doors of opportunity for us to go.    We are looking forward to seeing many of you!  I think we have like 90 on our list - between KC & Eldo- we didn't get to say good-bye when we moved due to covid.  Can you believe it's been 2 full years on the 9th since we've moved away?? 

I wanted to ask you to please consider a few ways you can help us pay off the debt and raise funds for our trip.   Email me at michele@wantinsight.com or call me 913 980 4440.

 4.  Last but not least - continue to pray for God's provision, breakthroughs and open doors for us to step into full time ministry - as He leads.  

We continue to meet people who are quite interested in the vision God has given us for a retreat/refuge property, self sustaining, off the grid and a 5 fold equipping center.  We have a home group that is growing each week and we are bursting at the seams in our little apartment.  We need to see the expansion and move into the property God has for us.  I cannot share details yet, but God is definitely ramping up conversations and information about this!  Yeah!   

Please continue to also pray for my healing.  I am sleeping better but it's not where I need it to be.  I am still dealing with intense pain - some days better than ever.   Sometimes I just hit the wall! 

Please pray for Ken - stamina - endurance with his job(s).  It is a lot of physical work. 


If you have a prayer need or a praise report you'd like to share, please email me.  I am so thankful for all the prayers and support you provide!  God is good!  

I pray that the eyes of your heart may be enlightened in order that you may know the hope to which he has called you, the riches of his glorious inheritance in his holy people.  Ephesians 1:18 

Now is the time.... 

Hugs, love and prayers.
