God will make a way!


God is good all the time. My appointment at the US HAEA Angioedema Center gave Russell (my husband and fave volunteer) hope for the future. Thanks for your prayers. There will likely be more tests but so thankful for the answers that we did get. ~Mikaela

Golden Corral

Hey All–his news makes Mikaela both sad (for the employees) and mad (at the management)… there is a restaurant in Bartlesville, OK that closed without notice to their employees the night before last–bad business in Mikaela’s humble opinion. She is  telling you this as there may be needs from families that have lost their source of income and will be especially hard on single moms. Please keep the employees in your prayers.We will keep you updated on any needs that we receive.

Please keep Mikaela in your prayers!


For those of you who may not know, Mikaela is the Founder, President & Executive Director of Heart 4 Children Ministries, Inc. She prefers the title “Vision Caster” but can’t use that on any of the paperwork. Back in July 2013 she experienced a near death experience when her tongue swelled up to the point she could not talk, breathe or swallow. Since that time she has had many swelling episodes and the meds prescribed do not always help and she has had several hospitalizations since the July 13th one. If you would be interested in learning more about Hereditary Angioedema (HAE) you can go here http://www.haea.org/

Mikaela has an appointment this afternoon with a doctor at the US HAEA Angioedema Center at the University of California at San Diego (This center just opened last fall!) She has been diagnosed with HAE # 3 (there are three known types 1, 2 & 3). This doctor who has done research for Hereditary Angioedema for years is also known world wide as the best in his field. Please pray that God will guide him on what tests to order and on a definitive diagnosis for her. It is a God thing that she was even able to get an appointment with this doctor as he does not accept all referrals to him! Thankfully her husband, Russell, was able to make the trip with her.Their son, Collin, is holding down the fort at home and caring for their pets ~The Heart 4 Children Ministries Team

Elevated risk for the areas in red for this afternoon into evening. When it rains it pours…and maybe lightning…hail…high winds…no mention of the “T” word this time!

NWS Elevated threat 5.27.15


Scattered thunderstorms will be possible this afternoon into tonight as the air mass becomes increasingly unstable and a weak upper level disturbance moves across the region. There will be a limited severe weather threat with large hail and strong gusty winds the concern. Rainfall amounts will generally be between a quarter and a half an inch with locally higher amounts. Localized flash flooding will be possible with the stronger storms.

Take care if you are in any of these areas! ~The Heart 4 Children Ministries Steam
