Healing for tomorrow: CURE and medical training
The heart of CURE is to bring these children the healing they desperately need. We do this every day through hospitals and specialty programs in 30 countries worldwide. Meeting this immediate need, though, is not enough. The deficit of available medical care, combined with the growing population in the world’s most underserved countries, means we need a greater pool of medical professionals to be able to meet those needs for more children.
Grateful for a Life Well-Lived
One year ago today, the CURE International family endured the worst attack in our history when a lone gunman murdered three friends within the gates of the CURE International Hospital in Kabul, Afghanistan. Among the victims was my colleague, Dr. Jerry Umanos, a hero in the truest sense: someone who gave up his life to […]
An operating room worship service in Zambia
Earlier this year I traveled to CURE Zambia with a group of church leaders. I asked a good friend of mine, Tich Dzinotyiwei, to join us. Tich was one of my best students when I led the Theological College of Zimbabwe, and he went on to become the head of his denomination, working with Baptist congregations all over Zimbabwe.
CEO Statement Regarding Shooting at CURE International Hospital in Kabul, Afghanistan
It is with deep sadness that I write today, mourning the loss of three lives that were taken by force at the CURE International Hospital compound in Kabul, Afghanistan. One of these men, Dr. Jerry Umanos, had faithfully served the Afghan people as a pediatrician at the hospital for more than seven years, caring for […]
Working together to heal body, mind, and heart
As you may already know, CURE’s model of spiritual ministry relies heavily on our partnerships with local pastors and church planters in the countries we serve. Wherever possible throughout our network of hospitals and programs, our spiritual ministry teams build intentional relationships with local church leaders in order to ensure opportunities for pastoral follow-up outside of our hospital and clinical settings.
I want to encourage you to visit cure.org/getwell and send a get well message to a child. It will become a cherished message that provides another way for us to join together and share God’s love with these precious children.
The Kingdom in Action
As we celebrate Christmas and rejoice over the giving and receiving of gifts, I’d encourage you to pause and think about how you came to connect with CURE and the impact it has had on your life. I can say with absolute certainty that your support, no matter what form it has taken, has made a lasting impact on the children and families in our care around the world. To you and yours, have a very merry Christmas and a happy New Year!
In Memory of Layton Shoemaker
To the CURE family: Tuesday, January 1, CURE International received sad and unexpected news in the passing of Layton Shoemaker. He was 70 years old. After decades of service at Messiah College, Layton joined the leadership team of CURE International and from 2000-2009 spent nearly a decade supporting the development efforts of CURE’s mission to […]
Dan Terry – Carpe Crux Crucis
I came across this photo of Dan this morning. When I took this picture, one afternoon in Kabul, I remember thinking that it captured pretty well the essence of the man who was Dan Terry. There is a youthful, almost boyish grin on his face, coupled with eyes that look for every opportunity to seize […]
