Tomorrow we will be meeting with a local organization and giving them some of the hand crocheted things that were lovingly made and given to us to give out a couple months ago for children in need. So glad that we had to delay delivering the goodies for the kids to the Director of Katie’s Christmas Hope, Duana Newcomb-Eckroat, until this Saturday, because we got a call this morning that we will post about later when we get all the details that will mean more goodies to take tee hee. SO PUMPED to be packing boxes for both Katie’s Christmas Hope and the local organization we are blessed to be helping! My heart is so full. ~Mikaela and the Heart 4 Children Ministries Team
Yet another strong hurricane –Patricia–is getting ready to wreak havoc, only this one is a monster one with unprecedented winds! Please join me in keeping the folks in the path of this monster hurricane in Mexico in your prayers!
Via John Kassell “Looking over the latest satellite and recon data for Hurricane Patricia and I just can’t help but to have chills run down my spine. With sustained winds at 200 mph, unbelievably, there is still a small window for Patricia to get stronger. With no weakening expected prior to landfall, wind gusts could be in the neighborhood of 250 mph at landfall. This is probably one of the few times I will ever say this, but the word “catastrophic” may be an understatement here. Patricia is forecast to make landfall between Puerto Vallarta and Manzanillo, Mexico (now Chamela, Mexico) later today.
God have mercy on these folks…”Instead of watching in shear horror as Patricia bears down on the SW coast of Mexico, let’s do something productive. Let’s begin a prayer chain. Thoughts and prayers to all those in the path of Patricia and that loss of life and property is as minimal as possible. Please share this far and wide.” Please continue the prayers until we know that all are safe; this is an unprecedented hurricane!! ~Mikaela
EASY & FUN FUNDRAISER. Would you be interested in supporting us by purchasing a t-shirt for yourself or t-shirts for your family or organization? For every t-shirt sold $5 goes to Heart 4 Children Ministries!
We have had some interest shown in our t-shirts and are considering designing some new ones. So we are asking for anyone and everyone who is interested to comment below or email us at firstname.lastname@example.org. To place an order for shirts where we’ve had them made before they prefer a minimum of 50 shirts (sz toddler through adult 3X.) So we would need a lot of people to order or families to order to be able to get them. They will be between $15 and $20 per shirt depending on size and what the company charges now. (Plus shipping if you don’t lice locally. The last ones we had made was in May 2012 so a new design is in order! This design was created by Mike at Sportees in Hamilton, AL where we ordered our last shirts. We may want to change this design or tweak it. ~Head Banana
Someone saw our story about how we delivered clothes to Crutcho School in Oklahoma City, OK last Saturday, September 5, 2015 on news9.com http://www.news9.com/story/29966837/small-ministry-makes-a-difference-to-oklahoma-city-area-kids and has contacted us to give us a large donation. Can’t wait to see everything and post pics once we get them picked up, but that’s not all! While we were in Oklahoma City we learned of other needs for kids there and are working on those today. We will be meeting halfway between Bartlesville, OK and Oklahoma City, OK to deliver the clothes for the other children we learned about on Saturday and picking up the donation we’ll be getting due to the news story! Thank you to newson6.com and news9.com for spreading the word about our small ministry we are so thankful!~The Heart 4 Children Ministries Team
