Despite the look Halid gave us, he is doing great! He had a tenotomy and it went really well! We will see him again in three weeks when he returns for a brace fitting!

Lonjezo from Malawi on Mar 28, 2017
Lonjezo is back for a physio appointment! She needs a new shoe raise but unfortunately, her mom didn't bring the right shoe to get it, so she'll need to come back again soon for that. Diana, our physiotherapists, says she's doing well and is walking around a bit, but that she cried during physio. Please be praying for her!

Our physiotherapists Ashenafi and Fasika told us that Halid is done with his casting and he is ready to have a tenotomy. He will return next week to see the doctors so that he can get a date for his procedure! Please keep him in your prayers!

Halid clearly did not want his casting today, but our physiotherapies Fasika and Ashenafi played with him for a bit and that made him a little more comfortable with the whole process! He had his third casting today and we will see him next week for the fourth one!

We didn’t get to see Martha at clinic today, but we did get to see some other kiddos! We’re praying for Martha though, especially that she’s falling in love with school! Please pray with us and look for an update hopefully next clinic on May 17th.

Christopher from Kenya on Feb 09, 2017
We are not yet where we want to get with Christopher. It's a slow process but we are making progress. It's always great hearing his father give back a positive report, that he is seeing some improvement and even though it is small, it is there. Chris is able to move his neck more every time he comes. Today they were reminded that they need to keep doing the exercises, and again shown the right way to do it. Kindly pray for strength and patience for his father as he keeps helping with the exercises everyday, that he will not grow weary!

J-Vie from the Philippines on Jan 20, 2017
"Do you have a girlfriend already?" asked Dr. Badjun to J-vie. His legs look so good and he's growing well that Dr. Badjun thinks he must have a girlfriend by now! And that's before he added, "But do not get married yet! It's too early!" Since he's still in high school, that's not one of J-vie's concerns, he's just happy to know that his wounds have healed well and are ready for the next step- taking out the plates! It's been a long journey but he's almost there!

Martha from Kenya on Jan 18, 2017
Martha did finally start school, and we know that because today she showed up at clinic looking sharp in her school uniform! She is now in grade one and she is loving it. Today was also her lucky day, when she came for clinic she met another one of our CUREkids, Keya, who has been in school for a while now and is in grade three. We introduced them and we hope the two will make great friends and Kaye can help her settle in. Martha had come to get her legs checked. Unfortunately, not much has changed since we last saw her and she still needs the repeat surgery. But for now, her guardian told us that their major concern is another major surgery that Martha is scheduled to go for. We didn't get much time to talk about the surgery but we know that it will be happening at Kijabe Mission Hospital located right next to CURE Kijabe in May. We will get more information about that when we see her again in March, our next Kitale clinic. For now, Martha will keep using braces, and we hope and pray for the best as she prepares go for the surgery. Let's keep praying for healing for this lovely girl.

Keya from Kenya on Jan 18, 2017
Today we managed to gather some more info about our very reserved friend, or so we thought until today, when we had a chat with his teacher who brought him for his follow up. Apparently, Keya is not so reserved and quiet back at school, he is quite the opposite; he loves to have a good time and he even plays soccer, he plays defense and he is good at it. Quite unlike the quiet boy who almost never leaves his seat and says almost nothing at clinics. Now that we know what makes him tick, we will try to engage him some more in the future! Keya today also got to meet Martha, another of our CUREkids who joined grade one at his school. So now, Martha has big brother to help her settle in. Keya is otherwise doing great, he had come to get his shoe straps fixed.

Eliud from Kenya on Jan 18, 2017
Eliud came today and he is as cute as ever! As the doctor tested his legs for pain, he was so good about answering her. The way he acted, it was sort of like he had ‘been there, done that.’ Eliud’s condition has reverted, so he will have to come back for surgery sometime this year. We don’t know if it will be during his April or December school holiday. After his mother gets some things sorted, we will know more of when he will come for surgery. In the meantime, pray for this little guy to enjoy his time in school and not worry about his upcoming surgery.

Quinter from Kenya on Jan 17, 2017
Someone today got a chance to pose for a photo with our Executive Director, Abed. Quinter was today in the company of his mother, and his brother Brian. As they left, Quinter and Brain got to meet Abed, who had joined us for mobile clinic today and pose for a photo with him. The sad news is, Quinter needs another surgery. Unfortunately, Quinter’s leg is not doing so well and she has to come back to the hospital for another surgery. She couldn't get an admission date today but our social worker will keep in touch with them and we will let you know when she gets scheduled to come for the surgery. Quinter’s mum was especially not happy with the news of another surgery. Please continue praying for this family, that they will look up to Jesus for strength through this period of healing.

Lonjezo from Malawi on Jan 17, 2017
We saw Lonjezo in clinic today for a follow-up appointment! Her mom says she's doing well and is getting steadily better! She's just getting some physiotherapy and a shoe raise for today. We don't know when she'll be back for her next rush rodding, but she should be set for a couple years before she outgrows the rods that are already in! In the meantime, we'll probably see her every couple of months for checkups and physiotherapy.

Jeron from the Philippines on Jan 12, 2017
Sorry guys, no hilarious quips from Jeron today, he was too busy fighting off the Tickle Monster, aka, CUREkids Coordinator Hope Kim! The two sang “We Wish You A Merry Christmas” together, warming up for the holiday season just months away here in the Philippines, and somehow dissolved into a tickle fight. He’s doing great, the arm is looking good, so now he can refocus his attention to planting eggs or whatever our little goofball decides to do next!

Jeron from the Philippines on Dec 02, 2016
"I'm going to climb a coconut tree, so I can plant carrots!" says Jeron. Mr. Chatterbox was happy to be up and moving today, he's so excited to do more than just exercises with Alex. He's headed home today, and can probably help his grandma plant carrots in the ground, but we're not so sure about being able to climb a coconut tree! We will miss his silly imagination and we look forward to hearing more when he comes back!

How precious is this smile?! Jeron was in such a sweet mood this morning as he raised his eyebrows to affirm that he was doing OK. He stayed comfortable in bed as he squeezed in another nap in the afternoon. Healing is going well with Jeron which means he might be going home soon!

Why I Support CURE

Tomlin-video-still_web
Chris is excited to join CURE for the same reason most of us are part of it: Seeing the Kingdom of God at work in kids lives. "Kids right now who can't walk, they're being carried, who can't go outside because their faces look different… they get to be kids again. Because of CURE… because of you and me and everyone else involved, kids will be kids again, and be able to walk and run.
