The CURE blog turns 2 years old

181,147

That’s the number of words that have been published on the CURE Blog since September 24, 2009. By comparison, that’s equivalent to a 650+ page novel. If you’ve been here for all 181,147 words, give us a shout out by leaving a comment.

Just over 2 years ago, CURE decided to launch a WordPress blog as a platform to communicate in an authentic and timely way from the places all around the world where CURE works to the people who help make that possible: our supporters, fans, and staff.

In those 2 years, we’ve gone from talking to you just a few times a month to almost 60 bloggers throughout CURE (we’re always looking for more), telling the different stories of CURE’s work from a dozen or more countries throughout our network of hospitals and programs. We’re glad to be able to talk to you more frequently, and hopefully the blog has allowed you to gain a larger perspective on CURE’s mission to the children and families we are privileged to serve.

Who’s work is it?

At CURE, we regularly remind ourselves that this work – the work we have all dedicated our lives to – is first and foremost God’s work. God is the one who is healing bodies and changing lives everyday, and we are all privileged to be a part of what God is already doing in the world.

You who read this blog on a regular basis, share CURE’s story with others, volunteer with CURE, work for CURE, and donate your attention, gifts, or voice are a part of that as well. Together, we all make up the community of folks “healing the sick and proclaiming the kingdom of God” that is CURE, and we’re sincerely grateful to you for making the work of CURE International possible.

We look forward to even greater things in this year on the blog and throughout CURE. Thanks and have a great weekend.
