UPDATE 05/24/13 EARLY MORNING

Post  Cindieloohoo on Fri May 24, 2013 9:52 am

"We have officially transitioned from Search & Recovery to Clean-up... Okie's are well experienced and very efficient in the aftermath of these storms. It's so important to get things to near "normal" quickly to begin the emotional healing.

Our tasking has switched from servicing and ministering to relief workers, to the streets... ministering to the physical, emotional and spiritual needs of the victims. Yesterday and today was spent delivering water, food, diapers, formula, cleaning tools, toiletries and pet food to individual home sites. Each visit presented unique opportunities to pray over folks... sharing His love and grace at every chance. Thousands of bottles of water and Gatorade, food, clothing, cleaning materials, Bibles... We have a fleet of ATV's on loan that are used to reach areas still impassable by automobile.

Lives are being changed, and healing is being facilitated in so many ways. Everywhere you look, there are pairs or groups circled in prayer. To stand back and take it all in - complete devastation on the one hand and grateful tears on the other... We are constantly reminded how big and powerful God really is.

We continue to feel and appreciate your covering of prayer. Donations of goods and money have begun to arrive, affording us the ability to step things up. Victims have been overwhelmed by the outpouring of love... We continue to marvel at the special folks in this venue that have rallied together - and those you've encouraged to join in this effort. No doubt, our obedience has brought a smile to His face. All He ever asked was that we share His love. There's still much that is needed, and much more to be done, but the impact is clearly evident. What a team... what a family! Thanks & blessings!

We've arranged with Target to receive mail and package delivery in our behalf... saves us from running across town.
Please continue to share our love and appreciation for everyone's abiding love..."
