April and May 2016 have proven that folks in the plains and elsewhere need to be prepared for not only tornadoes but straight winds, hails and floods! This week looks to be shaping up to be another week where we may have to deal with  any or all of the elements of severe weather: hail, high winds, flooding and yes the dreaded “T” word–possible tornadoes!

Our concern is especially for the kids as they depend on their parents and caretakers to keep them safe! This week there are chances for severe weather almost every day and not just in OK!  One of my favorite colors is red, but not when it’s on a severe weather map!! We have already begun praying! ‪#‎Mayweather‬ ‪#‎okwx‬ #severeweather ~Mikaela and the Heart 4 Children Ministries Team

We are blessed to have been able to help 13 OK Tornado Survivors Today!

Today

God is so good, look at all the clothes and shoes we were able to bless the 13 kids with today!!! Pics of Coko the (worn out but very loved on) Disaster Relief Dog will be posted shortly. The kids loved their new clothes and shoes and enjoyed spending time with Coko. One of the kids begged us (and her Mom) to let her take Coko home with her because “she was so cute and she needed a dog for inside–so adorable!” We are so thankful to God and all of our donors for helping us to make this happen. ~Mikaela & The Heart 4 Children Ministries Team

Ok Oklahoma & Kansas It’s May!

Storm zone Monday

According to Tulsa’s Channel 6 Meteorologist Stephen Hehrenz’s Weather Blog:
“Severe storms are expected to develop by late afternoon Monday near the I-35 corridor, moving into eastern Oklahoma by early Monday evening. All modes of severe weather will be possible, including large hail, damaging winds, and even some tornadoes. Don’t be scared, just be prepared!” This girl will be prepared as we had wind damage–not tornado damage– from the storms that hit Bartlesville, OK on 4.26.16; that day we had a moderate risk as it shows for tomorrow. The threshold of the french doors in our family room were ripped out and both doors flew open with a gust of wind of 60+ mph so we are having to replace our french doors. Thankfully no one got hurt and it wasn’t worse!

Alrighty then you heard it here, hoping for no severe weather for tomorrow but…it is May so I will be praying for God’s protection especialy for the children. ~Mikaela & The Heart 4 Children Ministries Team
