Tech Travels: Bekah in Zambia and Malawi
I will never ever stop loving these kids, this job, or these hospitals. Each hospital is so different. Once you’ve been to a handful, you see that CURE is a family. We may speak different languages, and we may all look different. Some may worship loud and with dancing, while others sing and bow their heads. But this mission, this organization, is special. It’s a huge and extremely diverse group of passionate people making it their life’s work to heal the sick and proclaim the kingdom of God.
Tech Travels: Bekah in Kenya and Uganda
I’ve come to the conclusion that this summer of traveling is awesome, but I have to stop thinking of it as something other than my life because it is real life. This is my life! This isn’t summer vacation or traveling for fun. It’s been powerful and stressful, and it’s been hard work.
Tech Travels: Bekah in Malawi
I stopped to get chicken and chips for lunch and met a gentleman. I didn’t catch his name, but he saw I had on a CURE sweatshirt and asked me if I worked for CURE. Eventually, he revealed that he’d had multiple surgeries at CURE for a broken arm, a broken leg, and a head injury. He was telling me how blessed he’d been by CURE, and how there was a orthopedic neurosurgeon who happened to be in the hospital while he was there to perform the surgery that he needed. It was an amazing story! He showed me the scar on his head while he was talking and kept telling me how much God has blessed him through CURE! As I left the store, I was so very close to crying. It’s moments like these that remind me why we do what we do here at CURE.
Tech Travels: Bekah in Ethiopia
I can’t believe it’s been a week since I first stepped foot in the hospital. I also can’t believe that in that week we’ve managed to get 11 nodes up and functioning! Tomorrow I will be finishing my final project, and then Wednesday we move the hospital completely over to the new wifi network! Thursday and Friday will be testing days, and then I’m finished! Every minute here has been amazing! This city is really growing on me, I’m going to miss it!
Tech Travels: Bekah in the Dominican Republic
Today I’m packing and getting ready to go. I’m nervous, but really excited! I can’t wait to get on that plane tomorrow and begin this amazing summer adventure. I can’t believe that I graduated one week ago! Every second, I thank God for this amazing life He’s given me.
