Oh no more rain in the forecast!!!

More rain and another Flood Watch (this one is for where I live)

Thankful that yesterday we saw the sun and that it is out for now but Northeast OK has had the WETTEST April on record after starting out with a drought! Now many areas–including mine–are again under a FLOOD WATCH! Some rivers just crested in the last day or so…Yikes!!! Should have got that kayak at Walmart yesterday!  Beginning to think it is April shower kill may flowers and May showers…well don’t know that yet! Stay safe and dry. How is the weather where you live? Please comment below. ~Mikaela & The Heart 4 Children Ministries Team

Forecast: Rain, Snow, Hail and Tornadoes all for the same weekend: Only in OK!

Then there’s this all this crazy weather for this weekend–floods, tornadoes, hail and snow all in the forecast for OK!!! Thought tornadoes and hail were not gonna be in the forecast…ONLY IN OKLAHOMA!! Be careful. ~Mikaela & The Heart 4 Children Ministries Team


Wow! Anyone got an extra boat?! Seriously, though, IF you live in OK or AR please be weather aware!! Severe storms beginning tonight. Most areas in OK & AR have a MODERATE RISK for: large hail, damaging winds and isolated tornado.
In addition, due to the extreme rain amounts predicted for the entire weekend (see below) Flood watches, Flash Flood Watches and Flood Warnings have been issued with anywhere from 2-10 inches of rain possible!!! Please take this seriously and save lives–TURN AROUND DON’T DROWN! For more info please click on the link below. ~Mikaela

Heartbreaking video of Haiti during and after Hurricane Matthew via news9.com Hurricane Matthew Hits Haiti Tuesday  Remembering the damage of the earthquake there in 2010 before Heart 4 Children Ministries was incorporated and why God wanted sleeping mats made for the children there. We no longer work outside the US, but our prayers go out to them. ~The Heart 4 Children Ministries Team

We contacted WV: No news yet on how many kids need our help!


We made contact with Emergency Management in WV as well as Red Cross today. However, since they are still out in the field it is still too early for them to have information for us on how many children need our help. We are closer, though, to getting that information from our Red Cross contact here in Oklahoma. It is likely that we will need to ship the toys, clothes and shoes, though, instead of delivering them in person as Mikaela prefers to do. If you would like to contribute to help us with shipping costs please click on our linkhttp://www.heart4childrenministries.org/?page_id=87 You can pay by check or on our secure PayPal link. As always we appreciate your help. ~Mikaela & The Heart 4 Children Ministries Team

What Happening With Heart 4 Children Ministries!


We spoke with the Red Cross representative in Commanche County, OK and are now waiting for a possible list of all the children that “suffered great loss” from the flooding on June 12, 2016 as well as a call back from Emergency Management in Garvin County, OK for the flooding there.

Meanwhile, God is preparing us for helping more kids as in addition to the 13 boxes we received from our partner in May with clothes, sandals and toys, we received one box Wednesday, one Thursday and one yesterday. We are so thankful for our partnership with Garan, Inc they are such a blessing! #feelingrateful ~Mikaela & The Heart 4 Children Ministries Team
