About Grace

I can never help but smile when God crosses unlikely paths and unites people for one particular purpose. That’s the case with Grace and a woman named Tammy. While working in a remote village in South Sudan, Tammy noticed a little girl with a severely deformed spine and got in touch with CURE. Because South Sudan lacks infrastructure and decent medical facilities right now, Tammy worked with our staff & the pastor in Grace’s village to schedule Grace for a surgery here in Kijabe.

Since I don’t think paraphrasing does this story much justice, here’s what Tammy told us in an email:

“The pastor was able to speak with Grace's caregiver, which is her grandmother, since her parents divorced and left her with the grandmother. Poor little girl has been through a lot. Her grandmother is so excited and so is little Grace.

Grace told her grandmother, "The white lady that took my picture will go to help me.” I had no idea she even knew what I was doing. I just happened to walk through her area, saw her, took the picture, never spoke a word to her and no one else was around. So for her to know I was going to get her help was totally the Lord speaking to her little heart. When she told people, they all laughed at her since no one saw me take the picture or that I had even been through that way. Now all the people have heard that "the white woman" is taking her to Kenya for help, and the pastor said this is a huge testimony for Christ to those people. So thank you for what you have done to help me help her. This is truly a God thing.”

  2. 02/23/2012Well, little Aguem/Grace said goodbye to us on Wednesday and headed into Nairobi to set up camp for 6 months. Because of her other health complications, we won't ever be able to operate on her back, but by treating the tuberculosis, we can prevent it from getting worse! So at this point, I'm hoping you'll keep her and her grandmother in your prayers as Aguem continues getting the TB treated & hopefully learns some English while in the city :) You guys are awesome, and I can't thank you enough for your support throughout this process. http://bit.ly/xmvDJ8
