On the road with Chris Tomlin
We saw the church come together and come alive in worship. Chris Tomlin graciously shared CURE with over 200,000 fans and challenged them to worship with more than their praise by giving of their prayers, time, and resources. Across the nation, fans gave more than $700,000—enough to complete the funding for 700 surgeries for children with disabilities!
Trusting God with heart, soul, mind… and tooth fairy money
Each summer, churches around the country choose to support the ministry of CURE through their Vacation Bible School programs. It is a joy to see children here in the States helping children across the world! Not only are these Vacation Bible School programs changing the lives of our patients, but in giving, churches across the United States are being transformed through generosity. One such story has kept us smiling for weeks on end. Pastor Bill of Tri-City Church in California mentioned CURE on Instagram earlier this summer, so I reached out to learn more about their fun-filled week of Vacation Bible School. Here’s what he had to say.
Justice, Joy, and Generosity
A few weeks ago, I found myself crying at my desk. I realize it’s not the most “professional” response, but I just couldn’t help myself.

To my knowledge, I’ve never gone a year without a celebration.
It wasn’t until I heard Yolanda’s story that I fully appreciated the gift of being recognized, remembered, and celebrated.
A volunteer “sews” love into the lives of CUREkids and their families
Janet Kirkman, one of our valued volunteers, traveled to Uganda in the summer of 2013. For Janet, this trip was an opportunity to show love to many mothers of CUREkids through her gift of sewing.
Despite who I am and what I do, God is faithful.
July was an exciting month for the Global Outreach Office as we sent our first CURE U Team to Zambia! This trip was unique in that all of the team members are leaders of our CURE U chapters across the nation. For those who are unfamiliar with the program, CURE U is a nation-wide network […]
Closing the door in God’s face
For two years now there has been an ongoing dialogue between the Lord and me. It sounds a little something like this… I will make you as a light for the nations, that my salvation may reach to the end of the earth. (Isaiah 49:6) Maybe it’s not so much a dialogue, because I’ve been […]
