To the Other 999 of You

I wish I could get a horse, and then ride it like Mel Gibson in Braveheart, right in front of you. I’d yell encouraging stuff about how awesome you are.

I’d like to do this because you deserve it.

I’d also like to do this because I’d just like a horse. I’d also like to paint half my face blue.

But mostly I wish to do this because you, if you’re a monthly donor to CURE, are an elite troop, a growing army of true compassion, which is now, for the first time ever… a thousand people strong!

We just hit 1,000 monthly donors. That’s huge for CURE. We’re thrilled, and I’m honored to be part of this. I hope it grows to 10,000 soon, because every single one of us means more healed children in the name of Jesus.

My wife and I started giving to CURE awhile back, but now that I know more about what CURE is doing, and I’ve seen behind the scenes at multiple hospitals, and I know how it all works… we give more.

Integrity matters, and I’m cynical by nature. So when I see something making this kind of dramatic difference, and all pointed at Christ, I want in on it.

We call our monthly donors “Heroes,” and it’s an apt name. The Greek root for “hero” just means “protector,” and you are defending the most vulnerable people in the world when you give to CURE.

I’m so glad you do, too. These kids are precious in God’s sight, and we – the CURE “heroes,” 1,000 strong – get to surround them with His love.

More kids walking. More kids running. More kids going to school and playing and giggling.

More moms and dads hearing and seeing that they are blessed, not cursed.

That’s what I’m talkin’ bout.

Forget the horse. And the blue paint. I’ll just stand here…

…with you.

I like this team.
