Lysan from Malawi on 3 days ago
Lysan's doing well! They gave him some pain meds this morning, and then checked out his graft. He was a bit loopy after, but now he's up and alert and was having a blast in the playroom again.

Ahmed from Niger on 3 days ago
So Ahmed's bandage free life was rather short lived as he got them replaced today. But, he's started walking around the hospital without any walker now! It's slow and tires him out, but he loves the independence and is slowly getting stronger! https://youtu.be/uOFZEt_1VPY

Newton from Uganda on 3 days ago
Newton has been discharged home today. Newton and Joyce had a good night; he cried a little but other than that, they slept well. We will see them again at the end of next month when they return to CURE for a follow up appointment. Please be praying for Newton to continue to recover well!

Souraya from Niger on May 25, 2017
Our little lady had her follow up appointment today. The doctors are pleased with the way things are coming together, but they're asking Souraya to stay a little longer so a specialist can take a look at her wrist next week!

Nafiou from Niger on May 25, 2017
Nafiou hung out with our spiritual staff where he learned about the Bible story where the sick man is lowered through the roof so he could reach Jesus and be healed!

Lysan's still not back to his usual cheery self, but he did manage to get into the playroom with the other kids and was sitting on the floor watching Megamind!

Dexter from the Philippines on May 25, 2017
As comfortable as the hospital gown feels like, Dexter is ready to return to his normal casual clothes. So after he got his final wound dressing, he changed to his regular outfit, ready to go home! In a few weeks, we'll check up on him to see how he's doing!

Jonamae from the Philippines on May 25, 2017
The day looks brighter as Jonamae continues to glow with a smile today. The soreness has gone down and she found a way to divert her pain into playing with the tablet. We slightly interrupted game time when we came by to drop off a purple bear that she gets to pack with her as she goes home today!

Henry from Kenya on May 25, 2017
We met our boy Henry at Kisumu clinic last week. He was lively and jovial like always. Indeed, his face reflected hope, the hope that "today he will not be put on a cast" and this was evident when George, one of our physiotherapists, removed the cast off his foot. He informed us that his left foot looked very good. Henry said "bye bye" to plaster and was then issued the orthotic and went home a happy boy. Since his left foot has healed, he is scheduled for another surgery. Lets continue praying for him even as we start the next journey for healing in his right foot!

Jewel from the Philippines on May 25, 2017
We were bragging on Jewel when she came in for her follow up today, saying how she never cried or complained after her hand surgeries. Apparently she saved it all up for today, poor thing! Her bandage change was pretty painful, and we saw a lot of sad tears. She rallied in the end though, maybe in part to the funny faces Dr. Jun made for her! She’ll be back in a week or so for a bandage removal and inspection, then hopefully she’ll be about done.

Newton from Uganda on May 25, 2017
Today Newton is being moved from the ICU back to the ward and the news made his mother happy! Last night Newton was vomiting after feeding, which is his doctors’ only concern now. Joyce is concerned with the shunt that was placed yesterday and is worried it will bring more problems, but is happy the surgery is finished. She has made several friends who also spent the night in the ICU. Please be praying for Newton to recover well.

Seid from Ethiopia on May 24, 2017
Seid wanted a picture, but as usual, his brother Abdu the trouble maker was behind him tickling him so that he could ruin Seid's photo!

Abdu from Ethiopia on May 24, 2017
Abdu received a bunch of ballon's today from our visitors! He gave us this great sneaky look and had a wide smile to show how thankful he was!

Haggai from Zambia on May 24, 2017
Haggai thinks so many things are funny, one conversation with him and you will be encouraged that life is not that bad after all. Today, he was talking about how watching soccer makes him happy, about how he thinks that the fact that he has not heard anything yet about what they are going to do about his situation is also funny and how that very few things really bother him. He is encouraging! The doctors are yet to decide what they will do for him, but they are considering a below the knee amputation. We will know soon. Please continue to pray for the process!

Lysan from Malawi on May 24, 2017
No smiles from our buddy Lysan today - he's just been lying in bed looking sad for most of the day, so please pray that he'll start feeling better soon and get his smile back! He'll be in the hospital for a while and has a wound inspection next week.

Bulko is doing great! Her leg is healing well and we will see her again in a month for another checkup!

Souraya is enjoying her time back with us and even joined us in our morning chapel service today!

Newton from Uganda on May 24, 2017
Today Newton had surgery where our doctors performed a ventriculoscopy, septostomy and placed a shunt. The operation made Joyce very nervous, so while Newton was in surgery, Joyce spoke with Simon Peter from our spiritual center. Newton is now out of surgery and resting in the ICU where Joyce can be by his bedside. Please be praying for Newton to have a quick and full recovery.

Timothy from Kenya on May 24, 2017
We didn't see our guy at clinic last week, but Lord-willing we will see him at clinic on July 13th. Hopefully he's just as smily and silly as always, enjoying school, and hopefully taking some steps toward walking!

Richard from Kenya on May 24, 2017
Oh man, we're not sure where Richard has been these past clinics, but we're praying it's somewhere fun and safe and that all is well! Fingers crossed, we'll HOPEFULLY see him on July 11th at our next Kisumu clinic.

Dexter from the Philippines on May 24, 2017
We just had to share Dexter’s fashion choice today! A hospital gown with jeans, coming soon to a runway near you! He admits that he’s still feeling a little sore, but he’s definitely happy to be done with the operating room. Today’s task is to just hang out and relax, then he’ll hopefully go home tomorrow.

Jonamae from the Philippines on May 24, 2017
Jonamae’s ward was full of frowns and tears today, but she was the glowing exception! “It still hurts a little, but I’m OK!” she told us with a grin. She was pretty sore yesterday afternoon after surgery, so that’s a huge praise report!

Haggai from Zambia on May 23, 2017
"Everything is so nice here! While waiting for the doctors to decide when they will amputate me, I have been so encouraged by the pastors here who led us in worship and prayers. I am not afraid anymore, my hope is restored and I have been strengthened," Haggai said confidently. Spiritual healing is already happening and we are thankful!

Lysan from Malawi on May 23, 2017
Lysan had his operation today and it looks like it's going well! Dr. Lubega and Dr. Baow released the burn contracture on his wrist to straighten it out, and are then going to cover it with a graft from his upper arm or potentially his leg - please be praying for him as he recovers, skin grafts are not fun!

Photo of Luka
Luka from Malawi on May 23, 2017
Apparently "come back when needed" was a lot sooner than we expected! Luka's back in clinic and was looking pretty glum when we spotted him - maybe he had just found out that he needed another operation. He'll be admitted this Sunday and will have surgery next week for one of his femurs, which is bowed and needs to be cut and re-rushrodded. Please be praying for him!

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.
