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

We Remember the April 26, 1991 Tornadoes in OK and KS

Oologah tornado damage 1991

Tornado damage from Oolagah, OK tornado 4.26.91

On this day in 1991 my husband, Russell Hulstine, was at the Copan Handi Mart that night…he ran inside to warn a woman working there that the tornado was almost there…then he headed to Oolagah, OK…

Andover, KS tornado damage 4.26.91

Andover, KS tornado damage 4.26.91

 

His cousins who lived in a mobile home in Andover, KS got out in time, thank the Lord, before a tornado leveled the mobile home Park of 300. Scary day. Thankful Russell wasn’t killed  in Copan as the tornado hit the Copan Hand Mart while he was still in the parking lot!!!

What Happening With Heart 4 Children Ministries!

newsflash

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

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
