Kings – Live “well” on 10%
December 05, 2004


Releasing Kings for Ministry in the Marketplace

Live on 10%

Roy LeTourneau will be one of the featured speakers at our conference in Spokane right after Christmas.  Harold will also be ministering – these are both some of my favorite people.  We plan to have a “party” releasing Kings.  Your invited and here’s why!

Goals – add substance to your heart’s desire.  Most of us can daydream about what God could do with our lives.  Its fun, not just to imagine, but to set goals and start asking.

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…  Eph 3:20

I’m asking, “Lord please don’t let me just write a book about Kings – I want to be one too!”  Here’s my goal Lord, “live on 10%.”

RG LeTourneau was Roy’s father.  He was involved in construction, and was an innovator of many earth moving machines (one is called “the LeTourneau”… used to build many of the highways you presently drive on.  The Lord blessed RG to the extent that he lived on 10% of his income and sowed 90% back into expanding the Kingdom.  This week I’ve adopted that as one of my goals – and I really am on a track to see it happen.

Our Father has a peculiar trait.  He doesn’t just meet our needs he overflows the cup.  Imagine holding out your cup… the Holy Spirit is filling it watching the Father’s eye.  The cup starts out empty (our needs aren’t met) and the Father says pour.  Now the cup is near the top (our needs are met)… The Holy Spirit keeps pouring – there’s no signal from the Father to stop.  We look dismayed… coffee is spilling on the table… the Holy Spirit keeps pouring – there’s no signal from the Father to stop.  Now the coffee is running down the table cloth and on to the floor… the Holy Spirit keeps pouring.  Get the picture.  God’s definition of “enough” is always “too much.”  When you ask for coffee there may be enough to feed 5000.

Our Need has nothing to do with God’s abundance.  Its nothing for God to exceed my definition of abundance 10 fold.  So one of these days I’ll write telling how all of my needs are met, no longer even close to living paycheck-to-paycheck.  Every month there’s 9 other parts to use expanding the Kingdom.  Want to know a secret?  I didn’t invent this goal… I didn’t even steal from RG LeTourneau or his son Roy… It’s God’s plan for Kings – always has been.  He’s looking for people that he can empower to expand the Kingdom – Kings.  Make it your goal too!

I was talking with Steve Brown who has worked with Roy in the past.  He used his overflow to support the church growth movement in South America in the 80’s.  We’ll learn more at the conference as Roy brings us up to date.  We’re going to hear what its like to live on 10% and expand the Kingdom with 90%.  I’m betting the Lord uses Roy to actually impart that same anointing to other Kings… and wanna-be’s like me.

See you there

(12/4/04, referring to Choosing Life Pt 2) Dear John and Harold, There is a saying among many businesspeople when they pray to say, “Lord, I seek Your face and not Your hands.”  Well, there is a balance to that statement.  Some have sought His hands and not His face, but I say, “We need to seek both His face and His hands.”  That’s what Matthew 6:33 stresses, and I paraphrase for emphasis: Seek first the kingdom of God [His face] and His righteousness and you have everything else besides [His hands].  It is going to take billions of dollars to take the gospel of the kingdom to the ends of the earth!The kingdom is the real!  All else is a shadow!  When you have the kingdom, you have the King, and in Him there is everything!  Some people are like Francis Thompson in his poem, The Hound of heaven: “they fear having Him they would have nought [nothing] besides.”  Well, when we have the King, there is nothing else we lack!  He is the All-Sufficient One!

Thank you for your Releasing the Kings for Ministry in the Marketplace.  I have given several copies away and recommended it to many more who are hungry to know what you share!  Love in the King,

Laverne C. Ihm

Friends Tell Friends

Harold and I have both been hesitant to “market” this book… sounds self-serving.  Here’s the “grassroots” reality.  God has given us a great tool to communicate a message that sets people free in an amazing, contagious, life-changing way.  If you haven’t read it – get it.  If you have read it – give it.

We’ve gotten a ton of positive feedback on the newsletter too… get it, give it.  Reloading Seniors was powerful.  Pass the link on.

Kingly Bio’s

We’re in the process of putting together a study guide that will include some testimonies of kings.  Their successes, failures, vision, etc.  If you have a story that would bless others, let us know.  We’ve got several done and more planned.  We’d love to interview and write up your story as well.  The goal is dozens.




John & Harold

PS: don’t forget to look at the free reports – Especially the one on your heart’s desire.
