Chimwemwe from Malawi on Yesterday
Today we read Chimwemwe your get well messages and she was all smiles! She says, “I am so blessed by the messages I received today. Though I do not know you personally, I am glad that you are wishing me well. I have full faith that Ethel is fine together with my family. I haven’t spoken to them in a while, since my admission. May the good Lord bless you for thinking about me.” Chimwemwe is still in the hospital and is continuing physical therapy as well as the turning of her frames. Thank you for keeping Chimwemwe and her family in your prayers!

Massaouda from Niger on Yesterday
Today was surgery day! Massaouda was calm and composed as she went in, ready to get it done with. This time around, the doctors separated her index finger from her middle finger. It was a simple surgery, identifying the finger bones and then rearranging the tissue back into a functional finger shape! Massaouda is back in the ward sleeping off the meds now and we'll check in with her again shortly, Also, thank you for the slew of get well messages you all have sent her. We were able to deliver them right before she went into surgery and send her in with a smile!

Hadija will start walking without her cast! Her examination went well and she does not have any problem with her knees. She got a KAFO(Knee Ankle Foot Orthosis) to help her walk and she will start practicing soon! Thank you all for your prayers!

Joyce from Malawi on 2 days ago
Joyce loves her new friends at the hospital - Alice, Rachael, Deborah and Cynthia! Today we caught them all on Joyce's bed with big smiles hugging each other! It was the cutest thing! They all loved having their pictures taken and were being super goofy! Their laughs made the other children and guardians laugh. What a fun day of shenanigans!

Patience from Uganda on 2 days ago
“I am happy because I am seeing a big change in the baby. The change I have seen - before she had tears in the eyes, the tears have stopped rolling. The baby’s head was hot and it looked like much pressure, now the pressure is reducing and the head isn’t hot anymore. I am praying that the change will be permanent,” said Harriet, she continued, “I am okay. I am now at peace, I have been watching praise and worship on TV.” Harriet along with a couple other mothers went up to the out patient department’s waiting area and watched a few worship videos this morning before returning to the ICU. “They told me that I would be transferred to the ward today and there is a high likelihood that we will go home tomorrow,” said Harriet. Please be praying for Patience that she will continue to recover well from her surgery and that this will be the last operation she needs.

John has gone home! After applying casts on both his legs, he has been discharged but he will be back after only a couple of weeks. His legs have attained very good correction so far, pray that when he comes back for his follow up review they will be fully corrected and entirely healed!

Francis from Kenya on 2 days ago
There’s more than one smile in this photo of our sweet Francis. Can you see it??? We were painting casts in the ward for a project and we gave Francis something special on the bottom of his cast! He’s got reason for all the smiles too because he got to go home today! He had his cast changed to help improve his foot shape even more and after a cast change and resting and giving us some smiles, he and his dad left. They’ll be back at the end of next month for another cast change. Pray that the smiles last that long (and even longer) for our boy!

Sarah from Malawi on 2 days ago
Sarah has showed up in the hospital not to say hi, see us, or because she misses us! But, she's here because she developed a problem with her bone near the frame, so sad! There is still two more months until her review date. Her mom Monica says, “I decided to bring her back after seeing that there was a bone which was coming out near the frame. I did not want to delay and go to a local clinic, rather come straight here.” When we asked Sarah about how she is feeling she just smiled and said, "am fine". We are hopeful that Sarah will get all the medical attention she requires to get better. Doctors have seen her and are planning on what to do next. Please pray for her healing!

Patience from Uganda on 3 days ago
“I have no problem, everything I am leaving in the hands of God,” said Harriet, she continued, “I am praying. I am praying a lot, really praying God may heal the child.” This morning before taking Patience to surgery, nurse Elizabeth prayed for Patience to have a successful operation. Every child who goes into theatre at CURE Uganda is prayed for at least twice by the staff, first by the nurse taking them to the operating room and then by the surgical team before they make the first incision. In addition to the medical team praying for the children, the spiritual team meets with the families who have children going into surgery that day. Patience is currently in surgery and her doctors are placing a shunt, please join Harriet and the staff of CURE Uganda in praying for Patience!

Francis came in with his mom and dad today! He must be pretty special and we know he is! He has to go to theatre to have his cast removed but because of the timing, he needs to wait until tomorrow, so it’s sleepover at CURE Kenya for tonight!

Patience from Uganda on Sep 19, 2018
“The doctors said they will take (Patience) for a scan and then depending on the scan, they will plan accordingly,” said Harriet. Patience and she are both doing fine, Patience has been eating well and they have no concerns now that they are at the hospital. “I have made many friends who have made my life easy, also the staff who know my language,” said Harriet. What Harriet does with her friends is, “Mainly we welcome the new patients, we seek them out and show them the hospital - where to find things and the programs at the hospital,” said Harriet. “If my child ever becomes okay I don’t know what kind of thanks I can give to God and the hospital,” said Harriet.

Please pray for Patsani's safe trip home!

Obert from Zambia on Sep 18, 2018
Another day with more to time to spend with others! Because of his current state, there is no need to be confined to a bed therefore Obert is spending most of his time outside. He is waiting to get another cast on his left leg and will probably go back home after that. Please continue praying for Obert's healing!

Nathan from Zambia on Sep 18, 2018
Nathan was outside on the lawn with our social worker Muke who went to talk to him. Her observation was how Nathan has gained weight and thinks it's because he had limited activity at home because of the casts. He has gotten used to our hospital environment and feels free to talk more now, he's grown much more comfortable since his first visit!

John from Zambia on Sep 18, 2018
We asked John if he plays with friends and he answered, "Yes I used to play with my friends, we used to throw the ball around." His mother even mentioned that when she would leave home he would go away crawling to join his friends to play. Today he decided to show us how much correction his legs have attained and they are looking very good!

Patience from Uganda on Sep 18, 2018
“My prayer is that Patience gets well soon because I don’t want to lose another child,” Harriet says. She shares that the pastors at CURE Uganda keep encouraging her and that restores her hope. This evening she gave Patience a nice warm bath and spent most of the time lying with her in bed. Please keep Harriet and Patience in your prayers!

Hadija from Ethiopia on Sep 18, 2018
Hadija was having fun playing cards with her friends Tadesse and Zakir! She is doing very well and showing great progress! She has been walking well with her cast but today she tried walking without a cast and she wasn't able to do that quite yet. Tomorrow she will have an examination under anesthesia to see if there is a problem with her bone. If everything turns out to be fine she will practice walking without a cast! Please keep her in your prayers!

Patsani from Malawi on Sep 18, 2018
Today Patsani is calmly waiting for her turn into the theatre, she is going in this afternoon. Patsani says, “I am not afraid of going into the theatre again because I have full faith that doctors will make my legs to be in a proper shape.” Amazing! The plan after the removal of the 8-plates, is to make sure that Patsani’s legs are straight and have the same length. Please keep Patsani in your prayers!

Why I Support CURE

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.
