Story of Isaiah

I always like getting messages like these in my email inbox.

This message was from Ruth Castro, the executive director at our CURE Honduras hospital. She sent us a story about a patient named Isaiah who had surgery at the hospital for clubfoot.  After his surgery, he can now walk like normal for the first time.

He is one of six children; he is the oldest, 13 years old. Isaiah lives in one of the nearby mountains about 16 miles from the hospital in San Pedro Sula. According to Ruth, he helps his father cut grass and take care of the corn field.

After his surgery, he said:  “I would like to be a doctor and a soccer player. I give thanks to God for this hospital.”

The Honduran publication La Prensa ran a story about Isaiah and the hospital.  To read it and check out a photo of Isaiah, go here. (Note:  It is has been translated from Spanish into English by Google Translate. Please note Google Translate doesn’t translate from Spanish to English perfectly, but it will be readable.)
