Six Quick Thoughts About What’s Happening Right Now
I hope this finds you well. We’re all dealing with a lot, I think. Here are a few (six, really) quick reminders, all of which I have to remind myself. 1. Right now, God remains surprised by nothing. We are promised troubles in this life. I’ve heard of people who abandon their faith when things […]
The Instant Sorority
Imagine suddenly being considered a freak. It’s because of your baby. Your baby was fine … until she wasn’t. Her head started growing to inexplicable proportions. You’ve never seen anything like it. Neither has your husband, who calls you cursed and abandons you. Your community, your family turn their backs on you, too. You are […]
This just might be the adventure of your life
CURE international is looking for some people, but not just any people. We’re looking for people who can help us heal the sick and proclaim the kingdom of God. CURE has a network of hospitals and clinics in 30 countries, and in those places of healing, lives are being changed. Kids with crooked legs and […]
To the Other 999 of You
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.
Paper crosses for Saeed
This isn’t about CURE, per se, but that’s okay: Want to join us, and make one of these? Saeed Abedini is an American, and he’s a brother in Christ. He’s suffering because of it, locked in a prison in Iran. His latest letter was about Christmas, and he mentioned how he was threatened and then […]
If you were a daddy
If you were a daddy, and had a sweet little girl like Evelyn, I bet you’d feel the same way.
You’d call her the “light of your life.” You’d love her more than life itself.
And you’d wonder why Evelyn – why does it have to be her? – was so broken.
Are you a hero?
At CURE, we affectionately call our friends who donate $35 a month “heroes.”
And you know what? We mean it. Here are four quick reasons why:
We GET to do this
You come across a little girl. She’s horribly scarred. She fell in a fire before she was a year old. Her horrified parents rescued her, but she was burned so badly, the bottom half of her leg was permanently stuck to the top part. Besides the massive scarring, she will be unable to walk the rest of her life. She’ll have no status, no chance at education, no marriage, no kids, nothing.
Brant Hansen: “I have a new job.”
I have a new job. I’m going to work with these people at CURE International. Please know, I’m not a particularly excitable person. But this is so cool I can barely sleep. And it’s not just the job, it’s the way it happened: I didn’t have anything solid lined up when I quit my last job.
